"When my friend former House speaker Newt Gingrich offered to write the foreward to this book, I knew he would do a great job. But I did not know how well he would capture the fundamental point—that Washington is broken and our path to prosperity and freedom runs through the states and the people. Mr. Speaker, thank you." – [excerpted from ] “Fed Up!” by TX Gov. Rick Perry

Good point, FRiend.

However, He SUPPORTED GARDASIL BY EDICT.
Gardasil Perry signed his fascist EDICT in 2007.

How about we examine the FACTS from 2006?

2006 population of women per the census was 151,795,031.

Number of cervical cancer cases
diagnosed in 2005 per the CDC was 11,999.

That means that 00.07904% of women
were diagnosed with cervical cancer.

Number of deaths by cervical cancer in 2005 were 3,924.

Percentage of deaths were 00.00258%.

The problem is
1. Long term effects of Gardasil are still unknown.

2. This drug was not adequately tested on girls given
its known side-effects

3. Cervical cancer is both curable if early, and uncommon.

In that light, what Perry did cannot be excused,
and he certainly has not EVER addressed it.

That means he is a RINO from the fascist RomneyWING.

Your law practice must have really suffered under Rick Perry.

Millions upon millions were spent by trail lawyers to stop Perry.

Trial lawyers: Biggest Democratic Party campaign workers and campaign $$$ angels to Democrats after public sector unions/teachers unions.

I’ve researched this issue.

It is not law.

It was always opt-out.

In TX people speak and our government listens.

When they lowered the speed limit in Houston (new speed signs went up across the massive freeway system) the people spoke up and the speed limit went back to normal and the old signs were replaced.

When they put up red-light cameras the people spoke up and the cameras were turned off.

We do it that way here in TX.

"sanctuary cities"

I believe you mean "SECURE COMMUNITIES.

*****Aug 28, 2007 - [excerpt]....Perry, in Mexico with a Texan trade mission seeking opportunities in areas like renewable energy, said the federal government's plan to build a wall along much of the border to keep out illegal immigrants was "idiocy."

"We need those individuals to continue to grow our economy," Perry told a briefing with reporters.

"If you show up illegally, without your card or you're here as a criminal element, I'm for throwing the book at those folks, but the issue of people who want to legally, thoughtfully and appropriately come to America to work and help us build our economy -- we should quickly come up with a program and an identification card to do that."

Congress failed to pass a comprehensive overhaul of immigration laws in June despite heavy lobbying by President George W. Bush.

Following the reform failure, Washington is concentrating on border enforcement -- building a security fence along the Mexican border, deporting undocumented immigrants and trying to prevent companies from hiring illegal migrants..

Perry, a Republican, said it was important to separate immigration from security issues, which Texas has dealt with on its stretch of the Mexican border by deploying more guards.

"We know how to deal with border security, and you don't do it by building a fence," Perry said, ahead of a meeting with Mexican President Felipe Calderon.... [end excerpt]

**********

EXPAND! EXPAND! EXPAND Secure Cities [TX legislature meets every 2 years]

As Texas moves toward expanding Secure Communities, several northern states are dropping out of the program that matches the fingerprints of those arrested against a U.S. [ICE] database.

Last week, before Gov. Rick Perry's announcement that the expansion of Secure Communities would be on the agenda for the Legislature's special session, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced his state will not take part in the program. [end excerpt]

Good post. I am voting for the person who can beat obama. Four more years of him and we won’t recognize our country. Right now, Perry looks like the one who can beat the commie POS. He’s been at the helm for ten years and Texas is the one state which has weathered the storm and come out on top. Is he perfect? No. But this is not the election for perfection. Give him a shot. If he doesn’t uphold conservative principles, we vote him out in four. We know he is in our corner when it comes to the big three - God, guns and country.

Illegal immigrants entering Texas’ higher education system are direct beneficiaries of a 1982 Supreme Court decision, Plyler vs. Doe. Parents in Tyler sued after the state began charging tuition for illegal immigrant children. The court ruled that Texas and the rest of the country must educate illegal immigrant children free of charge in public schools.

Some of the most vocal illegal immigration opponents don’t oppose the decision. But they say higher education is different, because it is tuition-based.

Suit challenges law

A lawsuit was filed in December challenging Texas’ law providing the students in-state tuition and state aid. The students are not eligible for federal aid such as Pell Grants.

Attorneys for the Immigration Reform Coalition of Texas sued the University of Houston, Houston Community College and Lone Star College systems in Harris County District Court, but the case was moved to federal court. “It’s not like we’re swimming in budget surpluses,” said attorney David Rogers. “It’s the responsibility of the government of Mexico to educate Mexican citizens.”

Challenges to similar laws are also occurring in California and Nebraska. Arizona bans illegal immigrants from receiving in-state tuition.

Rogers argued that taxpayers suffer because of the law. It’s unfair, he added, that the state gives benefits that students from Oklahoma or other states can’t receive.

A challenge to a similar law in Kansas failed in 2005 after a federal judge found that out-of-state college students had no standing to challenge the law there, since they had not been harmed by it.

Rogers said states are not supposed to offer benefits to illegal immigrants that are not offered to eligible U.S. citizens.

But University of Houston law professor Michael A. Olivas said federal law clearly allows states to draft their own policies, and he believes the Texas case is similar to the Kansas one.

“It is a matter for states to determine,” he said. “In-state status is a state issue.”

Illegal immigrant students were never barred from enrolling in Texas colleges, but the higher tuition price tag for nonstate residents often meant they couldn’t afford to attend.

The Texas law requires students to attend school in the state for at least three years before graduation from a Texas high school. Students also must file an affidavit saying they plan to apply for permanent residency as soon as possible. State officials have argued that the treatment is not preferential in comparison to residency requirements for other students.

State Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, has tried sponsoring a bill denying education benefits to illegal immigrants in the past, but he later realized that went against the Plyler precedent.

“I have concerns about the expense for taxpayers,” Berman said. “We’re not providing enough grant and loan money to our own U.S. citizens.”

Carlos Hernandez , 27, was an illegal immigrant when he graduated from the University of Texas in 2005 with a degree in petroleum engineering. He has since become a U.S. citizen through marriage. He moved from Mexico to Texas when he was 9 years old.

He said many parents and students already pay taxes, and that he hopes immigration reform will create a “return on investment” for the state.

I'll post this link so others can read what you're talking about. Thanks.

Rick Perry’s Tenth Commandment [excerpt] Speaking of presidents: Rick Perry has a complicated relationship with the Bushes, which is to say that he’s hesitant to criticize them and they hate his guts. W. stayed well away from Perry’s gubernatorial-primary melee against Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, whose oatmeal-mushy Republicanism has a distinctly Bushian savor to it. But the mark of W. was all over the campaign against Perry. Former president George H. W. Bush endorsed Senator Hutchison, an unusual step for the habitually reserved retiree, who usually stays well removed from the dirty business of vote-grubbing, surveying the groundlings from the heights of his eminence. Bush père was joined in his support by former vice president Dick Cheney, who offered an endorsement and called Hutchison “the real deal.” Hutchison was further fortified by the Bush clan’s in-house Machiavelli, former secretary of state James Baker, who led the Florida recount fight in 2000 and remains their go-to fixer. W. mouthpiece Karen Hughes came out of the political woodwork to support the insurgency, along with W.’s secretary of education Margaret Spellings. Karl Rove advised Team Hutchison. The gang was all there: All this in a primary challenge to unseat an incumbent Republican governor with one of the most conservative — and most successful — records to be found: Que paso, Bushes?

Part of that was payback. Perry, generally circumlocutious on the subject of W., gave himself a little time off the leash during the 2008 Republican presidential primaries. Often caricatured as yet another snake-handling southern social conservative, Governor Perry backed thrice-married dress-wearing pro-choice lapsed Catholic Rudy Giuliani, on the theory that Rudy would be a badass commander-in-chief abroad and a reliable constitutionalist at home. Politics being politics, the Texan and the New Yorker met up in Iowa, where more than a few Hawkeye conservatives were already getting restive about out-of-control federal spending on the Republicans’ watch. Governor Perry let loose the observation that “George” — and the Bushies hate it when Perry calls him “George” in public — “has never been a fiscal conservative.” Never? “Wasn’t when he was in Texas . . . ’95, ’97, ’99, George Bush was spending money.” He also criticized Bush as being limp on immigration.

The truth hurts, but there’s more to the Bush-Perry friction than that. One longtime observer of Lone Star politics described the Bushes’ disdain of Perry as “visceral,” and it is not too terribly hard to see why. The guy that NPR executives and the New York Times and your average Subaru-driving Whole Foods shopper were afraid George W. Bush was? Rick Perry is that guy. George W. Bush was Midland by way of Kennebunkport. Rick Perry’s people are cotton farmers from Paint Creek, a West Texas town so tiny and remote that my Texan traveling-salesman father looked at me skeptically and suggested I had the name wrong when I asked him whether he knew where it was. (Governor Perry confesses that one of the politiciany things he’s done in office is insisting that the Texas highway atlas include Paint Creek, making him the hometown boy who literally put the town on the map.) Bush is a Yalie, Perry is an Aggie. Bush served in the Texas Air National Guard, and Perry was a captain in the U.S. Air Force, flying C-130s in the Middle East. Bush has a gentleman’s ranch, Perry has the red meat. The irony is that Perry, a tea-party favorite, personifies the hawkish new fiscal conservatism that has allowed the GOP to find its way out from under George W. Bush’s shadow, but he himself remains in the shade of that politically poisonous penumbra. [end excerpt]

I like Sarah Palin.

I like Rick Perry.

From Rush:

June 20, 2011

[break transcript]

GOV. PERRY: We need to stop apologizing for celebrating life.

RUSH: Right on.

GOV. PERRY: We need to stop apologizing —

RUSH: Right on.

GOV. PERRY: — for wanting to protect an individual’s right to build a business.

RUSH: Right on.

GOV. PERRY: We need to stop apologizing about stemming the tide of entitlement mind-set that’s out there. We ought to be proud of our efforts to give local parents and communities a say on how their children are educated, protecting that fundamental right of private property ownership. Our party cannot be all things to all people. It can’t be. And our loudest opponents on the left are never gonna like us so let’s quit trying to curry favor with ‘em!

AUDIENCE: (applause)

RUSH: Right on!

GOV. PERRY: Let’s speak with pride about our morals and our values and redouble our effort to elect more conservative Republicans. Let’s stop this American downward spiral!

AUDIENCE: (applause)

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, you know what? I now know how you feel when you’re listening to me. I now know how you applaud it. I now know how you get all revved up when you’re listening to me. Damn straight. Finally! Why in the world do we apologize? This comes from this defensive position that you always end up in when you accept somebody else’s premise in an argument. He’s exactly right: Why apologize at all for celebrating life? Stop apologizing for wanting to protect an individual’s right to build a business? Of course, the MSNBC story: “Rick Perry delivered an unapologetically socially conservative speech,” as though he’s supposed to apologize. I just love this bite. We have this one and...let me see... a couple more. And again we’ve edited the applause just in the interests of time.

GOV. PERRY: This administration in Washington that’s in power now clearly believes that government is not only the answer to every need, but it’s the most qualified to make essential decisions for every American in every area. That mix of arrogance and audacity that guides the Obama administration is an affront to every freedom loving American and a threat to every private sector job in this country.

AUDIENCE: (applause and cheers)

RUSH: All right. So he’s out there articulating the truth, he’s getting stupendous applause and yet, “Nah-nah-nah can’t have Rick Perry. He’s from Texas. He’s too close to Bush. We don’t want anybody from Texas! Bush is from Texas. We hate Texas — or not ‘we,’ but the voters. The voters don’t want anybody else from Texas.” This is the message from the elites, the inside-the-Beltway geniuses who like to tell us what we will and what we won’t vote for or who we will and won’t vote for. I think Perry understands who we are. We have a choice. We have a decision to make as Americans.

GOV. PERRY: Will history view us as the generation of Americans that kinda collectively shrugged their shoulders and said, “I guess there’s nothing that I can do? Will we just watch our nation continue this slow backwards slide? Will future generations of Americans living a life without any direction or decision that’s not made by some bureaucrat wonder: “Why didn’t somebody do something?” I’ve got more confidence in America’s energy and character. I totally believe it’s time to reconnect with the greatest attributes of our nation, to regain that resiliant spirit and recapture that love of freedom, remembering its true price. We’re all facing the same challenges in America. I stand before you today a disciplined conservative Texan — a committed Republican and a proud American — united with you in the desire to restore our nation and revive the American dream.

AUDIENCE: (applause)

RUSH: Right on, right on. Again, we edited the applause there. Now, this is not sitting well with the Drive-Bys and the State-Controlled Media. We have now a bite here from Scarborough’s show morning on PMSNBC. We had Scarborough, we have Mika Brzezinski, we had a cohost Willie Geist — and Mark Halperin, the TIME Magazine editor-at-large — having this conversation about Rick Perry.
BRZEZINSKI: I watched this, I felt like an alien watching this —

SCARBOROUGH: (guffawing)

BRZEZINSKI: — from the audience —

SCARBOROUGH: Felt like an alien?

BRZEZINSKI: I did. I felt like an alien.

REPORTER: What do you mean? I don’t get it.

BRZEZINSKI: Well, this was the Republican leadership conference in New Orleans.

SCARBORUGH: Right.

BRZEZINSKI: The crowd was chanting, “Ruuuun, Rick, run!”

SCARBOROUGH: You know, I — I think I saw this guy on Broadway.

GEIST: One man show.

SCARBOROUGH: What was it called?

HALPERIN: Uhhh, “Thank you, America?”

GEIST: You’re welcome.

HALPERIN: You’re welcome.

SCARBOROUGH: That’s right, Will Ferrell doing George W. Bush.

RUSH: Do you believe that? Have you seen the Will Ferrell one-man show? It’s juvenile; it’s banal. It’s not even funny. It’s just gratuitous. It’s almost like a comedian impressionist has nothing else left in his act except to impersonate Bush, years after Bush is gone. I guarantee you, George Bush doesn’t say these kind of things. He certainly didn’t say these kind of things in the last two, three years of his administration. But man, oh, man! Here’s Mika Brzezinski saying she feels like an alien listening to this? I think this illustrates the great divide that we face. We feel like she’s from another planet when we listen to her.

We feel like Obama from another star system when we listen to him. Listening to Obama, it feels like Darth Vader has taken over in real life. But they think Rick Perry is alien. This is just, as far as I’m concerned... (interruption) I’m not endorsing the guy. No, no, no, Snerdley. I’m not doing anything of the sort. I’m just telling you what happened. I want to contrast this with Rick Perry with what Jon Huntsman. There are reams and reams and reams of newsprint and copy over Huntsman announcing tomorrow, and they’re excited, and they can’t wait — even the people in the State-Controlled Media.
BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: One more Rick Perry sound bite here, folks, talking about American exceptionalism, and he does so genuinely here. There might be some other candidates bringing it up. See what you think of this.

PERRY: I see a stronger America, built on the solid foundation of spiritual strength, of individual liberty, of self-determination. We must recapture that vision and begin the hard work of lighting the way for millions of Americans who are adrift in the sea of economic misery. Let’s lead ‘em to the safe harbor of American renewal and the shores of American exceptionalism. (applause.)

RUSH: Rick Perry, they say he looks like an alien, my God, just look at Obama’s Supreme Court nominees for crying out loud. You want me to name ‘em? Sonia Sotomayor, alien anybody? Elena Kagan? Look at some of the czars and look at some of the cabinet members. And of course notice the logic here. Perry, he’s an alien. He’s like Bush, who was elected president twice. George W. Bush was elected president twice, so who is out of the mainstream here? But ultimately it’s a good sign the media feels that Perry is an alien.

I did not say that Rush ENDORSED Perry. I believe that I agreed with your first post regarding that and shared that I was aware of it.

He STILL said that Perry getting into the race was a good thing because he would spice it up with his unadulterated conservatism.

None of that negates anything that I stated... or that Rush stated. Rush has not and will not endorse perry or anyone else for the primaries... he said so multiple times in the last week. One caller begged him to not endorse anyone and Rush said he had no intention of endorsing anyone... but he will discuss them in detail.

Why are you making that point?

I’ve said nothing of the kind.

No... but you inferred it and I just made the statement so that others would know that Rush is not endorsing or backing anyone. If I misread your post them I am sorry.

Rush is pi$$ed that none of these people are attacking obama directly... and he really attacked hunstman yesterday for his exclaiming that he respects obama and will remain civil and not resort to personal attacks... and then Rush played a speech of Reagan's where Reagan attacked carter both personally and professionally and laid the blame directly on peanut-head's head. You didn't say anything about that either but I think it ties in with the thread discussion.

I DO care who gets in the race. The more these candidates can focus the attention on Obama’s destruction of this country....the better!

More candidates = more focus

I am also praying that we end up with a virtuous candidate who looks to God and who has common sense and wisdom.

It does not matter if it was OPT OUT.

Perry is a RINO of the Romney-FASCIST type.
He ordered children to take an untested toxic
substance for his own profit.

Perry is a RINO for RomneyCARE, Medical fascism
if it makes HIM money, and illegal aliens.
