Rick Perry's Down Fall

Republican Presidential canidate Rick Perry is seeing issues due to his stance on immigration. The biggest issue is the fact that he passed a bill that allows illegal emigrants to go to college at the same low price as in state students.  
While last night Perry did not have to deal with it during the Debate, it is not expected to go away. 
This issue has taken away his thunder as the front runner of the Republican Party. Mitt Romney really has hit him hard. 
The reason that they think that it did not get brought up last night was because Romney was unable to make it to the debate.  
Dallas County Board of Supervisors Kim Chapman said "If you are here legally, you're entitled to the benefits offered to the residents of this county, but if you are an illegal, I don't think you should get them." 
Perry does have more of the Hispanic voters on his side. They fear that in order for him to win that he will have to take a stronger stance on emigration which would hurt him with the Hispanic community. 
We will just have to wait and see how much his policy will hurt him in the long run.

The New Guy In Town

There is a new Political Party in town and it goes by the American Elects. They are hoping to get a on a ballot near you.
What does this party stand for and what are their plans for their candidate?
There is no leading man or women that has appeared yet. However there is one thing that they do know. They are not far left or right when it comes to politics.
Even though they have no foreign policy, economic plan or social agenda.
What really makes this group interesting is that they solely use the internet to do the jobs that they need. Anyone can vote on their ballot process next April as well.
They are trying really hard to get on the ballets in the country and they are going to have a hard time getting on some around the country.
The hardest ones to get on will be California, North Carolina, Texas, Indiana and Georgia. In California alone they need 1,030,040 signatures they have 354,000.
The problem with them stating that they are in the middle is that both Republicans and Democratic will cannot be to left or right they need to be more center oriented to win. These American Elects will have there work cut out of them.
