Santorum at Detroit Economic Club
by

Rick Santorum’s speech the other day at the Detroit Economic Club is really good stuff. It might lack pizzazz, but it is heartfelt, sincere, delivered without a prepared text yet still fluent, and it is almost entirely on target on policy and philosophically deeply rooted in Burkean conservatism. One of the better parts comes near the end of the speech (near the midpoint of the entire video, which includes Q&A), when he talks about the role of “mediating institutions” between the individual and the government. Families, churches, schools, community hospitals, local charities: These not only provide wonderful services, but they also provide a buffer between us and government, without which freedom is endangered. The speech is well worth watching.
