Perry's "Honorary Mexican"
Selling out America for Hispanic votes
Politico -- September 3   
Rick Perry's pro-immigration Texas base
"...Governor, the Houston Hispanic Chamber just named me an honorary Mexican..."
    As Mitt Romney starts to turning to an immigration contrast with Rick Perry, the Texas governor's own supporters are highlighting his stands on that topic that may not wear well with a majority of early-state Republican activists.
    Politico's Ken Vogel passes along an e-mail sent by Perry contributor Norman Adams that contained a separate e-mail from Steve Hotze, also a Perry bundler based in Texas. Both e-mails make donor solicitations that underscore Perry's position helping to kill a bill similar to the Arizona immigration legislation, for instance.
    The upshot is that these are not necessarily positions that either primary and caucus voters know about Perry, or that will sit well with them. [...]
    From e-mail: "I was delighted last evening when the Governor looked across at me called my name and did not shoot me! Instead, he grabbed me by both arms, and of course, I grabbed him. I told him, Governor, the Houston Hispanic Chamber just named me an "Honorary Mexican" and I am here to tell you, if you will help us, Steve Hotze and I will lead the charge getting the Hispanic vote!..."

Americans do have the right to own guns   
Some paranoia is justified. Are American gun owners paranoid? Yes. Is someone out to get them? Yes. Personal liberty and guns go hand in hand.
