Rick Perry – The Right Man for the Job


Every election cycle people ask me who I support for for various positions. I haven’t decidided on many of the offices yet but one Gov has one clear choice: Rick Perry. I have met him several times and while we don’t agree on everything one thing is for sure: he is Pro-Life and Pro Homeschooling and Pro Technology. Unlike the pretend republicans (cough Key Bailout Hutchison cough) running against him.

Perry is one of the few conservatives who “gets” Twitter. He doesn’t just outsource it to young staffers. He uses it well and other technologies too. If we want to continue to thrive as a state we need leaders who are forward thinking without compromising their principles. I am thankful to have a governor with such a rare and special mix.

Perry is not a perfect candidate but he is by far the best pick. The perfect candidate does not exist so if you hold off for perfection you will never accomplish anything.

Kay Bailout Hutchison

Kay Bailout is a Pro-Choice and Big Government Rino (Republican in Name Only).

Debra Medina is another conservative running but she lacks the experience to do a good job. You must be faithful in little before you can be given more and she has yet to serve even as a State Representative. Perry has the experience and is clearly the best person for the job.

I would like to ask you to support Perry. I’m not just asking for your vote. I’m asking you for $5. Below is a form where you can contribute to his campaign. If I raise the most money I get to have lunch with him which would be cool. But raising money for him is a win for Texas even if I don’t win this competition.

Most of you have probably never contributed to a campaign before. This is a great time to start. $5 is not a lot of money but it can add up when we all pitch in.

  1. Rick Perry lost my vote when he

    A) Tried to force an untested vaccine on my daughters without even the slightest concern for going through proper channels. The line "If we can save even 1 life it'll be worth it" is a load of crap. If he's concerned about saving young lives, why doesn't my daughter's school bus have seat belts on it?

    B) Pushed and prodded the federal government for bail out money. Our economy is in the tank specifically BECAUSE of our over spending and debt. What we've done with the bail out is postpone the inevitable, and have probably made thing worse when it does finally go south than it otherwise would have been.

    I disagree with your premise that Debra Medina can't do the job because of a lack of experience. Ronald Reagan had no political experience before he ran for Governor's office of California. In fact, if you'll look at his activities in government leading up to the time he took office, they look very similar to those of Debra Medina.

    Medina started her run for office in Feb 2009. By Sept, she was nabbing 3% of the votes in polls. 2 months later (just yesterday) she was at 7%. Her message is spreading. People are tired of politics as usual. Neither Perry nor Hutchison are true conservatives. We conservatives need someone who speaks for us. I believe Debra Medina is that person.
