Since I’ve returned home I’ve been following Election 2008 news practically nonstop. It began with Romney’s “Faith in America” address the morning after I returned, and yesterday the coverage continued as the candidates made statements on the death of Benazir Bhutto. I don’t follow sports too much, instead elections are the games I love to watch. Each day brings new chances for candidates to mess up and opportunities for them to jump ahead. The Iowa caucuses are just a few days away, then New Hampshire, and then all the candidates will be in South Carolina for the last early primary before February 5.Many of you know that I currently support Mike Huckabee for the Republican nomination. After sifting through the candidates his views most aligned with mine and I’ve been with him since late in the summer. At that point, everyone dismissed him, just as they did until about November, but now he has gained momentum and he has a great possibility of winning the nomination. Please talk to me for more information on why I support him, but here is the short: He has the most executive experience out of all the candidates (10.5 years Governor of Arkansas, Chair of National Governors’ Assoc.), he holds consistent conservative views on social issues, he supports the FairTax, he has a realistic plan to solve our immigration problem, he is electable against Hillary or Obama, and finally he will bring this nation up rather than split us apart.
“I’m a conservative, but I’m not mad at anybody about it. I’ve learned that you don’t have to give up your own convictions, but you do need to be willing to have an open mind, spirit and heart toward people who are completely different from you.” – Mike Huckabee
It is really an injustice for me to sum Gov. Huckabee up in a few sentences. Please take some time to research his stances on the issues, and watch more videos of debates, speeches, and interviews so you can decide for yourself.
