Rick Perry surprised a lot of attendees with his dynamic speech. For me, he encapsulated everything we feel today with this recommendation to any candidate running: “Tell the people I am going to Washington, D.C., to make it as inconsequential in your life as possible.” Amen!
He went on to say the role of government is to protect, not provide. We’re in a debate between democracy and socialism. Perry’s platform boils down to 3 things: a strong military, secure our borders and deliver the mail on time.
“Until you get those three right, how about leaving the rest alone?” he said.
