CONSERVATIVES SHOULD BE WARY OF "SLICK RICK" PERRY!
Perry wasn't always the "gun slinging" Texas cowboy. Long before Perry created his phony macho image, he was a male cheerleader at Texas A&M in the 1960's.
A lifelong Democrat, Perry supported Jimmy Carter over Ronald Reagan in the critical 1980 election.
1984: In spite of Reagan's economic miracle, Democrat Perry again rejected Ronald Reagan and was elected to the Texas State legislature with Ultra-Liberal Walter Mondale leading the National Democrat ticket. Reagan was reelected in a landslide with the support of even many Democrats, BUT NOT RICK PERRY'S!
In 1987, liberal Democrat Perry voted for a 5.7 billion dollar tax increase!
In 1988, Perry was Texas campaign manager for Al Gore's presidential run. Perry then backed super liberal Michael Dukakis in the General Election.
When it became obvious that being a Democrat in conservative Texas was a career killer, the opportunistic and ambitious Perry switched to the Republican Party in 1990. The liberal Democrat college cheerleader cleverly transformed his image into a tough talking, gun slinging Texas cowboy.
"I intend to vote the same convictions," Perry said. "The only difference is that there will be an "R" next to my name."
Now Agriculture Commissioner, in 1993 Perry praised Hillary Clinton's socialized health care scheme,describing it as "most commendable."
At a "border summit" with Mexican President Vicente Fox in 2001, Perry bragged about increasing Medicaid spending for immigrants in Texas. He also proposed the possibility of "Bi-National" health insurance:
"Mexican and U.S. sides of the border compose one region, and we must address health care problems throughout that region. That's why I am also excited that Texas Secretary of State Henry Cuellar is working on an initiative that could extend the benefits of telemedicine to individuals living on the Mexican side of the border.

Parents were outraged! The drug was developed by Merck, a contributor to Rick Perry! The tyrannical mandate was later repealed by the Texas legislature, over Perry's objections!
Perry is a Big Government liberal! In 10 years as Governor, he nearly doubled the size of the Texas budget while tripling its debt! From 2009-2011, Texas has had an increase in state workers of 5.9%, a gain of nearly 18,000 state jobs!
Big Liberal Media is promoting Perry! The elite liberals hype Perry's candidacy while at the same time "attacking" him just enough to give him credibility among conservatives. This clever tactic is known as "sheep dipping" (as in a wolf in sheep's clothing).
"Conservative Cowboy" Perry shows off his boots on Newsweek Magazine.
Rick Perry talks a good game about "States' Rights", but in reality, he is not a supporter of State's Rights at all! To the contrary, Perry is a dedicated internationalist who has attended meetings of the influential Bildeberger Group in Europe. As described in The Drudge Report, Bildeberger is pro-socialist and anti-national sovereignty.
In order to win Christian votes, Slick Rick shamelessly wears a false Christianity "on his sleeve". His insincere public prayer spectacles call to mind a biblical warning from Jesus himself.
"And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men....when thou prayest, enter into thy closet and when thou has shut thy door, pray to thy Father." Perry prays on a Jumbotron!
This is not in anyway intended as a condemnation of public prayer, but rather as a warning against hypocrites who misuse religion for the purpose of self promotion.
