Many conservative Texans do NOT want Rick Perry to be President. He lost my vote when he deliberately defunded our highway system and persistently tried to ram his TransTexas Corridor and toll road agenda down the throats of Texas taxpayers. It represented double (and in many cases triple) taxation on roadways we had already paid for with our vehicle related taxes and fees, but the funds had been misused and diverted everywhere else except where they were supposed to go. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), who was responsible for a vast majority of these problems (and bears notoriety for its infamous 1.1 BILLION dollar accounting error several years ago), is Perry's "baby" who can do no wrong in his estimation and refuses to accept accountability for its actions. Incompetence, mismanagement, arrogance, and criminal conduct has REIGNED within that organization, all at the direction of Rick Perry, and he continues to appoint cronies there who will do his bidding. In reality, TxDOT vastly requires complete overhaul from the ground up.


People who have not lived here in Texas are oblivious to this fact, and because no one is confronting him with this in the debates and/or in the media, he is getting away with not having to address this topic which is quite a controversial "hot button" with those Texans who are not in Perry's hip pocket. He has managed to stay in office as long as he has in Texas, ONLY because conservatives were terrified of letting another Democrat get in, and he was considered the "lesser of two evils." In summary: We already have one arrogant "business as usual" politician occupying the White House now. We can do much better than Rick Perry in finding a suitable replacement.
