Re: Majority Rules, yes and independents are the majority

to be honest, I didn't like Perry to start out with, and will never be anything more than lukewarm to another swaggering Texan. But I do like the fact that all of the socialistic/communistic types of garden variety liberal hypocrites immediately hate the guy. Something must be right about him.

Re: Majority Rules, yes and independents are the majority

Quote from TTB's above post:

 

There's a lot of different scenarios," Perry said. "We've got a great union. There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it.

 

Quote from first post in this thread:

 

 Not the long ago that "richard-head" was wanting to secede from the USA, and now he wants to be elected to the top position of the same government that he didn't want to be a part of

 

 

 

How do you get him wanting to secede from this, the actual quote you used to illustrate your point?

Is it by wearing the same glasses that many liberals wear when they talk about the 'separation of church and state' that is written in the Constitution?

  That's straight from the republican party network. Their words, not mine. Take it up with them.

Re: Majority Rules, yes and independents are the majority

Let me see if I can explain this to you in terms you will understand....

 

A man says, "My wife and I have a great marriage. There is no reason to get divorced."

 

So, if the man was not thinking about divorce or listening to someone talk about divorce, why mention it? Why not just say they have a great marriage and not mention divorce?

 

Perry's statement was indeed overblown and twisted, but that's what we do these days, isn't it? It is sort of like taking the hospice provisions in the health care bill and making "death panels" out of them. Some still believe there are death panels because it was such a clever ruse that some have no desire to look deeper or contemplate the full meaning of the provision. Likewise, some will not want to look beyond what Perry said for his true belief and will hold this up as what he is all about.

 

All of it is about the "gotcha" twisted politics and a mentality that has this nation by the dangley parts. People make others say what they want said if they have opportunity and this was the opportunity people took on Perry. Someone else will be next.

Re: Rick Perry, traitor or wannabe opportunist?

Hey Tom, to start with I only support the good Republicans like Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul and Sarah Palin. There are a fair number of Conservative, corn farmers that will hold their noses and vote their back pocket, Obama over Rick Perry.  See, Perry has evaded questions on ethanol, so by default he is seen as uber anti-ethanol.  Obama and the Dems keep wanting to dredge up GW Bush at every turn "Ahh inherited this from Bush. Ahhh inherited that from Bush".  I can`t help but think if he runs against Perry he will thank Allah, because in a debate Perry is such a Bush clone, it will underscore his point.  This country is in such a mess, even Sarah Palin would have trouble straightening it out, Obama owns this economy so perhaps he should wear it another 4 yrs if we can`t pick the right Republican.  If Republicans hold the House and take the Senate, how much more damage could Obama do?

I understand what is going on, but if you take the reasoning of the opening post on this thread, the man would be 'wanting a divorce'.

 

In my opinion, WAY too much politics involved in what was said, what wasn't said, what was implied, what he would have said had he said something different than what he said, etc, etc.  It's all just a way to stir up the pot.

 

For example, many times I have come against wasteful government spending.  For example, I might say that I know of a case of some sort of fraud in the case of a student loan.  Suddenly I get accused of not wanting poor people to have an education, and I said nothing of the sort, I just want to get rid of that kind of fraud.

I know it goes both ways, because if someone else says the government needs more revenue, suddenly they are accused of wanting to have another couple billion to spend on "Big Dig II". 

Why can't we take what is said at face value, unless there is evidence to point otherwise?  Especially to the point of saying that someone was for something they publicly stated they were against?
