Rick Santorum versus the right to the pursuit of happiness:

Newsflash, Mr. Theocracy!

Life does not consist of a burdensome slew of unpleasant responsibilities to other people, whereupon each person is required to immolate himself for the sake of the common good.

To pursue one’s own happiness does not mean snatching solitary moments of pleasure, but seeking deeply meaningful values and joys over the course of a whole lifetime. That requires the scrupulous use of reason and dedication to virtue.

Every person has just one life to live, and that life is his own. He ought to make he most of it, pursuing the values that he holds dear — not waste it away in submission to the demands of others.

The right to the pursuit of happiness is a fundamental right, and the Founders deserve every praise for recognizing it as such.

Whereas you… you deserve to be tarred and feathered and run out of town.

Yet, you are “surging from behind” in Iowa.

GOP, I hate you. And yes, I would vote for Obama over Rick Santorum.
