After weeks and months of speculation, Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) made it official Saturday afternoon, announcing his bid for the Republican nomination for President.

In Charleston, South Carolina, Perry focused on the usual characteristics of both his and Republican ideology, and unsurprisingly targeted President Barack Obama and the left to the delight of his crowd.

“The liberals out there are saying we need to pay more (in taxes),” Perry said, before a loud yell of “No” from the audience. “We are indignant about leaders who won’t listen, and the people are not subjects of the government, the government is subject to the people.”

“It is up to us to take a stand for freedom, to send a message to Washington, we’re taking our future back,” he added. “It’s time to limit and simplify our taxes in this country.” “And we will repeal this President’s misguided, ‘one sized fits all’ government health care plan immediately.”

“I’ll work to try to make DC as inconsequential in your life as I can.”
