Perry Says Social Security Is Unconstitutional

Knowing the repercussions of the alienating the older bloc of voters, The Gov’s campaign staff has been working hard this past week to soften and even reverse The Gov’s position on Social security. The Gov’s Communications Director Ray Sullivan told the Wall Street Journal last week, that the contents of Perry’s book were not meant to reflect the governor’s current views on how to fix Social Security.

But yesterday during a campaign stop in Des Moines, Iowa , The Gov.was asked “But should states-rights supporters be worried that, as governor you said that Social Security is not something that falls in the purview of the federal government, but in your campaign, have backed off that?”  Showing his true colors as a far right wing secessionist teabagger he replied “I haven’t backed off anything in my book. Read the book again, get it right. Next question.”

The Gov’s book, “Fed Up” which was released just last spells out clearly his position on Social Security. The Gov  writes that Social Security is by far the best example of a program violently tossing aside any respect for our founding principles and that we have Social Security at the expense of respect for the Constitution and limited government.

At the campaign stop The Gov. was asked that in light of his Communications Director’s statements, should states rights supporters be worried that his views on Social Security have shifted now that he’s running for president. The Gov flippantly dismissed his Communications Director’s comments, declaring “I haven’t backed off anything in my book. Read the book again, get it right.”

Voters need to really look at Perry’s views.  The Gov spews his disdain for the government of the United States, has called for Texas to secede for the United States, is in deep with the Dominionist Christians who want to turn the United States into a Theocracy like the hell holes such as Iran in the middle east.  We need to really look close and see if this is the type leader we want shaping the future of this great country.

  1. I love this liberal rag. You rag on the good Govenor for anything he says or does. He said clearly that folks like me on Social Security have nothing to worry about and I take him at his word. I worked hard and earned my social security checks. Why should I have to pay for all the liberal socialists on welfare who want to get a free ride on welfare and then social security. And the young folks have good jobs thanks to the govenor and won’t even need it anyways. If i had made enough money I would have rather had been able to put it in the Stock Market and would be alot better off now than on social insecurity.
