Michael, a great quote, indeed.  Now if politicians could just be trusted to do more than just spurt out some good rhetoric from time to time – we’d be in business!

Whether it’s just political posturing or not, Perry is saying some really good things that are far beyond the normal “conservative opposition” you hear as primary season ramps up.

You can see the video of his full speech here

Just an “FYI” – at the Tenth Amendment Center we’ve verified, as of this writing, that 33 (yes, thirty-three) states have already introduced resolutions in support of the 10th Amendment.

State Sovereignty Resolutions

I’ll add one more quote, which I believe fits quite well here – and with James’ post about a peaceful revolution:

“The Revolution was effected before the War commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations. This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution.”
–John Adams

    The always interesting Stephen Kinsella has some solid analysis of Perry’s options.

    I’m weary of Perry because of that whole vaccine thing and he’s a former Democrat and looks like a political opportunist. Also, he’s close with Dubya. And the final nail in the coffin is that some Union guy I know said good things about him. It’s a bad sign if the Unions like you.

    Oh, I’m no fan of Rick Perry. He’s a statist and a political opportunist through and through.

    But, he seems to be pliable. I’d rather have a slimy politician who’s more interested in popularity than principle (when principle is bad)….because at least he can be driven to do something right if there’s enough popular support.

    Not sure if that makes sense…but there it is…
