I am curious to see what The Free Republic response to Gov. Perry as a potential GOP candidate for the 2012 POTUS election will be.
I think Perry would be much more formidable than say Mitt, Huntsman, Newt or the other RINOs.
While being a bit of a rube he at least is a conservative.
Sooo, HOw’s things going in Taiwan? You ok there?
They nervous about the Chi-coms invading what with this marxist turd just waiting to throw the country under the bus?
Also I miss Asia’s open markets like you show in your about page. Loads of fun walking them and wondering just what the heck this or that is??
I live in Tennessee and a lot of people here are excited about Perry getting into this race. They see him as a more formidable voice for conservative principles.

Speaking for myself, I have mixed emotions. I want to see an actual conservative run for President on the gop ticket. Because I am a conservative and a patriot and do care about this country.
Then there is that selfish part of me that would much rather stay home, tend to the garden, read books, and not lift a finger to assist the feckless gop and it’s faux conservative candidates.
“Gardasil Rick” Perry is the kind of fair weather conservative who talks a good tale until about 15 minutes after the election. So, for what are purely selfish reasons, I have some hope that he becomes the gop candidate. I’ll have a nicer garden, and will be able to sleep in late on election day.
I’ll even name a row of vegetables after him.
"Mixed" by posters, "tolerated" (for the time-being) by the administrators.
Perry seems to be the latest flavor of the month from the "Anybody but Palin" crowd.
From Texas FReepers who know Perry:
