Skip to comments.Perry calls Social Security bankrupt 'Ponzi scheme'

...Calling the New Deal a glut of federal programs, Perry said the creation of the Social Security system did very little to end the Great Depression...Unfortunately, the New Deal has essentially become the third rail of American politics that indiscriminately kills the political careers of any leader bold enough to criticize it or any program it created, he said.

The PR machine is coming out full tilt for Perry now that 2010 elections are over. Even old man Bloomberg is shilling for him--reporters were crawling all over Perry's book claiming that government was telling people how much salt they could put in their food (he did not substantiate that in the book) and suddenly, Mikey B is all about salt in food in NYC. Coincidence?
But this stuff he's shoveling about the New Deal and the feds--well, what has Perry ever done to cut Texas budgets and reduce state government? He tried to pass the biggest land grabs in the country outside of the national parks and monuments, which Texan farmers and landowners had to unite to stop. He's still trying to toll across Texas, never mind the gas taxes the state collects. He tried to rubberstamp an unproven vaccine into every Texas schoolkid's bloodstream--without any real public groundswell for this. He has continued to watch the property taxes of Texans go through the roof to pay illegals' bills--a group he won't say an evil word against (it may be he's afraid George P. might get angry).
Be careful with this one. Make him show where he's walked the walk in Texas, where he's going to favor the original Constitution over the globobaloney types and their companies, before believing the hype.
I bet he runs!!!
2012 is coming.
Rick Perry is a t*rd sandwich, Bill White was a douche bag. We smartly elected the t*rd sandwich as go of Texas because White is such a moron.
Rick Perry for president? Please no! The only way I’d vote for Perry is if that piece of garbage Jeb Bush was running against Perry.
Perry is an uber-RHINO. No thanks!
Perry is an unrepentant globalist, effectively, an intelligent version of GWB. He would be a terribly destructive President, in part, because he would be far more effective.
No doubt in my mind he’s running.
I am simply concerned that better choices might not have his p.r. machine. Perry should not be viewed as a constitutionalist conservative simply because he seems to say so.
In Before “Big Hair Perry is a new world order RINO socialist who is doing nothing about the border” reality challenged individuals.

I’d have to at least consider a vote for Perry if Specter, Lugar, or Crist were running against him...but yeah, generally, we agree. 8^)
“Perry is an uber-RHINO.”
Do go on. Evidence, anecdote, reason, rhyme? Any intellect at all behind your sh!t-slinging?
Try grounding yourself in reality.
Nothing. Perry is a stinking big-government RINO. A Bush-Lite. I'm just waiting for the next Perry boondoggle to come down the pike.
Big Hair Perry is a new world order RINO socialist who is doing nothing about the border.
Good luck with that request.
The shrill and unjustified hatred of Perry by some here on FreeRepublic is nothing short of insane.
Perry is an open-borders RINO.
Perry will be the 2012 Republican nominee, and will destroy Obama.
Another open-borders Texas LBJ “republicant-replicant.”
Perry’s whole family are Dems.
Here is a picture of Rick Perry trying to hand O'Zero a letter asking for federal help on the border.
But Frantzie says "Perry is an open-borders RINO."
Rick Perry Derangement Syndrome on display.
Maybe Perry will touch that other third rail of open borders and illegals invading and bankrupting America.
I will not hold my breath. He is amnesty McCain with a better hair do.
How is that dead guy who got shot by Mexicans in that lake doing?
