Still waiting for an answer to the questions I posed to you over the weekend. Would you prefer living in a state where people have the freedom to choose what is best for them or one where you are forced to participate in what the govt. wants for you?
Keep diverting from the thread topic and showing how truly non partisan you are. Is there anything that Bush did that you supported making it bi partisan in your world? Whether it be non partisan or bi partisan, neither seem to be part of your vocabulary as all I see from you is rhetoric, diversion, and distortions. Keep it up
And what am I diverting from? I challenged you to cite the bill(s) Perry signed into law which led to the current economy in Texas and you could name one.

Perry has drawn a lot of business to TX by making trips, making phone calls, promoting TX all over the nation. The TX results have led to businesses moving to this state, employment growing in this state leading to a NET JOBS GAIN during the recession. It would serve no purpose to post the legislation that Perry signed because you wouldn't buy it or believe it yet you believe the Obama rhetoric and ignore that he signed no legislation or even authored any legislation that has warranted your vote for him.
The Obama record speaks for itself thus the choice between Perry and Obama if that happens is quite clear, Perry! Just like with Bush vs. Gore, Bush vs. Kerry, McCain vs. Obama, the choice was clear to thinking individuals, thinking with the brain something liberals never seem to do. Continue to buy the Obama rhetoric and ignore the Obama results for that is what liberals always do. Just a reminder
The PRIMER if you look up the Perry Record.
Public pri*vate part*ner*ships (or P3s) are part and parcel of the United Nations’ Agenda 21. Two of the pur*poses of Agenda 21 are to abolish pri*vate prop*erty and restrict mobility and P3s act as the vehicle to do it. Perry made P3s a cen*ter*piece of his trans*porta*tion policy since he stepped in as governor.
It started with the Trans Texas Cor*ridor, known at the fed*eral level as high pri*ority cor*ri*dors, cor*ri*dors of the future, or the NAFTA super*high*ways. Just in Texas, it was to be a 4,000 mile multi-modal net*work of toll roads, rail lines, power trans*mis*sion lines, pipelines, telecom*mu*ni*ca*tions lines and more. It was going to be financed, oper*ated, and con*trolled by a for*eign com*pany granted mas*sive swaths of land 1,200 feet (4 foot*ball fields) wide taken forcibly through emi*nent domain.
Called the biggest land grab in Texas his*tory, it was going to gobble up 580,000 acres of pri*vate Texas land (the first cor*ridor alone was to dis*place 1 mil*lion Texans) and hand it over to well-connected global players using P3s, who would gain exclu*sive rights to deter*mine the route and what hotels, restau*rants, and gas sta*tions were along the cor*ridor in a government-sanctioned monopoly for a half cen*tury. It was the worst case of emi*nent domain for pri*vate gain ever conceived.
I can go on with pages of dirty deals and good ol boy give aways from the People of Texas to the Elite All Hat no Cattle crowd that buzz around Perry. I am saving it for it's own thread, closer to the election.

Since Perry has been office, the price of oil skyrocketted from under $25/barrel to a high of around $140/barrel. That is the No. 1 reason that Texas has performed better than some other states.
Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ 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! 40% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.
