25 reasons not to vote for Rick Perry

27 Reasons To Not Vote For Rick Perry
#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 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.



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


#6 In 1984, Perry was elected to the Texas House of Representatives as a Democrat from a district (64) that included his home county of Haskell.


#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….
* 36th in the nation in high school graduation rates. An estimated 3.8 million Texans do not have a high school diploma.
* 49th in verbal SAT scores, 47th in literacy and 46th in average math SAT scores.
* 33rd in the nation on teacher salaries.



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


#11 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.


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


#13 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.”


#14 In 2008, Rick Perry stood beside Child Protective Services in Constitutional violation during the invasion and mass kidnapping of 464 FLDS children from their community in Eldorado, Texas. Perry spokeswoman Krista Piferrer said the governor retained full confidence in the agency, noting that “The governor is very proud of the work being done by CPS…CPS has handled a very complex situation both professionally and compassionately.” The 3rd Court of Appeals in Austin ruled that Texas child welfare authorities acted improperly and the children were returned to their parents. The governor ended up squandering 12.4 million of public money on the operation.


#15 Perry supported and still supports Open Borders with Mexico

#16 In 2001 Rick Perry signed the Dream Act into law allowing illegal immigrants in-state tuition. This is the blueprint for Obama’s own similar Federal Dream Act.


#17 In 2004, Perry allowed the execution of an innocent man, Cameron Willingham, and then impeded an investigation into the whole matter, including firing and replacing three members of the Texas Forensic Science Commission.


#18 Perry has called the 16th and 17th Amendments to the Constitution ” mistaken “. The 16th Amendment is the income tax amendment accounting for 45 % of all tax receipts. The 17th Amendment allows for direct election of U.S Senators, taking that right away from government.


#19 Texas is the leading polluter among states in the union, leading the nation on carbon dioxide emissions, but when the state was sued by the EPA for not meeting clean air standards, Perry sued the federal government. He also is a global warming critic who called the 2010 BP oil spill an ” act of God .”


#20 One in four children in Texas live below the poverty line. Perry cut $ 10 billion out of child support services even though Texas has a $ 8.2 Billion rainy day fund.


#21 Perry said that Texas might have to secede from the Union


#22 Perry calls himself a “Prophet”.


#23 Rick Perry has had a questionable past when it comes to Social Issues. Recently in 2008, he endorsed Rudy Giuliani for President, causing Mike Huckabee to respond with the following in an email on 7-21-11: “For all his new found commitment to hyper-conservatism, he’ll get to explain why he supported pro-abortion, pro-same sex marriage Rudy Guiliani last time.”


#24 Rick Perry recently stated that he supported New York’s Gay Marriage law by stating, “That’s New York, and that’s their business, and that’s fine with me”.


#25 Rick Perry took office in 2000 with 4.4% unemployment and ballooned it a whopping 4% to 8.2%.

I like the seceding from the Union, though, in #21. I doubt he'd do it though, just as he caved on that TSA thing recently. You need to add the TSA thingy to your list.

Perry is announcing his intention to run on Saturday. Time to duck and cover.

Bob Dole isn't a big Perry fan, but one might want to consider the roughly 1,000,000 illegal residents of the state when reading some of this.

And it's not just spending. It impacts education, poverty and wages stats, as well. #11 even points out the "devastating" effect in the southwest, but seems to ignore that Texas has the 2nd highest illegal population after CA (and is usually considered part of the "southwest").

What's your point here, Bob Dole? What do you expect Perry to do about illegals entering the state of Texas?

There is one reason to vote for Perry that outweighs what is listed above, whether the above list is true or not....Perry is not Obama, and he could not do any worse.

I want something better than that for a standard. That's just me though.

The proof provided in some of these examples really are bulletproof to questions of accuracy.

These two don't seem to go together. So he is a heartless bastage that won't help the children but he is a out of touch spend spend spend guy too?
