However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.
Farewell Address, 1797
Perry Poop is a love letter from Texas independents to the American people, especially the 40% or so who call themselves independents and who will likely decide this presidential election.
We are just ordinary Texans, but we know Governor Rick Perry in a real special kind of way, having done battle with him for years. For us, he is the “cunning, ambitious and unprincipled” man about whom the father of our country so eloquently warned.
Make no mistake about the humor in this site. For those of us who are attempting to live, work and love here in Texas, Rick Perry’s abuse of power is no joke.
For when he gets home from his travels around the globe to relax in the $9,000 per month private mansion that we Texans pay for, Rick Perry is the one who has been getting the big laugh. That is, until now.
