In ths video, Texas Governor Rick Perry is introduced by Andrew Breitbart, of BigGovernment.com at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans. He calls Breitbart a “stud.” Love that. Sure Andrew did as well. Here are snippets of this rousing video that lays out simple principles for governing, and says we must find the people with the courage to implement those principles of free market and capitalism – and those leaders will say: I’m going to Washington, D.C. to make it as inconsequential in your life as possible.
He speaks to the three things Republicans need to assure for this country: 1) have a strong military, 2) secure our borders and 3) deliver the mail on time. Get those three right and leave everything else alone.
The Tenth Amendment says The Federal Government is an agent for the states, and not the other way around.
The principles of governing:
1) Do not spend all the money
2) Have a tax and regulatory policy that are fair and predictable
3) Have a legal system that does not allow for over-suing
4) Have an accountable public school system, giving the community a skilled work force
“Then, get out of the way, Government! Let the private sector do what the private sector does best: create jobs, create wealth.”
