In the Netherlands, people wear different bracelets if they are elderly. And the bracelet is: ‘Do not euthanize me.’ Because they have voluntary euthanasia in the Netherlands but half of the people who are euthanized — ten percent of all deaths in the Netherlands — half of those people are enthanized involuntarily at hospitals because they are older and sick. And so elderly people in the Netherlands don’t go to the hospital. They go to another country, because they are afraid, because of budget purposes, they will not come out of that hospital if they go in there with sickness.

These claims are hilariously ridicilous. I doubt that many pitmonkeys would vote for this phony, but I thought I'd share it anyway. Don't make this guy your prez.

Don't worry, he won't be.


I hope.

Seriously, though, it'll be either Obama or Romney realistically. Santorum is an idiotic cunt who somehow got himself a Senate seat for 12 years.

I would like to be able to promise you that my country won't elect this guy... but we did 'elect' Bush a second time, so I'm afraid I can't do that. As Katana said, it will probably be Obama or Romney.

Nah, I support Santorum because Mustaine supports him

I always tried to ignore the political ideas of Mustaine and to just focus on his music but I can't help but hate the guy ever since he claimed to be against gay marriage.

Rick Santorum is the best possible outcome for the Democrats - he's not going to get any independent or democrat support, and he's going to turn more moderate conservatives away.

I'd rather get somebody that accomplishes good things than somebody who simply fails to do bad things, but I guess it's something....

Rick Santorum is a knob, maybe he would like to check his facts before he talks shit.

Those hopes kind of died when we got down to our current four Republican candidates.

Just like Perry...

Just Like Gingrich...

Romney is the (eventual) nominee, and he's probably the best of the crowd.

I would have preferred Huntsman. but t'was not to be.

I'm hoping Santorum will be the nominee actually, that way Obama will surely win.

Either that you're all going back to the dark ages and everyone who isn't white, overly religious christian, straight, male and rich will move out of the country. Either way really.

Trust me, Huntsman is WAY better than any other Republican and Obama (And I'm not saying that because he's a Utahn too)

Well we've all known this for years, quite astute observations there Mr Santorum.

That's no laughing matter. I know it brings up the chances of Obama winning, but from my experience with American politics, there is every chance that just a little too much of the public might decide to go full retard and vote this nut in.

To be honest, I think Tzeentch, changer of ways would make for a more stable administration if he was elected president.

Nah, regardless of who is elected not much will REALLY change. Everybody runs around screaming how evil it will be if X or Y gets elected, but it's pretty much BS...

Don't take to much of what the current crop of candidates says too seriously, as they have no choice but to flock to the right in a effort to garner the nomination. Once that's locked up, every single Republican candidate ever has drifted to the center, as has every Democratic candidate, they just drift from the other side...

Yeah,one thing i don't get is how someone could be such a dumb**** that they don't realize that Santorum is a homophobe,and they blindly support the person.

I wouldn't really call it easy.. Most people who want to be euthanised are having a lot of trouble to get everything arranged, even those who have clearly stated their wish multiple times. There's a lot of room for improvement in my opinion, but I guess that progress will come gradually together with growing acceptance of euthanasia.

I was being sarcastic
To be honest I don't think most dutch people are really offended by it. Even our most right-wing party (except hardcore SGP people) isn't as bad as the Republicans in America.

Man, if we can just get enough people to "waste" their vote on a third party, we may become a force to be reckoned with.
