Governor Rick Perry

What did you all think of Gov. Rick Perry's day of Prayer and fasting? Did it work? Did you hear him tell ABC news that he is praying for Economic Prosperity? Not healing of hearts, but economic prosperity. What do you all think of this?

Jed, you didn't answer the question.
---NurseRobert on 8/18/11


Obama professes to be a Christian, and attends a Christian church. Yet you judge him to not be one based on his statements. None of us would survive if judged by strict Biblical standards.

Exodus 21:22-25:
"If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him, and he shall pay as the judges determine.
And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,
Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe."

Murder merits death - but causing a miscarriage (abortion) was just a civil tort.
---StrongAxe on 8/18/11

Strongaxe, If you think Obama is a christian, you have sadly mistaken what a christian is. Obama said at a Forum hosted by Pastor Rick Warren that to know when a baby ought to have human rights it is "above his pay grade," but he is very clear that a baby can be killed anytime, even after it is born. He said "The first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. This act will stop states from restricting abortions of any kind, even partial birth abortion." On four separate occasions Obama has voted against bills that prevented the killing of infants that are born alive, having survived an attempted abortion. Do you think this is the Bible's stand on abortion?
---Jed on 8/18/11

Obama has also publically recognized, honored, and praised the religion of Islam with a big speech on every single mulism holiday since he has been in office. That's right, he hasn't missed a single one. Even reciting in perfect arabic, muslim prayers. He has however failed to do the same for any christian holidays including. Now, I'm not saying he is a muslim, since he doesn't claim to be. But is that what a christian person does?
---Jed on 8/18/11


Just where and when did Obama mock christianity and the bible? Especially since he and his family are Christians themselves?
---StrongAxe on 8/18/11

It's sad when our country exalts a president who mocks christianity, the bible, and christian values but put down a governor who asks people to submit to Jesus' commands to fast and pray. Perry didn't tell anyone NOT to pray for the healing of hearts. He simply asked people to pray for our economy. What's so wrong about that? What's wrong with asking people to take our problems to the Lord rather than the white house?

He was Al Gore's Campaign Manager in Texas. ---John on 8/16/11

Such a typical rightwing misdirection....

Thats like saying conservative godhead Ronald Reagan was a RINO becuase not only was he a democrat but also the president of a large, left wing union.

It doesn't surprise me. Right wingers can't even agree on what conservatives should be. You and Michelle will go a long way together.. right up to the time you loose the nominiation.
---NurseRobert on 8/17/11

When you look at Perrys record, he's a Liberal RINO. A wolf in sheeps clothing.

---John on 8/16/11

Aren't we all praying for an improvement in the econonomy?
Shouldn't our candidates pray as well?

The truth is the economy depends on the policies, not personalities, of those who govern. Obama, and apparently most people here, don't understand that the private sector is what grows the economy.

Over-regulate and/or over-tax business... the economy slumps. Nearly every piece of legislation signed by this pesident, including the health care bill, has hampered private business (or businesses fear it will). Almost every speech he makes is anti-business. Business owners and execs can't expand their companies on uncertainty. Some say they are just waiting for Obama to leave so their companies can grow. These people vote, too.

shira3877: "steveng, I don't know who "you people" are but I don't think conservatives voted obama into office."

People, even conservatives, voted Obama into office by future promises, hope and change, not what he truly stands for and his political background. Investigative reporters, including myself, tried to look into his background, but it was too late. He spent about three million dollars to hide his school papers, college papers, birth certificate, and any other legal papers. I don',t know how qanyone voted for a person that has a secret background.

Besides, the bible says beware of wolves in sheeps clothing can also be applied to democrats in republican clothing.

John, are you aware that to vote in this Iowa straw poll, one had to pay $30?

Are you aware that Michelle Bachmann spent over $180,000 to pay for people's voting tickets?

And even so, instead of getting 6,000 votes, she didn't even get 5,000?

In other words, she couldn't even get all the votes she paid for.

Think about it!

You people are the same type of people who voted for Obama. Do you people ever check into the past political history of these candidates? Here are a few background info: Rick Perry endorsed Rudy Giuliani for president in 2008, he supported the construction of infrastructure for the North American Union, he allowed Chinese front companies to set up shop in Texas, did not become a Republican until 1989 and served as Texas chairman of Al Gore's presidential campaign in 1988, he is weak on immigration issues. these were take from an article written about him a couple of days ago.

Read every article out there concerning Perry vs. Bachmann. You will see not a single negative about Perry nothing but accolades and how great he is, then they start bashing Bachmann.


Because the RINOs are now replacing Romney with Perry to appease some conservatives, he is the NEW Republican Establishment choice to be crown. Romney is out.

They will do and say anything they can to get rid of Bachmann. Because she is the true conservative and frankly many of the old fuddy duddy Republicans don't want a woman in the White house.

So now you know who is the real McCoy

I think Michelle Bachman is a great asset to the Republicans - she makes Sarah Palin seem like a moderate.

\\Did it work? \\

And just what do you mean by this question?

So many Americans expect instant results. American Christians merely transfer this to the spiritual realm, and expect instant spiritual results.

If Gov. Perry's prayers and fasting were acceptable to God, who knows what fruit it may bear down the line? It might even be "working" now, but invisibly to us.

Thank you for the support, Stongaxe, but I'm sure Paul was "just joking".

There are those on this site who continually complain about Obama and policies of his administration, but have no qualms of turning this country over to an ultra conservative with beliefs that are way outside of what the majority of people.

When its all said and done, the majority of people, both from the right and the left, will see Bachmann for who she really is.

You said to NurseRobert:
Are you allowed to self medicate?

Perhaps the discussion would be more fruitful if it dealt with the subject at hand, rather than pure personal attacks?

While I'm not terribly fond of the economic situation right now, I'm even less fond of the flagrantly reckless economic and foreign policies of the prior Bush administration that caused it in the first place, and would definitely prefer 4 more years of this, rather than 8 new years of that.

I read a book by a Leftie in USA exposing the thought control of Leftist dominated mainstream media. She got criticised for exposing this. Everthing in her book about U.S media also happens here in Australia.

And welfare handouts here are ruining the Aborigines.

Our Leftist government even paid $300,000 of our taxpayer funds to charter a private jet flying illegal immigrants to a funeral for loved ones who died attempting to enter Australian borders.
The Leftist Government claimed doing this on compassionate grounds BUT they cut back medical research funding that can save lives and needy Australians are not offered the same compassion.

You think it's the left who is draining the working class? Rather, it is the policies of the right that are eliminating the middle class altogether. With tax cuts for the rich, the rich stay rich, while many in the middle class are losing their homes, being forced to take two jobs, losing their jobs, and being forced onto the welfare roles.

It's easy to be rich. It's easy to stay poor. But it's getting harder and harder to be anywhere in between nowadays.

John asked:
"What is the latest with the Aborigines?"

An Aborigine in Australia can be white, brown or black. Yes, a predominantly white mixed race person can claim Aborigine status.

Welfare payments, housing, etc, have been thrown at them for many years and yet their problems continue. The Leftist welfare/nanny state mentality has made things worse for them.

But then the Lefties need such alleged "victims" for their own political profit. They then claim to be on the higher moral ground deserving of voter approval.

The Left and it's deceit are the greatest threat to Australia.
I suspect the same is the case for the USA.

---Haz27 on 8/13/11


I live in the United States, so my experience is mostly with media here, rather than in Australia. Fox News is quite popular here.

I tend to rely little on media for opinions (because both sides are biased), but I tend more to come to my own conclusions based on the facts. If I see a media clip of some politician (liberal or conservative) putting his foot in his mouth, it's obviously that it's his foot and his mouth, regardless of any media bias.

Our AAA rating is because of a booming mining industry exporting to China. But our mineral/gas reserves will run out in 30 years and then the boom ends.

For decades governments have thrown money at Aboriginal problems and still were unable to fix it.

As one conservative politician stated, "Welfare is killing the Aborigines". She was then vilified as a racist through Leftist media for saying this.
But 6 months later an Aborigine said similar and the Leftist media hailed him as some great insightful man.
Such is the deciet of the Left.

The Left aren't interested in truth. It's all about political gain through deceit. Sadly the Left is destroying our country too.
---Haz27 on 8/12/11

FYI the majority of Australians get their news, etc from Free-to-Air TV, Newspapers and radio so Fox news has little influence compared to the Leftist media.

I wouldn't be surprised if Fox news is just as biased as the Leftist mainstream media.
But it was you who was attacking conservative politicians based on the Leftist media's propaganda. Our answers to you about the Leftist media propaganda are valid and you know it.

Regarding the Aboriginals, again you are following the deceitful Leftist propaganda. Be open minded to truth. I can assure Aboriginal history for the Left is a VERY political issue for their political gain and not an objective search for historical truth.

And right-wing media (like Fox News) paints liberal politicans negatively. Pot calling kettle black.


Yes, sure the U.S.A. was founded on "Godly principles". See how they put these principles in action when dealing with Native Americans - U.S. government broke every single treaty they made with the sovereign nations that already lived on this continent, forcibly deported them from their fertile lands in the east to the useless barren desert wastelands in the southwest, so they could steal those fertile lands for themselves (so much for not lying and not coveting).


And the early white Australians treated the Aborigines with pretty much the same respect.

MY PEOPLE refers to those type of people...that's why I'm so opposed to calling for a day of prayer for ECONOMIC RECOVERY for what? What do we expect God to do? Send money out of heaven?

You can spin it any way you like - and you can accuse the liberal media of spinning it any way they like. The fact remains, she DID say all those things she said. There are recordings of her saying them. She often puts her foot in her mouth. So does Sarah Palin. So did George W. Bush. There are also Democrats who do the same thing, but they aren't running for president.

(BTW, I used to tend to favor Republican politicians - until George W. Bush ran for president. Every time I heard him speak, it sounded like he was engaging his mouth before engaging his brain. There were one or two occasions during his administration when it sounded like what he said made sense, but those were exceptions rather than the rule.)

Michelle Bachmann frequently makes public statements that are laughably off-base.

In April 2009, she said:
"I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another, then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence."

She recently gave a speech in her hometown Waterloo Iowa praising homeboy John Wayne and wanting to return to John Wayne's America. But the John Wayne born from Waterloo was NOT the Duke, but John Wayne Gacy, serial killer.

I certainly would NOT want someone with such an inattention to detail making national policy, and with her finger on the Button.

We got ourselves into this mess and we want God to get us out of it, why? To do it all over again?

When there's no real repentence, the same sin will be repeated. United States is scared, that's why all of a sudden a Governor is calling for prayer. Why weren't they praying all along? Why isn't it being called a day of Repenting? And asking the Lord, "What do you need Lord? Feed your people Lord?

Once we line ourselves up with God's vision for Israel, feed his hungry people, then God will meet out needs.

Rick Perry looks like a good solid politician so far. As far as praying for economic prosperity he is the governor of a state that has been successful at creating jobs in a very tough economy and under the worst drought in a very long time if not history. As a politician economics and having a successful state is his passion. The same passion as King Soloman or King David praying for the success of Israel. Also like Beck's rally, Perry wanted to create unity not division among people. Jesus said, "I did not come to bring peace in the world but a sword." God works in supernatural ways so hopefully someone at the prayer or around the nation remembered God because of it and are returning to God or become aware of his presence.

I think it is wonderful of him. Texas is hurting for jobs and work. They already had to cut a lot of people in education forcing teachers who had the time to take an early retirement. Cities are cutting down on the budgets and lots of other problems. God Bless him for knowing where his and the States help is. I must praise the man for being mature spiritually enough to know the power of fasting and prayer. For a leader to seek God,for the people he governs,in a time of need is exactly the kind of Christian I would want in office. Oh that we had all our National leaders as dedicated to the people and God as Rick Perry showed by doing that.

I agree Cluny, I also find it somewhat irritating that no matter how simple or small a matter seems to be, there's ALWAYS someone there to criticize the actions of others.
Give it a rest anon, just be grateful someone's encouraging people to seek God for help.

According to the Bible, if you have unrepented of sins, God will NOT hear your prayers. I believe that America needs a National Day of Repentance, because we have turned from God, and made ourselves, money, etc. our god, and we have turned against Israel and the Jews. The Bible says if we would humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways, then God would heal our land. It all starts with individual and national repentance.

Rick Perry, like anyone else, has the right to pray and fast for whatever intention commends itself to him.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
