All he is saying is give pizza chants.

I don’t know about politics, but I’m always ready to give pizza A CHANCE!
I am very impressed with Newt Gingrich. I know he’s had some indiscretions in the past but I think his conversion to the Catholic Faith is genuine and he’s dealt with his marriage irregularities in accordance with the Church. In the debates his command of the material is breathtaking and he has managed to maintain a dignified demeanor. I would love to see him debate Obama. Newt would demolish him.
I think Catholics should really consider Ron Paul. He is by far the most pro-life candidate: the only person to address abortion by name in his “issues” section, the candidate who proposed the Sanctity of Life Act, and the one who has been speaking out against abortion the longest. In addition, he is the only candidate who would truly shrink the size of the federal government and weaken its ability to interfere with the Church’s work. His views are always presented as ridiculously extreme by the media, but that is just them trying to tap into the fear that chaos will rule if the federal government doesn’t do everything for us. http://files.meetup.com/504095/Ron%20Paul-Abortion%20and%20Liberty.pdf
Yes, Ron Paul.
The only candidate stands for;
No death penalty
Christian just war
At this point, I am digging just about ANYBODY ELSE other than the person who currently holds the position of President of the Untied States.
I find Rick Santorum to be the best among the candidates. He is pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, no ifs and buts about it from the very start. Not afraid to stand up to true Catholic universal values.
I am digging him too, but I have criticism. He is weak on gay marriage, saying that he will not seek a constitutional amendment but will leave it up to the States. That’s better than some others on the subject, and it leaves the door open that he might sign an amendment if it was proposed to him, but it is weak in this sense: a constitutional amendment will be necessary because DOMA won’t last long in this political climate. A Constitutional amendment will secure DOMA into the Constitution and give it a much more respected character in the public eye. He therefore ought to support it.
His stance on immigration could be better, since the current path to citizenship (the only one he supports) can’t keep up with the legitimate influx of immigrants that are waiting to enter our country.
His tax plan as it stands now throws out the earned income tax credit, i.e. the one that gives families a tax break and therefore promotes the family (and traditional marriage, since it only applies to 1 man 1 woman marriages). That tax credit should be kept.
His idea on Social Security, while a great ideal to reach for (privatization), should not be implemented immediately because it will withdraw the revenue stream necessary to assist the elderly. Without it we will go far deeper into debt. Chile, the country he points to as a successful example of it, did it differently: they started cutting spending and applying extra funds to Social Security 30 years prior to adopting the private model, that way they’d be able to pay for the elderly once it was adopted. If we don’t do that, we won’t see the same result they did, because we won’t be able to pay for the remaining people in the current system, and it will break our economy.
For all these reasons I am glad that there are 3 months before we start voting in the primaries. We can make sure Cain knows these issues and is willing to adapt to them before we make him our nominee.
