    Perry is a strong contender but what the pole is not telling you is that Ron Paul is the strongest in the debates.
    The people are looking for someone they can trust to listen to them and then work for them. Big business and big government is finished as far as dictating to the people and they better adjust to it.
    The bottom line is the people are going to vote for the one they believe they can trust the most... radical or not.
    The people also want God back in schools and public places. This is NOT a non believer country and those that don't believe in God can accept it or leave. The people want the choice to choose for themselves and not dictated to them where or when they can pray. God is one of the issues that should be decided on a local basis and not government.
    I believe the people want a secure retirnment. SOCIAL SECURITY is a big issue! Social Security is a major retirnment plan for most of the middle and lower class. Those people want the Social Security plan greatly improved. They are willing to pay more into it as long as they are assured it will be used only for the purpose it is intended. Those currently on SS are struggling because they had no idea that inflation would go so high so fast. They are living on HALF of what they expected and it desperately needs to be adjusted. The Government is responsible for the inflation by over spending and allowing more money to be printed.In the past the middle class was the backbone of America but now has almost been eliminated and has joined the ranks of the poor. This has placed the country a hugh problem because the middle class were the biggest spenders. Now they are forced to live on much less so they are unable to buy new cars, houses and everything they were buying before. That's why so many businesses are struggling.
    The answer is obvious. More money has to go into the hands of the middle class and NOT bail out big businesses. The big businesses will be just fine if they have a solid customer base again.
    We the people know this, so why is the government so blind?
