A Simple Government - President Mike Huckabee

I am going to Des Moines tomorrow for Mike Huckabee's book signing. His latest book, "A Simple Government" is sure to be a best-seller, and if you haven't bought it yet, what are you waiting for? The book simply makes sense. Mike Huckabee has great ideas to solve the problems this nation is facing.

We need a simple government. We need Mike Huckabee to be our next president.

Now More Than Ever!

Yesterday, moral conservatives were delivered another blow to the values we hold dear. Is there any doubt we need true conservatives in office? We are in a battle for our nations very existence. Am I suggesting that if our nation does not uphold traditional values we will cease to exist? No, I am coming right out and saying this. I believe our great country could fall without one single shot fired by our enemies. We are being destroyed from the inside out. The family and traditional marriage are under attack. If our families can be obliterated, we will not be able to stand.

I have mentioned in this blog, and several others ,why I so firmly believe Governor Huckabee is the person we need to lead our country. He has such an impeccable record of fighting for the values that are critical for the preservation of our great nation. Huckpac is making a real difference. Governor Huckabee does not simply support candidates that are sure winners, as some PAC leaders do. No, he helps conservative candidates win! Every dollar donated to Huckpac is money wisely invested. Governor Huckabee is on a mission to help take our country back. He is doing the right thing. Our country needs authentic conservatives serving at every level of government. I have stated on numerous occasions, how much I hope and pray Governor Huckabee runs again for POTUS. Until then, I am going to work to get conservatives elected. Our country is facing some real difficult obstacles. No one person can solve them alone, not even our ingenious Governor Huckabee. We all must do our part, now more than ever!

We Must Do the Right Thing

I apologize for not blogging for some time. I must admit, once Governor Huckabee withdrew from the race, I lost my enthusiasm for politics. I could never bring myself to support Senator McCain, as he does not represent my values like Governor Huckabee does. The Republican Party has lost its way, and was taken to the woodshed like it deserved. Unfortunately, that means a liberal Democratic controlled White House and Congress.

I will be praying for President-Elect Barack Obama and his family, along with our elected leaders in Congress. After all, Barack Obama will be our next President, like it or not.

It is important for the Republican Party to recommit themselves to conservative principles. First and foremost, we must be the party that values each and every life. I think rather than touting that we are a "big tent" party, we need to be a party that stands up for pro-life, family value positions. We need to promote limited government and individual achievement. One way to do that is not penalize productivity. That's why we need to implement the Fair Tax. We also need to cut wasteful spending. The members of Congress who supported the bailout should be fired. I am flabbergasted by the number of Republicans who supported this robbing of the taxpayers to give to the rich. We need to protect our nation's sovereignty. That means protecting our nation's borders and not providing amnesty to illegal aliens. Seven years after 9/11, very little has been done to protect our borders. It is crucial that we be an ally and a defender of the nation of Israel. If we stand by our convictions and do not waver, I strongly believe the votes will follow.

We must do the right thing. We need to have a conservative movement in this country and become the force of the GOP. By this, I mean true conservatives in every sense of the word - not just morally liberal capitalist pigs. We need to retake Congress in 2010, and we need to elect a Huckabee Republican to the White House in 2012.

The old-guard GOP has been taking moral conservatives for granted for far too long. I am no longer willing to vote for the "lesser of two evils." I have drawn a line in the sand. I am a Huckabee Republican.

Yes, No, Not Now

It looks like the answer to our prayers is" not now". Over forty hours later I still feel as though I am in shock. I can only imagine how Governor Huckabee must feel. What a journey this has been. To go from a virtual unknown candidate that polled as an asterisk to one of the top two. What a testimony to the person Governor Huckabee is, and the way he ran his campaign. Thank you Governor Huckabee! What an honor and a privilege it was to be a small part of it. He has forever changed the political landscape. The so-called experts are still trying to figure it out. They never will.

What happened? We all know that the Huckabee campaign was the most under funded and understaffed in the history of Presidential campaigns. What the campaign lacked in money they made up for with message. What they lacked in paid staff, they made up for that as well ,with an a super-staff where each person did the work of at least five people and an army of volunteers that nobody paid to love Governor Huckabee. What was difficult to overcome were the constant lies and distortions by the media and talk radio. The Fred factor in South Carolina handed a win to McCain. The rumor that was purported by Sean Hannity and FNC hurt us in Florida. I have never seen such an abuse of power in my life. To say that Governor Huckabee had "pulled out" of Florida ,when he was campaigning there almost every day. I feel sick to my stomach when I think about this. Who could forget the "two-man race" falsehood? After Super Tuesday, voters were continually bombarded with the "mathematically impossibe to win" falsehood. I don't think it is possible for all of the media outlets to be quite that ignorant. Despite all of this, people still continued to vote for Huckabee. Just think what would have happened if the people would have just been allowed to vote without the interference from those in power. The media elites, GOP elites, and so-called Christian leaders did the American people a great disservice in this election.

What's next? We can pray that there is some sort of upset within the next six months. I am sure that Senator McCain cannot defeat either Senator Clinton or Senator Obama. A few things make me believe this. The Democrats are very motivated to win back control of the White House. I think this has been demonstrated by the high turnout during the primary process. In order to win an election the base of the party must be energized. Senator McCain doesn't motivate us values voters. We will have a hard enough time simply voting for him. We will certainly not do the hard work required to get him elected. Historically, when a moderate-liberal Republican goes up against a Democrat, the Democrat wins. Unfortunately we are living in a time where the stakes are very high.

So we look to 2012. I hope and pray Governor Huckabee will make another bid for the White House. Our nation so desparately needs the type of leadership he would provide. I know he will help restore some of our nation's greatness. Actually, he already has. I know that hearts were changed by Governor Huckabee's contribution to the political process. I know we have a long way to go as a country. Despite all the things that went on during this political season, I can't help but believe that we are on the precipice of a dramatic change within the GOP and more importantly our nation.

In the meantime, we should get involved in the furthering of pro-life, pro-family, conservative policies. We need to help elect people who believe in the sanctity of human life, tradtional marriage, less government, the Fair Tax, and other conservative causes. If there isn't anyone running that share these values and are willing to fight for them, then we need to get off the sidelines and get involved and run ourselves. We must reclaim our culture! I have drawn a line in the sand, I will never again, vote for the lesser of two evils. I will never again sacrifice my principles for anyone's politics. I am a Huckabee Republican.

We can still be victorious!

I am sure everyone reading this has felt some disappointment over the last eight days. I know I have. I am writing to encourage everyone to keep fighting the good fight. The only way we are guaranteed defeat is if we quit. The media does not want us to know how possible it still is for Governor Huckabee to get the nomination. The majority of states that have yet to vote are quite conservative. Senator McCain is not exactly known for his conservatism. Governor Huckabee is an authentic conservative. We just need to keep McCain from getting 1191 pledged delegates. Then off to St.Paul we go. If the chances were as remote as the so-called experts say, do you really think Governor Huckabee would be getting all this pressure to get out of the race? The answer is a resounding no!

We need to give to the campaign like our life depends on it. If you are not a Ranger yet, please sign up and become one. Tell all your family and friends about Governor Huckabee. Do not let them be deceived into believing this is over. I would encourage every supporter to join a local Meet-up. We still can get the truth out to the people. We can not leave this to the media. They have failed us!

Will it be easy? I doubt it will. Is this one of the best investments in our nations future we could make? I absolutely believe it is! Can we still be victorious? I unequivocally believe we can! I am not putting my pom-poms down!

Kansas Victory

Yesterday, my family and I made the trip to Hiawatha, Kansas, one of the caucus locations. We got up at 6 AM and were on the road by 7. It took a little over 2 hours to get there. The parking lot was nearly full when we arrived, and it was still a half an hour until the caucus started. There were almost 200 people in attendance.

At the caucus, I had the privilege of speaking on behalf of Governor Huckabee. I spoke for about 8 minutes, covering many of the major points of Governor Huckabee's platform. I yielded the floor to a supporter I had met when I arrived, who spoke about the importance of having a man in the highest office who seeks the wisdom of God daily. Another gentleman spoke for a minute after that. His great grandmother was a slave, and he mentioned how a wonderful Republican president in Abraham Lincoln led the way in abolishing the atrocity of slavery. He then went on to say that he believed another great Republican president, Mike Huckabee, could be the one to lead the way in abolishing the holocaust of millions of unborn babies. My ten minutes was almost up, but one more gentleman had one thing to add. He told the crowd that this election was far from over and gave examples of brokered conventions the Republican party had in the past where the nominee went on to win the general election.

There were many Huckabee supporters who came, and there were even more when the truth was laid out before them. The total vote at this location was Mike Huckabee 121, Ron Paul 28, John McCain 11, Mitt Romney 6, Alan Keyes 5, and Fred Thompson 1. I had two people come up to me afterwards, saying they switched from McCain to Huckabee. I don't know if there were others who changed their minds, but at least I know I made a small difference. Many people thanked me for making the trip to Kansas. It was a great experience for me.

I know that we can all make a difference. There are more people who know the name Mike Huckabee now than when the campaign began, but not everyone knows about him, and even people who have heard of him do not know about his great vision and moral clarity. We neeed to continue to get the word out. After all, the media hasn't been doing their job lately. So whether it be talking to people you know, doing sign waves, passing out literature, participating in the phone bank, we need to all do our part. Last but not least, don't forget to give what you can, and don't forget to pray.

My Weekend in Missouri

I apologize for not blogging at all lately. I've been quite busy doing grassroots work for the campaign. I assisted in making phone calls before Iowa. My husband and I even represented him at two of the precincts. I have also called voters in South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. I can't believe it's been only a month since the Iowa Caucuses.

I wanted to encourage my fellow Huckabee supporters to do everything they can to spread the word about Governor Huckabee. As we know, the media has already written him off and isn't helping out. They've written his political obituary - again. I hope my story of this past weekend will be encouraging to you.

My family and I left early Saturday afternoon to drive to Missouri. Our first stop was in St. Joseph's. We approached people outside of a local mall, handing out information regarding Governor Huckabee. Most of the people we talked to had not decided who they were voting for, and they seemed receptive of the information we provided. We then went to Kansas City to attend a Mike Huckabee meetup. We shared our experiences and our opinions, and everyone who was there is strongly committed to Governor Huckabee's candidacy. Out of everyone there, not one single person would choose Romney as their second choice. So much for the spoiler theory! It was wonderful to meet those who attended. Perhaps we'll see you in Nebraska just before we get our turn to vote!

On Sunday, we attended church in Platte City, a small town just north of Kansas City. We received a very warm welcome. A kind gentleman even gave us "umbrella service" to keep us dry, as it was raining/snowing/sleeting outside. It was a wonderful time of worship coupled with a powerful, uplifting message. I spoke to the pastor prior to the service regarding the AFA Voter Guide. I only had one copy printed out, as I didn't have a chance to make more copies. He didn't say anything about it until near the end of the service, but what he said surpassed my expectations. He said that there were two people visiting who were campaigning for Governor Huckabee (my husband and me). He told everyone he wasn't telling them who to vote for, but as American citizens it is our obligation to vote. He went on to say that as Christians, we must vote our values and our conscience. You and I know that even though he didn't say "Huckabee" he meant Huckabee.

That afternoon, we went back to Saint Joseph's to do a sign wave. Since it was Super Bowl Sunday, we figured a busy intersection next to a grocery store would be a good location. We found a Wal-Mart Super Center, and decided that was a good location. Even though our feet got wet from the snow on the ground, our hearts were warmed by the many positive responses we received. We had lots of waves, some thumbs-up, and several people honked their horns in support. Compared to the hundreds of positive reactions, we received maybe only a half-dozen negative responses. I think it's safe to say Missouri likes Mike. Let's hope and pray that they like him enough for him to win on Tuesday!

If anyone is reading this from Missouri, Governor Blunt is dead wrong in his assertion that a vote for Huckabee is a vote for McCain. Shame on you, Governor Blunt! The fact of the matter is, a vote for Huckabee is a vote for Huckabee. (Interesting concept, isn't it?) The same goes for all the other states as well - a vote for Huckabee is a vote for Huckabee. So let's all vote for Huckabee!
