Ouch: Rick Santorum’s Nephew Endorses Ron Paul

The young people of today love them some Ron Paul. He’s like the Kelly Clarkson of GOP candidates. Hell, he’s so much like Kelly Clarkson, she endorsed him. However, until now, many people have attempted to just brush off this youth support as nothing but a bunch of stoners. An endorsement he received today might sting a little more though. It comes from the 19 year old nephew of Rick Santorum.

The nephew, John Garver, wrote a column over at the Daily Caller in which he says Americans should only elect his uncle if they “want another big-government politician who supports the status quo to run our country.” Ooh, that hurts.

He continues:

“It is because of this inability of status quo politicians to recognize the importance of our individual liberties that I have been drawn to Ron Paul. Unlike my uncle, he does not believe that the American people are incapable of forming decisions. He believes that an individual is more powerful than any group (a notion our founding fathers also believed in).

Ron Paul seems to be the only candidate trying to win the election for a reason other than simply winning the election.”

Popular Tumblrer Stacy Lambe linked to the column saying that he knows Garver’s family and that, in the extended Santorum clan, they are the “black sheep.”

If they weren’t before, they certainly are now.
