Gov. Perry’s Strong Statements About Obama’s Socialism

It is becoming more than apparent that our leaders and people in the spotlight are starting to take the peoples’ fear of the Obama administration to heart and are starting to stand up and push back.  (See Lou Dobbs)

“This is an administration hell-bent on taking America towards a socialist country.” Governor Perry

Governor Rick Perry spoke in Midland, Texas on Wednesday and made some pretty forthright comments about the administration in D.C. starting with “This administration, I think this administration; its past ‘doesn’t care’ about Texas.  I think this administration is interested in punishing us”, in reference to the  Alien Transfer and Exit Program and what it means for Presidio, Texas.

Perry says Obama taking U.S. toward socialism

The first part of Perry’s remarks focused on what’s called the Alien Transfer and Exit Program, something that he has been talking about for more than a week. Perry describes it as a plan where illegal immigrants who are captured in Arizona are sent to the small Texas town of Presidio and set free. It’s a sign that the Obama administration is trying to punish Texas, Perry said, adding that members of the state’s congressional delegation, as well as his office, weren’t given any warning of the administration’s plans for Presidio.

A few more money quotes from the Governor:

I think it’s time for us to stand up.  I think it’s time to make tea parties twice as big as what they were.  I think one of our greatest challenges and our greatest works in front of us right now, is to stop this administration in Washington using whatever tools we have at our disposal, whether it’s the courts, or whether its the bully pulpit of the Lt. Governor and Governors’ offices…

  • There are a few things Perry has been involved with here in Texas that I don’t particularly care for. But, he is head and shoulders above Kay Bailey Hutchinson when it comes to sticking to conservative principles. I consider KBH to be a RINO and we definitely do not need more of Washington here in Texas. He is a big believer in States’ rights and has been a big supporter of the Tea Party efforts here in this state.

    I hope he continues to take it to this socialist administration.

  • Dug – I know you are being diplomatic but I want details on the stuff you don’t agree with. We need the whole picture. Mahalo!

  • Diamond… I think the biggest thing was the Trans-Texas Corridor. There have been other smaller things, but they pale in comparison and are usually brought up by people who are trying nit-pick Perry. Here is a summary of the Trans-Texas Corridor:

    Where this ran afoul was in three major areas: eminent domain, impact on farming/ranching, and potential for transporting illegals deep into the country.

    Eminent Domain

    Texans are fiercely independent and land is almost sacred here. You do NOT do anything that would infringe on people’s property rights… unless you want to be on the receiving-end of a shotgun.

    Impact on Farming/Ranching

    The corridor would have split the state with very few passageways across the corridor. Farmers and ranchers often have to move equipment, irrigation pipes, livestock, etc. across huge pieces of acreage that would have been split by the corridor. It would have made their operations much more expensive.

    Transporting Illegals

    The corridor would have run from the Mexico border north parallel to I-35, with possible branches in other parts of the state. The corridor was supposed to provide an “expressway” for imported goods from south of the border and from coastal seaports. But, the downside was that it would wind up being a target for illegals and terrorists to try and smuggle people and/or harmful devices deep into the country before they could be detected.

    Personally, I think Perry was ill-advised by many in TxDOT and other state agencies. I think they need to clean house in those agencies. I think from Perry’s perspective, the emphasis was always to try and promote trade and to use the corridor for other infrastructure (communications, electrical grid, etc.). Perry has done a lot to build the state’s ability to have a desirable business environment, through low taxes, tort reform, and promotion of trade. However, TxDOT’s and other agency planning and proposals were fraught with unintended consequences (as noted above). It was truly a boondoggle.

    Even though, it is essentially dead at this point, there are still a lot of hard feelings with some within the state. On balance, though… when I compare Perry’s record with that of KBH in Congress or the Dems here… there is just no comparison. I’ll take Perry with the warts over someone who is going to be constantly capitulating to Washington.

    BTW… we have many Dems now switching parties to Repubs here within the state, because they are so appalled by what they are seeing in the Dem party nationally. I have had it with both parties. But, with just a few exception areas within the state, if you are going to make it in politics in this state (locally, state, or nationally), you have to have conservative credentials. The next couple of years are going to be very interesting on all levels.

    DT, here are some facts on the two
    > RICK PERRY AND KAY BAILEY HUTCHISONPosted by Tracy Forester on October 2, 2009
    at 11:15pm in Texas Moms
    > Rick Perry’s record:
    > · Toll Roads and Trans Texas Corridor – Is it socialism, fascism or communism? (2003)
    > · Business Margins Tax – backdoor state income tax (2006)
    > · HPV vaccine mandate – Attack on parental rights (2007)
    > · FLDS El Dorado raid – Religious Oppression, traumatizes 438 children and their parents; out of control Child Protective Services raid based on crank phone call (2008)
    > · Defeats Steven Wayne Smith – makes robo phone calls against most conservative Supreme Court judge in modern Texas history (2004)
    > · Vetoes Texas Eminent Domain Bill – taking your land for a toll road more important than signing property rights protection overwhelmingly passed by Legislature. (2007)
    > · Signs Hate Crimes bill — Attack on free speech and creates thought crimes, includes sexual orientation as a class! (2001)
    > · Globalist bootlicker – for United Nations, NAFTA, CAFTA, Trans Texas
    Corridor, Bilderberger toady.
    > · Governor for NINE years, then reads about the 10th Amendment a few weeks ago. (2009)
    > · Supports No Child Left Behind Act and Dept. of Education (Hey, is the federal government running your local school in the Constitution? Fine with Rick Perry.)
    > · Endorsers liberal cross dresser and gun grabber Rudy Guiliani for President (2008) – tells his good friend Mike Huckabee I love you like a brother, but you can’t win so I am going with gun grabber Rudy Julie Annie, he’s a sure thing!
    The Bilderbergers said I can be VP if I grovel enough and am for toll roads,
    globalism, open borders, big government and, of course, the Federal Reserve.
    > · Token opposition to illegal immigration – probably because the illegals will
    be building all his toll roads! Opposes wall on Mexican border.
    > · Does not stand up for elected State Board of Education every time it gets castrated by the liberals in the legislature (2000s). Throws crumbs to conservatives on SBOE, but when they really need him, hides under desk, sticks
    fingers in ears. (2009)
    > · Instituted state CHIP program!, a widely abused program and one more step to
    socialized medicine, more taxes and rationed healthcare. (Hey, is CHIP in the 10th Amendment?)
    > · Supports Sobriety Check Points! Unconstitutional trashing of YOUR 4th Amendment rights where everyone is pulled over with no probable cause and no
    reasonable suspicion. (Perry supported SB 298 bill) 2009
    > · Texas Enterprise Fund – basically, Rick Perry’s slush fund for politically connected insiders, another WASTE of your tax dollars. Big Government + Big Business = Fascism.
    > · Supports whopping $3 Billion Cancer BOND, the Lance Armstrong cancer tax – more taxing, borrowing and spending. (2007).
    > · Tries to intimidate FEMALE state trooper who pulls him over for speeding
    while he was lieutenant governor, telling her “Why don’t you just let us get on down the road?” as she was writing him a ticket.
    > · Tells a Houston tv reporter Ted Oberg “Adios, mofo.” (2005) I’ve got a feeling who the voters are going to be saying “Adios” to in 2010 in the GOP primary
    > • Supports Sobriety Check Points! Unconstitutional trashing of YOUR 4th Amendment rights where everyone is pulled over with no probable cause and no reasonable suspicion. (Perry supported SB 298 bill) 2009
    > Kay Bailey Hutchinson’s record:
    > Whether it’s for Governor or Senator, Kay Bailey Hutchison will not get my vote. There are many reasons, but here are eight specific ones:
    > 1 – She voted for the $700B Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) last September. That is enough all by itself.
    > 2- She has three indictments! Check it out! Main Stream Media won’t be doing any “reporting” on that one!
    > 3 – She voted to give $16B in taxpayer money to the government railroad Amtrak. Amtrak should break even or shut down.
    > 4 – She continually votes to fund war in Iraq, but she can’t seem to get the Texas border protected.
    > 5 – She voted to fund so-called “Volunteerism” programs in the US, including AmeriCorps. As an aside, is it really volunteerism if you are being paid?
    > 6 – She voted to expand the Social Security Act and increase the scope of the Childrens Health Insurance (CHIP) program.
    > 7 – She voted for the federal government to conduct and support research that utilizes human embryonic stem cells. Set aside for a moment the moral questions and ask yourself why the federal government needs to fund this regardless of the moral issues. Citizens that want to do this can do so legally through charitable foundations like so many other types of medical research without forcing citizens with moral opposition or other priorities, like educating their
    children, to contribute as well.
    > 8 – She voted to extend selected agricultural assistance programs and provide funding for the purchase of certain foods for domestic nutrition programs (agriculture subsidies).
    > 9 – She voted for s.896 to help families “save their homes” by changing their mortgages to FHA loans. This helps re-inflate the housing bubble and prevents foreclosures that should happen. Even if you want to help these homeowners (and you can volunteer to do so without forcing the rest of us to help), at least recognize that this money is going to mortgage holders, not to the homeowners. If the houses are foreclosed on, they’ll be resold to other homeowners that have been more financially responsible and are more deserving, at market prices. There will be just as many homeowners either way. The expenses of the unwise
    home buyer should not be born by the financially judicious and responsible. The renter should not pay, through higher taxes and devalued dollar, for the irresponsible home buyer while simultaneously and artificially raising the price
    of a house they might choose to buy.
    > Each and every one of these votes either 1) fails to protect the rights guaranteed by the US Constitution or 2) takes property from one citizen by force via income taxes in order to give it to someone else…or both. Each of these
    votes is a vote to spend money the nation does not have and will be borrowed from entities such as the Chinese government.

  • Just some clarifying comments:

    The original vision for TTC was Perry’s. However, the Texas Transportation Commission and TxDOT really stepped in it when they proposed this behemoth instead of having smaller projects. These agencies should have counseled Perry to take a different approach.
    I have seen how TxDOT manages projects and their priorities here around our town… it is sometimes hard to understand.

    Because Perry is the highest and most visible person associated with TTC activities, he understandably has taken most of the arrows on it. It’s unfortunate that, for some, it has overshadowed the other good things he has accomplished for the state.

  • Diamond… I have to admit, this is the first I have heard of her as a candidate. I keep up with many of the news sources in the state and this just shows how much of a media blackout there is on her. All you hear about is the dustup between Perry and KBH.

    What is particularly interesting to me is… she is an alum of LeTourneau University, which is where I received my MBA. The main campus is here where I live and I have not seen anything in any of the alum news on this.

    She looks like a very compelling candidate. But, based on her bio, she apparently has not endeared herself to the Republican establishment here in the state… which is probably a plus in this day and age. Will have to follow this more closely as we get into primaries.

    someone with a spine and fangs!

    WELCOME to the NEW REPUBLIC OF TEXAS, you think,

    lets give him any support he needs to show DICTATOR the “fi_____. DOOR!

  • letty aka granny gripes -

    WE ALL KNOW: KBH was ga ga AL GORE global warming!

    that would be a scratch for me!

    WIKIPEDIA is so bogus, it gets hacked and changed all of the time, so little is valid there anymore!

  • letty aka granny gripes -

    YOU need to google KBH and climate change and or Global warming!

  • letty aka granny gripes -

    Might have to retract my comments about KBH being ga ga
    over global warming, Maybe I got her confused with DOLE

    I just remember a few years ago dropping my jaws about thought it was she agreeing with the global warmiing hoax,
    quick research shows all recent anti Cap N Tax !

    so here I am with egg on my face

    SRY, so I retract my comments

  • letty aka granny gripes -

    Perhaps it was this that made me gag ?

    Big Government

    Christians believe God can calm the seas, and Greeks believed Zeus controlled the weather and showered down thunder and lightning in anger. Apparently, now Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas seems to think she too can control the winds and the rains by earmarking over a hundred million of your tax dollars to dubious research at universities in her state, even though the idea was long abandoned by government scientists.

    Senator Hutchison, recently named “Porker of the Month”, says she wants to earmark $125 million during this recession to, in her words, force “Mother Nature” to “alter her course.” As Al Gore and President Obama have failed in their quest to control the oceans, Senator Hutchison thinks she can finally get Mother Nature to listen to politicians. Good luck!

    Unfortunately for taxpayers, Senator Hutchison has refused to listen to our nation’s top scientists on this issue. As reported by the Washington Post, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has officially rebuffed this idea. In a letter, NOAA bluntly explained that the government ended this futile research years ago and there is nothing new to indicate it will ever be successful:

  • I do not live in Texas but it looks like to me that Debra Medina needs help in getting some exposure.

    I am sure that Glenn Becks researchers stop by your site often, maybe they will bring her to Glenn’s attention.

    All who are running have to be heard and seen or there will be no real changes in the future. Perry is sounding like he is on the side of the folks as he wants to win, just another politician. I am so tired of having to chose between the lesser of two evils.
