Not Smaller

I keep hearing Rick Perry is a small government kind of fellow, but I don’t see it.  Here’s yet another example of a big government Republican – someone we should fear and oppose just as strongly as a big government Democrat.

He said the leaders of Mexico and the U.S. should meet after next year’s elections to address the deadly drug trade in that country.

“It may require our military in Mexico working in concert with them to kill these drug cartels and to keep them off of our border,” Perry said.

Campaign press secretary Robert Black said Perry wanted to cooperate with the Mexican government and wasn’t ruling anything out.

“He’s going to work with the Mexican government to do what’s necessary,” Black said.

Using troops for law enforcement is scary.. scarier when it’s to enforce laws that restrict personal choice.
