Can I Trust You With My Heart...and my 401K?
Just when my heart was about to heal and I was ready to move on with my life, a sadder, wiser man, a suitor comes a’ calling. I want to, I really, really want to believe you’re the man for me, Rick Perry. But I’ve just been hurt so many times before. Sure, you say all the things that I like to hear:
To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan, I realized that the United States of America really is the last great hope of mankind. What I saw was systems of government that elevated rulers at the expense of the people. Socialist systems cloaked maybe in good intentions but were delivering misery and stagnation. And I learned that not everyone values life like we do in America, or the rights that are endowed to every human being by a loving God.
Oh my! Lincoln, Reagan, God, capitalism and country all rolled up into one. There’s no denying that you have a way with words. But, words are just words and may ex said a lot of the same words before he starting spouting dribble about “compassionate conservatism” and running up the national debt like the bill would never come due. Those kinds of wounds heal oh so slowly!
