How funny ! It’s all about the secret handshake... if Perry doesn’t know it, i’m not voting for him, as it will indeed make him a true RINO ...
It’s nice to see some FReeper fighters here today...standing up for Rick Perry.
I am not seeking a perfect candidate, just a conservative one and RINO Rick is far from being conservative.
Why do you Perry apologists think calling Perry out for his liberal leanings is an attack? It's part of his record as governor of the state of Texas. You may think we should overlook his past but his past is exactly what we should all use to form our opinions.
It's very simple, really. Perry has things in his past that I and many are just not willing to overlook. Perry apologists are willing and do. It gets no deeper than that.
The real enemy is obami and his flunkies like Holder, Lisa Jackson, Cass Sundstein, Arne Duncan, etc. They are the real enemy of freedom and must be eliminated from control of the country.
” One cannot be conservative and advocate for liberal causes AND liberal candidates.”
Hmmm, that’s odd ... Didn’t Palin support Perry ? According to you Perry is a Liberal RINO , so what does that make Palin given your logic ?
Have you seen this article?
I’m not going to comment on the intent or tone of the article but please tell me which points of this are Liberal and which points you would agree or disagree.
It would be good to read the article because I’m just listing the points and not the whole article.
1. Abolish lifetime tenure for federal judges by amending Article III, Section I of the Constitution.
2. Congress should have the power to override Supreme Court decisions with a two-thirds vote.
3. Scrap the federal income tax by repealing the Sixteenth Amendment.
4. End the direct election of senators by repealing the Seventeenth Amendment.
5. Require the federal government to balance its budget every year.
6. The federal Constitution should define marriage as between one man and one woman in all 50 states.
7. Abortion should be made illegal throughout the country.
Now that you mentioned “Appologists”.......
No matter how many correct and honest facts you present to these people, you are wasting your time. They have a one track agenda and nothing you do, will change their way of thinking.
Perry is doing great on the campaign trail and racking up support wherever he goes. He is also taking on everyone from Obama, to Matthews to Karl Rove and brushing them off with ease.
this is about you and your ilk jumping Perry threads. Most Perry supporters like or have at least supported Palin at some point. Ya'lls tactics are ridiculous and push more people from Palin than to her.
Perry will win this nomination whether Palin joins the fray or not. It's just frustrating to try to enjoy some news about your candidate without having a bunch of guerrillas jump every thread to change to conversation. It's a joke.
I’m not a Palin defender. I was, in fact, one of her biggest critics when she endorsed Juan McCain. So your post means nothing to me.
We are all supporting Rick Perry for President. Looks like we have a fractured Tea Party
And do you really think pointing out a misspelling of a word makes your case (actually, that was a sticky key)? Many if not most here think doing so only makes you look petty. The 'spelling police' have a new spokesman in the name of 'PSYCHO-FREEP". Wear that badge with honor.
I proof read nothing so you're likely to find plenty of misspelled words in my posts. Have at it.
So true, and you know what? When all the dust has settled most of the posters here will cast their vote against Obama whether it be for Perry, Palin, Romney, etc. I well remember all the posters in 2008 who said they wouldn’t vote for McCain if he were the last man on earth, but in the end they did.
If the article was a hit piece it failed for me.
As I recall, JimRob was a Democrat once upon a time, so holding that against Perry is (another) losing strategy.
Palin is no where near Perry in executive experience when you live in an insulated state so far removed from almost any actual American problem. The state is smaller than about a quarter the size of Houston population wise, taxes oil companies for revenue and receives the 3rd most federal welfare of any state.
Alaska has no income tax or sales tax. How on earth does that translate to Washington when your budget consists of Federal welfare and oil money? If she ever made it to DC she would have to adopt Rick Perry's Texas model. I promise Perry wont adopt the Alaska model because it's unrealistic
You mean like George Soros’ Texas Tribune rooting for “larryflint” ronpaul?
Even these loons don’t think Perry is CFR.
The problem for the pedestrian student of conspiracy is that Rick Perry is CLEAN! According to Count Vittorio in Venice, Perry is noted for the following:
1. He is a member of NO Secret Societies including Scottish-Rite Freemasonry.
2. He is not a member of the Bilderbergers. Perry was only a guest for TWO HOURS of the meeting dealing with the Trans-Texas Corridor. He was then escorted out of the Bilderberger Conference immediately after that session of the conference. Now the Bilderbergers are full of Knights of Malta, including King Juan Carlos, the impetus behind the Trans-Texas Corridor.
3. He is not even a Third-degree Freemason.
4. He is not a member of the Rotary Club, though he has attended meetings.
5. He is not a Knight of Malta or member of any other papal knighthood.
6. He is not a member of Skull and Bones.
7. He is not a member or attendant of Bohemian Grove.
8. He is not a member of the CFR or Trilateral Commission.
9. He is not a Roman Catholic, but rather a Protestant Methodist.
Further, Rick Perry is a clean-cut, well-spoken, Conservative Republican White man who is VERY attractive to all White men in general now driven to national and financial desperationas intendedby the Obama/Biden administration openly connected to the Jesuit Order. Perry is responsible for stimulating the economy of Texas, appears to be a genuine Christian recently calling for prayer in Texas, and is a successful husband and father. In short, he is EVERYTHING most Whites are panting for, and once a few manipulations are concluded, even the White Tea Party will finally endorse him. Just watch!
It also doesn’t help that she quit before finishing her term .
It's supposed to be fractured now. The nomination hasn't occurred yet.
Or are we all supposed to rally around whoever you support because... you support them?
I take it when Palin wins you plan on voting for Ubama?
If she gets in the race, we’ll find out why she quit.
Now that you mentioned Appologists.......
And as a result, I assumed, wrongly, apparently, that since you quoted my misspelling you were alluding to it. I apologize for my faux pas.
BTW..Perry sucks. :-P
IF she does win , i’ll vote for her . Will you vote for Perry WHEN he wins ?
I could care less what you think of Perry, but at least do us all a favor and don't start the “cheers” crap, shortly after taking a dump in our MRE’s!
That’s like those claiming they are Christians yet supporting abortion or/and homosexuality. You cannot be a Christian and adhere to these.....you may call yourself one...that’s easy...but you are not.
I’ve got no proof for this, but I’ve got a strong suspicion that Sarah will stay out of the race as long as Perry is going strong. She may even — GASP — endorse him.
Perry is running and is a better candidate in my opinion and is also who I support. I find Perry threads to hear news about my candidate and I have to constantly wade through the same minutia over and over by a hand full of Freepers hell bent on destroying Perry to build Palin up.
>>>Texas Gov. Rick Perry has picked up two important endorsements in South Carolina for his 2012 presidential campaign.
Longtime state legislator David Wilkins, who played a big role in George W. Bushs White House races, says hes signing onto Perrys bid. And Harvey Peeler, majority leader in the state Senate, is jumping on the Perry bandwagon, too.
Wilkins, who rose to House speaker before Bush named him ambassador to Canada, and Peeler are the most notable backers to announce their support for a candidate in early primary-voting South Carolina.
Both endorsements came even though U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint of encouraged fellow leading Republicans in South Carolina to hold off for now on making endorsements.<<<
>>>>>Rick Perry picks up big endorsement in South Carolina>>>>COLUMBIA, S.C. Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry stayed on script during two appearances in Florence Friday morning, attacking President Barack Obama on job creation while touting his own record for job creation as governor of Texas.
In doing so, Perry, governor of Texas, picked up a key endorsement from Florence physician Eddie Floyd, one of the states most influential Republican fundraisers. Floyd introduced Perry at Carolinas Hospital Systems as “the next president of the United States.”
......About 500 people crowded into Bazens Family Restuarant for Perrys appearance in Florence.
Another 300 had to wait outside because of fire safety rules. <<<...........
Yeah I actually had a freeper tell me taxing the oil companies to pay down the debt was a good thing. Surely he said that because Sarah taxed em in Alaska. Obama has pushed that along with Pelosi for years.
One Freeper commented on "the Undefeated" and she said it had a bad anti Republican anti oil bent to it. She said it actually turned her off to Palin. I think her name was conservativegreatgrandma.
That's absolute hogwash! There's not a Freeper on this site who fails to see Obama for who he is.....and what he's doing to this country. Comments like that belong in the sewer.
They are more concerned that someone other than St. Sarah might be the one to wipe FUBOs stain off the country's leadership.
That's equally hogwash!.. Would you say that you're more concerned that someone other than St. Perry might be the one to wipe Fubo's stain off the country's leadership?
We all are fully aware of who the enemy is.....that goes without saying....and we're all hoping the best of our candidates win....but they are not even all out there running yet and there's more to come as the deadline approaches.
This article should clue folks in on why we cannot get immigration enforcement in TX. Pena & biz lobby tried to pass a guest-worker program like they pulled off in Utah with front Repubs in SOMOS REPUBLICANS. Same carnival here in TX. Perry loves to appoint Hispanics into key positions. AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PERRY ought to be his nickname. He also indirectly participated in a robo-call campaign to knock off a Bork-type judge on the Tx. Supreme Court (Steve Smith-2002).
Now here is the proof of his love of quotas/”hate crimes” law. It simply reveals his philosophy. Look at his appointments.Is he pushing integrationism or merit?
Check out Post #81.
Endorsements are rolling in, despite a call to stay neutral.
I think you just spoke for many of us. Thank you.
And re: support coming to Perry, check out Post #81.
Exactly. Perry and his connection to SOMOS REPUBLICANS I find scary. But I live close enough to Mexico to have had my life and my livelihood effected by the hordes of ILLEGALs that infest this country so I understand that my view, compared to some, may be unique.
Another Ron Paul nutbag.
Sorry, you are wrong.
Taxing oil in Alaska is not the same as Obama imposing a windfall tax for no reason. Alaskans OWN the natural resource per the state constitution...so the money went not only for governance etc...but straight to the people.
Isn’t that the truth. I said this back to a FReeper when they kept saying Perry was a liberal. I said what does that make Sarah, then?
I never said that....I knew if that RINO was the nominee...I’d vote for him. I wouldn’t stay at home...in fact, as much as I disliked McRino...I made phone calls for his campaign, partly because of Sarah and mostly because I didn’t won’t barry to win.
If Sara stays out and endorses Perry the primaries are (barring a big gaff) practically over.
The obligatory Psycho-Freep conflict-of-interest disclaimer:
"Just for the record, I happen to be one of those Blood Sucking Takers who helped pioneer the Prudhoe Bay Oilfield for Atlantic Richfield and Sohio. We braved 130 Below zero wind chills for decades, to produce that badly needed oil for America....Palins ignorant, punitive and Populist attack on that established effort, nearly put a halt to everything good we worked so hard to create."
My point is “swift boating” is telling the truth...not lies like the MSM makes it out to be....
Really? Is that why? Huh. Did Thaddeus McCotter attract large crowds when he entered the race.
Yeah. Didn't think so.
My point is “swift boating” is telling the truth...not lies like the MSM makes it out to be....btw... was heavily involved with the swifties, although a pilot in Vietnam and not a boat boy, in their successful campaign to bring the light of day to skerry and his bull shitte stories.
