This is not an endorsement, but there is a lot of talk on the internet and blogs about a Rick Perry draft, so a draft committee by a California Assemblyman is important news…MB
Draft Rick Perry for President
By California State Assemblyman Dan Logue
The Proverb says “Where there is no vision, the people perish…” Never before has this been more true than today. Our great nation deserves and the world needs America to be strong and stable. We must be a people who are confident that we are secure at home and respected abroad. The power to ensure the security of our homeland and the strength of our military to secure our strategic national interests is contingent upon our maintaining a robust and growing national economy.
There is no security without economic security. There can be no military power without economic power and there is little question that the challenges that confront our nation are only escalating. The out of control growth of government spending, entitlements, unfunded pension liabilities and historic national debt have compromised our nation’s future and have eroded our stature and influence in the world.
That is why I am declaring the formation of the Committee to Draft Texas Governor Rick Perry for President of the United States. As a member of the California State Assembly I recently led a bipartisan delegation of lawmakers visited Austin a few weeks ago to learn why Texas was creating jobs while the Golden State was struggling.
We found that from January 2008 to December 2010, Texas added more than 165,000 jobs while during the same time period, California lost 1.2 million jobs. For me and my colleagues, we saw those numbers as an indication that, under the leadership of Rick Perry, Texas was doing something very right.
