Perry: Obama 'hell-bent' on socialism

Texas GOP Gov. Rick Perry accused President Barack Obama on Wednesday of “punishing” Texas and being “hell-bent” on turning the United States into a socialist country.

Speaking at a luncheon for a Midland County Republican Women’s group, Perry said that “this is an administration hell-bent toward taking American towards a socialist country. And we all don’t need to be afraid to say that because that’s what it is.”

Perry praised the tea party movement to the Republican activists in attendance, crediting the grassroots groups with discouraging some Democrats in Washington from pushing for a public option in the health care bill.

“If you all think those tea parties didn’t work, then let me tell you something,” Perry said. “When they all came home in August for those town hall meetings, they got an earful. Then they went back to Washington, D.C. and the Senate voted that public option down in committee with a majority of Democrats in the Senate.”

Perry also accused the Obama administration of intentionally dumping illegal immigrants from other western states in Texas, recalling a conversation he had with local officials notifying him that illegal aliens that were caught in Nogales, Arizona were being dropped off by federal authorities in Presidio, Texas.

“Friday a week ago, I got not a phone call from Washington, not a letter from Washington and as a matter of fact, I don’t think any member of our congressional delegation was even notified. The first time we were contacted was by the superintendent of the school and the county judge of Presidio County,” Perry said.

“They said, ‘do you all know what’s fixin’ to happen?’ I said, ‘well, no. What’s going on?’ They said ‘the government has just called us and said for us to get ready for an influx of illegal aliens who were captured illegally crossing the border.’”

“It’s called the alien transfer-and-exit program,” Perry told the crowd, “trucking them from Nogales, past El Paso down to our western border in Presidio.”

The Texas governor said he sees the action as “punishing this state” and urged the assembled Republicans to “stand up” to Washington.

“I say it’s time to make tea parties twice as big as what they were,” Perry declared. “I think it’s time for us to stand up and say to Washington, D.C. that we are no longer going to accept that kind of stuff sitting down and being quiet.”

Many detractors of our goal of Texas independence have stated that they don't believe that Texas could survive as an independent nation. However, a quick check of the facts and any type of intellectual honesty shows the exact opposite is true.

Let's look at the data and compare it to the rest of the world.

1) Texas Gross Domestic Product - Texas had a Gross Domestic Product of $1.245 trillion in 2008. This would place Texas ahead of 183 other independent nations.

2) Population - A 2007 estimate put the Texas population at 23,904,380. This would place Texas ahead of 117 other independent nations.

3) Labor Force - Texas has always been known for it's outstanding labor force. The 2009 estimates for the Texas labor force stand at 11,861,400 which would be more than 152 other independent nations.

4) Potential Government Revenue - Since a tremendous amount of tax money paid by Texans goes to fuel a bloated Federal bureaucracy and fund Federal programs that would not exist in an independent Texas, it is a piece of information that has to be calculated. We will also have to make one assumption to arrive at this figure. For the purposes of arriving at potential government revenue, we will assume that all taxes paid to the Federal Government will be shifted to Austin. This will give us a "potential" revenue for the government of an independent Texas.

Texans paid $225.4 billion into the Federal tax system in 2005 (the latest year from which we can obtain data). The State of Texas collected $77.5 billion in the 2008 fiscal year. Combine these two and you receive a potential government revenue of $302.9 billion per year. This would place Texas 12th in the world in budget revenues and ahead of 183 other independent nations.

5) Exports - Texas exports in 2006 totaled $150.8 billion making us 28th globally and ahead of 167 other independent nations.

6) Military - Since Texas doesn't currently have a standing military other than the State Guard, we will have to calculate these numbers based on what we do know. The United States spends 4% of its Gross Domestic Product on the military and defense. Applying this percentage to the GDP of Texas gives us a figure of approximately $50 billion per year which would rank us 5th globally in military spending ahead of 190 other independent nations.

7) Energy - Texas Crude Oil Proved Reserves: 4,613 million barrels, ranked 1st in US. Texas is fully self-sufficient in current energy resources, when used wisely, to last Texas easily another 100-300 years. Besides Texas' oil, natural gas, coal, and nuclear energy capabilities, Texas is a leader in wind, solar, & methane energy development and practical usage.

Looking solely at these factors may not be enough to make a determination of Texas' viability as an independent nation, but they are significant and are complimented by mountains of other data related to the economy, infrastructure, labor and energy that are easily accessible.

Don't get too excited, Perry is just doing what his masters tell him to do, which is to incite as much division as possible. TPTB would just love to sucker us into a civil war, and they wouldn't think twice about using state of Texas to give it a jump start.

I agree that one of the best solutions to our current dilemma is for the states to regain sovereignty, but to expect lapdogs like Rick Perry to lead such a movement is just foolish. It is going to take a new breed of politician to craft a policy that can break the strangehold of our current federal system.
