    From what I know about Perry, I like him, but a liberal relative of mine in Texas told me that he appoints his cronies to government positions. Is that correct.

    I could live with Perry as a VP candidate maybe

    But he supports the DREAM Act. As an Arizonan, I have had enough of that crap. Go Bachmann.

    Good grief! Tell your buddy he'll have to do better than that.
    The next election's candidates will be researched by the voters, probably more so than any in history, for obvious reasons. Rick has no problems, and no skeletons to hide. Been here in Texas all my life, and I would be aware of any issues. He's smart, tough, and loyal, and his family is a good Christian family. One thing is for sure, when the chips are down, you want him on your side. AND HE WILL NEVER EMBARRASS OR APOLOGISE FOR OUR COUNTRY! If the riots do start, he'll finish 'em, one way or another. Not a fan of the criminal element. A veteran, he loves and has great respect for our military. Worried about the 2nd amendment?.......don't. Only bad part of this deal is that we'll lose the best Governor in the country.
    He can handle anything the libs throw at him. I've seen him work, and I'm finally excited about a candidate.

    Now, that's my little "campaign post" of the year. Won't do it again. Probably not.

    14 Reasons Why Rick Perry Would Be A Really, Really Bad President
    #1 Rick Perry is a "big government" politician. When Rick Perry became the governor of Texas in 2000, the total spending by the Texas state government was approximately $49 billion. Ten years later it was approximately $90 billion. That is not exactly reducing the size of government.

    #2 The debt of the state of Texas is out of control. According to usdebtclock.org, the debt to GDP ratio in Texas is 22.9% and the debt per citizen is $10,645. In California (a total financial basket case), the debt to GDP ratio is just 18.7% and the debt per citizen is only $9932. If Rick Perry runs for president these are numbers he will want to keep well hidden.

    #3 The total debt of the Texas government has more than doubled since Rick Perry became governor. So what would the U.S. national debt look like after four (or eight) years of Rick Perry?

    #4 Rick Perry has spearheaded the effort to lease roads in Texas to foreign companies, to turn roads that are already free to drive on into toll roads, and to develop the Trans-Texas Corridor which would be part of the planned NAFTA superhighway system. If you really do deep research on this whole Trans-Texas Corridor nonsense you will see why no American should ever cast a single vote for Rick Perry.

    #5 Rick Perry claims that he has a "track record" of not raising taxes. That is a false claim. Rick Perry has repeatedly raised taxes and fees while he has been governor. Today, Texans are faced with significantly higher taxes and fees than they were before Rick Perry was elected.

    #6 Even with the oil boom in Texas, 23 states have a lower unemployment rate than Texas does.

    #7 Back in 1988, Rick Perry supported Al Gore for president. In fact, Rick Perry actually served as Al Gore's campaign chairman in the state of Texas that year.

    #8 Between December 2007 and April 2011, weekly wages in the U.S. increased by about 5 percent. In the state of Texas they increased by just 0.6% over that same time period.

    #9 Texas now has one of the worst education systems in the nation. The following is from an opinion piece that was actually authored by Barbara Bush earlier this year....

     We rank 36th in the nation in high school graduation rates. An estimated 3.8 million Texans do not have a high school diploma.

     We rank 49th in verbal SAT scores, 47th in literacy and 46th in average math SAT scores.

     We rank 33rd in the nation on teacher salaries.

    #10 Rick Perry attended the Bilderberg Group meetings in 2007. Associating himself with that organization should be a red flag for all American voters.

    #11 Texas has the highest percentage of workers making minimum wage out of all 50 states.

    #12 Rick Perry often gives speeches about illegal immigration, but when you look at the facts, he has been incredibly soft on the issue. If Rick Perry does not plan to secure the border, then he should not be president because illegal immigration is absolutely devastating many areas of the southwest United States.

    #13 In 2007, 221,000 residents of Texas were making minimum wage or less. By 2010, that number had risen to 550,000.

    #14 Rick Perry actually issued an executive order in 2007 that would have forced almost every single girl in the state of Texas to receive the Gardasil vaccine before entering the sixth grade. Perry would have put parents in a position where they would have had to fill out an application and beg the government not to inject their child with a highly controversial vaccine. Since then, very serious safety issues regarding this vaccine have come to light. Fortunately, lawmakers in Texas blocked what Perry was trying to do. According to Wikipedia, many were troubled when "apparent financial connections between Merck and Perry were reported by news outlets, such as a $6,000 campaign contribution and Merck's hiring of former Perry Chief of Staff Mike Toomey to handle its Texas lobbying work."

    Rick Perry has a record that should make all Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Independents cringe.
