More evidence that the indictment of Gov. Perry is a coordinated Democratic political strike at a potential Republican presidential contender.

Battleground Texas sent out this fundraising letter within hours of the announcement that Perry had been indicted.

They couldn’t beat him at the ballot box. So the Texas Democrats will try to put Rick Perry in jail.

Not only is a coordinated strike, it's preemptive. Gov. Perry has been writing editorials in national publications, travelling around the country and giving speeches in several states. In other words, he's been working systematically to build a base outside of Texas. That was what he lacked in the last election. He's also gaining experience in how to run a nationwide campaign. And he's learning how to appeal to voters in other states.

The Democrats are afraid of him, and they should be. Because if he keeps doing what he's doing for the next two years and runs a serious campaign in 2016, he could very well win.

The single most important issue to the vast majority of voters is the economy. Perry is very strong on that issue and vastly more experienced than any of the other potential Rupublican candidates whose names are being bandied about.

Immigration policy and border security will also be an important issue, not only in November but in 2016 as well. Sending the National Guard to the border was a smart move that gathered Perry a lot of support.

Therefore, he must be stopped. The Democrats are desperately trying to smear him, as they did DeLay, and also to distract him because what he's doing is working.

But this indictment is a cynical ploy that is ridiculous on its face. There is no law that says a governor cannot publicly announce that he will veto a bill and then later veto it. And there is no law that says a governor cannot call for the resignation of a public official who had been arrested for drunken driving.

Besides, this fund raising letter is full of false allegations and frankly libelous accusations. I doubt it will raise much money. Nothing is going to turn Texas blue.

Abbot, Patrick and Paxton are all going to win and win big. And Perry will then start seriously planning a national campaign for the Presidency of the United States. And could easily be elected.

As President Obama considers circumventing Congress to slacken off U.S. immigration policy, a Reuter’s poll is showing that 70 percent of Americans are acutely apprehensive that illegal immigration is threatening this nation’s culture, values and the economy. The excuse is that Congress cannot agree on comprehensive immigration reform or amnesty as its objective, This President is using pressure to act alone in the coming few weeks through an executive order to give work permits to five millions or even 8 million illegal aliens and delay some deportations.

The House of Representatives and Congress should stand for the principles of our nation; the rule of law, our sovereignty and the US constitution. Instead of sitting back and not doing anything, the population should demand that lawmakers sever the Congressional Purse for this administration that is committing acts of betrayal. However we THE PEOPLE are as much to blame for returning incumbents back into Washington, so they forever deserve the same indifference to the countries laws. THE CONGRESS HAS THE POWER OF CUTTING OFF FUNDING TO ANYTHING THAT STINKS OF CORRUPTION, ABUSE AND GOVERNMENT OVERREACH.

FUNNY THAT GOV. RICK PERRY HAS BEEN INDICTED FOR ABUSE OF POWER, BUT SO FAR PRESIDENT BARACH OBAMA HAS GIVEN THE FINGER TO THE RULE OF LAW AND THE EDICTS OF THE US CONSTITUTION? MAKES ME WONDER IF THE OBAMA NOT CARING FOR PERRY DEPLOYING THE NATIONAL GUARD TO THE ALMOST NON-EXISTENT BORDER HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS? IS THIS AN ERIC HOLDER ‘WITCH HUNT?’

In a September report of last year from the Census indicated that 11.7 million illegal aliens are residing in the U.S, which to me is BS. How can they balance statistics on tracking illegal aliens, when unknown numbers were never enumerated, when these people hide within family households? Then has Americans ever bothered to read the massive statistics on murders, rape, assaults, child molestation or any number of odious violations, including a daily harvest of DUI’s, and slaughtering people on the highways that stay out of the media headlines, including welfare costs that are in the hundreds of billions of dollars. Other unpublished data is the illegal aliens that are deported, and time after time return to commit mayhem.

There is a HUGE disparity with the mass migrations of last century and now. The difference is that past immigrants went through the immigration offices; Ellis Island or Galveston when they got off ships and trains and stood in long lines at the immigration offices answering loads of questions and obtained their papers. They learned English and studied hard to become a U.S citizen. They were happy and proud to be here, presented with the opportunity to live their dreams. These new immigrants start off by breaking our laws, crossing into our nation and then insist on speaking their native language and demanding having interpreters to be provided by the government; they do nothing to become a legal citizen. DO NOT compare the past immigrants with these new ones have no respect for America, no respect for our culture, no respect for a traditional values, and certainly no respect for our laws.

ALWAYS REMEMBER THE DEMOCRATIC MAJOR MEDIA ARE SO BIASED THEY WILL TAILOR THE TRUTH TO FIT THEIR OWN AGENDA?

These are some of the most urgent laws that need to be employed to stop the flow of illegal aliens, that’s if the majority of yellow backbone House of Representatives use their power to cut of the funding purse to this monstrous sized Obama government:
1. Resurrect the 2006 Secure Fence Act and build the double layer fencing, complete with concertina razor wire.
2. Reinforce the border with National Guard and add more Border Patrol Agents permanently.
3. Deploy more internal ICE agents to audit employers, instead of 5000 for all of the United States.
4. Amend the law so illegal entry into the US becomes a Felony.
5. Issue a National digital Social Security Card for voting, and to identify that person.
6. Revisit the 14th amendment, thus amending the automatic citizen law, so ONLY the babies of US citizens can claim this right; (A huge expenditure for taxpayers.)
7. Make it a more serious offense for employers to hire illegal aliens, with prison.
8. Amend the 2006 human trafficking act, so it’s aligning with Mexico and Canadians.
9. Introduce a uniform Guest worker program, with entry and exit permission and unless mitigating circumstances are available, overstays have committed a felony.
10. Only legal immigrants with Special high level skills can be admitted permanently.

ONLY THE NATIONAL TEA PARTY HAS THE GUTS TO SPEAK OUT ON ALL THE ISSUES THAT HAS AN INCREDULOUS COST TO US TAXPAYERS; ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. VOTE FOR THE REPUBLICANS NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND REMOVE THE DEMOCRATS. WE CAN THEN ERADICATE THE GOP ELITISTS LATER?

Not to nitpick, but (from oxforddictionaries.com):

Although off of is recorded from the 16th century (it was used by Shakespeare) and is logically parallel to the standard out of, it is regarded as incorrect in standard modern English.

The dems want to take out Gov. Perry, but this could also be an indication that they’ve given up on Wendy Davis.

Message to dems: your vaunted legions of illegals may not be simpatico with your Obama inspired radical agenda for Texas. But the bigger problem you have politically is that many of them don’t vote at all unless the candidate’s surname is Hispanic. Did a light just go on dems?

Perry is also the only potential nominee who has military experience.
We need a Commander in Chief who has military experience.

Every governor that has ever been elected anywhere would get indicted if Gov. Perry's actions are crimes. It is just a political ploy to get "Perry = criminal" in the minds of potential voters. They'll have very selective media coverage that will all be slanted and edited to sound the very worst for Gov. Perry and then when he is let off these ridiculous charges, they'll make it look like it was due to back room deals and foul play.

Democrats tried this in Wisconsin too with Gov. Walker.
Abuse of process for political ends is a Democrat specialty.
Democrats are shameless, dishonest and untrustworthy.
As someone said,
"Democrats are a criminal gang disguised as a political party."

They'll look just as thuggish as they did with DeLay...except most people won't be watching.

Perry should push to go to trial now, while it is a front-running story. That way the absurdity of the charges, the smear campaign, is evident to everyone.

I don't know- the media has effectively shown that it's wrapped around the progressive finger (or is it the other way around?) so people aren't going to be able to NOT see it in some capacity short of cancelling their cable or satellite.

On both the election year front as well as the border "security" front. Currently Texas is mounting a border surge to deal with Obama's engineered incursion so it's feasible that there's politically engineered compliance with the federal campaign to destroy this country through the depletion of its handout programs and burdening its health care system.
