Is Governor Huckabee Conservative Or Progressive ?
The Patriot Statesman ^ | 4-21-2011 | Anthony Devar

Posted on 04/22/2011 6:35:39 AM PDT by BillKneer

Voters everywhere are asking the same question: Is Governor Huckabee a conservative or a progressive? Progressivism is a modern marketing package to hide the fact that someone is a liberal. Since liberalism has lost popularity among the voters, this shrewd marketing plan was created to rebrand liberals as “progressives” so some voters might be fooled into voting for someone they would otherwise not support.

To find out whether Governor Huckabee is a conservative is simple. Look at his platform and his principles. When he ran to become the nominee of The Republican party in the past, he was the only leading candidate who proposed a system called The Fair Tax. Mike proposed eliminating all income taxes, social security taxes, estate taxes, gift taxes, capital gains taxes, alternative minimum taxes, corporate and small business self-employment taxes, and Medicare payroll taxes. He proposed simplifying the tax system so dramatically that there would be no more need for the IRS. In principle, he believes the Government should serve the people rather than cause them to experience great pain and paralyzing fear like many experience at tax time. By shutting down the IRS, he wants to make politicians focused on serving their constituents within limited Government constitutional boundaries.

Does that sound like any kind of progressive or liberal you have ever heard? Simple Answer: NO!

He could probably be described as a nannyCon or a big Government Republican. Just the statement on this article alone that the government should ‘serve’ the people shows this disconnect. The government’s primary role is to defend individual liberty. It isn’t here to rule nor serve us.

I’m not sure what he is. He doesn’t sound conservative to me. He sounds like a politician who is willing to pile on conservatives. His approach is to rip on a true conservative so as to sound fair when he makes his conservative case. His method reminds me of Hatch, McCain, or Graham. And that tirade of his was just plain stupid. It was like the old saying, “Thou protest too much.” - Shakespeare.

When you’re in Arkansas and get hit 20% or more on a restaruant tab for taxes, you can thank Huck. He raised more taxes than any other gov.

He says one thing, then turns around and says something else. Liberal hiding behind a conservative facade

Well, first, attacking the FairTax is not the way to go about claiming Huck is a Progressive

Karl Marx is the father of the Income Tax....are all people attacking the FairTax....Communists?

Huckabee is not a conservative

The FairTax is a good idea, a much better way to collect revenue without having the intrusion of the government

The Flat Tax proposed by some is still the Karl Marx Income Tax....it still punishes rich people for making money...even though it is not a graduated tax

Those who attack the FairTax must really love big government, UN Statist Free Trade, and Karl Marx

Why does this question even need to be asked? Its very clear that Huckabee is conservative on social issues like abortion but is a raging liberal on economic issues and nanny-statism. He’s a Christian Socialist, Compassionate Conservative, Nanny-State Conservative, George Bush on Steroids—take your pick of terms.

You don’t understand the definition of a progressive.

Voters everywhere are asking the same question: Is Governor Huckabee a conservative or a progressive?

Huckabee is a pro-life liberal; a proponent of Big Government, nanny state, authoritarian, religious tyranny.

Constitutional conservatism is so far down on his list of priorities that he does not even rate a one on a scale of ten as a conservative.

_____________________________________________

Reasons why Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is a RINO and no longer fit for public office

These are the tax hikes that FAUX-CONSERVATIVE ol' Huckabee signed into law while Governor:

Sales Tax, 1996 (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 11/07/96)
Gas and Diesel Fuel Taxes, 1999 (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 04/02/99, 04/25/99)
Sales Tax, 2000 (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 09/25/02)
Cigarette Tax, 2001 (Associated Press, 04/02/01)
Nursing Home Bed Tax, 2001 (Associated Press, 06/25/01)
Sales Tax, 2002 (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 11/15/02)
Income Surcharge Tax, 2003 (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 10/09/07)
Tobacco Tax, 2003 (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 10/09/07)
Internet Taxes, 2004 (Bond Buyer, 02/24/04)

From TheBattman - 6/7/7:

Long and short on Huckabee from his record:

Positives:

1. Has been very strong on gun rights (CCW, protecting gun makers from stupid lawsuits).

2. Pro-Marriage: Marraige protection Act was his baby along with covenant marriage.

3. Pro-life

Negatives:

1. Supported taxes (Old-fashioned Tax-and-Spend politician)- engineered a 3% state income tax surcharge (a tax on the tax you paid in income tax) that was supposedly to make up for budget shortfalls - and then kept in in place a year longer than was necessary (and promised).

Raised fuel taxes

Encouraged the use of sales tax as an easy means of revenue boosting.

Opposed all efforts to reduce the sales tax on groceries and prescription drugs, even in years with a budget surplus. Heck, our new Democrat (liberal at that) Governor, under public pressure, agreed to a reduction in grocery sales tax...

2. ArKidsFirst - One of the larges social spending programs in Arkansas history was his baby. I don’t have a problem with helping low income folks get medical care, but I know many folks on it that could afford regular coverage - but why when big gubmint will give it free?

3. Big Government - Huckabee, between his socialist healthcare moves, his heavy hand regarding tobacco use, his mandatory “search lunchboxes of school kids” “health” initiative, and massive expansion of most social programs...

4. Poor record of political appointments - just one example - Sheffield Nelson on the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission - who has single-handedly tarnished the organization and really pissed off sportsmen in the state with his obstructionist and blatantly anti-”regular Joe” initiatives.

5. Illegal Immigration - Huckabee actually called anyone against illegal immigration (those who wanted to prevent free tuition to illlegals, free social benefits to illegals, etc.) non-Christian.

6. Party Affiliation - Huckabee has chosen in the last couple of elections to not be supportive of Republican candidates, including Lt. Governor, when they were a solid conservative choice, preferring more “moderate” or even liberal candidates.

I’m sure there is plenty more (maybe both pro and con) that others can add.

TheBattman 03/08/2006 4:06:54 PM CST Thanks OB1.... Another bit of news.. Anyone heard the news about our Socialist governer/wanna-be POTUS? He has worked out a deal with the Feds to give socialized medical care to Arkansans. Dave Elswick was griping this afternoon about it... Supposedly, Huckabee got a waver to be able to use Medicade funds to help provide health insurance for those in low to middle income jobs. If an employer who currently doesn't offer health insurance wants to (so it was put) offer insurance, the employer will kick in $15 per month for employees making up to 2 times the federal poverty level, and will have to kick in over $100 per month for those employees who make over that figure (doesn't make much sense to me). Also, this requires that the employer must cover either ALL employees or none. No picking and choosing which employees get it. The project will be paid for/supplemented with a combination of Federal and state tax dollars plus the employer contribution.

I would do away with the pre-bate. I can see many bothered by it. It still requires more government

It would lower the tax substantially to rid the prebate

Still it is much better than the Karl Marx Income Tax.

Unfortunately a good idea pushed by a liberal Huckabee

The HUCK is a HUCKSTER!!

Phyllis Schlafly comments on Huckabee’s lack of conservatism :

Phyllis Schlafly, president of the national Eagle Forum, is even more blunt. “He [Huckabee] destroyed the conservative movement in Arkansas, and left the Republican Party a shambles,” she says. “Yet some of the same evangelicals who sold us on George W. Bush as a ‘compassionate conservative’ are now trying to sell us on Mike Huckabee.”

The author is wrong in one major respect. Since the nineteen forties the term Progressive has been used to hide a pro-Marxist leaning. It still does. It really has nothing to do with hiding the Liberal label. The actuality is that 20th Century Liberalism is as dead as Hubert Humphrey.

Huckabee is a typical wanna-be, RINO elite, hoping to schmooze his way into the good graces of those who choose the nominee. Like Gingrich, he will cajole, sell out, betray and do anything he considers necessary to keep himself in the good graces of the party ruling class. He’s as trustworthy as Chuck Schumer.

Huck's first instinct is to view the state as the solution, not the (previously) free citizens of our Republic.

Christian-Socialist is an oxymoron....as is Christian-Marxist. Huck is a New Ager....a psuedo-Christian. He uses the words of Christ to twist and deform the true meaning of Christianity—As all fake Christians....they think government putting a gun to the back of the head of taxpayers is charity. Many of his “compassionate” ideas come out of the head of Hegel and Marx....both atheists.

Seems some of my links came out wrong. They have the number to this thread for some reason followed by the link to the other articles. You’ll have to search by title for the articles that don’t work or try to erase the part of the link that corresponds to this article and use the rest.

For example the link: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2708887/www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2640650/posts
Should have been really:
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2640650/posts

Not sure what went wrong but as I said: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2708887/posts is this link to this article and so that first part on most of the links is the number of this post.
