“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6

"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

Rick Perry: As Fiscally Irresponsible as Barack Obama

Incumbent Texas Governor Rick Perry

Rick Perry, the current governor of Texas, plans on holding a rally in South Carolina and announcing his candidacy for the 2012 Republican nomination for the Presidency. It is no coincidence that Perry will announce his intentions to seek the nomination on the day of the Ames, Iowa Straw Poll. Political analysts speculate that Perry’s team wants to create a large media splash and will try to place the straw poll in the background.
Perry will attempt to garner both fiscally and socially conservative voters in early primary states, but his record as governor will likely hurt his campaign more than it will help it. Rick Perry, who alluded to Texas secession in order to pander to states’ rights supporters during the Tea Party surge, would not have been able to balance Texas’s budget without money from Barack Obama.
Texas used $22 billion in stimulus money from the federal government as a part of the stimulus package.
The 3-term, 11 year Texas Governor is facing a $13.4 billion deficit in 2012, which is 31.5% of the 2011 budget. Texas currently has the 3rd highest deficit behind only California and Illinois, which both have crumbling economies. While Rick Perry might have been able to balance past budgets with stimulus money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, he will not be able to in years ahead because of his past and present fiscally irresponsibility. Perry cannot hope for a bailout in order to balance the federal budget and that is why he is as unfit as President Obama is to serve.
If Perry boasts his ability to balance the Texas budget, he must also stand behind the federal bailout that made it possible. Any family or business could balance their personal budgets if they were given enough free money by the federal government, but American families aren’t as lucky as state governments.
Perry fails to resonate with the average American as he is a career politician who has never held or created a legitimate job in his life. Perry, who according to recently released transcripts, earned a D in basic economics in college, isn’t fit to lead the US into economic prosperity and is by no means the solution to our financial woes. If you want fiscal conservatism and a return to Constitutional roots, you’re likely going to have to look at candidates like Ron Paul.
