It’s nice to see a Perry thread that doesn’t start out attacking another candidate. Maybe they’re learning.

Steve Forbes is a Wall Street Republican. I respect him (as I do Perry) on general fiscal responsibility issues. But fiscal responsibility ends when they want to throw open the borders and so does my support.

Their views on open borders are as naive and dangerous as Ron Paul's views on national security.

Yes, I beliecve Steve Forbes also endorsed man by the name of Perot a few years back as a spoiler against Pat Buchanan? Perot was a loser, too. I guess with Herman Cain doing as well as he has they decided to dust off ole Steve again.

Interesting factoid:

Herman Cain was Co-Chairman of the Steve Forbes for President Campaign in 2000.

That’s a reasonable response VM. I don’t care much for endorsements but I know some do. One could make the argument that because Whoraldo also endorsed Perry that means Perry appeals to pro-ILLEGAL alien liberals. But I realize Whoraldo is just a man as is Forbes.

Perry has never espoused an open border. There’s a big difference between being against building a fence down the Rio Grande and advocating an open border? Why don’t you take your beef to the Feds who are in charge of protecting the border. It’s not Perry’s job. It’s not the duty of Texas taxpayers to fund it either. Do you only blame Perry or do you include the other border governors?

Steve Forbes wrote Perry's belated tax plan, so his endorsing Perry is kind of like intellectual masturbation.

I expect that Perry's speechwriter has endorsed Perry also.

It’s not the duty of Texas taxpayers to pay for the education of illegal aliens K-12, either...but we have to...and in their native language! It costs a lot more than instate tuition!

Is that Rick Perry's fault, too?

Well I'm glad Governor Perry had the insight to draw from the wealth of knowledge and experience of Steve Forbes this time around.

How can illegal aliens be Texas residents? In-state tuition is for legal state residents, not people here illegally from Mexico, Guatemala, Senegal or Colombia.

California has been AWOL on border issues as well. So has New Mexico until the recent change in administration. Arizona, OTOH, has taken some leadership in the area without making the excuses which you just made for Perry.

BTW, it is not the duty of the taxpayers in the 46 states which do not share a border with Mexico to shed congressional seats to border states which have inflated their population with illegal aliens, nor is it our duty to subsidize all the social services which illegal aliens demand, but nobody asks us. They just take our money and our congressional representation without asking.

“Yes, I beliecve Steve Forbes also endorsed man by the name of Perot a few years back as a spoiler against Pat Buchanan”

You need to get your facts straight:

1. I know of no time in the past where Steve Forbes ever endorsed Ross Perot.

2. I know of no presidential election where Ross Perot ran against Pat Buchanan.

Perot ran in the 1992 general election, after Buchanan had already been defeated in the primary, and again in 1996 in the general, again after Buchanan had been defeated in the primary. In neither race did Mr Forbes endorse Ross Perot. Please provide sources.

Tax reform is needed. Perry’s flat tax proposal would be better then the fair tax. The fair tax opens the door for it morphing into a VAT, a value added tax. No thanks.

More important then tax reform, is spending reform.

Steve Forbes, Ross Perot, Pat Buchanan, Herman Cain, Rick Perry.

Question: Which of those five men have won an election?

Bonus Question: Which one of those men was Co-Chairman of the Steve Forbes for President Campaign in 2000?

” They pay in-state tuition rates.”

” They “ being the kids of illegals who were brought here as children.
Not the adults.
Also “ Pay “ is the operative word.
Unlike K-12 where all taxpayers provide education
for every child-legal or not.
Then you’re talking about some serious taxpayer money.
And not just Texas , but, every state.
Parade Magazine featured Perry today.

Well, this old lady worked very hard for Pat Buchanan. But I have worked very hard for many presidential campaigns beginning with Eisenhower’s. Sometimes things get a little confused, so if i remember incorrectly, please forgive me. But someone backed Perot and Perot was a spoiler, like Freddie Dalton Thompson was a spoiler in 2007 until he dropped out three days after Duncan Hunter threw in the towel.

Some like to hi-jack threads which moves the discussion from the important facts or exciting information of a particular thread to side shows and vendettas.

Anyone who is serious about a pro-growth future for our country and a serious tax reform debate, whether it is flat tax, fair tax, or something like a hybrid 999/909 plan, should simply take a mental note of the tactics of those who turn serious conversations into circuses, be thankful we have several conservative candidates with true messages of conservatism to share, and then just keep on moving forward with peace that you are on the right side.

Thanks to all who honestly and enthusiastically contribute to the conservative reforms our party is going to make with a conservative candidate that will be Obama in 2012!

“But someone backed Perot and Perot was a spoiler”

Perot was definitely a spoiler for Bush 41 in 1992, but I can’t think of any prominent conservatives that backed him. I think there may have been some that were flirting with the idea, till Perot dropped out in July 1992 citing paranoia over his family’s safety, then got back in the race in Sept or October (can’t remember which). By that time, everyone realized the buy was a kook and stayed far away from him. He still ended pulling about 20% of the popular vote in that election.

In 1996 I don’t think anyone of any note backed Perot. By then, his 15 minutes of fame were long past, but he decided to make another run just to be an irritant. I believe he got something like 10% in that race. I don’t think it was enough to make much of a difference in the outcome.

You think in-state tuition pays all the expenses of their college education? Then why do state schools cost less than private ones? Because state schools are subsidized. Also, the out-of-state students, legal American citizens, help pay the way for all those on paying in-state tuition.

Yes, I just posted in another thread, Cain used to support the Flat Tax, and Forbes ran on a Flat Tax ticket. When Fair Tax came out, Cain felt it was a better option and became a very outspoken proponent of Fair Tax.

Cain’s plan is a hybrid Flat tax and Fair tax which transitions to the Fair Tax.
