Santorum: 'We Have The Truth And We Give Up'

Rick Santorum won Students for Life’s 2013 William Wilberforce Award, and spent part of his speech lamenting the gains made by the left in the US. The likely presidential candidate said progressives focus on politics “in everything they do and in every aspect of their life…. They live it, they are passionate, they are willing to do and say uncomfortable things in mixed company, they are willing to make the sacrifice with their business because they care enough.”

He even likened liberals to the Continental Army of the American Revolution: “We won the American Revolution against those British not because we were the most powerful, not because we had the most arms, not because we had the truth, we won because we wanted it more, we were willing to sacrifice everything for it and we were not going to give up, we were not going to stop. That’s how the left has done to America what you’ve seen in your lifetime because they simply won’t give up.”

“We have the truth and we give up, we have righteousness and we give up because it’s unpopular,” Santorum said.
