Only 4 things can be highlighted as topic designations for a thread post. I found it a hard choice because business/economy, education, government, health/medicine, history, military, politics, religion, science and society all should be included.
It is being reported by environmentalists -- believers in a socialist green religion -- that their judgment and knowledge is being resisted by unscientific, religious deniers hell-bent on blocking their path. So the deniers need to be identified for the good of humankind. This is dangerous. This morning I posted an article that explores with alarm, how Global Warming Consensus is denied by conservatives that their resistance is an ever growing problem stemming from the religious right in America. The American Allergy to Global Warming: Why?
I posted it because Gov. Rick Perry was mentioned at the top of the article. And there is good reason why. Socialists around the world know that Rick Perry has been fighting them on the legal front, the education front, and the environmental front for years. Due to his past, he knows why and where they are determined to lead us. Why would Rick Perry feel so strongly about these issues and their connection to states' rights and free market capitalism? Why does the Left recognize the danger of a Rick Perry controlling the Bully Pulpit of the White House, his veto, his appointments?
Rick Perry grew up on a farm (I know he keeps telling us this but I think it is done for a reason). His mother sewed his clothes. They worked and went to church. Rick Perry was a Boy Scout, earning Eagle Scout rank (so has his son). Rick Perry was a member of the Future Farmers of America. He went to Texas A&M and was a member of the Corps. Rick Perry joined the Air Force, serving 5 years. He flew C-130s around the world before returning to West Texas and the family farm. He courted his future wife, taught Sunday school and worked the land with his father. And in time he went into state politics.
Rick Perry is a self made man. He was called one of the Pit-bulls in the Texas legislature because he was a Democrat member who sat in the lower pit of the House Appropriations Committee and bitterly fought spending increases. He is naturally a conservative. In 1989 he joined the Republican Party that had begun taking root in Texas as the Democratic Party ideology began moving left. Perry ran for the Agriculture Commission seat against leftist Jim Hightower and won. In 1998 Rick Perry ran for Lt. Gov. and won (he was the first Republican Lt. Gov. elected since Reconstruction).
When George W. Bush became president in 2000, Rick Perry became the governor of Texas. He has been reelected twice (the last time beating out Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, a candidate supported by the Bush family and Karl Rove in a primary challenge). When Gov. Rick Perry was elected in 2010 for his 3rd term, he was joined by a Republican super majority in the Texas legislature. Major legislation was passed and signed by Gov. Perry, including (after a 6 year struggle) Photo Voter ID and tighter controls over how money is spent. Perry's history of being attacked by the mainstream media is well known and his election was won without one endorsement by a mainstream media outlet.
Rick Perry has served twice as Chairman of the Republican Governors Association. The country has seen a rise in the number of conservative governors and state legislatures in recent elections. Rick Perry broke fundraising records for the RGA. And now Rick Perry is a candidate in the GOP Primary for President of the United States. He wants to lower taxes, return states' rights, repeal Obama care, and remove the regulations and laws that are strangling our economy, and get people back to work.
Currently, the Left is battling Gov. Rick Perrys stand on Big Education (unions) and EPA Energy and Environment dictates. Trial lawyers have made it known they plan to block any more power going to Rick Perry, as he has won so many victories against them as the Gov. of Texas. The Left knows Rick Perry has his own religious beliefs and does not adhere to their pseudo green religion. They know he understands the land, that he was brought up in a religious home and has worked for everything he has. The Left knows he attended a school that didnt teach him to hate his country but rather instilled love of country. They know he served in the military and still encourages boys to become Boy Scouts. The Left can not put the lie to the fact that Texas' economy is running rings around Obama's disastrous economic policies. The Left knows that when Rick Perry shows compassion has a heart it isnt because he wants to make you dependent on him but rather to set you free.
If the Left can demonize Gov. Perry, a man who believes in standing with our allies, making government as inconsequential as possible in our lives and who holds firmly to his belief in American exceptionalism if they can successfully define him as a rightwing religious dunce, while simultaneously encouraging people in the GOP Primary to lambast him as someone who isnt conservative, then the Left will have won the ideological battle -- their war against capitalism will be complete and they will permanently Rule America.
Once again you’re wasting your time with pathetic attempts to manipulate people into supporting Mitt Perry.
..and a man who believes in buying his votes with taxpayer money by financing an education for illegal citizens; a man who decrees a mandate for immunization by a stroke of his pen; a man who has some apparent difficulty even in full on attacking those rivals who seek the same job he does..yes, lest we forget it’s the Left who takes down someone like Governor Perry all on their own. He himself has no complicity in his own downfall, is that right?. Thank’s for clearing that up.
Rick Perry ruined himself in the last debate with his in state tuition for illegal aliens.
The Left hasn’t ruined Perry. Perry has ruined Perry.
The left has nothing to do with Perry’s self destruction. He did it all by himself, and asked the heartless conservatives to assist him along the way. Now many are quite willing to help him in that regard.
Rick Perry called me, “Heartless”
Rick Perry called me, “Heartless”
“The Left” has not influenced me one bit. I’m just not seeing any “there there” with Perry. Has no real core principles, just like Mittens. Just another politician swaying with the breeze.
IF you'd rather NOT be pinged FReepmail me.
IF you'd like to be added FReepmail me. Thanks.
He ruined himself.
I, for one, am tired of having illegal aliens rammed down my throat and then guilt tripped about it when I speak up against it.
Consider me an uncompassionate conservative.
Perry would be smart to concede that his views regarding illegal aliens is simply not transferrable on a national scale. What may allegedly work in Texas (probably just for political expediency) will not work nationally. A hard line has to be drawn. Kicking this illegal invasion can down the road is no longer acceptable to most conservatives anymore. This is Bush redux.
And as far as I am concerned Governor Perry can stay in Texas and keep spending Texas money to subsidize his favorite illegal aliens through college.
I’m heartless, so that might be why I have 2 big problems with Perry.
You are living in a fantasy world.
Rick Perry was ruined by Rick Perry. That last debate clinched his fate for me. I went from probable support to good bye.
I LOVE that ad, it gives me chills.
