Illinois would turn you down. This is a crony-capitalist state all the way. We’re the East Berlin of America. We’d rather have welfare than work.

JohnEBoy, sorry I didn’t reply originally. I got distracted, but you’re right. I suspect that a lot of the unemployed are new unemployed transplanted to Texas because of its jobs machine.

I’m not convinced that the whole thing belongs to Perry. He’s a politician and has a past, both old and recent, of pro-statist policies. My Texas FRiends seem to feel he’s a RINO held steady by Texas’ conservative politics.

That said he looks like the best thing in the current GOP field. I believe he can win.
