I suppose the thing that scares me the most is the focus on social issues as opposed to the fiscal issues that most modern day conservative republicans tout as their party platform. We can disagree on fiscal policy, we can have opposing views on how taxes should be collected and disbursed and in the end, most of us wouldn't be able to tell a real difference in the outcome...most of us middle class folks that is. But, when suddenly the focus is on moral issues and one party is adamant that their view is the only acceptable view, suddenly it becomes not about compromise but about forcing your religious or moral views and standards on others. Lets debate fiscal policy, international policy, health care, etc, but for Christs' sake, lets not try to condemn other people for who they are. I am terrified that this Santorum guy might get more traction...if not now, then in the next cycle.
