AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Some people yelled “secede” as Gov. Rick Perry today railed against the U.S. government. Perry appeared at Austin City Hall for an anti-tax “tea party.” Perry later told reporters that Texans might get fed up enough to try to leave the union – but he sees no reason to do so.
After praising veterans in the cheering crowd Wednesday, he said: "I’m just not real sure you’re a bunch of right-wing extremists. But if you are, we’re with you."
