A Vote for Perry Insures the Status Quo...

If the Iowa Caucus turns out to be the predictor of who the republican nominee will be in 2012 little of significance will change. Republicans will essentially offer up a "red" statist who loves power, big brother government, and offering yet a bigger teat to suckle on.

There is essentially no difference between a democratic teat and a republican teat. Rather it is six of one and a half dozen of the other.

Confirming a surge seen in polling across the nation, Texas Governor Rick Perry has moved into first place among Republican voters in Iowa, host state to the first-in-the-nation caucus early next year.

A Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of those likely to participate in the Iowa GOP Caucus shows that Perry is the first choice for 29%. Essentially tied for second are Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann at 18% and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at 17%. Texas Congressman Ron Paul picks up 14% of the vote, and nobody else currently reaches the five percent (5%) mark.

A month ago, before Perry officially entered the race, Bachmann and Romney were essentially tied for the lead with Perry in fourth place.

The new Iowa results are consistent with national polling which also shows Perry on top. Perry leads President Obama by three in an early look at a possible general election matchup. Other top Republican contenders are close. The president trails a generic Republican by eight. {Read More}

Emblematic of the largest teat ever presented to the American people. And to think they elected him. Go figure...

Update 2X:

The antidote to Perry and Obama...

Specifically: here, here, here, and here


  1. Well put. Though the teats the GOP provide are far more expensive and far less useful.


  2. The Democrats teats are far more costly and detrimental to both the economy and the peoples' health.

    Who do you think represents the status quo more, Romney or Perry? Perry does seem like he was anointed or something like that right from the start.

  3. I am a jaded voter, so I realize all candidates are flawed.

    Would Rick Perry be materially better for this country than Obama? The answer is a resounding yes.

    I fear that the crony crapitalists, like the poor, will always be with us.

  4. There's nothing "wrong" with American politicians, they've always been crooked. The problem is with American voters.
