Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

he threatened to use his veto power before he actually exercised such to force her out. That is the root of this ethics violation: Making the threat to removed someone from their duly elected position and using a power only you have as Chief Executive to affect the outcome you wanted. That's the reason for the indictment, not whether or not you or anyone else believes Rosemary Lehmberg is a drunkard or that she should have resigned.
It's clear abuse of power.
Moreover, by vetoing the bill Gov. Perry withheld funds from a department or division whose job it is to investigate ethics violations. Kinda seems like a contradictory action to me.
