The Next President of the United States?

“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state. That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”
- Texas Gov. Rick Perry

Odd that he didn't have anything to say about GWB's policies being too federalist during those 8 years. So, while I agree with him, he's simply a partisan hack who won't speak out against the republicans who do the same thing. Given that fact, he'd be no different in the Oval Office. It ain't just dems who flaunt federal powers at state and local rights.

I couldn't agree more. Politicians from both parties pay lip service to the constitution and the founders than turn around and crap all over it.

That's what this whole Tax Day Tea Party is about. Millions of citizens standing up and in one voice crying we are tired of taxation without representation!

We have representation. We just keep electing idiots who love the thought of being a "politician" rather than a protector of the peoples rights.

I plan on trying to attend the JoCo rally tomorrow. If able I will be easily identifiable wearing my Grumbling Old Fart T-shirt.
