Rick Perry has NOTHING to do with Texas' Economy!

This is purely the one of the basic Propaganda Techniques: If crime rates go down. then it is because of the Mayor in Office -- when in fact the Mayor did nothing to curb crime rates.

In Texas, we are just NOW becoming a more affluent State. Our growing affluence has been growing for the past couple decades -- It has nothing to do with Policies or who is in Charge.

To say that Perry has presided over a growing Texas Economy is absurd. The fact is that Home Construction has Increased (and that is because a $200,000 home in Texas is worth $700,000 in California). WE have huge houses that are very cheap! We have Increased our Medical Research industries, we have increased our Technological Industries.

Point is: More and MORE people are getting out of Horses and Agriculture in Texas and moving into a MORE AFFLUENT Industries.

For Perry (who is HATED in Texas) to claim that HE is responsible for a lower hit economy or for Job Growth is nothing but Propaganda.

The ONLY Reason for Texas to have suffered less than other States is because our Growing Affluence that started WAY before Perry was in Office.

My God's not dead; he's surely alive. And he's living on the inside roaring like a lion.

The MSM Has Repeated...

Over and over that Perry is a jobs creator, hence the post.

Regarding Palin: I believe we are watching in real time the rise of the third party, which will be controlled by the powers that be from its' inception.

Next Scam: "Cash For Cash"


Yeah I know...

And my comment was kinda arguing a different point than what your post intended.

But that was just because I get tired of the way the MSM and Perry try to validate his legitimacy.

I agree, Texas' unemployment is up and was (I think) as high as 8.5% not too long ago. But Perry and the MSM spin it by saying that Perry created Jobs.

He didn't. And if fact he even increased the Tax burden on businesses.

Mind you, we had Ann Richards (D) as Governor. Richards instituted the Franchise Tax: which is a business Tax on all business that is paid to the State. Ricky Perry (R) INCREASED the Democrat instituted Franchise Tax.

Texas increased Jobs because of our Growing affluence. Not because of Perry.

My God's not dead; he's surely alive. And he's living on the inside roaring like a lion.

Good one. Let the truth on

Good one. Let the truth on Perry come out...
