The Next President Of The United States... (Values Voters Pick... Mike Huckabee!)
Worldnetdaily.com ^ | 10/02/2007 | Janet Folger

Posted on 10/01/2007 10:22:17 PM PDT by goldstategop

Unity not only gets us a pro-family President, but it could get us an administration that looks something like this:

President Mike Huckabee

Defense Secretary Duncan Hunter

Director of Homeland Security Tom Tancredo

Attorney General Sam Brownback

Director of Heath and Human Services Alan Keyes

If we combine the votes of these good men, we move from the back of the bus into the driver's seat and select the nominee. It's not only our best way to win the White House, from where I sit, it's the only way. United we drive, divided we crash.

A Dream Team conservative administration? Well, Values Voters will have to confound the experts and the polls and get their candidate nominated first.

A bunch of big government socons (except for Tancredo) who want to run your life under the guise of faith. No thanks, I'll pass. Typical WND drivel

Not necessarily. FReepers are opposed to politicians who want to regulate their lifestyles with smoking bans like Huckabee proposes, or to open borders like both Huckabee & Brownback supports, or reparations like Keyes supports.

I want a President, not a Daddy. I'm a grown man. Is that too hard to understand?

You know that is not fair to Duncan Hunter.

He is not a big-government kind of guy, unless you call voting for defense measures big-government.

If Hunter isn’t going to show some draw, who is there besides Huckabee who can really lead the country?

Who that will not resort to posing and using technicalities such as their version of “federalism” to put obstacles in the way of the apriori principles upon which our nation was founded (Rights to Life, Liberty, and property).

I think it would be a good idea if a presidential candidate actually puiblished/voiced his cabinet well before the election.

We tend to focus on one man, and build him up or tear him down based on what we know of him ... and there is always the faction that knows more about him and says, "Well, yeah ... but .. " , and proceeds to explain what's wrong with him.

But as we all know, the presidency is an organization headed by a man, and if we knew going in, whom would be at what helm .. I think a lot of votes would be combined.

I admit, politics seems to be more convoluted than 20 or more years ago.

I didn’t include Hunter in my list, although Hunter does support limits to gambling and has a dismal record on spending. But overall Hunter’s not like Huckabee, Brownback, and Keyes is. He’s probably the most Reaganesque Republican in the race.

Sorry,

He is only half the package.

He is correct on most moral issues, the Death Penalty being the glaring problem.

He is definitely not a conservative when it comes to fiscal matters. His fiscal record while governor was lousy! He raised taxes and increased the size of government in drastic ways!

No thank you! No sale, no way.

And after his pandering performance at the Maryland debates, he ain’t much of a leader either!

Well, Huckabee is not an ardent supporter of the war so I doubt he’d let Hunter near it.

He supports amnesty so not a chance for Tancredo.

And even he isn’t nuts enough to add keyes to his cabinet.

I really don’t care what newt and a few of these people are peddling. I wasn’t desperate enough to demand newt get in, I’m not so desperate I’d support Huckabee.

Give me one good reason I should. Even on the issue of social conservatism, my guess is that we’re world’s apart. on Judges. based on his love of government, I think it’s fair to deduce he wouldn’t look for a Justice like Thomas...he’s look for the right’s equivalent of Ginsberg. I don’t want activists on the court on left or right.

I have not fought republicans these last few years to a) elect a Republican speaking out against the war b) elect a Republican endorsing amnesty or ) elect a Republican that would look for more of an activist judge them another Thomas.

Three strikes...he’s out. This social conservative just says no.

http://www.alipac.us/article631.html

LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Gov. Mike Huckabee says he’s not afraid of risking his political future by speaking out against a recent immigration raid at an Arkadelphia poultry plant even though calls to his office have been “about 1,000 to one” against his stance.

...

“It seems like immigration is not the most popular issue in the world to take a stand on but we are talking about kids,” English said. “It looks like the federal government is being a great bully and these people are not committing great crimes. The outcome is these people don’t have their mom or dad.”

Friday, Huckabee said his repeated calls to Immigration and Customs and Enforcement officials about the raid have gone unanswered and he has asked the Bush administration to investigate the circumstances of the raid.

Here’s one. I am sure there are more.

Show me a statement from Huckabee where he calls for open borders, please.

"Pretty soon, Southern white guys like me may be in the minority," Huckabee said jokingly as the crowd roared in laughter.

The Republican governor, who many believe will run for president in 2008, also backed legislation that would have opened the door for illegal immigrants in Arkansas to receive college scholarships.

Huckabee promotes 'open door' policy at LULAC convention

He's a good guy but he's just not my cup of tea. Being a conservative with wide streaks of libertarianism in me, I just want a President who'll cut my taxes, secure the borders, and leave me the Hell alone.

Oh, he’s not stupid enough to call for open borders...anymore. In the past...Now he’s using the same language as mccain and Rudy and Bush. watch where he starts to call it a pathway to citizenship....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwOuDxRfL3U

watch as he denies it’s amnesty because he insists they pay restitution first (money for government coffers of course that he’d gladly use to support his nanny state) and insists they work. Then they get amnesty that he won’t call amnesty.

In a press release issued, former Governor Mike Huckabee took issue with the Tancredo campaign’s characterization of him as a pro-amnesty politician. Unfortunately for the Governor, the facts support the label.

Fact #1. As Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee denounced an immigration bill (Arkansas Senate Bill 206) that “would have required proof of citizenship to register to vote and would have required state agencies to report suspected cases of people living in the country illegally.”
(Doug Thompson, “Immigration Bill un-christian..governor says”Arkansas News Bureau 1/28/05)

Fact #2. As Governor, Mike Huckabee offered a proposal to give state funded scholarships and state benefits to illegal aliens.
(Laura Kellams, “Huckabee Plan would give aid to illegal aliens” Arkansas Democrat Gazette 1/12/2005)

Fact #3. Governor Huckabee supported a Bush-backed immigration plan that provides a path to citizenship for some illegal aliens.
(CNN 2008 Election Center, http://edition.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/candidates/mike.huckabee.html)

With all that has been posted in the negative (and truthful) about Huckabee, I am surprised there was even an attempt to get this to gain traction here on FR.

Huckabee is good at selling - and comes across as a genuinely nice guy (haven’t we heard that about Bill Clinton too...), but in so many ways, Huckabee is one of the biggest Socialists running for the office. His nanny-state, big government, tax-and-spend mentality is enough to make a fiscal conservative want to jump off a bridge.

or reparations like Keyes supports.

That's the best you Paul people can do?

Keyes doesn't support reparations. He never has.

Those who say he does are just proving that they're either liars or that they can't maintain reading comprehension beyond simple sentences like "See Ron run."

First you support Giuliani. Now Paul.

Maybe someday you'll get around to supporting a conservative.

I would be stunned if Keyes supported reparations. He is about as hard line a conservative as they come. It makes no sense that he would take this stand.

No way Sam Brownback should leave his Senate seat for a cabinet post. Abortion loving Gov Sebelius would appoint another left wing Dem to that seat.

Wrong forum? I’m not so sure that the post in reply #2 was that far of the mark. Values Voters are frequently no true champions of liberty nor are they a tolerant bunch to the preferences of the individual. It is the Values Voter whom I mostly hear using class warfare rhetoric and whom express their disdain for foreigners — hardly hallmarks for not coveting thy neighbors things and loving one’s neighbor

I think all the huckster pushers need to visit Hope, AR. I am sure they would like all the illegals that have set up shop there. Tyson foods has sold out the country. Grocery stores have signs in spanish. A lot of neighborhoods have houses with several cars parked in the yards. Some cars are parked there in the daytime and others are there at night. There is no way all of the people that stay there could have their own beds. The houses are not that big. I have heard that the illegals even take turns sleeping in the same beds.

When I think about the huckster, I remember reading about the “Judas Goat” and Luke 9.62. After all, he was supposed to be a Minister.

Ron Paul is no conservative. He’s a libertarian. One with no regard for the inalienable rights to life and liberty that are supposed to be guaranteed to every American.

Which explains why so many moonbat leftists have signed on to his campaign.

Unfortunately, other prominent Republicans, some of whom are running for President, have caught the Ron Paul disease.
