Rick Perry is leading the Republican Pack with 41% of the Tea Party vote, according to a new poll. (quoted at Huffington Post)  To me, this is proof positive that the Tea Party is mostly a bunch of yahoo Bubbas who do not understand the ways of the world.  They don’t realize just how bad Perry has been as Governor of Texas and how bad he’ll be as President.

Think about it… How much money do you have saved in your 401k for your retirement?  Are you going to need Social Security and Medicare in order to retire?  Yes?  Well, then don’t vote for Rick Perry – he says Social Security is a Ponzi scheme and he’s against the whole idea of it.  Now, I’m not saying that Social Security doesn’t need to be fixed – it does, but how can you trust a man who thinks it is unconstitutional to be the man who is going to save it?  You can’t.

And, don’t think for one second that Rick Perry is actually going to create good jobs.  His million jobs in a decade claim may be true, but the majority of those jobs are low paying and lowered the economic standing of a lot of Texans.

Don’t even get me started on his disbelief in climate change.

He signed the anti-gay pledge – a sure sign that God could tell me to vote for Perry and I wouldn’t listen.

A vote for Rick Perry is a vote against your own best economic interests.  So, if you don’t care about your economic standing, go ahead, vote for him.  If you want Social Security to be around when you retire, don’t vote for Perry.  Otherwise, go ahead – kill the middle class in this country by voting for him.
