Among the candidates for the presidency of the United States of America, Mike Huckabee, former governor, stands out from his peers. He stands for a traditional America where pro-life is rewarded, homosexuality is discouraged, and income taxes are removed in favor of a national sales tax.
I had the privilige of hearing Mr. Huckabee speak last night in Rhode Island at the Crown Plaza Hotel (I think I got the place right). His speach conveyed a confidence and ease reminiscent, to many present, of former president Ronald Reagan.
The evening began with the candidate playing his guitar in a band and ended with his very well-presented speach. He spoke on his belief that government should support families, not undermine them. He expressed his disgust with the way that taxation is penilizing the average American and making it easier for foreign manufacturers to put them out of business. At the end of his condemnation of the tax system, Mr. Huckabee tore up a 1040 tax form and threw it on the stage, saying that, were he president and the changes he proposes implemented, there would be no more need to fill out that dreaded piece of paper.
Governor Huckabee deserves our ear, he deserves our votes . . . he deserves the chance to implement his reformative proposals. He has my vote. Will he have yours?
