[b][color=#000080]Rick Perry criticizes Federal Reserve as almost 'treasonous'[/color][/b]

By [url="http://content.usatoday.com/topics/reporter/Catalina+Camia"]Catalina Camia[/url], USA TODAY

[url="http://i.usatoday.net/communitymanager/_photos/on-politics/2011/08/16/perry%20x-large.jpg"][img]http://i.usatoday.net/communitymanager/_photos/on-politics/2011/08/16/perry%20x-inset-community.jpg[/img][/url]

GOP presidential hopeful Rick Perry has been heated in his rhetoric since joining the campaign.

GOP presidential hopeful Rick Perry is criticizing the Federal Reserve, suggesting the central bank is almost "treasonous" and that Chairman Ben Bernanke[color=#ff0000] would get an "ugly" reception in Texas[/color].

Perry's swipe at the central bank came Monday night at the end of his second full day of campaigning. Since entering the race on Saturday, the Texas governor has made a splash in the race for the GOP nomination and garnered headlines with his criticism of President Obama and his economic policies.

[color=#ff0000]"Printing more money to play politics[/color] at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous — or treasonous in my opinion," Perry said about the Fed at an event in Cedar Rapids.

When someone asked the Texas governor about Bernanke, Perry said: "I know there's a lot of talk and what have you about if this guy prints more money between now and the election. I don't know what y'all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas."

Perry's comment drew rebukes from White House press secretary Jay Carney and Tony Fratto, a former aide to[b] ex-president George W. Bush, who first appointed Bernanke[/b] to the chairman's post. [b][color=#ff0000]Fratto called Perry's comment about Bernanke "inappropriate and unpresidential" in a tweet sent out last night.[/color][/b]

[i]The New York Times[/i] reports that Perry spokesman Ray Sullivan said the governor "got passionate" about the Federal Reserve, but did not disavow the remarks. "He is passionate about getting federal finances under control," Sullivan [url="http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/08/16/perry-suggests-fed-is-almost-treasonous/?ref=politics"]told the newspaper[/url]. "They shouldn't print more money, they should cut spending and move much more rapidly to a balanced budget."

President Obama's former spokesman Robert Gibbs, meanwhile, hit back at Perry today and suggested Perry would soon "ask to see the president's birth certificate." Gibbs, appearing on MSNBC's Morning Joe program, said [b][color=#ff0000]there will be "crazy things" said as Perry, Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann "seeks to outdo each other to pledge allegiance to the Tea Paty to pick this nominee."[/color][/b]

After three years and only when it was politically damaging to continue hiding it, Obama released that one a few months ago.

Now we want to see his writings as adjunt law professor at the University of Chicago. All of them are under lock and key. Edited by Artaguito

Perry nunca ha perdido una elección, y sin usar los subterfugios que uso Obama en su primera elección y su elección senatorial. Me da lo mismo si sale Perry o Ronmey como el candidato, cualquiera de los dos ya a arrollar al marxista.

Ahí salio un poll de Rasmussen donde tiene a Perry 29%, Romney 18% y Bachmann 9%, donde Perry se beneficia del factor 'new kid in town' asi que estos numeros cambiaran.

[b]Perry's gifts: Boots, trips, medical exams[/b]
By: [color=#ff0000][size=2]Kenneth P. Vogel and Lucy McCalmont[/size][/color]
August 18, 2011 06:07 PM EDT [/size][/font][/color]

[font=arial][size=4]Cowboy boots — 22 pairs. Stetson hats. Belt buckles. Cuff links. A TV. Medical tests for him and his wife. Nine hunting trips. Dozens of tickets to sports games and concerts.[/size][/font]

[font=arial][size=4]Rick Perry earns a [url="http://www.stateline.org/live/details/story?contentId=565482"]$150,000 annual salary[/url] and has a blind trust. But he’s also received over 90 personal gifts — many of them from top donors and political appointees — during his 11 years as Texas governor, according to personal financial statements he filed with the state.[/size][/font]

[font=arial][size=4]The forms, obtained from the Texas Ethics Commission, only require officials to list broad value ranges for their assets and liabilities (in April, Perry reported that he owed between $10,000 and $25,000 for a loan to Mercedes-Benz Financial, and more than $25,000 each to Union Planters Bank and Wells Fargo). However, since gifts must be worth at least $250 to trigger the gift disclosure requirement, the total value of the 90 gifts Perry accepted during his governorship is at minimum $22,500, and potentially much more.[/size][/font]

[font=arial][size=4][url="http://www.ethics.state.tx.us/pamphlet/B11cit_e.htm"]Texas ethics rules[/url] allow officeholders to accept gifts, provided they disclose them, and Perry campaign spokesman Mark Miner told POLITICO, “All gifts are reported in accordance with Texas law.”[/size][/font]

[font=arial][size=4]Perry’s gift givers are also among his most generous campaign backers, putting at least $6.4 million in contributions from themselves and their families into his three gubernatorial bids, according to a POLITICO analysis of [url="http://info.tpj.org/reports/PerryJuly2011Update/Perry100kContributorsJuly2011.html"]data compiled[/url] by the watchdog group Texans for Public Justice. And at least 10 gift givers have gotten state appointments during the Perry administration.[/size][/font]

[color=#ff0000][font=arial][size=4]Take insurance company owner Phil Adams of Bryan, Texas, whom Perry appointed to the board of regents of Texas A&M University in 2001 and reappointed in 2009.[/size][/font][/color]

[font=arial][size=4][b][color=#ff0000]Adams has contributed nearly $290,000 to Perry’s gubernatorial campaigns. Between 2005 and 2009, Adams’s company at times employed one or both of Perry’s two children[/color][/b], then in their late teens or 20s, to do secretarial work. [b][color=#ff0000]And over the years, he’s given Perry, his wife Anita, and their children tickets to football and basketball games — including the 2007 Big 12 basketball tournament — and picked up the tab for their lodging and transportation to some of the games as well.[/color][/b][/size][/font]

[font=arial][size=4][b][color=#ff0000]Houston auto dealer Dan Freidkin, whom Perry appointed to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission, has contributed $715,000 to his campaigns and paid for a 2007 hunting trip for the governor and his wife[/color][/b]. Fellow Parks and Wildlife Commission appointee Dan Allen Hughes, Jr. footed the bill for Perry hunting trips in 2009 and 2010, as well as another trip of unspecified purpose last year.[/size][/font]

[font=arial][size=4][b][color=#ff0000]Other major political donors who’ve given gifts to the Perrys include San Antonio Spurs owner Peter Holt, who’s contributed $538,000 to Perry’s campaigns[/color][/b] and has also given the family at least four sets of tickets to the professional basketball team’s games. San Antonio biotech investor [b][color=#ff0000]James Leininger, who’s taken Perry hunting and given him Spurs tickets too, also has contributed $239,000 to his campaigns. Next up: he’s sponsoring [/color][url="http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0811/60599.html"][color=#ff0000]a retreat for the governor and his top donors[/color][/url][color=#ff0000] at the end of this month to plan for his presidential campaign.[/color][/b][/size][/font]

[font=arial][size=4]Aides have been generous too: Perry’s media consultant David Weeks has given the governor and his family tickets to a concert and football game, while top campaign strategist Dave Carney gave the governor a television and DVD player in 2003.[/size][/font]

[font=arial][size=4]Perry reported accepting “medical tests” or “medical assessments” in 2001 and 2010 from Dr. Kenneth Cooper of Dallas, Texas, an exercise guru regarded as the father of aerobics, and also in 2010 from Dr. Randy Hickle, an anesthesiologist who founded a state-of-the art primary care facility in Lubbock, Texas.[/size][/font]

[font=arial][size=4]Then there are the boots.[/size][/font]

[font=arial][size=4]Perry, his wife and children have accepted pairs from El Paso’s J. Robert Brown, a Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission member; Fort Worth auto dealer Roger Williams, who Perry appointed Secretary of State; oilman and major GOP donor Harold Courson; and real estate developer Fausto Yturria.[/size][/font]
[font=arial][size=4]But Perry’s most prolific boot-giver by far is famed Houston bootmaker Rocky Carroll, who has given Perry at least 10 pairs of custom-made boots since 1991, according to the filings, including a 2008 pair bearing the insignia of the Republican Governors Association, which Perry chaired until stepping down to run for president.[/size][/font]

[size=6][b]Bruce Bartlett: Rick Perry Is 'An Idiot' [/b][/size]

[b]Bruce Bartlett, who served as an adviser to Ronald Reagan[/b] and as a Treasury official under George H.W. Bush, called Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry "[url="http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2011/08/19/idiot-jab-lobbed-at-perry/"]an idiot[/url]" Friday, referencing negative comments the Texas governor made about Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke this week.

While campaigning in Iowa Monday, Perry said it would be "[url="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/16/rick-perry-ben-bernanke_n_927829.html"]almost treasonous[/url]" for Bernanke to print more money between now and the 2012 election. "I don't know what y'all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas," he said.

Bartlett reacted to the comments Friday during an [url="http://am.blogs.cnn.com/2011/08/19/former-treasury-official-bruce-bartlett-rick-perry-is-an-idiot/"]appearance[/url] on CNN's "American Morning."[color=#ff0000] "Rick Perry is an idiot, and I don't think anybody would disagree with that," Bartlett said[/color]. "The thing is, the politics of the Fed itself are really a more serious problem."

Perry has received backlash from more than just Bartlett over the controversial statements. Several former aides to President George W. Bush [b][color=#ff0000]have said Perry's comments prove he is not presidential material.[/color][/b]

Tu crees que es buena idea lo que dice Ron Paul de dejar que Iran construya armas nucleares? El es el mas originalista de todos y el mas que se alinea a mi politica fiscal, hasta que abre la boca y se pone a hablar de 9/11 o de aislar a EEUU der mundo. Tampoco en esta sociedad de American Idol puedes poner a un viejito chiquito en un debate con el espigado Obama, eso seria una Reeleccion automatica para el marxista.

El bando Bush nunca ha sido simpatizante de Perry y han tenido encontronazos en el pasado y saben que si Perry sale electo ninguno de ellos va a guisar en la proxima administracion. Esto no es nada nuevo.

[b] Seven ways Rick Perry wants to change the Constitution[/b]


Rick Perry has many ideas about how to change the American government's founding document. From ending lifetime tenure for federal judges to completely scrapping two whole amendments, the Constitution would see a major overhaul if the Texas governor and Republican presidential candidate had his druthers.

Perry laid out these proposed innovations to the founding document in his book, [i]Fed Up! Our Fight to Save America from Washington[/i]. He has occasionally mentioned them on the campaign trail. Several of his ideas fall within the realm of mainstream conservative thinking today, but, as you will see, there are also a few surprises.
1. [b]Abolish lifetime tenure for federal judges by amending Article III, Section I of the Constitution.[/b]
The nation's framers established a federal court system whereby judges with "good behavior" would be secure in their job for life. Perry believes that provision is ready for an overhaul.
"The Judges," reads Article III, "both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behavior, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services a Compensation which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office."
Perry makes it no secret that he believes the judges on the bench over the past century have acted beyond their constitutional bounds. The problem, Perry reasons, is that members of the judiciary are "unaccountable" to the people, and their lifetime tenure gives them free license to act however they want. In his book, the governor speaks highly of plans to limit their tenure and offers proposals about how to accomplish it.
"'[W]e should take steps to restrict the unlimited power of the courts to rule over us with no accountability," he writes in [i]Fed Up![/i] "There are a number of ideas about how to do this . . . . One such reform would be to institute term limits on what are now lifetime appointments for federal judges, particularly those on the Supreme Court or the circuit courts, which have so much power. One proposal, for example, would have judges roll off every two years based on seniority."
2. [b]Congress should have the power to override Supreme Court decisions with a two-thirds vote.[/b]
Ending lifetime tenure for federal justices isn't the only way Perry has proposed suppressing the power of the courts. His book excoriates at length what he sees as overreach from the judicial branch. (The title of Chapter Six is "Nine Unelected Judges Tell Us How to Live.")
Giving Congress the ability to veto their decisions would be another way to take the Court down a notch, Perry says.
[b]"[/b][A]llow Congress to override the Supreme Court with a two-thirds vote in both the House and Senate, which risks increased politicization of judicial decisions, but also has the benefit of letting the people stop the Court from unilaterally deciding policy," he writes.

3.[b] Scrap the federal income tax by repealing the Sixteenth Amendment.[/b]
The Sixteenth Amendment gives Congress the "power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration." It should be abolished immediately, Perry says.
Calling the Sixteenth Amendment "the great milestone on the road to serfdom," Perry's writes that it provides a virtually blank check to the federal government to use for projects with little or no consultation from the states.
4. [b]End the direct election of senators by repealing the Seventeenth Amendment.[/b]
Overturning this amendment would restore the original language of the Constitution, which gave state legislators the power to appoint the members of the Senate.
Ratified during the Progressive Era in 1913 , the same year as the Sixteenth Amendment, the Seventeenth Amendment gives citizens the ability to elect senators on their own. Perry writes that supporters of the amendment at the time were "mistakenly" propelled by "a fit of populist rage."
"The American people mistakenly empowered the federal government during a fit of populist rage in the early twentieth century by giving it an unlimited source of income (the Sixteenth Amendment) and by changing the way senators are elected (the Seventeenth Amendment)," he writes.
5. [b]Require the federal government to balance its budget every year.[/b]
Of all his proposed ideas, Perry calls this one "the most important," and of all the plans, a balanced budget amendment likely has the best chance of passage.
"The most important thing we could do is amend the Constitution--now--to restrict federal spending," Perry writes in his book. "There are generally thought to be two options: the traditional 'balanced budget amendment' or a straightforward 'spending limit amendment,' either of which would be a significant improvement. I prefer the latter . . . . Let's use the people's document--the Constitution--to put an actual spending limit in place to control the beast in Washington."
A campaign to pass a balanced budget amendment through Congress fell short by just one vote in the Senate in the 1990s.
Last year, House Republicans proposed a spending-limit amendment that would limit federal spending to 20 percent of the economy. According to the amendment's language, the restriction could be overridden by a two-thirds vote in both Houses of Congress or by a declaration of war.
6. [b]The federal Constitution should define marriage as between one man and one woman in all 50 states.[/b]
Despite saying last month that he was "fine with" states like New York allowing gay marriage, Perry has now said he supports a constitutional amendment that would permanently ban gay marriage throughout the country and overturn any state laws that define marriage beyond a relationship between one man and one woman.
"I do respect a state's right to have a different opinion and take a different tack if you will, California did that," Perry [url="http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/_ylt=Aoj04LDhjDWKXhekHvkgA4ObCMZ_;_ylu=X3oDMTB2ZWVzdXN0BHBvcwMyBHNlYwNNZWRpYUJsb2dCb2R5QXNzZW1ibHk-;_ylg=X3oDMTNjcjc2OXZuBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDYTg5ZjQ4N2QtODcxYi0zYjYwLWI4YjctNzQ4MzUxOWZiNzBkBHBzdGNhdANvcmlnaW5hbHN8dGhldGlja2V0BHB0A3N0b3J5cGFnZQR0ZXN0Aw--;_ylv=0/SIG=14qig0i4j/EXP=1315007276/**http%3A//blogs.cbn.com/beltwaybuzz/archive/2011/08/04/perry-comfortable-with-support-of-marriage-abortion-constitutional-amendments.aspx"]told the Christian Broadcasting Network in August[/url]. "I respect that right, but our founding fathers also said, 'Listen, if you all in the future think things are so important that you need to change the Constitution here's the way you do it'.
In [url="http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/understanding-rick-perry-views-states-rights-182814623.html"]an interview with The Ticket[/url] earlier this month, Perry spokeswoman Katherine Cesinger said that even though it would overturn laws in several states, the amendment still fits into Perry's broader philosophy because amendments require the ratification of three-fourths of the states to be added to the Constitution.
7. [b]Abortion should be made illegal throughout the country.[/b]
Like the gay marriage issue, Perry at one time believed that abortion policy should be left to the states, as was the case before the 1973 Supreme Court case [i]Roe v. Wade. [/i]But in the same Christian Broadcasting Network interview, Perry said that he would support a federal amendment outlawing abortion because it was "so important...to the soul of this country and to the traditional values [of] our founding fathers."

[color=#0000ff]Me reservo la opinion sobre la #4 ya que no se mucho del caso, pero siempre estoy a favor de que sea el pueblo directamente el que elija a sus representantes y senadores, aunque entiendo el argumento de que los 50 gobiernos estatales (el gobierno estatal en si y no el estado de por si) no tienen representacion directa en Washington ya que los legisladores de Washington son todos elegidos los los ciudadanos y ninguno de ellos responde a sus gobiernos estatales.[/color]
[color=#0000ff]No estoy de acuerdo con las ultimas dos bajo el principio de federalismo (alla los estados individuales que decidan si quieren gay marriage o abortos, y si no te gusta mudate a otro).[/color]
[color=#0000ff]Por supuesto estoy de acuerdo que Perry esta haciendo lo correcto e invocando el proceso de Enmiendas como especifica la Constitucion para promover esos cambios fundamentales, y no como hacen en subterfugio los liberales que legislan desde la corte que este de turno o en la legislatura ignorando lo que dice la Constitucion.[/color]

Esto es lo que quieren los republicanos para toda la nacion......:WAL:

[b][size=6]Texas Tax System Heavily Burdens Poor Residents [/size][/b]

During his presidential campaign announcement speech last week, Texas Gov. Rick Perry lamented the "injustice" that nearly half of all Americans -- the poorest half -- "don't even pay any income tax." But in Texas, the tax burden is disproportionately shouldered by those families living below the poverty line, newly-released data from the Census Bureau show.

While Texas is generally considered a low-tax state since it doesn't impose a personal income tax, [url="http://www.itepnet.org/pdf/tx_povertyday_0910.pdf"]a new analysis[/url] by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy finds the state's tax laws actually "[color=#ff0000]redistribute income away from ordinary families and towards the richest Texans."[/color]

[b][color=#ff0000]Taxes paid by the poorest 20 percent of Texas households -- those with incomes averaging $11,200 a year[/color][/b] -- are actually the fifth highest in the nation, even though none of those households make enough money to owe federal income tax.

"With poverty rates on the rise, the Texas tax system is actually pushing families further into poverty," said Meg Wiehe, ITEP's State Tax Policy Director.
According to the Tax Policy Center, three-fourths of the 46 percent of U.S. households that pay no federal income tax earn $30,000 or less per year. But those families pay the same share of gasoline taxes, payroll taxes, excise taxes, property and sales taxes as the wealthy, so they end up paying the government a larger percentage of their incomes.

Texas, in particular, is "extremely imbalanced" in its reliance on sales and property taxes, the report concludes. Even without having to pay income tax, the [b][color=#ff0000]poorest fifth of Texans ended up paying about 12 percent [/color][/b]of their income in taxes in 2009, ITEP reports.[size=5][color=#FF0000] [b]The wealthiest 1 percent of Texans paid only 3 percent of their income in state and local taxes.[/b][/color][/size]

Still, Perry appears concerned that the rich are carrying too much of the nation's financial burden.

"Spreading the wealth punishes success," he said during his announcement speech on Saturday, "while setting America on a course to greater dependency on government."

The distribution of wealth in America at the end of 2009 was [url="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/30/study-recession-hit-worki_n_842684.html"]the most unequal it's ever been[/url], with the wealthiest 1 percent of U.S. households having 225 times the net worth of the median household.

A Perry spokesperson did not immediately return requests for comment Friday.

Sales taxes.... Any idiot knows that sales taxes are proportional to consumption, not income. Your article just points out that the poor spend more of their income than the rich. Same data would accuse the poor of not saving or investing. As for income taxes, you have to look at deductions that are allowed under Texas, as well as federal law. Texas is notorious for its low income taxes for which I'm sure more than a couple of northeastern rich have established residence there.

Del articulo:
[color=#ff0000][i]According to the Tax Policy Center, three-fourths of the 46 percent of U.S. households that pay no federal income tax earn $30,000 or less per year. But those families pay the same share of gasoline taxes, payroll taxes, excise taxes, property and sales taxes as the wealthy, so they end up paying the government a larger percentage of their incomes.[/i][/color]

And that's why they don't pay federal income taxes. Do you also want to make a progressive scale for sale taxes? Will we have to show our present level of wealth and proof of annual income at the register at Walmart or the supermarket so the cashier can assess the correct tax rate?

If a rich person buys the exact same toaster a poor person buys, would the rich person's toaster last longer or work better than the poor person's toaster? (remember, the same toaster). Then why should the rich person pay more sales taxes for it?


And if the state of Texas is so bad for poor people compared to liberal bastions, then why so many people, rich and poor, are moving to my state? The proof is in the pudding and the best statistic is the mobility of free people around the nation individually looking for the best conditions for their families. Edited by Artaguito
