Is Marxist Black Liberation Theology more acceptable to you than Christianity? You have the right to prefer one over the other, don't get me wrong. I just think you're taking an emotion based position on this one without really considering the facts.
    I put Fallwell and Farrakhan in the same boat, they are just opposite ends of the extreme...neither is better or worse for America than the other.

    The simple reality is, the vast majority of Americans don't want a religious extremist in office at either end of the spectrum. Perry's views are so out of the mainstream of America that he will certainly appeal to the radical right-wing of the GOP, but he will turn off moderates and will certainly not attract independents.

    Why do you think that I want him to get the nomination? He, along with Palin and/or Bachmann would certainly energize the base, but you can't win the GE with your base, you have to be able to attract the moderates and independents and none of those three can.

    I would LOVE Perry to beat Romney for the nomination. Perry would lose worse than McCain.
    Your reasoning doesn't make any sense

    Romney lost against McCain and McCain lost against Obama yet Romney is the better choice over Perry to beat Obama and Perry would lose worse than McCain?

    You obviously don't understand the difference between getting the primary nomination and winning in the general election.

    Religious baggage means more than just believing in God. It means having a dogmatic belief, wanting to limit rights based on the "bible's teachings" using religion to dismiss concerns about global warming etc. Those are the people Parry associate with. They are the ones who lead his Payer Event aka The Call.

    Plus...the other problem for Perry, aside from his extremist views, is being Governor of Texas, he is going to have the stigma of looking eerily similar to GWB...and we all know what happened to this country the last time a Texas Governor was in charge. I don't think the American people are going to embrace Perry that well.

    So are you, Disney, a true liberal ideologue that supports 2 1/2 years of failed or lack of leadership and the following results.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 38% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.

    You can't be a leader if half the governing body hates you.

    In true hypocritical Con form you are the perfect epitome of the black kettle....considering that GWB was by far a bigger disaster who took a surplus and mortgaged the integrity and soul of our country...and yet.......you not only voted for him once......but several times.

    Look at the vast majority of the American people. They know who is primarily responsible for the economic mess that this country is in. You, however, are so infatuated with your admiration for a proven failure that you cannot see beyond it. That is downright comical.

    BTW....I'm not the one that has a flop as my avatar.....lol.......
