Texas Governor Rick Perry gave his predictions on the Insiders.  Perry said he believed in protecting the rights of the individuals before the group as it related to a new bill going through Congress.  The Employment Non-Discrimination Act better known as ENDA is a bill that would prevent workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.  The topic is hotly debated because workers want individual rights protected at every level while some religious groups said ENDA would violate their religious freedoms.

Perry also said in the prediction round of The Insiders that he would not support the legalization of marijuana in Texas because he believes it to be an issue for the Federal government to decide instead of being left to the state.
