Texas Governor Rick Perry is a reincarnation of the late white racist Alabama Governor George Wallace who was hell-bent against the US Supreme Court ruling that was a Federal Mandate that made public school integration the law of the land. He figures that he can stay in the national spotlight by denigrating poor Texans inability to afford healthcare thus being framed in the national media as the right-wing ultra-conservative Republican Party’s anti-poor juggernaut in holding off accepting the implementation of Obamacare.
Perry figures that poor folks will not have the wherewithal to upend his media grandstanding with tomfoolery antics to encumber Obamacare. Yet Perry may be guaranteeing the Democrat Presidential candidate a win in the 2016 General Election for he is underestimating the growing potency of the Hispanic vote in the nation. President Obama’s 2012 victory showed that nonwhite voter unification around a common cause will work together in the Democrats favor.
Consider that President Barack Obama beat Republican challenger Mitt Romney by 3,287,967 popular votes. President Obama got 332 to Governor Romney getting 206 Electoral Votes with 270 needed to win the Presidency. Although one can lose the popular vote and still win with the Electoral Vote, Republicans must be mindful of the rising tide of Hispanic voters in Electoral Vote rich Texas with a 38 percent Hispanic population.
It is estimated that 50,000 US Hispanics turn 18 every month meaning the 2016 General Election may see 2.4 million new Hispanic voters. The last thing Republicans need is to find 90 percent of these new voters going for Democrats.
My guess is Rick Perry has concluded with the help of the ultra-rightwing Tea Party Republicans (KKK) he does not have to worry about the growing Hispanic vote because his backers are quietly building a yesteryear style South African Apartheid governing system with white minority rule. Therefore, the mainstream media must not become a venue Perry and the other Southern governors looking to punish their constituencies by refusing Obamacare showing that they have a de facto civil war underway against the Central Government of the United States of America.
Perhaps, Rick Perry really sees himself as the reincarnation of Jefferson Davis who was President of the Confederate States of America during the US Civil War. Thus, Perry is recklessly determined on making states’ rights the mainstream governance psyche of today’s United States of America.
