Following is an article by Governor Rick Perry of Texas, who is currently a candidate running for President of the United States. In the article he makes some points that not only make a lot of sense but should be read and understood by all Americans who plan to vote in November. While I am not necessarily endorsing Governor Perry at this time, I would certainly vote for him if he becomes the Republican nominee.
The current field of Republican candidates has several fine candidates that would make a fine President and I am still analyzing each of their attributes. As such have not decided on one whom I would like to be the nominee. I only know that I definitely do not want Mitt Romney. We don’t need a middle of the road RINO who is willing to kiss liberals butts to get legislation that will only compromise our values, passed through Congress.
Rick Perry’s plan is proposing to establish a “part time” congress to bring it back in line with the fundamental tenets of our founding fathers who believed that elected congressmen and senators should come out of the working class and return there after their term in Congress. The full time professional legislators we now have become entrenched in the trappings of power and money that influences voting and their mindset.
Read now an alternative idea proposed by a fine American; Governor Rick Perry:
Time To Get Serious About Insider Trading in Washington
Congress is finally feeling the pressure over insider trading, the practice of trading financial securities based on non-public information available to a select few in government.
After a series of investigative reports, including several here at Big Government, the American people are beginning to realize that what is wrong with this country can be diagrammed on a map, with a straight line connecting Wall Street and Washington, D.C.
Now exposed to the light of day, the political establishment is determined to show the American people it is “doing something” to clean up its act.
This week, the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing on the matter, taking what many observers saw as great pains to minimize perceptions of a systemic and bipartisan problem. But I remain skeptical, as do many Americans, that Congress will actually pass a bill with teeth that requires them to live by the same rules as the rest of us.
The fact is, things will never change as long as the same Washington insiders remain in control. Washington is broken and needs a complete overhaul, but establishment politicians only want to tinker at the margins. This is why we can’t ask a Washington insider to fix Washington, because it takes an outsider to overhaul a corrupt culture.
