Here We Go!

       Yesterday, the State of Iowa held the 2011 straw poll for the Republican 2012 candidates for President. While Michele Bachmann (one of my favorites for the job), won the poll, Texas Governor Rick Perry (another of my favorites), who announced his candidancy Saturday, but was not an active participant in the straw poll finished sixth, as a "write-in candidate", ahead of supposed front runner Mitt Romney".
        Hold on! Wait! Look to the west. It's coming. See all those angry clouds, hail, lightning, tornadoes, and flooding rains gathering. That's the Lame Stream Media's Rick Rerry smear machine on it's way. They are going to do and say anything to demonize him. Why, I wouldn't be surprised if they come out with a story saying he has toxic belly button lint. Just wait and see how he is going to be smeared.
         By the way, Perry has been Governor of Texas since 2000 and won reelection in 2002, 2006, and 2010, so you have to assume he's doing something right. Texas has no Corporate or personal income taxes,  and has no Inheritence tax. Since the recession technically ended in June of 2009, the State of Texas alone has created 45% of the new jobs created in the United States. Businesses and population are pouring into Texas, which explains why the State has picked up 4 new Congressional seats since the last Census.
        Gee, do you think Uncle Barack might learn something from what Perry is doing in Texas. Nah, because that would go entirely against his deliberate plan to turn the United States into a welfare based Socialist country with the Federal Government in charge of as much of our lives as possible and it's subsequent destruction of the private business sectror. He wants central planning from Washington and a dictatorship, if he can figure out to accomplish it.
        In Governor Perry's announcement speech he said :

"I will work every day to make Washington, D.C. as inconsequential in your lives as I can, and free our families, small businesses and states from a burdensome and costly federal government so they can create, innovate and succeed. With the help and courage of the American people, we will get our country working again."

        That is a very Reaganesque statement that could easily have come right out of the 1980 campaign, when President Carter had the country in a very similar economic mess, and knowing that Governor Perry is a huge State's rights advocate, and a firm believer in the Tenth Amendment, he has my vote if he gets the nomination.
