    FYI just for anyone that "likes" the bumper sticker --not trying to get political but make sure you know it is promoting his book which is based on the following... Guess I don't wawnt one afer all :(
    "Among politicians of national stature today, there is perhaps none more respected as a principled conservative than Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA). In It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good, his first book, Santorum articulates the humane vision that he believes must inform public policy if it is to be effective and just. An appreciation for the civic bonds that unite a community lies at the heart of genuine conservatism. Moreover, Senator Santorum demonstrates how such an approach to political, social, and economic problems offers the most promise for those on the margin of life: the poor, the vulnerable, and minorities who have often been excluded from opportunity in America.

    Santorum argues that conservative statesmanship is animated by a sense of stewardship for an inheritance. But what do we inherit as Americans? And how can we be good stewards of that inheritance? Building on Robert Putnam's discussion of "social capital," the habits of association and trust that are the preconditions of any decent society, Santorum assesses how well, in the past generation, Americans have cared for the "fabric" of society. He explores in detail various dimensions of social and cultural connection that are the foundation of the common good. And he presents innovative policy proposals for the renewal of American society at all levels."

    Throughout his book, Santorum emphasizes the central role of the family—in contradistinction to the metaphorical "village" of the federal government, as promoted by Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton—in achieving the common good. With a sustained argument touching on first principles throughout, this ambitious and original book is a major contribution to contemporary political debate. It Takes a Family will further establish Senator Santorum as the leader of reform-minded civic conservatives in America

    Not to get "political" but it sure is pretty hypocritical to infer there is something wrong with someone who might "like" this book, bumper sticker and message and then CYA by saying you aren't trying to be political. Maybe I read into it too much, but your comment sure seems accusatory

    I'm sorry you feel that way,the need to read so much into it. I in no way said there was something WRONG with someone who likes this.I was simply letting people know what exactly the bumper sticker stood for and/or was about.If you take the time to read it before jumping on your bandwagon it would say "Guess I don't want one afer all ".So if you are of the mindset that because I don't want one it means noone else should then I apologize that you read it in a different context in your mind. Thanks!!
