“We will suspend our campaign effective today” Rick Santorum announced earlier today. Like Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, and Jon Huntsman, Jr. who made similar announcements regarding their candidacy previously, it does appear that with this announcement Rick Santorum will no longer be a viable 2012 Presidential Candidate.


 This photo, described as “Rick Santorum speaking at CPAC in Washington D.C. on February 10, 2011”, can reportedly be used if attribute the author of the photograph as Gage Skidmore (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rick_Santorum_by_Gage_Skidmore.jpgRick Santorum; obtained on 11-3-11).


The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 and The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 Scoring Version 1.0 on 2012 Presidential Candidates can potentially provide a method to counteract and inoculate the voter against what biased monetary (political) contributors can buy (e.g., negative advertising tactics). As such, they each represent immediate solutions to address the issue of money corrupting the voting behavior process. The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 and The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 Scoring Version 1.0 on 2012 Presidential Candidates also provide a method to have the voter make their own well thought out decision(s) based upon their own research. 

The author plans to develop The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 to enhance its use and usefulness as a method to obtain good election outcomes. Additional 2012 United States Presidential candidates may also be included. To help enhance the use and usefulness of The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011, a “Survey of The Voter Scorecard ©  1988, 2011 Scoring Version 1.0 On Eight 2012 US Presidential Candidates” consisting of five questions was also presented for all readers to complete and can also be accessed from a link in the sidebar as well as below. A summary of the results will be sent to the e-mail address you provide at the end of the survey free of charge. It is noteworthy that a candidate could withdraw as a Presidential Candidate as H. Ross Perot did back in 1992 and then reenter as a third party Presidential Candidate.




The 2012 United States Presidential Candidates themselves or their representatives are each invited to comment, make  recommendations, and/or add to the information in The Hygiology Post. Also, all of the 2012 United States Presidential Candidates are invited to be interviewed (for almost any purpose and in basically any format they choose to be interviewed) by and write an article for publication in The Hygiology Post.

The Hygiology Post welcomes feedback from readers as to whether the articles (individually and/or collectively) help fulfill its vision and mission.
