Letter from a reader:
Gov. Rick Perry reminds me of a slicker more polished
version of Richard Nixon.
Lie, lie, lie the ends justify the means: who really
cares? They are, after all, just promises for votes.
Gov. Perry's track record in Texas has all of the same
philosophies as Obama with the added ethics of George
W. Bush Jr. and the morals of Dick Cheney.
Slicker and faster will end our Nation even better,
and kill you and your family sooner.
The politicians keep on violating our Constitutional
Rights and passing legislation or signing executive
orders which will end our way of life and deprive us
of our Constitution, our rights and our country.
There is only one Statesman, who has said all along,
"Uphold The Constitution." Dr. Ron Paul.
Under Perry's leadership, by "executive order" he attempted to bypass the legislative process to force the HPV vaccine to be given to all 6th grade Texas females. The legislature did stand its ground.
According to the Huffington Post, the majority of jobs "created" were minimum wage jobs with no benefits. The unemployment rate in Houston in May without seasonally adjusted figures was 9%, nearly equal the national level.
It seems clear to me that the mainstream media and the spin from the left would like to see Perry get the nomination, for his record will demonstrate that people would be no better off with him than Obama's and insure a win for the incumbent President. That will surely spell disaster for the United States.
While finishing second in the recent Iowa straw poll behind Tea Party favorite and native daughter, Michelle Bachmann, Ron Paul is ignored by the press, who instead focus on Mitt Romney, a man who signed into law a health care plan in Massachusetts as abominable as Obama's national plan, in fact Obama may have copied his from Romney, according to the comments of former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.
It will take much campaigning by We the People to get Dr. Paul elected, but in the long run it will be worth the effort to restore Constitutional integrity in Washington, do the courageous and difficult task of reducing spending and limiting the ability to spend beyond a balanced budget. And with the addition of freshmen Senators and more Representatives in the House, he will have the majority to do the work necessary to restore our currency to the standard bearer of the world's economy.
When the government no longer serves the best interests of its people, it is both necessary and proper to replace that government with a new one. We have the mechanism to do so through the ballot box. We just have to stop voting for the same Democrats and Republicans that got us into this crisis and perpetuate it.
