    The facts about Rick Perry and Texas:

    Consider the Texas that Perry holds up to the rest of the nation for admiration. It has the fourth-highest poverty rate of any state. It tied with Mississippi last year for the highest percentage of workers in minimum-wage jobs. It ranks first in adults without high school diplomas. Twenty-six percent of Texans have no health insurance — the highest percentage of medically uninsured residents of any state. It leads the nation in the percentage of children who lack medical insurance. Texas has an inordinate number of employers who provide no insurance to their workers, partly because insurance rates are high, thanks to an absence of regulations.

    Perry seems quite comfortable with the state’s lagging performance in what we might term the pursuit-of-happiness index. Consider his indifference toward education: In 2008, the state comptroller found that 12 percent of Texans lacked high school diplomas and that the level would rise to 30 percent by 2040 unless the state’s commitment to education was considerably increased. This year, though, when confronted with a $27 billion budget deficit, Perry did not raise taxes but instead slashed $4 billion from K-12 schools.

    No, I have read his political record and his limited acomplishments and he does not sound like a viable presidential candidate. More like a simple career politician that curries favor with his big donors and does big favors for them, including giving them state grants and special considerations for them to do business. That is what we have right now in DC, don't need another guy with the same mindset. Liberals are not afraid of him, we laugh at him as being a candidate. Seriously, look at his record! Only 4% of Texans said he should run for president. 4%!!!!

    I dont agree that we need Perry. I think hes just a bag of hot air. Just like Romney and Bachman and all the other candidates. Cain maybe not as much. The only one and I mean the ONLY one that isnt on either side is Ron Paul. If you ask if I agree we need Paul then yes.

    No, I don't. And I doubt very seriously if Liberals are afraid of Rick Perry.

    We don't want nor need a President who "talks to god". President Obama is Christian you don't see him blabbing religious propaganda. I understand that some people are devout Christians but when it comes to politics keep that crap out of it, if you're religion says that gay is not the way then fine don't be gay but do not make laws that take away the rights of other people to choose for themselves.

    Yes! We need Rick Perry --- to crawl back underneath the rock from which he came.

    Why doesn't this question of mine show up on the board? It appears to be posted, but it is not on the board. A little YA censorship perhaps?

    Should we sit Quietly While the Representatives of the Super-rich try to Raise Taxes on the Rest of us?

    Having slashed their own taxes to the bone while at the same time raping the global economy to the brink of collapse; and then looting the public till to the point of national bankruptcy; should we now allow our beloved billionaires to increase taxes on the poor to pay for their rapefests and lootfests?

    Obama’s bus tour—a right-wing political stunt

    http://wsws.org/articles/2011/aug2011/ob%E2%80%A6

    Excerpt:

    In response to a question on taxes, Obama declared himself in favor of an across-the-board restructuring that would “lower the overall rate, broaden the base.” This means cutting tax rates for the super-rich, while closing a few tax loopholes for specific industries and shifting much of the tax burden to working-class families whose incomes are so low that they currently pay no income tax.

    No I don't. We need Ron Paul. Not a neoconservative Bush 4.0 that attends annual bilderberg meetings.
