Do you just throw everything you can against the wall?
When Texas's anti-sodomy law was struck down in 2003 by the Supreme Court Rick Perry called Court decision the result of nine oligarchs in robes."
Republican presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry has signed a pledge from the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) pledging to oppose same-sex marriage and advance a constitutional marriage amendment.
It aint none of his business if each local/state wants its own marriage laws. Problem is..those marriages would have to be recognized in the other states. THAT IS where this is going. They want those marriages to be recognized in all states! If that happens, and they pass ANYTHING to advance this social debacle, then all the states MUST recognize gun laws also. No?
DO NOT wish for something you might regret later. This could open a whole can of worms none of us want.
If Perry, and believe me, I like him, sticks his nose into this, he will get burned. Better for him to say that it is a local issue and that only.
Why is it people want the holy federal government running every part of their lives?
Good quote, but as usual the problem with Perry is the gulf between what he says and what he does.
He says he is tall and strong on border issues. Bull hockey, and posters to FR have proved it.
He says he is foursquare for the family. Oh, really?
The basic problem with Rick Perry as a popular choice for conservatives is that he's working for someone else: a very short list of someone else. He is an unflawed, unexcelled example of access-capitalist, Pigs at the Trough Republicanism as opposed to Main Street Republicanism:
If Perry were a solid MOR centrist RiNOsceroid Republican but did what he said he was going to do, he would be a better candidate than what he is: A candidate who performs for a small "audience" of multimillionaires exclusively, to transact their agenda in return for campaign money, while hiding behind fig leaves of policy statements and articulating high principles that have nothing to do with his real reasons for supporting this or that real measure, law, or program.
