The Republican GOP

With President Obama being the Democratic Presidential nominee for 2012, I decided to wait until after the Super Tuesday elections to see who would become the Frontrunner for the Republican GOP.  Well, Super Tuesday has come and gone and there still is not one candidate that has surpassed the others in a “hands down” type of fashion.  So, I’ve decided to finally do my own research to determine where the top two candidates stand on specific issues.  I am in no way endorsing one candidate over the other (Although I do like Mr. Santorum’s first name).

The information listed below is my feeble attempt to wade through all of the political mumbo-jumbo and shed some light on issues that seem to be important in my circle of friends and colleagues.

Here are my novice findings:
