It seems that not only did Perry want to take parental rights away from Texas citizens, by MANDATING every female child attending public school age12 and above receive a controversial HPV vaccine, he decided to pass a Texas version of the "Dream Act" that would encourage illegal immigration into his state by providing a "resident rate" to the children of undocumented workers. Here is an excerpt from a speech Governor Perry gave during the border summit in August of 2001:
As a compassionate state, we know that for our children to succeed, they must not only be healthy, but educated. The future leaders of our two nations are learning their fractions and their ABC’s in classrooms all along this border. Immigrants from around the world are being taught in Texas classrooms, and our history is rich with examples of new citizens who have made great contributions. We must say to every Texas child learning in a Texas classroom, “we don’t care where you come from, but where you are going, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get there.” And that vision must include the children of undocumented workers. That’s why Texas took the national lead in allowing such deserving young minds to attend a Texas college at a resident rate. Those young minds are a part of a new generation of leaders, the doors of higher education must be open to them. The message is simple: educacion es el futuro, y si se puede. (emphasis mine)The above, along with Perry's problem of separating church and state, and a long list of other issues, are not the ingredients one would put into a candidate that would successfully unseat President Obama.
To Answer my own question, "How do I spell Rick Perry's Presidential aspirations?
