    No most are not, but all illegals need to be stopped and arrested, serve time and deported. :)

    I could see Free now working for INS - he would go into churches and round up the illegals and drop them off at the border.... :)

    And Perry is the man who says he wants to make the Federal government insignificant in the lives of Americans ... but he certainly accepts money from them for Texas. Now he probably should, but it is hypocritical to run on the philosophy of basically reducing it in size so it can help no one ... or is he simply trying to impress some for votes?

    Freeatlast,
    Did Gov. Perry beat you up sometime? You really have it out for him.

    :laugh:

    So, are you saying that a church should shelter criminals? And that a church should be a safe haven from the law?

    No not at all. In fact it is possible I could vote for him depending on what I see in the coming months or not vote for anyone at all if I feel they are all in the same boat.
    However I just want everyone to know that to date he has been a fraud and a do nothing governor who has one agenda and that is himself and his policies are as the wind. We never heard about his so called deep religious beliefs until he decided to run for office. He is clearly a slick politician. I hope he is in the process of change but to date he has not shown it.

    Hate to burst your bubble, Free; apparently, Texas did use some of the funding for the National Guard.
    Source: http://www.lbb.state.tx.us/Federal_Funds/Other_Publications/Homeland_Security_Funding_Texas_1108.pdf

    Also, National Guard posting along the border was in place as recent as June 2011: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4324249...uard-border-deployment-extended/#.TmUvDJFWPuQ

    So: Looks like Perry has deployed National Guardsmen to stop illegals.

    Wait; didn't you say you lived in Texas? How come you don't know this?

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry has deployed Texas Military Force helicopters to the border, but he has not deployed the Texas National Guard to the border

    Which is your non-admission admission that you don't know but assume that I can prove it for you.

    No thanks, I don't do Crabby's homework assignments and I won't do yours either. :laugh:

    You keep saying this.

    I keep asking.

    You keep avoiding the question.

    What is his AGENDA?

    In detail please.

    But not holding my breath. :laugh:
