Unlike politicians, a cowboy still makes a deal with a handshake and his word is his bond.
.....A cowboy lives by a set of unwritten principles hard wired into his DNA. It is instinctive because it is the example set by those that surround him.
Cowboys don't whine and stomp their feet like spoiled children and politicians often do when things don't go their way. They know that whining and wringing your hands don't get the job done.
In my interaction with cowboy and ranching community up in Idaho, I have learned it is very close knit and neighbors and families work together. If a neighbor gets hurt and cant work, everyone pitches in to help.
.....They lend a hand when needed, mind each others kids as if they were their own, and share hardships and special occasions equally.
Those values still exist in thousands of communities all across this country.
I dont know much about Rick Perry, but from what I have learned so far that sounds a lot like his early life in Paint Creek, Texas. He comes from the same background and has the same values as....friends up in Blackfoot, Idaho.
Like most voters I want to learn more about him before I decide if he is the right man for the job.
But from George Bush the Elder to Bill Clinton to George Bush the Younger to Barack Obama, the last four presidents were all Ivy League educated and certified members of the establishment that has gotten America into the bipartisan mess we find ourselves.
Maybe its time for a graduate of a land grant university like Texas A&M and a real son of the soil to get us out of this mess.
And someone who knows what it means to be a real cowboy.

Rick Perry served in the U.S. Air Force after graduating from Texas A&M
Elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1984, Rick Perry was known as one of the "Pit Bulls,"
members who sat in the lower pit of the House Appropriations Committee and bitterly fought spending increases.
Governor of Texas (re-elected twice -- serving 3rd term)

Cross a cowboy - he shoots you. Works for me. LOL
I like Perry’s cowboy values. It is his hob-nobbing with Muslims and Gore which is a concern.
But has he done a reality show?
Still, she intends to get out on the campaign trail and play a more visible part.
"Not that I'm a vote-changer or a vote-getter or anything like that," she said. "But I'll do whatever I need to do because I think it's important that he get re-elected." You have to grow thick skin, enjoy people, tackle big projects and, in all of it, keep family as a priority, she said.
The governor has also set his priorities. The staff knows to keep his schedule clear every Sept. 9. That's not his wedding day or an important birthday.
It's the anniversary of their first date.

LOVED the picture of Gov Perry when he was a child. Thanks for posting it.
That’s a big problem for me.
Don’t even me started on selling out the land of Texas to a Spanish company, who would charge Texans for the right to drive on their own roads.
For those of you who don’t know, Perry has been the big push behind the resurrected (renamed) NAFTA SUPERHIGHWAY, called the Trans-Texas Corridor.
Biggest legalized theft, ever.
****** June 29, 2011: ...."Perry wrote in a letter dated Wednesday, According to numerous recent media reports, American citizens and organizations, together with a coalition of violent anti-Israeli organizations from other countries, have organized efforts to breach Israels Maritime blockade of the Gaza Strip as early as this week.
He continued, The act of funding, supporting, organizing and engaging in these efforts appears to constitute participation in a naval expedition against a people with whom the United States is at peace, as well as material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization and other violations.
Perry said at least two of the ships are registered in Delaware, including one named The Audacity of Hope, which was the title of President Barack Obamas second book.
The letter concludes, I respectfully request that the U.S. Department of Justice take immediate steps to investigate, enjoin and bring to justice all parties found to be in violation of U.S. law by their participation in these efforts. Source
Seventeen (17) things that critics are saying about Rick Perry (and a bonus #18 -- Rick Perry is way too chummy with Muslims -- Really?)
When I worked overseas, I had a Brit who kept trying to critizes us by calling the Houston team a bunch of cowboys.
We would grin and say “damned straight”. He just got confused and would repeat it.
He thought he was insulting us. We wore the badge with pride.
YOU don't have to start:
It's #2 for all to read: Seventeen (17) things that critics are saying about Rick Perry
I like someone who knows themselves and is comfortable in their own skin.
On the Fed:
Perrys pro-gun resume reads like something the late Charlton Heston would have been proud of strongly supports the individual right to gun ownership and the subsequent right to use guns in self-defense.
