Texas Governor Rick Perry has been a strong defender of states’ rights. The only exception to this rule seems to be when not supporting what will get him elected.
Texas Governors seem to have a way of ending up President. We know all too well the story of our former Governor/President George W. Bush. After his term in office one would think the people would need a break before electing another Governor from Texas, but perhaps not. The current Texas Governor, Rick Perry, is positioning himself for a serious run for the White House. Perry has made a name for himself as a leading advocate of states’ rights. His recent book Fed Up is entirely about the Federal Government overstepping its role in all areas. With his history of supporting a state’s right to choose, his support of medical marijuana makes sense.
