The French Revolution according to Rick Santorum (Republican candidate for President of the USA)

There have been some very interesting interpretations of the French Revolution recently here in the USA.
According to ABC News (February 9, 2012), Rick Santorum is afraid that the French Revolution is going to descend on us (or perhaps Texas?), unless he gets elected as the next president of the USA.
The ABC News reports:
He told the audience at the raucous rally that Obama is restricting religious freedoms in this country, and even that a situation like the French Revolution could happen in America. As he spoke supporters yelled, “We want Rick!” and “We want you!” throughout the speech.
“They are taking faith and crushing it. Why? Why? When you marginalize faith in America, when you remove the pillar of God given rights then what’s left?” Santorum asked and an audience member offered, “Communism!”
“The French Revolution,” Santorum answered. “What’s left is a government that gives you rights. What’s left are no unalienable rights. What’s left is a government that will tell you who you are, what you’ll do and when you’ll do it. What’s left in France became the guillotine. Ladies and gentlemen, we are a long way from that, but if we do follow the path of President Obama and his overt hostility to faith in America, then we are headed down that road.”

Stand by for more of these creative forays into revolutionary history.
