    Office of the Governor Rick Perry - Gov. Perry Backs Resolution Affirming Texas’ Sovereignty Under 10th Amendment

    Gov. Perry Backs Resolution Affirming Texas’ Sovereignty Under 10th Amendment

    HCR 50 Reiterates Texas’ Rights Over Powers Not Otherwise Granted to Federal Government
    April 09, 2009


    AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    “I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”

    Perry is positioning for 2012.

    Next resolution he has in the works -- "AMERICA - FUCK YEAH!"

    Yeah, a bit of posturizing IMHO, but this, along with the AG proclaiming "right wing" threats, tea parties, etc... this isn't protesting a Federal government action (i.e. Iraq), but the government body itself.

    On a side note... I lent the government money in 2007 interest-free in the form of overpaid taxes. They paid me back that money in 2008, and now they want to tax me on that re-payment via "income".

    ?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This tea party thing is looking more and more legit.

    I say cut them loose. The more conservative the state, the more the inequality between what they send to Washington and what they get back.

    Let 'em sit in their own swill. It serves 'em right.

    Actually, Texas sends the third largest amount to Washington after CA and NY but gets back less per cap than those two states. Do you drive a car? Thank Texas for the fuel to power it. Outside the cities, all Americans are a bit conservative.

    You'll be happy to know that "tea bagging" is not just reserved to the gay community. So feel free to dip your nuts in the mouth of any willing female participant you can find! :biggrin1:

    I'm all for small government, more personal freedoms and all that old school conservative stuff... but where were they when Bush stealing our civil liberties? This is exactly why I vote third party now.

    Facey, bro, adjust your exemptions and other withholding :)

    Teabagging <snicker> Parties are being organized and paid for by several conservative PACs (including one led by Dick Armey). ("If you are going to have hundreds of teabagging parties across the country, you are going to need a Dick Armey!") Fox has provided free PR and even offered bandwidth for 'virtual' teabagging. The least educated voters are being punked again by the radical right.

    As a side note, I think I first teabagged as a college freshman. She was lying there on her back, and it just seem so right ...

    at one of ricky's reelection year somebody said he was gay, he went ballistic was too funny. anyone that has ever seen would wonder if it was not true and he was protesting to much. him and senator kay bailey hutchinson, the former channel 2 weather girl, want to exchange jobs next election. Texas has always had some strange politics.

    I sense there is some disappointment that your boy and his ideology (an ideology even you didn't expect) is already under fire 4 months in.

    I sense a racist undertone. Racism is for losers.

    I protested, I actually sent a protest e-mail. :cool: Never got so much as a form letter in response. :mad:

    It does sound that way doesn't it. :irked: Perhaps if they could attack his actions and laws without calling him 'boy' they wouldn't sound racist. :rolleyes:


    Technically it will be 3 months on April 20th, not 4 months. Also, watch who you call boy. :angryfire2:

    Yes, you can as long as the mouth in question is female. :kiss:
