God gifted each individual with reason, that anyone’s mind may soar to the heavens, like Galileo and the Wright Brothers.
Perry, a WIELDER of COERCIVE POWER, spurns God’s gift of reason. He does not advocate that individuals help themselves, but rather, he is of the kind that spouts: "Americans are helpless! We must repent! I declare a year of prayer and fasting!"
From wikipedia: Perry proclaimed August 6, 2011 as a Day of Prayer and Fasting. Earlier, he proclaimed April 22 to April 24 as "Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas" in response to the wildfires then covering much of the state. By late July, 75% of the state was experiencing exceptional drought conditions, as opposed to 10-20% in April.
Like his DARK-AGES moral descendants, Perry would Giuliani (i.e. Gestapo) Galileos, who proudly evince that God’s gift of reason is all-good. Perry is the candidate of DARK-AGES WARRIORS: the anti-mind/anti-reason, who crave to impose on rights respecters. The moral descendants of the persecutors of Galileo. Those who believe in a cruel god, one that imposes his will, contrary to the loving God's gift to man: free will.
In 2008, DARK-AGES WARRIORS scored a victory when Barack Obama's opponent, a speech infringer, anti-gun, anti-capitalism, whose hero is dedicated Antitrust enforcer Theodore Roosevelt, the first POTUS to endorse the income tax and the inheritance tax who also endorsed socialized medicine, chose a gravitas-free puppet of THEOCRACY WARRIORS as running mate. The country chose socialist Obama over the DARK-AGES WARRIORS.
In 2009, New York's 23rd Congressional District, held by the GOP since the Civil War, rejected DARK-AGES WARRIORS. - http://ilynross.blogspot.com/2009/11/theocracy-warriors-rejected-by-new.html
In 2011 for the 2012 presidential elections, DARK-AGES WARRIORS are ramming down a Roosevelt of the Theodore and Franklin kind who would burn Galileos at the stake: Rick Perry.
