    IDK if it's the end...that was probably after his 3rd debate...

    This quote ended his campaign:


    "If you say that we should not educate children who come into our state for no other reason than that they've been brought their through no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart."


    You can't say that and expect to be nominated in the Republican Party.

    I was not making a judgement on whether it was good or bad. It just simply is.

    It was the same during the first Republican Primary debate back in 2008 and Rudy said he was pro-choice. At that moment, I knew his campaign for the Republican nomination was over.

    I really kinda feel sorry for Rick after that. He seemed more of a human being, and not this tough talking Texan for once. He was looking to Paul for help, and he's been using his talking points for some time now, so at least he know good economic ideas when he hears them.

    But it's not a good idea to say you'll cut 3 departments to the guy who's plan cut's 5. Regognizing what's good and knowing what's good philosophically are two different things.

    Great comment on Facebook: "Perry is the Republican candidate for those who thought George W. Bush was just too cerebral". :p

    The point is: that statement ended his chances of being voted for by Republican voters. The republican base views this decision as a magnet for illegal immigration and Republicans HATE being called heartless for their policy decisions.
