Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who recently dropped out of the Republican presidential primary chase, said the way forward for conservatives is to rally behind the idea of federalism.
“We need to be true to the Tenth Amendment or strip it from the Constitution,” Perry said.
The Tenth Amendment reserves all power not delegated to the federal government to the states, and prevents the federal government from wielding unchecked power.
Perry stated that, on top of unifying around the central theme of Federalism, Republicans must work to beat President Obama, who is the primary impediment to the country’s return to prosperity.
Echoing the Chrysler Superbowl commercial with Clint Eastwood, Perry said, “It’s halftime in America. I’m fearful of what the score will be if we let this president start the second half as quarterback.”
