Rick Perry Takes Stand On Texas Secession Issue

Texas Gov. Rick Perry does not stand behind a secession petition filed with the White House by a Lone Star State resident in the aftermath of the presidential election.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the Republican governor's press secretary, Catherine Frazier, said in an email that Perry "believes in the greatness of our Union and nothing should be done to change it." She added, "But he also shares the frustrations many Americans have with our federal government. Now more than ever our country needs strong leadership from states like Texas, that are making tough decisions to live within their means, keep taxes low and provide opportunities to job creators so their citizens can provide for their families and prosper."

Several years ago, however, Perry declined to rule out the possibility that Texas could secede from the United States if significant changes weren't made to the nation's economic policies.

Rick Perry

Wears pink see through Victoria Secret panties with white frills on them. Statist pussbag.

"Rick Perry straddles the fence and beats his chest while wearing the new Roy Rogers cowboy outfit he got for Christmas."

The only "stand" he's going to take is whatever he's told to take. You don't make it to the position of Governor of a powerful oil rich state without TPTB knowing and helping (imho).

The one exception I can think of is Jesse Ventura, and he was supposedly called to the basement of the capitol to be questioned by the CIA after he was elected.

What Do You Expect From Rick 'Al Gore' Perry aka

Mr NAFTA Superhighway Bildeberger??? I didn't even know he was a former Demorcrat Al Gore supporter, and knew he was a fraud the first time I heard him speek when he took over as Gov. when Jorge Boosh was placed in office. The only reason Texas has a good economy is due to the enourmous Petro-Chemical Industry, it surely is from this Corporatists fraud has done.

The Bush prodigy has finally peeped!

Been wondering when we would hear from him... But I didn't consider the possibility that it would be typical GOP Hop Air!
Wasn't it the police under his jurisdiction that we had TSA style roadside cavity searches?! Following in the footsteps of his predecessor?
Four Texas Police Officers Charged with Escorting Loads of Narcotics for Pay
Texas Students Revolt Against Mandatory RFID Tracking Chips
TSA style “permanent” DWI checkpoints

Does he give Republicans a bad image or just living up to the standard?

The Feds will invade any state that pays any

serious lip service to this initiative. Traction will not be tolerated.

You all know that the "greatest president" that ever lived already settled state's rights? Digging up the corpse will not help.

I'm playing devil's advocate here. I really think the current administration had better take a serious reality check or Galt's Gulch will become an even further reality. No more Obama Claus!


What we need:

What we really need are 50 governors with some guts. If we didn't have a bunch of sissies for state governors, maybe something could actually be accomplished.
Where are the real men?

I love my country
I am appalled by my government

hahaha Parry is a joke

He is all bark no bite. This would make his china owned supper hwy a road to the boarder (can't have that).

Someone should start a petition on the same site

to remove Perry from office over his secession comments.

Just for kicks of course. We wouldn't really want to get rid of that lovable maverick would we? :)

Was Rick asked this question

as he was entering or as he was leaving the topless bar ?? Inquiring minds want to know ?

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Thought it was a gay bar

Topless wouldn't seem to matter in that case.
