    Perry is miles ahead of Obama?

    Who is Governor of Texas?

    And who is sitting at over 50% approval, in his 2nd term as President?

    If Texas were to secede,--it would become the strongest country in the world, and the USA would be crushed without its tax revenue.

    Say what you want about Rick Perry, but he's miles ahead of Obama.

    How could we have been so stupid as to allow someone OTHER than the brilliant Rick Perry to be elected president? Now remind me - WHICH executive departments am I in favor of eliminating???

    I'm in Texas, and yes, it's common knowledge of Californians moving here, as well as Arizona, Utah, Idaho, and Colorado. People from New York buy property here, and Florida, because we have less taxes, and a lower cost of living.

    These two states have failed elected leadership, and many can't afford living there, so they are moving out. These two states have the highest taxes, and the most people on welfare.

    We can learn something? Forget it. I don't hear Governor Perry telling successful people to pay more taxes.

    Texas has a better economy then the rest of the country put together. There's a reason for that.

    Thanks worf, for showing why people in utah are 'great'....

    Who claims that every one in NY and California is moving to Texas...?

    Just you. Once again, without any evidence or supporting statements.

    Why is Texas afraid of people from New York and California?

    Maybe you can learn something...

    Wow! Texas not for:

    * abortions
    * gay marriage
    * state income taxes
    * gun control

    Why are Californians, and New Yorkers getting away from their elected officials, and moving to Texas?

    Please don't bring your political views here.

    Limit religion in the conversation. Further proof you libs have little regard for the constitution.

    Actually polls are back and forth on support or opposition to abortion. Most people oppose unlimited abortions. You should lay off the msnbc koolaid

    Texas is, Texas does. What do we expect. They will teach that the Earth is 6000 years old in school and that abstinence works every time.

    Too bad abstinence doesn't work every time it's relied on, just every time it's accomplished, which is rare now days.

    Poll after poll shows that 40 years after Roe vs. Wade, a clear majority of Americans support abortion.

    And Rick Perry, is against it.

    This is how the GOP faded into absurdity.

    This is not even a winning proposal in heavily right leaning Texas.

    As long as prevention in the first place plays a huge role in this.... I am all for it. We need to focus less on the treatment for the problem, and worry more about preventing the problem in the first place.

    Setting aside the question of whether a newly-fertilized egg is a human being -- a question of philosophy and religion, not science -- if the State of Texas wants to minimize abortion, they would do well to increase sex education so as to reduce the number of pregnancies getting started due to ignorance, and make contraception inexpensive and readily available to anyone having sex. While the people attending these "pro life" rallies may indeed be delighted that they gave birth rather than ending the pregnancy, those events aren't attended by people who found unintended pregnancies to be a path to permanent poverty and hardship.

    Healthier attitudes towards sex and contraception, including limiting the role of religion in the conversation, would go a long way towards preventing unwanted pregnancy.
