The following video is Texas Governor Rick Perry’s (R) speech at CPAC 2013 in Washington, D.C. Note that there is an introduction before Perry comes to the podium and a little celebration of Texas. If I find the transcript, I’ll post it here.
I come from what a lot of people might seem to think is a foreign country: We have a balanced budget. We have a surplus. We are creating more jobs than any other state in the Union, and we’re doing this with a part-time legislature that meets for only 140 days every other year. Our legislators come in. They pass laws and then they go home and live under the laws they just passed.
