People are being made aware of important core issues: the huge divide between the rich and poor. There are poor, and it’s no fun being poor.

  • Governor is lone star among GOP hopefuls

    A national Gallup poll now shows Rick Perry in third place among GOP presidential candidates, behind Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.
