I didn't know much about Rick Perry until recently. I knew he was the successful governor of Texas. I know they love him there. Thats about it. But I've been reading up on him, and something about his charisma along with his stance on issues...I like it. I think he's my favorite right now. Quick notes: - He was a "yell leader" at Texas A&M - He was a captain in the US Air Force - He was a cotton farmer - Married to his elementary school sweetheart - Pro-cops, tough on crime - Wants to limit tort and stupid lawsuits - Anti-abortion - Anti-gay marriage - Pro-Death Penalty (200 executions under his watch) - Doesn't believe in global warming - Has great, Southern charisma - Flirted with seccession after health care law shoved through US throats In short.....I like him. Hope he runs. Perry/West????
