Rick Perry wants to change the Constitution. The Governor of Texas announced his candidacy for president a few weeks ago, going up against Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, and many others.
When Perry was first introduced as a candidate, the media painted a pretty picture of a God-Loving, charismatic man who wanted to do something good for our great country. But once again, it is too good to be true.
Rick Perry wants to change the Constitution. I think it takes a lot of guts to even suggest something that drastic. And maybe it should be looked at, but is it really a smart way to start a campaign for the presidency of the United States?
If we look at the article that this statement appears in, we can see that some of the changes are drastic. According to Chris Moody, Perry not only wants to abolish taxes and limit terms and power to judges, he also wants to make abortion and gay marriage illegal in all 50 states.
A bit extreme?
Many people think so. Comments from this article range from agreeing with him to calling his an idiot and a hypocrite. One even person pointed out that those things he is now against he once voted on to keep.
Yes, I admit that when he first came into the spotlight there was hope that maybe this man could do wonders for our country, but I have since changed my mind. I don’t want someone as my president who is so extreme and closed-minded that he wouldn’t listen to what the people want. He is doing what so many other candidates are doing; only thinking of himself and how he thinks the country should be run. Has anyone even asked us, the people of the United States?
I think we really need to look at the backgrounds of all the candidates and see who is really for us, the people. A good website for this is at http://2012.presidential-candidates.org/.
Let’s be intelligent when we pick our next president. The future of our country depends on it.
