If Republicans are pro-America, how come they want to build infrastructure in foreign nations, yet oppose building America’s infrastructure? You can add Rick Perry to the long list of Republicans who feel that way. During the last GOP Debate, Perry said we need to stay in Afghanistan ￼￼to “continue to help them build the infrastructure that they need, whether it’s schools for young women like yourself, or otherwise.”
Never mind the fact that America’s own infrastructure is crumbling. Perry wants to spend billions of dollars on Afghanistan’s infrastructure, and at the same time, Republicans claim we can’t afford to build our own. President Obama’s plan would put Americans to work rebuilding America, yet Perry dismissed it as wasteful spending “guided by his mistaken belief that we can spend our way to prosperity. Like the president’s earlier $800 billion stimulus program, this proposal offers little hope for millions of Americans who have lost jobs.”

If you really love something, you take care of it, right? It makes sense that if you love your house or your car, you naturally fix it when it needs repairs. Apparently, that love doesn’t extend to the country. How many times have we heard how much Republicans love America? Apparently, Perry is fine with America spending our way to Afghanistan’s prosperity, but not with spending American dollars on our own people. And he has temerity to call himself an “American patriot”? Perry and the Republican Party don’t know the meaning of those words.
