Gov. Perry may lead Texas out of the Union

One of the more bizarre speculations about what Perry may be plotting comes from Raw Story. Apparently Perry is planning to create a Texas gold depository, much like Fort Knox, that could serve as the basis of currency for an independent Texas republic. Perry did joke about seceding from the Union in 2009 and a We the People petition expressed a certain amount of support for the idea. But Perry himself has never expressed a serious desire to become the president of an independent Republic of Texas.

not so slick rick

must be planning on running again in 2016...probably just to muddy th water and dilute the libertarian vote...

yes that is right..next election cycle all GOP candidates will be embracing libertarianism. Of course they won't really mean it...they just need to fool the sheeple one more time.

Ron Paul on how Rick perry has raised taxes and spenidng in

Texas. Q: [to Paul]: you’re from Texas. Does Gov. Perry deserve credit for Texas’ job creation?
PAUL: Not quite. I’m a taxpayer there. My taxes have gone up. Our taxes have doubled since he’s been in office. Our spending has gone up double. Our debt has gone up nearly triple. So, no. And 170,000 of the jobs were government jobs. [Perry claimed job growth due to tax cuts] but how do you pay for a tax cut? I think that’s the wrong principle, because when you give people their money back, it’s their money. You don’t have to pay for it. That means that the government owns all of our money if you look that way. So we have to cut the spending, and a good way to start, there’s a little embassy we built over in Baghdad that cost us a billion dollars. It’s bigger than the Vatican. That’s what’s bankrupting this country, and that’s the easy place to cut. That’s where we should be cutting. PAUL: Well, we should have the lowest tax that we’ve ever had, and up until 1913 it was 0%. What’s so bad about that? I think the question is generally misleading, because anytime you spend money, it’s a tax. You might tax, you might borrow, you might inflate. The vicious tax, that’s attacking the American people, the retired people today, is the inflation tax, the devaluation of the currency, the standard of living is going down, and you need to address that. And that’s why I want to make the inflation tax zero, as well: http://www.ontheissues.org/2012/Ron_Paul_Tax_Reform.htm


Is Dr. Paul ever wrong?

I just don't think so...Rick Perry is just an establishment POS shill...He sucks...I love what you shared...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!
Rosa Koire for for President!

Reports of Perry Leadership are an exaggeration.

The New Civil Rights Movement ... Suffice it to say, some might think these numbers are sufficient to indict Texas Governor Rick Perry for malpractice, not for the nation’s highest office.
Texas Ranks #1 in illiteracy. Perry is Illiterater in Chief. http://freakoutnation.com/2011/09/08/not-so-fast-gov-perry-m...
