Perhaps it’s a bit cynical on Perry’s part but he may simply be one of the first Republicans to realize that large numbers of the illegals get to vote here. They have heretofore been a wholly owned subsidiary of the democrats. I don’t agree with providing benefits to illegals but I really don’t agree with letting their vote saddle us with another four years of obama.
I’m not sure what to do since simple, workable solutions seem pretty scarce.
And that absolutely should not be allowed. I wish we had a candidate up there who was strong enough to say that.
Texas did pass the Voter ID bill, though, over the protests of whining minorities. We have to show a picture ID at the polls now and I'm quite OK with that.
