Presidential wannabe Rick Santorum is another candidate that has about as much of a chance of becoming our next president as a live chicken does surviving Burundi.

But you would think these folks that are competing for the top spot in the Oval Office would be a bit more in touch with the majority of the nation’s populace.

Right?

Well, apparently not.

Turns out ol’ Ricky boy doesn’t believe it’s a good idea to leave decisions such as legalizing the use of marijuana for medical or recreational dedications, and defining same-sex marriage up to individual states.

In fact, Santorum attempted to validate his talking point during an interview with Iowa radio host Simon Conway by saying that allowing states to make decisions that should be left up to the federal government is like saying “the states have the right to redefine the chemical equation for water, it can be H3O instead of H2O.”

Here’s an excerpt from the aforementioned radio interview where Santorum expresses his views regarding states’ rights and how they shouldn’t be exercised:

There are people in this race that want the states to decide whether there should be same-sex marriage or polygamy or marijuana use. I don’t believe that. I don’t believe that the states have the right to redefine something that’s not capable of redefining.

Oy vey.

There you have it, America.

Another presidential candidate that doesn’t care about what you think.

If Rick somehow miraculously makes it through the primaries, and then becomes our next POTUS (shuttering at the very thought), he and his righthand man Jesus will decide what’s best for the entire country.

How disgraceful.
