"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Three Streets -- Wall Street, K Street, and Main Street

December 20, 2011

This new ad says it all about the candidates. Wall Street, K Street, and Main Street are the choices -- not hard to figure out which one will work for the American people. We have a Wall Street President in Obama and don't need another one with Romney. K Street is all about lobbyist and their getting rich on the backs of the taxpayers which is Newt Gingrich and Freddie MAC where both Newt and Barney Frank did very well for themselves. Only candidate in the race who comes from Main Street USA is Rick Perry.

Washington Post went after Governor Perry on his pension when he leaves Texas State Government of $92,376.  Guess they didn't want to go into Mitt Romney's millions he gets every year from Bain Capital since he retired at such an early age for retirees. Then you have the legendary retirements for members of Congress who then turn lobbyists like Newt who received $1.6 from Fannie MAC and all of a sudden that $92,376 looks really small considering he has been Governor of a large State since January of 2001. Guess the Washington Post felt obligated to print a negative on Governor Perry.  After ten years of drawing retirement, Rick Perry still wouldn't equal $1M.  To to put it in perspective, Mitt Romney gets millions in retirement, and Newt Gingrich gets millions now for lobbying/selling his influence.

It is Main Street all the way if you want someone who is not in the hip pocket of Wall Street or K Street.
