“The enemy of my enemy is my friend” is an ancient Arabian proverb that I believe may benefit those who supported a candidate who did not succeed in the 2010 Primary Election.
I recently saw a blog post that said, “If you are not supporting Perry, you are not opposing White – a liberal supporter of abortion on demand, gay marriage, sanctuary city for aliens, cap & trade, and gun control.”
I believe that is a powerful statement. If you really believe the things you say you do, how can you refuse to support Governor Rick Perry? Your standards are not what you say they are; they’re what you demonstrate by your actions.
If you agree with the premise that the enemy of my enemy is my friend, I would encourage you to at least temporarily set aside your differences (real or perceived) with Governor Perry. We can argue the merits of our opinions after we defeat our common enemy.
When the Indians are attacking, it’s time to circle the wagons. It is not the time for a family squabble.
How well do you know the enemy? How much do you know about Bill White?
Did you know Bill White, the former mayor of Houston –
supports gay marriage?
supports abortion on demand? (Helped developed an “Abortion Supercenter” in Houston.)
supported making Houston a “sanctuary city” for illegal aliens?
opposes the 2nd amendment? Read this.
opposes tort reform?
supports Cap & Trade?
Heard enough? Watch this.
I believe we have four choices:
- Vote for Perry.
- Vote for White.
- Vote for some third party candidate that cannot win, or
- Don’t vote.
With which of these four choices will Texas best be served?
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Is your opposition to Perry stronger than your opposition to White – I certainly hope not.
