I ran as far away from Daniels as possible in terms of running for President, but I have a very different view in this role. I am guessing he’d be interested, as VP is a lot less taxing on the family. It is really 2 months of intensive campaigning and a whole lot less limelight on wife and kids (Palin being the glaring exception to that statement). Sure, they’ll pull out some of the dirt on his marriage irregularities, but there’s not much there there. The marriage was broken, and they repaired it with many happy years since.

I think the swing voters, especially mid-western swing states would be very attracked to a Perry/Daniels ticket.

I think what you're getting at is you don't want a NWO, world government, Globalist being elected (who can be Socialists, Marxist, even Republicans) The Bible says this will come to past and IMO, there's not a lot we can do to change that. (only delay it)

I'm a Texan and Gov. Perry has given some impressions of being a Globalist but, it has a lot to do with Texas’ position in the world as a major energy and agricultural economy.

I spent hours researching the NAU, TTC, and other connections to foreign governments Perry/Texas have been involved in. We raised HELL and Perry changed his tune. Rare in a politician these days.

Bottom line is getting the self-professed Communist out of the White house. (after that we can work on the Biblical aspects)

I believe Perry has the best chance to beat Obama and I think he will abide by the will of the people.

It should be but, given our last choice for president, I don’t think it’s up to ‘us’. (a least not presently)

IMO, Perry has the best chance to get the Commie out of the WH. If the *establishment* deems him the nominee, I’m fully behind him.(a third party, at this point, would most likely put Barry back in charge) Everything else can wait till later.

I like Rubio a lot, BUT....

He went wobbly on the AZ illegal alien law and appears he supports amnesty for these 30-40 million scum alien invaders/DNC socialists who declard war on America.

Reagan did this as well. It is a big big mess that I agree needs fixed.

It is not just the foreign government connection on TTC.
It was also the part of TTC that included seizing plots of land at intersections using eminent domain to sell to commercial developers.
enough to cover all of the inevitable gas stations at many intersections, and enough for an industrial park at one interstate intersection likely to attract trucking businesses.

That was Kelo vs. New London on steroids.

If you are capable of twisting your mind to be okay with that, you deserve communism. I am opposing Perry. People in my church look at this and the conclusion they get is diametrically opposed to yours.

If Perry gets in, it will be over the opposition of people who vote for honest men like Herman Cain instead of your little socialist Ken Doll.

When you try to gloss over parts of Perry's record you do yourself no favors.

You do realize the TTC never came to fruition, right?

Might you also realize that we still need some sort of transportation plan. Seems like since the TTC was shot down, (and it was shot down) very little has been in the works.

Damned strait I realize it.

I was one of the Texans working to top Perry from getting this through then and we who stopped him then will also successfully keep him out of the white house now.

Even if Rockafeller Republicans make him the Republican nominee.

I was right there with you in protesting the TTC and had friends who were willing to go into armed conflict in order to save their family farms and ranches. We won and now Perry has signed an eminent domain bill into law to protect those same families. Definite (and unusual) turnaround.

Maybe he listened to the people?

I completely understand your refusal to vote for someone you consider a *socialist* but, if you really believe Obama needs to go, voting for an unproven, non-political candidate might not be the best way to achieve that goal.

Just sayin.
