Forceful? LOL....about as forceful as hitting a nail with a feather....

It's time for Perry to call it quits. We don't need another Texas RINO...one was enough.

Better than a Massachusetts liberal.

There are those of us who don’t want Perry to call it quits. I thought he looked Presidential last night and his answers were simple and straightforward.
And his record is conservative all the way.

Notice how I can say I’m for Perry without insulting or tearing down other candidates. Novel idea, huh!

Rick Perry is not George W. Bush.

President Bush was comfortable with "big-[federal]-government solutions" to problems (even problems that are none of the federal government's business, if it sticks to its constitutional charter as it is required to do in order to be constitutionally-legitimate).

Perry advocates the devolution of governmental power from Washington back to the States and the People. This, to me, signifies that he is truly a constitutional conservative — as well as a social and fiscal one (as demonstrated by his public record).

To me, just about the entire Republican Party establishment is "RINO" these days. And they definitely do not want Perry to succeed: He is a threat to the status quo that they are eminently "comfortable" with.

More and more the GOP has abandoned its conservative roots, if by that we mean limited, constitutional government, responsive and accountable to the People....

Are any of these GOP establishment folks unhappy with the inexorable decline of individual liberty in this country? I see no evidence of it.

Which is why I left the GOP last summer, and re-registered officially as an "Independent."

If Perry makes the final cut, I would be one Independent voter who chooses to cast my ballot for him.

FWIW.
