My name is Wayne Dupree or as most of you know me by, Newsninja2012. I am and have been committed to exposing the Democrats in a way that has been frowned upon by some conservatives and cheered by many more. I feel it’s our responsibility as conservatives to fight back against the liberal hate machine and meet them head on with like-minded strength and dedication.

Former Senator from Pennsylvania Rick Santorum had probably one of the most thought-provoking, substantive speeches this past weekend in St. Louis. The Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) put on a great show this weekend, if it were only for one day LOL.

Rick Santorum came out to a gathering of cheers and applause and tore it up from there. Our positions over the last 30-40 years has been defense. Here’s the issue, we are the ones with the truth, why are we playing defense. They are the ones telling the stories and we have to get better at telling these stories. After all song lyrics are easier to remember than “Heritage Foundation talking points,” he says. We need to frame our policies not in opposition or outrage, but in true concern and respect for our great country.

However, this doesn’t mean Republicans should sacrifice their principles. “Jesus never compromised on what was right – but he told people stories so they could understand it,” Santorum argued.

Engaging in the culture, community, and the church are the key first steps, according to Santorum. Don’t separate yourself from people who don’t agree. Effective storytelling is the key to making the Republican positions marketable.

    This was absolutely conscience searing truth. He did a great job with this speech, did a tremendous service by giving a motivational shot in the arm to conservatives to get out there and DO something about it. Rick Santorum walks his talk and lives out his beliefs. He always has. He is THE ultimate conservative culture warrior of our time. He has been a voice crying in the wilderness on this very issue for years now and it’s high time people listen and get on board with him. Just think if we had been doing just that when he made the clarion call back in the 90’s instead of cowering away in our politically safe politically correct corners of life so we won’t be unfriended or unfollowed by family, friends, and co-workers. We have lots of ground to take back and we do it just as he said. We have the truth on our side, so let’s show it, proclaim it, live it in every aspect of our daily lives as much and MORE than do the progressives who have done so for the last few decades. No more sitting back and just taking it. Time to PUSH BACK and reclaim lost territory. I’m with Santorum 100%.
