    “So if it comes down to Perry or Obama, what will you do?”

    It won’t be easy. It would be like having to choose between which bullet to stand in front of… the one traveling at 2200 FPS, or the one at 1250 FPS. Either way my freedom is dead.

    Judging by my age and life circumstance, I think I’ll choose the faster one. Dragging out a slow death is useless.

    “While I still disagree with Governor Perry’s executive order, which he later rescinded”

    Allenah, do you believe in credible news? Or do you just regurgitate without fact checking? Sorry to be so harsh, I do admire your articles, but in under 5 minutes of fact checking on my own, I have debunked your assertion that Perry rescinded his executive order. That isn’t even close to the truth. Fact is, both Texas houses passed a bill to rescind the governors order. Facing defeat, Perry allowed HB 1098 to pass into law WITHOUT his signature. He NEVER rescinded his executive order, HB 1098 did it without his signing it.

    Fact string….

    22 FEB 2007: AUSTIN — A House committee handed a stinging rebuke to Gov. Rick Perry by voting to rescind his executive order requiring pre-teen girls to be vaccinated against a sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer. Passage is all but guaranteed since 90 of the 150 House members have signed on as co-sponsors, said the author of House Bill 1098, Rep. Dennis Bonnen.
    Perry spokesman Robert Black said the committee’s vote doesn’t change the governor’s position.

    14 MAR 2007: AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas House gave final approval on Wednesday to a bill blocking state officials from following Gov. Rick Perry’s order that schoolgirls be inoculated against the virus that causes cervical cancer. (Bill now headed to Texas Senate)

    Perry’s stance then: “I do not understand why we as a people would not take this opportunity to use this vaccine … to the benefit of our children,” Perry said late last month.

    25 APR 2007: AUSTIN, Texas (BP)–The Texas Senate easily passed a bill April 24 reversing Gov. Rick Perry’s controversial order requiring young girls to be vaccinated against the human papillomavirus, a sexually transmitted disease that can cause cervical cancer.

    10 MAY 2007: During a news conference on Tuesday, Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) announced that he would let HB 1098, which rescinds his order that all girls entering the sixth grade be vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV), become law without his signature.

    • Max, be as harsh as you like. For me, this is a non-issue, as it was resolved. Whether it was Perry personally or the Texas Houses, the fact of the matter it is not required. Is Perry not telling the truth on things? Quite probably. Is Romney not telling the truth on things? Quite probably. Is Bachmann not telling the truth on things? Quite probably (the mental retardation sob story… GIVE ME A BREAK!)

      As far as for me personally, I would do whatever I had to do- personal responsibility for me and my family- to do what I feel is right and necessary in our situation. Mandated vaccinations, education, whatever the situation. I can’t control or dictate the way other people handle their households. Yes, it IS still my choice, no matter the law! There is a VERY REAL POSSIBILITY that one day owning firearms will be against the law. So I will be breaking the law. I STILL have a choice, no matter what the law is. Again… THAT IS THE POINT of this article. Choices and consequences. Plain and simple.

      Quite honestly, no, I have not dug into all the legislation, the trail of when it started, who’s desk it went to, what changes were made, etc. So the bill was rescinded. It’s not law. Perry messed up. You see him as Obama in a mask. So if it comes down to Perry or Obama, what will you do?

      I will continue to stand by Newt Gingrich and (paraphrase)…. ANY of the candidates would be better than Obama!

      I think it is ABSOLUTELY GREAT that we vett these candidate- ALL candidates. UNLIKE the MSM, it is our job to do that! I do not expect everyone to agree with me on everything. Ask the hard questions. You are going to see things differently that I am, and vice versa. That’s the beauty of personal choices and free will.

      Keeping all of this in mind, one of my colleagues hit the nail on the head with this article: http://conservativedailynews.com/2011/08/the-holy-candidate/

      Conservatives, Libertarians, Republicans and Tea Party members alike would do well to take it to heart, as well as this one I previously wrote: http://conservativedailynews.com/2011/08/2012-election-will-require-much-wisdom-from-conservatives/

        I couldn’t let this logic go unanswered,

        “Max, be as harsh as you like. For me, this is a non-issue, as it was resolved.”

        How can glossing over the facts be a non-issue? Perry didn’t rescind the order! The purpose of “independent journalism” is to maintain impeccable integrity. By using your logic, gun control zealots should be summed up as people who “rescinded their agenda” when they lost the Heller v. D.C. case.

        Mimicking MSM isn’t a good idea. I’m just saying.

        • This article, this issue for me, is a non-issue for me- personally. I do not know how else I can explain it to you. There are many other things I do not agree with Perry on. This is not one of those issues. You call it glossing over facts. No, facts are facts, are facts. You stated the facts. He is not the one that rescinded, so, I was mistaken. I stated that no, I had not tracked down the information step by step by step in the legislative process as you have. Even knowing the facts you laid out- so, it’s not glossing over facts, it’s accepting your facts that you researched- this issue is still a non-issue for me. It is a personal thing. It is an issue for you. You have that right, just as I have the right for it to not be an issue for me.

        • I have made the correction to the news article regarding this, and have enclosed your links you provided. To quote Governor Perry from the last article link you provided:
          “It is time to move this issue from the political arena to the court of public opinion where real lives are at st[ake], and it is time to do so without delay.”

          Again… this is MY personal opinion. YOU have a different personal opinion as does every other person in America. As he said, the court of public opinion. If more people agree with you, he’ll be out of the race. If more people agree with me, then America will move on to other issues to question him on- like immigration. Otherwise, this Gardasil issue will remain the political 3-ring-circus it has become. the real test comes down to We The People as a collective. Who will win? Only time will tell.
