Texas Governor Rick Perry gave a passionate speech to CPAC attendees this morning.
“A little rebellion is a good thing,” he boldly stated. “It’s time for a little rebellion on the battlefront of ideas.”
Perry said that the future of America lies in the states, which he called “laboratories of innovation.”
He used several examples to show that red states produce prosperity more effectively than blue states ridden with Bloomberg-like nanny state policies. Texas, Perry’s home state, has presided over the nation’s largest economic boom in a generation while liberal utopias like California and New York continue to decline economically.
Although Perry stressed that overall, America is struggling financially, he asserted that it doesn’t have to be that way.
“We don’t need to accept recent history, we just need to change the presidency,” he said.
Ending on a positive note, the Texas governor said, “The future of America lies in you… and you represent the new hope that America can be great again.”
