    In November the country voted for change and look where that got us. It isn't working out for anyone. Now many of these same people want to make a change in TX. I see no reason to make that change.

    I don't think this is a Dem vs. Rep thing, like I said before, Hutchison would make a good governor.

    Perry just screams "sleazy," I'm really very suspicious of him.

    I am just not willing to change right now. Things are better in TX than almost anywhere else in the nation, I know, I travel. Want to see pure misery go to California or the midwest. There is no justification for change right now in this state, IMO.

    Typical rant from someone who doesn't live in TX. You have no business sticking your nose into what we do here but that doesn't stop a know it all and a true legend in his own mind.

    Look I know Texas is at the top right now, I completely agree. But the other candidates, regardless of their political party, seem to have ideas that will, yes, change things in Texas. These ideas seem to only improve the state though.

    I don't think we can change things that quickly here anyway, the economy is so large, the state itself is so damn diverse that any major change now will only be truly realized like 10 to 15 years down the line.

    In fact, its everyone's business, or at least every American's business

    Even if I still lived in the North, I would be just as concerned. If any state leaves the Union its a loss for every American. That's one problem with this country, we don't think of ourselves as "us" anymore, when it comes to states people say "oh forget you you're just another state, deal with your own problems." Most of the time this is a fair statement, but at the end of the day this is one entire country. I would hate to see a state go, even if its one I dislike.

    People that are voting need to look at the big picture. We are in a recession and TX has weathered that recession better than almost every other state in the country and based upon that I see no reason to change.

    All the allegations against Perry and especially some here in this thread don't hold water in face of the economic conditions in this state vs. the country. I love living in TX, I love the basic independence here, the common sense that most have, no state income taxes, a choice where to live that determines the property taxes I pay, the economy of TX, and the diverse geography here.

    Everyone is looking for the perfect candidate and isn't going to find it anywhere. I can find a lot I don't like about Perry but based upon the economic conditions here he has my vote.
    I agree that Mr. White has the letter D after his name and is evidently not a turncoat, unlike Mr. Perry who before he saw which side his bread was buttered on was a member of Al Gores staff.
    God knows what that sneaky bast**d taught him.
    The point I am making is that perry is an opportunist, he has no beliefs other than what suits his pocket best.
    With regards to rumors, that is all they are unless they can be substantiated.
    But you must choose who you want, someone who (with warts) yet apparently cares for Texas, or someone who does not give a tinkers cuss for anything except his own pocket.

    Based upon the economy in the country vs the economy in TX today why would we change the TX Governor? Perry has been Governor for over a decade so we know what we have now. I see no reason to change.
