    Sadly for Gov. Perry, the truth hurts. As I mentioned previously, he's on record as saying:

    Everybody on this stage understands it's the regulatory world that is killing America. The real issue facing America [is regulation]. It doesn't make any difference whether it's the EPA or whether it's the federal banking—the Dodd-Frank or Obamacare. That's what's killing America.
    [From 9 November 2011 Republican presidential debate at Oakland University in Rochester, MI.]

    Regulation prevents harm. When someone talks about ending regulation, I think it's fair to ask them:

    What harm do you want to do? What kinds of criminal acts are you trying to enable?
