I love my state (Washington) but hate the politics destroying everything. I do wish we could transfer Texas policies here so I could continue to enjoy my environment... Texas is too warm for my tastes but eventually may have to sacrifice the way we’re going.
What’s the common refrain these days? “Let it Burn?” That’s my attitude right now. Politically anyway. Few stand for anything anymore and I have no hope it will recover. I would like to thank the good people like the fair Michelle Malkin and Palin surrogates for ripping Perry over a few debates. Such good conservative warriors. This country would certainly have come to an end sooner if someone of Perry’s backbone had won the presidency. and oh so glad his stance on illegals was denied fruition. That issue was certainly worth derailing every other good he offered. Not like anyone in the GOP is leading the charge to bring about a worse solution :::coughing Jeb Bush’s puppet Rubio::::
Thank you for your input.
Perry was governor when all but 4 Texas legislators voted to allow children of illegals to attend college with the same tuition rate as citizen children. IF they had attended HS three years and graduated, which by law they had to be allowed to do (a federal law) and met other requirements. He agreed with that POV, but it’s false that this was Rick Perry’s thing. It was the thing of the Texas legislature, which was controlled by Republicans.
In fact Perry has fought the Feds many years over BORDER INSECURITY. In fact Texas has used many millions of its own resources to help provide the people on our side of the border with as much security as we can muster given that the Feds policies have and are ruining our security.
But I didn’t post this thread about Perry and his “stance on illegals”, as you know.
I’m simply letting people know that Perry spoke in Washington to Texans, and he was protested by an organized re-creation of ACORN - some Texans, some not - and he said TX would not expand Medicaid under Obamacare just as it would not create a “state exchange” under Obamacare.
Previously lauded GOP governors are caving.
It makes me sick.
Perry is different. That’s all I want show.
