ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Republican presidential nominee Rick Santorum’s near-victory in Iowa last week signals a huge victory for America, too (“Romney edges Santorum in historic Iowa caucuses,” Web, Tuesday). It indicates that the country is on the road to moral recovery.

The United States is experiencing a serious crisis of morality. It lacks strong political and moral leadership. The only candidate seriously capable of altering this sad state of affairs and re-establishing the United States as a nation in touch with its democratic roots and moral foundation is Rick Santorum. He is militantly pro-life, morally consistent and politically courageous.

Mr. Santorum once stated, “America is first and foremost a moral enterprise that will not remain free without a good, strong moral compass.” When morality disappears, when men begin treating each other as mere commodities through the practice of contraception, abortion, genetic manipulation and homosexual “marriage,” then everything else, including the economy, falters.

President Obama promised Americans great things. He challenged the people to have “the audacity of hope” and told them to put their faith in his anti-life, anti-family policies. In return, he brought economic and moral despair to the people.

Americans are bursting at the seams to have a leader in whom they can believe and who, in turn, believes in them and the country. That man is Rick Santorum.
