Rick Perry’s CPAC Speech Urges RebellionBy: Val Powell - March 10, 2014
In his speech, the Governor praised his fellow Republicans, Governors Rick Scott of Florida, Scott Walker of Wisconsin, and Nikki Haley of South Carolina.
He opened his speech by quoting Thomas Jefferson who once said, “A little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing.” He then went on and enumerated the things that the government should focus on, such as providing a forceful foreign policy, and defending the country. He continued to say, “And what the heck, deliver the mail, preferably on time and on Saturdays,” which roused the crowed into a frenzy.
Perry also reiterated his rally against blue states, which is what he has been doing in his jobs tour in other states. The Governor proposed a simple solution to all the problems stating, “It’s time for a little rebellion on the battlefield of ideas.”
Others say that Perry’s speech is a showing of what can be expected in his presidential bid in 2016. In his speech, he also told his supporters that they don’t have to accept recent history and the presidency just needs to be changed, an obvious stab against President Obama.
At the peak of his speech, the Governor’s voice soared as he said that the future of the nation lies in the hands of his fellow conservatives. He ended his speech by saying that his supporters are the ones who represent the renewed hope that the country can be great once again.
Perry has stated the big contrast between the blue-state and the red-state governors and the crowds agreed, showing their support for the governor with loud applause that got louder as the speech ended.
