Fellow Texans, I will shut up, but first read this and tell me why you agree with Rick Perry.

I read the entire article of “Why” Rick Perry is running for President, and right off the bat I could see that Perry “learned in (his) 20’s traveling the globe as an Air Force pilot that we (Americans) are the most exceptional nation on the face of the earth.”  But if he was so perceptive, then why was he a socialist Democrat until he was 38 years old? Do you really buy that sophistry? When you were 20 were you a socialist?

I’ll shut up as soon as you answer the question why Perry was a Democrat and then a Democrat politician, and then a state-wide Democrat politician, and then campaign manager for Al Gore (at 37 years old), and then became a Republican at age 38? Have you bumped your head? He changed parties at 38 to win elections (not because he suddenly became rational).

Okay, so you think he somehow changed, well then how do you explain that AFTER his epiphany he stumped for the Texas Dream Act? I will tell you why! He used your money in order to win Hispanic votes (and retain his power). So you say he did this to win the election. Yes, and exactly my point. He used your money to essentially buy votes for his election and retention of power.

“Perry signed a Texas version of the DREAM Act back in 2001, allowing foreign-born children of illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition for college if they have lived in the state for three years prior to graduating high school. He explained, “We must say to every Texas child learning in a Texas classroom, ‘We don’t care where you come from, but where you are going, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get there.’ And that vision must include the children of undocumented workers.” Of course he is not paying for this largess, you are!

Is it fair to give the financial break to illegal immigrants, and then make U.S. citizens who are non-Texas residents pay more to attend college in Texas?

State legislators have filed at least four bills to repeal the measure, which grants lower, in-state tuition to the children of immigrants who have lived in Texas at least three years, have graduated from a Texas high school and plan to become citizens.

Okay, so everyone makes mistakes, but Rick didn’t make a mistake. “Rick Perry said he will oppose efforts to repeal a law, which he signed six years ago, giving tuition breaks to undocumented immigrants attending state universities.”  “I’m for leaving the law like it is because I think it serves a good purpose,’’ (yes, delivering him 39% of the Hispanic vote with your money).

Under the Texas Dream Act, Illegal alien students do not have to actually apply for citizenship, they only have to promise that they will some day! Yes, let’s just have all the children of the world come to Texas for college (but charge Americans from other states who want to do the same extra)! Let the Texans pay for it, they don’t mind. That way Perry will remain in power and all the people of the world will love Texas. Hey, sounds a lot like the President already!

His support of the Texas Dream Act was really a swift political move and Governor Brown signed the same law here in Cali! Hey!  I understand! You want your own Texas version of “moon-beam!”

Sorry fellows, but it gets worse: Perry wrote a letter to the editor of the Dallas Morning News, “I take strong issue with a news report in the Dallas Morning News mischaracterizing my position on amnesty for undocumented immigrants from Mexico. The truth is, I am intrigued and open to the Bush administration’s amnesty proposal. Most Texans would agree that it’s better to have legal, taxpaying immigrants from Mexico working in the United States than illegal immigrants living in fear of the law and afraid to access basic services.”

When Arizona enacted its controversial statute, he explicitly rejected that approach for Texas: “Recently, there has been much debate over immigration policy in Washington and what has been implemented in Arizona. I fully recognize and support a state’s right and obligation to protect its citizens, but I have concerns with portions of the law passed in Arizona and believe it would not be the right direction for Texas.

Seriously, are you kidding me? This is the politician you want to run our country?

I understand full well that he was the best man running for Texas governor at the time, and I would have voted for him too, but he is NOT the best man running for President (at least not right now). If he does win the nomination then he will again be the best man in the race and I will support him; however, he is NOT the best man for our country and that is what we need. We need a person with convictions not expediencies.

“Dude”, this guy is just a politician and he has no loyalty except to himself. When he goes to Washington he will become a Belt-way politician.

So, tell me again why he was a Democrat until age 38 and is now a Republican?
