Since Rick Perry has described Social Security as a Ponzi Scheme and has decided to Secede from the United States, we need to allow him to do so and take all of his billionaire buddies with him. I think it is now time for the United States to provide Governor Perry with a little slice of Texas for his own country. The part I am referring to is in Andrews County in west Texas where for $100,OOO Rick Perry signed the legislation to allow billionaire Harold Simmons to set up a radioactive waste dumping site. Now that Rick The Great has decided to run for President of the United States, Harold Simmons has apparently donated $1.2 million to Rick(The Great)Perry to help his presidential bid. Since Perry does not want any government regulations, the NATION OF PERRY-SIMMONS would not need a constition, an army, a police force, hospitals, trains, airplanes, or any kind of motorized vehicles. They would not need hospitals because billionaires and on-the-take-politicians are too unscrupulous to die from disease. No self respecting microbe, germ or virus would go near them for fear that they would mutate into some kind or organism that would alter their way of life.
There is one problem with this proposal. It appears that Perry and Simmons have violated the laws of the United States with respect to the setting up of the nuclear waste site. I doubt if the Federal Government will allow the State of Texas to dump nuclear waste because any nation or any corporation could dump their waste on United States soil, poison the soil, the water supply, and the citizens of the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
There is another problem associated with Rick Perry and his candidacy for President of the United States. Mr. Perry likes executive orders or signings whereby he can bypass the congressional and judicial system or our government and become a unitary executive or the supreme ruler of our nation without any checks and balances. An example of this tactic used by the Texas Governor is the appointment of persons to boards which govern the various functions of the State of Texas. For example, Perry appointed a person to the board governing teacher pensions so that funds from these pensions could be monitored and used at his discretion. In exchange for such a favor one such candidate paid the governor over $100,000. There are hundreds of such organizations in Texas such as the board that governs drugs. An appointment to the drug board provided Perry with another large amount of money and provided drug companies with many favors in return such as freedom from law suites in case the drug killed the patients who had been administered a particular drug. In fact in his years as Governor, Perry has become a very wealthy multimillionaire . If Perry were to be elected as President of the United States we would expect the same tactics to be instituted at the national level because Perry does not believe in governmental regulations nor does he believe that receiving money for appointments or for any other reason constitutes an illegal act. In this instance and many others, he is a reflection of the ethical values of the Republican Party and of individual Republicans who are willing to sell their souls for individual gain at the expense of the national interests.
