Washington, D.C. – Today, former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania and a former Presidential candidate Rick Santorum addressed an enthusiastic crowd of conservative activists at CPAC 2014 – a celebration of 50 years of the ACU and America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists.

Santorum offered the following words, “I’m here to see America win…We are the party who has the polices that will work best. We are the party that will create growth and opportunity.

He declared, “The first economy is the home. When the home breaks down the economy breaks down!”

Santorum continued, “I think we need to talk a lesson from someone who is, maybe, the most popular person in the world right now, Pope Francis…he’s going out there what the Christian faith is against, but what we’re for for. He’ll go out there and talk about the good news to a hurting world…What we need to do is talk about the good ideas we have.”

He ended, “Let’s talk about how we can build a great America again.”  

The Honorable Rick Santorum is a former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania and a former Presidential candidate. He is the co-founder of Patriot Voices, a grassroots and online community of Americans from across the country committed to promoting faith, family, freedom and opportunity. He is also CEO of EchoLight Studios, which produces and distributes high-quality movies for families of faith. In 2012, Rick was a candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, where he won 11 states and nearly 4 million votes during the primary process. Prior to running for President, Rick served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1991 to 1995, and in the U.S. Senate from 1995 to 2007. An accomplished author, Rick penned the 2005 New York Times best seller It Takes a Family and American Patriots: Answering the Call to Freedom (2012).

ACU’s Schlapp on Obama’s Cuba Policy Action

“While I am relieved to hear about the release of Alan Gross, President Obama’s actions today fail to stand up for true democratic reforms in Cuba. Today President Obama insulted and betrayed the Cuban freedom fighters who fled Cuba with just the shirt on their backs. My father-in-law, now in the winter of a heroic man’s life, deserves the peace of mind knowing that America will always stand for human rights and human dignity.”

ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp on Hagel Resignation

“President Obama apparently learned two things from the recent elections: circumvent Congress and blame Republicans,” said Schlapp. “Hagel’s firing comes directly after the irresponsible executive order on immigration last week.”

ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp’s Statement on Executive Amnesty

President Obama’s Executive Order is like a royal decree giving legal status to millions of people who came here and reside here illegally. The president is showing utter contempt for the American voter, the Constitution, the separation of powers and all those who follow the law.

Mark Levin, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina to Speak at CPAC 2015

“We are honored to announce that conservative talk radio powerhouse Mark Levin, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and ACU Foundation Chairman Carly Fiorina will deliver remarks at CPAC 2015,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “These three conservative leaders reflect our desire to ensure that CPAC 2015 represents conservative policies that highlight the importance of free markets, national security, and traditional cultural standards.”

Shift on Cuba a bad political move by Obama?

Schlapp-on-Huckabee

Over the weekend, American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Matt Schlapp and his wife Mercy, who was a spokesperson for President George W. Bush, appeared on FOX News’ Huckabee, where they spoke about their family’s history dealing with the Castro brothers in Cuba.   Their story serves as a reminder to all of us that the freedoms we enjoy are often the result of individuals who have suffered, fighting for those freedoms in the first place.

On The Road to CPAC with Hillsdale YAF!

Some of our favorite student activists at Hillsdale College’s Young Americans for Freedom are clearly ready for the holidays. But they aren’t asking Santa for gifts. They’re asking President Reagan to make their CPAC dreams come true! Watch their awesome submission for The Road to CPAC here:

Did you send your letter to Santa yet?

Santa may not get your letter thanks to the US Postal Service

Well, the U.S. Postal Service might not be able to deliver it! Instead of using valuable taxpayer dollars to fix the problems with mail delivery, they’re busy spending it on costly projects with other companies, like Amazon.

Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union (ACU) is the oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization in the nation. For more than forty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense.
