under the Lone Star
AUSTIN Gov. Rick Perry joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state, Gov. Perry said. That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.

Perry continued: "Millions of Texans are tired of Washington, DC trying to come down here to tell us how to run Texas."

If they did not do this what else would they do? More time to raise taxes.

I heard this on the Hannity radio show. Then some nut case liberal calls in and starts yakkin about how these Tea Parties were UN-American. The guy was saying anyone who attended these were Anti-America. WHAT A DORK!!!

I loved it when Hannity called him a Liberal Nutcase and hung up on him. I was calling the guy the same thing before Hannity did. I wish Hannity could have let him answer Why it was un-American to hold these tea parties, but the Nutcase kept reading his liberal talking points, so Hannity had no choice but to hang up on him.

Actually, a tea party is how America started. I'm going to mine, even if I get a little wet. My Gadsden flag is in the trunk and ready to go!

The more I hear about Texas, the more I want to move there...

The funniest part was when Hannity asked him if the original Boston Tea party was un-American, the guy said he didn't care about history...

The conservative that these groups should bring don't normally cause trouble (Physical Damage, disrespect for the authorities), it will be the liberal nut cases that come to yell their venom at the conservatives that will be the problem.

I purposely took my .38 out of my truck this morning since I'm hoping to make it by one of ours today. We've got one at lunchtime and then a rally dowtown this evening. Wouldn't want to be armed at a political rally, ya know... wink

As with any large group, there will surely (shirley?) be some nut cases mixed in. I'm gonna go ahead and place my bet that most media coverage of these events will be focused on the lunatic fringe.

I agree the Main Stream Liberal Media will try to down play the size of this, and wil focus on any "bad" events they can.

I am sure and hope Hannity will focus on the liberal nuts who try to disrupt and cause trouble.

Not sure, but I think JJ was referring to Hannity as "the lunatic fringe".
