Comments on: Tea party boosts Perry to top of GOP polls Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: mikrat Tue, 06 Sep 2011 20:50:25 +0000 nieldevi (post above) obviously has no idea who Perry really is other than what FOX has told him. Perry is just another NEOCON/Globalist shill. Go Look at his real history.

The only candidate that tells the truth is Ron Paul – But the media wont tell you that.

Ghostcommander stated that “the poor pay 12% of their income towards taxes, ie., sales taxes, vehicle stickers registration, etc… He did not “state income taxes”. Your glowing illiteracy is a prescient reminder of the state of education in your wonderful tax free Texas.

By: oldpatriot Wed, 31 Aug 2011 20:42:47 +0000 oldpatriot: “TEXAS tax system burdens poor”…..poorest 20% pay 12% income tax, top 1% pay only 3% tax “.
IF your talking about FEDERAL income tax, this % of poor, etc. LIVING in TX. is no reflection on PERRY.
IF your talking about STATE income taxes, your INFO>
needs more research & CORRECTED!

“The sad facts behind Rick Perry’s Texas miracle”

1.Perry’s Texas tied with Mississippi in 2010 with the highest percentage of minimum wage workers in the country.
Because… people in Texas are OK with minimum wage and understand that if more people worked at that level, we’d have more jobs in OUR country.

2. Perry’s Texas has twenty six percent of “it’s” residents with no health insurance-the worst of 50 states.
Because… The people of Texas are pretty hardcore and the ones who are happy they are on minimum wage don’t call in sick when they get the sniffles.

3. Perry’s Texas leads the nation with children without health insurance.
Because… the kids are hardcore, too!

4. Perry’s Texas ranks first in adults with no high school diploma.
Because… they don’t need a high school diploma to know that the number 5 comes after 4… not 6 like you seem to think.

5. (or 6 if your hand has an extra finger). Perry’s Texas is #6 in teen age pregnancy
Because… Texas has couples that have different anatomies so they can actually produce children. Sorry California and New York.

Romney appears to be the least scary of the bunch. What a group to choose from. It is hard to believe that this is all this country has to offer to lead us.

By: James2039 Tue, 30 Aug 2011 14:45:15 +0000 This CNN/ORC poll has already been proven as bunk. No offense to the Perry supporters out there, the Gallup poll is legit and he’s definitely the polling leader, but the poll is still bunk. nd-opinion-research-center-the-numbers-d ont-add-up/11826/

Details at the link, but basically huge numbers of the people they polled aren’t being included in the poll. How else do you think Giuliani and Gingrich are doing so well? CNN needs to fire those ORC guys and hire Gallup or Rasmussen’s or something, but it has to be criminal to be releasing false figures like that.

By: Jaayy Tue, 30 Aug 2011 09:31:26 +0000 All these major media conglomerates now speaking for the Tea Party. Wow, that’s credible.

By: 98VWTDI Tue, 30 Aug 2011 03:53:50 +0000 So people are being fooled again by another neocon warmonger republican (Rick Perry)? If the American People are dumb enough to vote governor pointy-boots into the White House then shouldn’t complain when their children get deployed to Iran in 2013.

By: nieldevi Tue, 30 Aug 2011 02:34:38 +0000 This is Great!!! Rick Perry should definitely be the Republican candidate for President. No-one else comes close. Romney is a has-been, lost the last time why would we want him again? Bachmann is as flaky as Palin, and a loose canon to boot. Ron Paul is a regional myopic. And the rest are pretenders to the throne. Perry is the only possibility left.
