"Rick Perry gives a speech at a Tea Party rally, but as governor, all he's done is promote taxing, tolling, big spending, and big government."
by Robert Morrow
On April 15, Rick Perry had the nerve to speak at Tea Party rallies in Austin, Arlington, and Ft. Worth, where the public came out to protest high taxes and big government programs draining our economy. Yet, as governor, Rick Perry strongly promoted a new business margins tax (small-business killer) that came into effect two years ago, and he has done nothing but promote for nine years. Rick Perry has pushed through a gargantuan toll road taxing and spending scheme, and the biggest tax increase in Texas history. Billions and billions of dollars of tax revenues, all for his special interest toll road friends.
Rick Perry gives a speech at a Tea Party rally, but as governor, all he's done is promote . He's desperate and may now realize that he can't win on a "pro-life" position alone, while being funded with toll road money.
I am not supporting this idiot. I am for anyone but Rick Perry in 2010, and this is because I am sick of Rick Perry’s BIG GOVERNMENT CRAP.
It is time to flush Rick Perry’s CRAP agenda down the toilet. And what kind of big government CRAP does Rick Perry promote?
CRAP #1 -- The Trans Texas Corridor and the gargantuan, multi-billion dollar toll road fiasco. The TTC and the toll roads are the biggest taxing, spending, and tolling increases in the history of Texas! The toll road scam screws Texas taxpayers, consumers, drivers and landowners. Rick Perry shoved toll roads down the throats of millions of Texans. It is a prime example of the big government, pro-tax, pro-toll agenda of Rick Perry. Then he wants to sell these roads off for quick cash like a fool.
CRAP #2 -- How about that NEW business margins tax that Rick Perry pushed through in 2006? These victims get to pay taxes on some formula of the total revenue of their companies. That means these small companies pay taxes on revenue, not income or profits. So you still pay taxes even if you are losing money!! That’s pure Rick Perry CRAP.
CRAP #3 -- Rick Perry tried to mandate that all the young girls in Texas be FORCED to take an HPV vaccine (manufactured by Merck & Co.), with the parents required to pay $400.00 for the shot! That was a tremendous invasion into the family lives of millions of Texans and this idiotic "Big Brother" CRAP is reason enough to vote for anyone but Rick Perry. He wants to stick a needle filled with a possibly dangerous, probably ineffective chemical into the arms of every 6th grade girl in Texas.
CRAP #4 -- It was really tragic for Rick Perry to support the raid in the FLDS community and removal of 439 children from their parents on the basis of an out-of-state crank phone call. Think of all the tears, trauma and family destruction that Rick Perry and an out-of-control Child “Protective” Services caused when they pulled that CRAP. As of today, all but ONE of the children have been sent back to their parents; it just shows you what CRAP this case was.
CRAP #5 -- Have you heard of the Texas Enterprise Fund? That is Rick Perry’s slush fund to dole out your money to political supporters. Looks like some socialistic/fascist CRAP to me.
CRAP #6 -- How about that $3 Billion in medical research pork barrel spending for that Lance Armstrong cancer deal? More BIG GOVERNMENT from Rick Perry. Or banning smoking in all those restaurants and bars? Or the $5 door fee Rick Perry supported to TAX every patron of a topless club? He wants to oppress strippers and their patrons now -- What CRAP!
Whether you are at home, driving on a road, running a business, raising a family, or dancing at a topless bar, Rick Perry wants BIG Government to be there with you, taxing you, tolling you, sticking needles in your daughter, and taking $5 every time you go to a topless bar. It is time to flush out Rick Perry’s CRAP!
