Rick Perry, medium and hypocrite

by J.A. Myerson

Here’s Rick Perry, whose direct line to the intentions and thoughts of the founding fathers has more than a slight ring of prophet delusion to it, discussing “general welfare:”

I don’t think our founding fathers when they were putting the term “general welfare” in there were thinking about a federally operated program of pensions nor a federally operated program of health care. What they clearly said was that those were issues that the states need to address. Not the federal government. I stand very clear on that.

Alright, Gov. Perry, let’s split that proposition. Will you agree to add a plank to your platform arguing that the 2nd Amendment only protects the right to bear muskets? Or do you think the founding fathers had envisioned modern weaponry?
