Mike Huckabee...

I really am liking Mike Huckabee. Check out his stand on the issues here.

I like him too. I keep hearing people say that the Republican field doesn't really have anyone who represents the "religious right." Perhaps that's true, but Huckabee certainly represents this particular Christian's views. I think the media doesn't consider him able to win, so he's counted out, and a lot of the well known religious right leaders are having to twist their perspective to include candidates like Giuliani, Thompson and Romney, none of whom will get my vote either in the primary or general election.

Huckabee's problem is that the Republican establishment doesn't like his economic policy. He's not a corporate sellout, wants a fair tax plan that requires the wealthy and the corporate world to pay its fair share, and isn't interested in promoting legislation that leads to tax money going in the pockets of private business. He's also against the death penalty, which seems to rub some of the religious right the wrong way.

But I like him, and if his name is on the ballot in the primaries, I will vote for him.

Good insights, Lee. I'm starting to see Huckabee get a little more attention, of late. I think that Dobson created a bit of a scare by suggesting the possibility of a 3rd party candidate representing conservative values. Huckabee was quick to say that he would not run in any circumstance other than as the GOP candidate. I signed up online to help with his campaign but I haven't heard anything yet. It could be that there is no campaign in Colorado at this point. We'll see...
