    "As the state’s longest serving governor in history, Perry has faced persistently low approval ratings as he’s pushed through a radical right-wing agenda that has left Texas with a record budget deficit, the third highest poverty rate in the country, and the highest percentage of uninsured residents in the country. As Think Progress has documented, Perry has a history of ducking tough questions by invoking religion, and has suggested in the past that he’s just implementing God’s will on Earth through his irresponsible governance. Perry may be answering Republicans’ prayers if he enters the race, but it’s still pretty self-aggrandizing to call himself a prophet."

    The thing that doesn't make any sense is why do most Texas voters continue to vote for extreme right wingers for governor and legislators when the right wing portion of the GOP has literally bankrupted the state. Why do most Texans continue to allow religion and other extremist right wing opinions influence their vote. They seem to hate what the extreme conservative republicans are doing in state government but than they turn around and reelect these incompetant idiots. Are most Texans that blindicon_question.gif

    Texans just vote for (R). The name before (R) is irrelevant.

    HELLO.
    It's Texas.
    He has an "R" after his name.
    He can eat kittens and babies for breakfast, every morning, and still get reelected for the rest of his life.
