In a desperate speech, Rick Perry is calling to "uproot, tear down and rebuild" the federal government:
Perry’s already up with a new web video highlighting another plank of his new platform: jailing members of Congress who cut stock deals based on insider information...In addition to his proposed changes to Congress, Perry would also institute 18-year term limits on the Supreme Court and end lifetime appointments of other federal judges...“Too many federal judges rule with impunity from the bench, and those who legislate from the bench should not be entitled to lifetime abuse of their judicial authority,” Perry said.
Here's video: I love the way he spits out the word "Congress," like it's squirming around inside his mouth:
So now he's Fightin' Rick Perry, tearing down Washington corruption from the inside and rewriting the Constitution as he sees fit. I wonder how long this Rick Perry will last?
