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.

For those of you keeping score at home, google Grover Norquist.
He actively campaigned for Perry, and they have had joint press conferences.
Norquist has worked with prominent Islamic radicals who have ties to the Saudis and to Libya and to Palestine Islamic Jihad, and who are now under indictment by U.S. authorities.
Yes, that’s RIGHT FOLKS A BIG PERRY BACKER IS FINANCIALLY LINKED TO PEOPLE UNDER INDICTMENT BY THE U,S.
Yes, INDICTMENT— not accused, INDICTED. By our “liberal” Justice department. Should tell you something, right there.
You are going to have to put more than the wallpaper of “Friend of Israel” over those termites. I want to remind our gentle readers that Obama was portrayed as a “friend of Israel” during the election.
Well, well, well!!!
Perry will be a great president!
a little more “Background” for our readers.
Oh for goodness sakes hokie feel good propoganda narrative. He’s a politician not a cowboy.
You are confusing the FedGov and states positions here.
NAFTA is a Federal issue and Perry didn’t have a thing to do with it.
Google Trans-Texas corridor, or wiki it (and read it) before you make yourself look silly.
Actually, a cowboy before he was a politician.
FYI: His boots say Freedom and Liberty
Thanks for all of the links. Bookmarked
The Trans Texas Corridor is dead. The Texas Legislature officially killed it this past session.
That's the point. A conservative would never back such an abuse of emmineint domain and the taxpayer.
I saw one of his town halls. When was the last time you saw anyone say “Yes mam or Yes sir”? That comes from his up bringing and his culture as a Texan. I like the guy. Besides, I view myself as a cowboy. I have been around horsemen/women for over 40 years. Good people.
Who is “they?” Do you have a link with more info?
Nope. Bush was a politician, not a cowboy. It always bothered me that he didn’t ride or have anything to do with horses even though he protrayed himself as a cowboy. I’m married to one and have a cowboy son. Rick Perry is a cowboy. He has his own horse and saddle, good enough for me.
I’m a Texan who lives just a few mile from our Governor. I don’t need to Google anything.
You are a very confused person who doesn’t seem to want to listen.
But, that’s cool. If one-sided opinion are your thing...
I ain’t afraid of Perry. One question I would like to ask him is: “Have you done right by the people that you have governed?” He cultivated the favor of the Muslims...Is this right?
I never understood the left thinking it was an insult when they called Dubya a cowboy.
