Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is suspicious about President Barack Obama’s goal for more Americans to go to college, The Hill
reports. What Obama really seeks is to turn youngsters into liberals, the former Pennsylvania senator says.
"It's no wonder President Obama wants every kid to go to go college," Santorum said Wednesday in Florida, according to CBS News. "The indoctrination that occurs in American universities is one of the keys to the left holding and maintaining power in America.”
The proof that it’s liberal indoctrination? “If it was the other way around, the ACLU would be out there making sure there wasn't one penny of government dollars going to colleges and universities, right?"
In his State of the Union address Tuesday, the president said college and universities must find ways to cut the prices they charge or risk government funding cuts. "Higher education can't be a luxury. It is an economic imperative that every family in America should be able to afford," Obama said.
Santorum said that if colleges and universities taught Judeo-Christian principles, "they would be stripped of every dollar."
"If they teach radical secular ideology, they get all the government support that they can possibly give them. You know 62 percent of children who enter college with a faith conviction leave without it."
