Due to the fact that the Obama administration abandoned “the founding fathers principles of limited government”, Perry suggested that divorcing this country was an option. This is about as unpatriotic as you can get. Don’t get me wrong I’m not the biggest fan of jingoism, but I do believe that someone running for President should not be so quick to part ways with the country when there are fiscal policies they don’t agree with. Why is he willing to pray for our country now? Apparently it’s either prayer or secede for this man.
As much as Perry claims that he wants to cut Texas’ umbilical cord, it seems that he forgot that he sucked on America’s breast during the financial downturn in 2009. The governor claimed that he was able to balance the budget without raising taxes or getting money from the state’s “rainy day fund,” but what Perry didn’t mention was that in lieu of the emergency fund, Texas accepted over $6 billion in federal stimulus money.
