I voted for McCain in November, he wasn't my first choice but beat the alternative. Both McCain and Obama were in the Senate and Obama was part of the party that led us over the cliff the last two years. My vote for McCain vs. Obama was solid.
In particular one might suggest you look at the income v outgoings for 2010 / 2011.
A very different picture curiously not rose colored appears.
I suggest you travel a little more and see what other states are like. You will be happy to come back to TX.
I live in the Washington DC area. Yet you keep trying to tell me how the federal government works.I really am amazed at what an expert you are on the state of TX since you do not live in this state but have such incredibly astute observations and opinions.
Solid? No, based on your impulses, not rationality. Nothing wrong with that, as long as you admit it. But you won't.I voted for McCain in November, he wasn't my first choice but beat the alternative.

How is that hope and change working out for you?
No one should have to tell you anything about how the Federal govt. works, it is there for all to see. Some however are blind, dumb, and stupid.
I made the right choice in November as I saw Obama for who he was, a leftwing radical with zero executive experience who would try and transform this country into a European socialist model society. With all his warts, McCain beat that alternative.
30 years ago I voted for mostly one party but even then couldn't go 100%.
Conservative we not only have the state in common we have the geographical area in common.
Having paid off this house 15 years ago I would like to actually outright own it someday instead of the government so I liked that about Medina but I wasn't quite sure how she was going to shift the cost. Talk about major changes, she would have brought some.
For all the reasons mentioned above I want Perry out but I'm not sure White will be any better, maybe a little. I would like to see Whites stance on all of the things I don't like about Perry but then I only have his word for it and would not know if he backed them up no more than Perry has his till he was in there for awhile.
If Perry ever tries to carry through with that secession I would be leery of the deal he has going behind the scenes for doing it.

The Republican Party isn't much better although the Republican Party better represents my issues.
If I lived in Houston, and I don't but live in a close suburb, I would have voted for Bill White. He did a good job for the city but wasn't perfect as there is no such thing. As it stands right now I will be voting for Perry but quite frankly don't have a problem with White. Time will tell. Depends on how close he gets to Obama and today's Democrat Party.
Rick Perry has no intention of trying to secede from the nation. He has however captured a populist view in TX and wants the Federal Govt. out of the state and I don't blame him. TX has a large Federal Govt. footprint however with the military bases and Border control agents along with military hospitals and Federal Govt. offices but it is also very independent and hopefully will remain that way.
I have no intention of voting for anyone that would even promote seceding from the union as that is a very short thinking individual out of touch with reality. I do want TX however to continue being the pro growth, pro business state that it is and operate without that entitlement mentality that other states seem to have. I am extremely happy living in this state and at this point see no reason to change Governors. That could change but not if the Democrats get their claws into this state.
I think that the men who have occupied the Oval Office all wanted what they thought was best for the nation. Voting a straight ticket may or may not change things but if you accept that nobody who sat behind the President's desk had ill intent; why not let him enact his edicts by giving him a Congress that would move in "some" direction.
Gridlock isn't working for me, you, or anybody else.
As for Rick Perry, it is time for a change. I say elect White.
