    DON'T RUN. We need someone in office who knows how to represent America, not a dictator who ,with his cronies, tries to manipulate how a state represents their health care, guns, women rights and budgets. A man who does have enough common sense to change the name of his "second home retreat" before the media finds out and embarrass him and his family. DO WE ,AS AMERICANS, WANT THAT KIND OF IDIOT IN OUR HIGHEST OFFICE?

    DON'T. We need someone who knows how to democratically run a government, not a dictator who tries to tell his state what is good for them, from health, guns or budgets. we need someone who has enough common sense to change their "Home away from home"

    perry is right back ground checks will do no good crooks will not abide by it so why should citzens abide by it the oboma poll of 98 percent is actually people against back checks but of caurse the news media will make you think other wise if there were back ground checks the only people that will have their guns taken is people killed no one and may have amental set back in his whole life maybe a week or two which in my opinion would be wrong the gov will tellyo it would,nt effect them but the gov are liers

    I'm a Canadian and can not believe the statements i hear from some American's. GUNS KILL, it does not matter what kind of gun it is but it will not kill unless a person shoots it, so lets get that straight. You think of yourselves as being the leaders of the WORLD. I think not...I can't believe how many american's that have guns do not even know how to shoot. When i hear a woman stating she shot at an intruder 4 times and did not kill him, REALLY, Maybe YOU should not have a gun unless you take a gun safety course and learn how to use the darn thing, no wonder their are so many dead.. Backround checks are a MUST but also a gun course on how to use it with safety before handing that GUN over to anyone. Also, what was wrong with your last GUN Legislation on high capacity clips and certain guns, why was that even allowed to expire, Those children in NEWTOWN would probably be alive today if that had been kept intact. The whole world is watching American's let a handful of people take the USA back into the 1800's and not even the MEDIA is doing their job to educate ALL AMERICAN" on the reality and true facts of the 21'st century. Constitutional rights my #@@#...., anyone who does not want to get rid of the violence in the USA should go back to the countries their ancestors immigrated from, and as for blaming the Government for all of their problems, who do you think made the constitutional rights in the first place, THE GOVERNMENT..who do you think made it possible for ALL american's to live in the USA, THE GOVERNMENT, who made it possible for the American Dream... THE GOVERNMENT. who protect you from all other harmful countries in the world... THE GOVERNMENT. We are so sick of hearing how bad american's have it, really??????. If you do not like the rules and hate the government... MOVE OUT OF THE USA, quit putting your radical and big money revolutionist in charge of your lives. Your New Republican T-PARTY are ALL revolutionist, we know it and so does the rest of the world. Too bad the media is not telling you the truth. the reason being is that they know it boosts their ratings to let all these nut cases say the things they say. ALL ABOUT MONEY...President Obama is the only president in your history that has from day one, tried to give the country back to the people, but your voices have to be very loud, so stand up for what you know is RIGHT.He has showed all of you how to do it, but that is a choice you have to make. Quit complaining about how bad you have it and do something about it.. THAT IS DEMOCRACY, BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE...

    Whoa Doggies ! Makes a person wonder what in Sam Hell is Rick Perry thinking... I guess he's never come across the Abe Lincoln quote, " It's better to keep quiet and be thought an idiot, rather than open one's mouth and remove all doubt ". It's only been four years and some months, since the last idiot from Texas almost completely destroyed our country. I guess Rick Perry has no memory of that and somehow believes the majority of USA voter's won't remember either. If Rick is serious, he probably should start an intense study program right now, so he can at least get behind a microphone and not embarrass the proud state of Texas. I wonder if he's going to know what he's talking about next time around.
