2008 GOP Presidential and VP Team Giuliani and Perry: Welcome to the Sewers of the U.S.

Demi-Gods or Demons? You be the judge.
Giuliani is the better-known nationally of the 2 men, but neither one deserves the support of his party.
You have to take your hat off to Texas Governor Rick Perry. Only in America --- specifically Texas --- could a governor who won only 39-percent of the total votes get reelected without a run-off and then set his sights on being Vice President of the U.S.! How could that be?
1. Perry continues to do everything for his wealthy corporate special interests and they in turn provide him with huge campaign dollars, high-end perks and their undying support
2. There were 4 contenders in the last gubernatorial race of which only 1 was a viable contender, 2 were independents, 1 a Libertine; consequently, Texas voters were flim-flammed unsure of how to cast their votes, although it was clear that most did NOT want Perry reelected
3. Unlike in most other states, Texas law does NOT provide for a run-off election if a gubernatorial candidate wins by less than 50-percent of the total votes; this is true despite run-off elections for most other elected legislative positions throughout the state.
Another way of looking at it is that 61-percent of Texas voters cast their votes AGAINST Perry --- and for very good reasons. However, nothing stops Rick Perry. He is a legend in his own mind.
Give Perry credit that his audacity clearly exceeds his ethics, credibility and capability of becoming a good VP. He is Corporate Amerika's dream come true and most Americans' nightmare.
If Giuliani is the best candidate the GOP can come up with, Americans will remain deep in the muck started by Bill Clinton and surpassed by the Bush administration. By the way, anyone still thinking that Bush is doing a great job as president is severely in need of psychiatric incarceration.
So, beware, Americans, of a new approaching doom. Gov. Rick "39-percent" Perry currently is stomping for his new hero Rudy Giuliani. In fact, Perry is so gung-ho in his focus for the Veep position that he publicly has turned against his former esteemed mentor and Texas "good ol' boy" buddy George Bush, stating, among other things, that Bush "... was never a fiscal conservative."
American voters, please know the facts about ruthless and unethical Rick Perry.
Once a liar, always a liar!
Yes, I'm talking about Gov. Rick "39-percent" Perry!
Here are 2 of many unethical actions perpetrated by Rick Perry against the people of Texas. Now that he's going to run for Vice President in 2008, American voters need to realize what sort of man Perry REALLY is.
Several years ago Texas Gov. Rick "Special Interests" Perry put on his ten-gallon Stetson, saddled-up his tax-paid plane and rode all over the state lobbying to eliminate what he and his special interest health care industry cronies called "frivolous medical malpractice lawsuits."
Texans were promised that if they voted for this proposal, they soon would see a reduction in the costs of health care and related medical services.
Well, just as in the most recent proposed amendment election [Nov. 6, 2007] where only 8 percent of all registered Texas voters approved ALL 16 amendments, back in 2005 Perry and his "good ol' boys" got what they wanted. Proposition 12 was approved and Texans were duped.
Looking at it 2 years later you don't have to be an Einstein or brain surgeon to see that Perry was touting another pack of lies, just as he did this time re: Proposed Amendment 15, a.k.a., "the cure for cancer."
Also 2 years ago Perry lobbied to deregulate higher education tuition, promising Texans that doing so would decrease the cost of a college education while making institutions more competitive. That proposition was approved also. After 3 successive tuition increases since the proposal was accepted, tuition costs are the highest ever in the state.
In another 2 years Texans again will see what a load of buffalo chips their governor REALLY is regarding Prop. 15.
By the way, I just got another letter from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Texas telling me that they have to increase my family's premium again and another notice from the University of Texas (UT) stating it regrets having to increase my children's tuition!
So, American voters beware! There's another political plague emerging from New York and Texas.
While the team of Giuliani / Perry if elected will ensure infinite and runaway corporate profiteering, a.k.a., Corporate Welfare, for at least the next 4 years, the majority of Americans and their families are doomed politically, social and certainly economically. The U.S. will remain a shadow of its former self and its citizens will remain in economic shackles with little hope for escape. More reasons will evolve to make the U.S. hated and feared among the nations of the world.
The team of Giuliani / Perry will make certain that the United States will return into an Ice Age of catastrophic proportions. It will be the Armageddon prophesized by the Bush administration and many Christian scholars.
If currently most Americans are trying to survive in the muck created by the Bush administration, electing the team of Giuliani / Perry ensures that our nation will plummet into the infamous cosmic black hole, from which there is no return.
Wake-up, America, the end is drawing near!
