The 'Earth First!' Candidate Vs. the 'Birth First!' Candidate

(A Satire, with apologies to Jonathan Swift)
Thank Heaven. Really. I hope we all understand by now that it can only be the Almighty, acting through his modern-day Messenger on earth, Rick "Sanctus" Santorum, who has rescued us from what was becoming a far-too-complex and esoteric campaign debate about Big Government versus Small Government and shifted the focus back to where it belongs. Back to people. To a choice between the people candidate and the anti-people candidate. Santorum versus Obama. Let no one claim any longer that they can't  understand the stakes of this presidential campaign.
