James Richard Perry = Two (2)and Life Path = Four (4)
Rick Perry = Six (6)
03/04/1950 = Attraction = Four (4)

[Get full tiers and word patterns for numbers on my post entitled, What the Numbers Represent. To save space, I won’t add them all here, but will mention them as they come up in analysis.]

This analysis is lengthy and complex due to the number of scandals associated with Governor Rick Perry that need documentation for legitimacy. I did not mention all of his scandals. Search "Rick Perry scandals" to expand on what I cite herein.

Life Path and Attraction Equals Four (4):

Rick Perry’s Life Path number of Four (4) is to be (Victory Made) over personal animus, so not to (Do Venom) to others, i.e., vindictiveness is its negative trait. Being (Made Victorious) over personal animosities is through being (Moved) to change so to be free of stubbornly-rooted personality flaws. Outwardly, Governor Perry seems an affable guy when getting what he wants. His campaigning style, however, is to attack and disparage opponents using what he must think is colorful language. With two Fours (4) his determination for winning is great. If he were on the positive side of Number Four (4), he would not resort to these tactics, but would rely on merit.

Four (4) in his Subconscious Attraction number gives Perry extra deeply-rooted impetus to succeed at his endeavors. Success feeds our sense of well-being and ego. When dissuaded, deterred, or thwarted in achieving enterprises, a negative Four (4) of (Do Venom) on this tier can resort to vengefulness. Perry’s comfortable use of scathing language shows he easily adopts meanspirited tactics for winning. Already, Perry’s bulling assaults on President Obama and fellow GOP candidates, shows arrogant disrespect.

Perry’s tongue lashings aren’t limited to opponents. He called out-of-work Texans "drug addicts" who didn’t need an Unemployment Insurance (UI) stimulus because, "This is exactly how addicts get hooked on drugs." The source was the Austin American-Statesman. He turned down federal unemployment insurance funds when he was hyping succession. These remarks against financially struggling citizens seem craven to promote an agenda, especially when he takes stimulus monies for his projects and lives lavishly. He uses this language against out-of-work Texans while bragging that Texas has one of the highest employment rates.

According to Noelle Bell of the Huffington Post, Governor Perry found himself embroiled in "sneaky" land transactions. She reports that they garnered him more than a million dollars while serving in public office. Also, according to Bell, an alleged reputed international arms dealer is the kind of guy that Perry looks to for help in maintaining his fancy lifestyle.

The Dallas Morning News found evidence that a series of professional and personal favors enhanced Perry’s investments. These favors came from friends, campaign donors, and the head of a Texas family who has a history of political power brokering.

During the 2010 election for Texas Governor on Political Live Journal, opponent Bill White revealed Perry’s payoffs to contributors with appointments and favors.

Many ambitious people, especially those in sports have Four (4) as Significancy numbers. They apply the (Made Victorious) aspect that, for these numbers, is for positive psychological growth. Yet, people take advantage of its winning ways for material success.

According to Wikipedia Perry comes from a Democratic family. His father was repeatedly elected as a Democrat to the Haskell County Commission. Perry himself won his first election to the Texas State House in 1984 as a Democrat. Perry was considered an effective legislator. He won reelection in 1986 and 1988 before switching parties to challenge Democratic Agricultural Commissioner Jim Hightower in 1990. Hightower was a popular Democrat, but whose staffers became embroiled in a bribery scandal, making Hightower vulnerable to a challenge. Did Perry switch parties for political expediency?

Perry served as Al Gore’s Texas campaign manager in his 1988 presidential bid, but changed his stance on global warming. Suggesting he'd seen the light on the climate issue, Perry took a snipe at his once friend, Al Gore, "I certainly got religion. I think he's [Al Gore] gone to hell."

People can have genuine changes of ideologies. Perry’s timing raises questions. While running for president, he still espouses the conservative line. However, according to him, scientists who promote global warming are merely corrupt, and only doing so to enhance their professional careers and pocketbooks. He does not accept that different opinions can genuinely exist, but only attributes the worst motives for believing in global warming. Is he projecting his motives onto others? Perry’s comments come from someone with his financial scandals. The text and audio for his speech are on www.blogs.abcnews.com.

Original Birth and Subordinate Conscious Name Directions:

James Richard Perry equals Two (2) as his original Conscious Direction number that represents (To Be Constant), through being (Backed) and supporting others in (To Back) and (Back It). This is also for ideals, not just relationships. Yet rumors persist about Perry’s fidelity and sexuality. No evidence is found to support that Perry’s wife has threatened to divorce him without court filings, www.opednews.com reports. Others think, however, that these rumors are vicious partisan politics to hurt Governor Perry politically. Both parties use low tactics for winning.

In one speech Perry adamantly opposes Government spending, the next, he is suing the Federal Government for monies. This tendency may be in part due to his original Conscious Direction Name of Two (2), showing that he can be indecisive and (Take Back) decisions.

The tier (Moved) of Four (4) in Perry’s Attraction and Life Path numbers helps diminish the indecisiveness of the (Take Back) aspects of Two (2). He is sticking to the points in his book, Fed Up. Liberal pundits feel, however, this is to appeal to the Tea Party to get the nomination.

Fidelity to ideals may not be Perry’s long-suit though it is not necessarily a bad thing to be able to change outdated ideas for better ones. (Constant, To Be) seems more problematic for him regarding ideals than personal relationships of (Constant, Be Two). The (Take Back) aspect of Two (2) breaks promises for various reasons. Some are from being uninformed. When getting older, people do become less idealistic than in youth. Other reasons, however, are less altruistic, but for the advantage of personal gain.

According to Talking Points Memo, "Yet another anti-stimulus GOP governor, who had been hinting previously that his state would be turning down cash, is now accepting the money. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who co-wrote an op-ed piece with South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford about all the things that were wrong with the bill, has now informed the White House that he'll accept the money. Perry is, however, leaving the door open to not taking all of it, as he doesn't want to spend money that would expand existing social programs, and thus trap him into having to continue the increases later on with state money. . . ."

On 08/25/11 My San Antonio of www.mysanantonio.com reported ongoing political bickering involving federal funding for Texas schools. Democrats fired back Thursday at Gov. Rick Perry and Republican colleagues in the House and Senate. Democrats accuse Perry of trying to use $830 million in federal education funds to replace state funds as Texas grapples with budget deficits. Perry accuses Doggett of adding an amendment to require future funding, "It's time for Congress to eliminate the anti-Texas Doggett amendment." Perry said in a statement earlier this week, "And for our hardworking teachers and schools to get the $830 million they deserve." Texas Democrats wrote Perry, saying, "Repealing the amendment would only indicate that your desire is to use federal aid simply to replace state educational dollars as was done in 2009." Democrats say the state used $3.25 billion in emergency education funds in 2009 to replace state funding, ". . . thereby denying an opportunity to support improvements in the quality of public education." Education is another issue where Perry talks out of both sides of his mouth.

Rick Perry equals Six (6) for his subordinate Conscious Name Direction. Six (6) is easy to resolve. One gains his or her desires by developing the intelligence of (Fox) or uses (Fox Of) nature that deceives others for gain. One may use its opposite (Of Ox) nature that works hard at manual labor to get needs met. Politics does not require hard manual labor, though people often use politics to gain power. When on the positive side of Six (6), one is earnest and works hard.

No doubt Rick Perry uses guile to outwit opponents. The Burnt Orange Report has a list of Rick Perry’s Top Ten Failures. Much includes covering up improprieties and bad decisions.

(Ask For) is a negative word pattern of Six (6), i.e., showing one is dependent on material comforts for validation so has developed an insatiable appetite.

According to The Huffington Post, [Texas] is facing a budget shortfall of at least $11 billion. Nevertheless, Governor Rick Perry spent almost $600,000 in public money during the past two years to live in a sprawling rental home in the hills above the capital. This was according to the Associated Press. The Huffington Post, says that the five-bedroom, seven-bath mansion costs more than $10,000 a month in rent, utilities, and upkeep. Perry spent more than $130,000 in campaign donations to throw parties, and many other services since he moved in. All this while Perry asked state agencies to cut their budgets by 5 percent. The Republican House speaker considered furloughs and shortened workweeks for state employees while the Governor’s lifestyle is extravagant.

From the website, Back to Basics at www.backtobasicspac.org, in 2006, Perry ordered all Texas schoolgirls to receive a controversial new vaccine against HPV, alarming parents and the Texas Legislature. Details surfaced about connections between Perry’s staff, campaign contributions, and the drug maker Merck.

If Rick Perry’s Six (6) rested in his Subconscious Attraction, denial would be his burden. However, it is in his subordinate Conscious Name Direction number, meaning he intentionally uses deceit to gain. His record speaks for itself. The Internet is saturated with Rick Perry scandals.

Wednesday, 08/24/11, Ed Shultz on his MSNBC show, The Ed Show aired tapes of Perry talking about being the "Education Governor" when he was first running for that office. Comparing that tape to a recent tape as he runs for President where he talked about getting rid of the Department of Education and promoting Charter Schools. His record on education is that he cut billions of dollars from its budget and hundreds-of-thousands of teachers face layoffs.

Comparing the two tapes, Perry’s Bushy swagger and twang bordering on sounding just as stupid did not seem to exist in his earlier incarnation. The more intense Perry campaigns for President, the more pronounced his caricature of George W. Bush becomes. Other times when he appears caught up in the moment, he forgets his folksy twang.

Governor Perry’s extreme views are not likely to win him the general election. Especially when restating comments as he did recently that Social Security is a ponzi scheme, or that he is going to make federal government inconsequential in people’s lives. These statements that play to the Tea Party are just not realistic for a general election. Is he going to tell independent and moderate voters that his pandering was just politics? Doesn’t he regard voters as sophisticated enough to discern lies when they hear them? His pandering seems hypocritical. He has shown that he selectively uses federal monies when it suits him.

Even more unsettling than Rick Perry, are the television and radio pundits who called him the front runner after receiving only 4.26% or 567 votes at the Iowa Straw Poll. In one report, this tied him with Mitt Romney who didn’t campaign in Iowa, but who showed a mere 3.37% with the same number of 567 votes. Huh? Without waiting for pesky polls, pundits immediately put Perry in the top three when he was near the bottom. Adding those few hundred from write-in votes from the stunt by Stephen Colbert using "a" rather than "e" gave him a mere few tenths more percentage. * Perry still didn’t fall in the top three, not qualifying him for such elevation.

Do some pundits want Perry in the general election to ensure Obama’s reelection? Are some, positioning Jeb Bush, who declined to run, but by comparison seems a sensible alternative to both Perry and Obama? Or, are Jeb and his political family willing to sit it out until 2016 with no incumbent to run against?

Are media pundits pushing Perry for reasons of self-interest? They really must believe negative news is more profitable than positive news. If we had a president, who really made the country better, do they think there would be nothing interesting to talk about?

Try it. We might like it.

* One report had Governor Rick Perry winning 718 votes at 3.62%, including write-in, using "a" rather than "e" if counting Stephen Colbert’s stunt. Governor Mitt Romney had 567 votes at 3.36%.
