Merry Christmas!

We wanted to take the time to wish all of you a very
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


On this day, set aside by many as a time for giving and receiving gifts, let us not forget the greatest gift that was ever given.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is GIVEN: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

For God so loved the world, that he GAVE his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16


Christ came to die that we might live.
This is the only reason for the season!
Merry Christmas from all of us!

Quotes from a sermon Governor Huckabee gave earlier today

“Sometimes in the middle of Christmas, Jesus is the one person who’s tough to find. You notice that? I can find Santa at every mall, you can find discounts in every store but if you mention the name of Jesus, as I found out recently, it upsets the whole world. Forgive me but I thought that was the point of the whole day.”



“One hundred years from now when all your worries are over, if your faith is in that child in Bethlehem born that day, and you’ve taken yourself off the throne and you’ve decided you’d rather be a shepherd than a Herod, then the good news for you is, when the game is over no matter what It looks like now, you win in the end. That is the message of Christmas so I say to you, Merry Christmas! Jesus is Lord!”

Dick Morris: "Huckabee Is A Fiscal Conservative"

From an article by Dick Morris:

As Mike Huckabee rises in the polls, an inevitable process of vetting him for conservative credentials is under way in which people who know nothing of Arkansas or of the circumstances of his governorship weigh in knowingly about his record. As his political consultant in the early ’90s and one who has been following Arkansas politics for 30 years, let me clue you in: Mike Huckabee is a fiscal conservative.

A recent column by Bob Novak excoriated Huckabee for a “47 percent increase in state tax burden.” But during Huckabee’s years in office, total state tax burden — all 50 states combined — rose by twice as much: 98 percent, increasing from $743 billion in 1993 to $1.47 trillion in 2005. In Arkansas, the income tax when he took office was 1 percent for the poorest taxpayers and 7 percent for the richest, exactly where it stood when he left the statehouse 11 years later. But, in the interim, he doubled the standard deduction and the child care credit, repealed capital gains taxes for home sales, lowered the capital gains rate, expanded the homestead exemption and set up tax-free savings accounts for medical care and college tuition.

Most impressively, when he had to pass an income tax surcharge amid the drop in revenues after Sept. 11, 2001, he repealed it three years later when he didn’t need it any longer. He raised the sales tax one cent in 11 years and did that only after the courts ordered him to do so. (He also got voter approval for a one-eighth-of-one-cent hike for parks and recreation.) He wants to repeal the income tax, abolish the IRS and institute a “fair tax” based on consumption, and opposes any tax increase for Social Security.

And he can win in Iowa.

When voters who have decided not to back Rudy Giuliani because of his social positions consider the contest between Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, they will have no difficulty choosing between a real social conservative and an ersatz one. Romney, who began as a pro-lifer and switched in order to win in Massachusetts, and then flipped back again, cannot compete with a lifelong pro-lifer, Huckabee.

But Huckabee’s strength is not just his orthodoxy on gay marriage, abortion, gun control and the usual litany. It is his opening of the religious right to a host of new issues. He speaks firmly for the right to life, but then notes that our responsibility for children does not end with childbirth. His answer to the rise of medical costs is novel and exciting. “Eighty percent of all medical spending,” he says, “is for chronic diseases.” So he urges an all-out attack on teen smoking and overeating and a push for exercise not as the policies of a big-government liberal but as the requisites of a fiscal conservative anxious to save tax money.

Some Facts About A Favorite American Statesman!



  • He was born to hard-working parents in unpretentious surroundings.


  • He graduated from high school and worked his way through college.


  • He was an avid outdoorsman and loved dogs.


  • He ran for Governor as a Republican in a very Democratic state and served two terms.


  • As Governor, he was criticized for raising taxes to eliminate the budget deficit.


  • He was able to consistently balance his state’s budget and end each year with a surplus.


  • He was faced with a very Democratic legislature and learned to work with members of the opposite party.


  • As Governor, he enlisted the help of parents in the education of their children.


  • In his run for President, there were 7 other Republican candidates running.


  • He refused to attack the other candidates and ran a positive campaign.


  • He was criticized for not having any foreign policy experience.


  • He was criticized for his occupation prior to his political career.


  • He was not ashamed of his Christian faith and referred to himself as a "born-again Christian."


  • He was known for his wit, charm and sense of humor.


  • He was able to cross party lines with his message of hope and vision for America.


  • He spoke with ease, with conviction, with passion -- and was able to communicate with the people like few politicians can.


  • His National Campaign Chairman was Ed Rollins.


  • His name is Ronald Reagan.

    How many of you thought I was referring to Mike Huckabee? :) It is both interesting and exciting to see the similarities in the lives, ideas and policies of Ronald Reagan and Mike Huckabee. With so many of the current Republican candidates trying to assume the mantle of Ronald Reagan for the profit of their campaign, it is very special to be able to support the candidate that really does have the same principles as our great 40th president. This is evidenced by the fact that Ronald Reagan’s National Campaign Chairman, Ed Rollins, has recently joined Gov. Huckabee’s campaign in the same capacity. Mr. Rollins stated that since the days of Reagan he has been looking for another statesman like that, and that Mike Huckabee comes closer to Ronald Reagan than any other politician. Coming from a man who knew Ronald Reagan very personally, that’s a powerful statement! Instead of looking back and wishing for the days of Ronald Reagan, it's time to look forward into the bright future our country can have with a president like Mike Huckabee!











December 27th

The unofficial Huckabee campaign (http://www.hucksarmy.com/) has set a goal of $1,ooo,ooo to be raised on Dec. 27th. Visit http://www.dec27th.com/ to read more and to make your pledge!

Bumper Stickers!

We just got a new shipment of 50 bumper stickers. We want to get these stickers out and on vehicles as quickly as possible to get Governor Huckabee's name out. If you would like a bumper sticker, please leave a comment on our blog.





Rasmussen: Huckabee first in Florida

In the Rasmussen poll released today, Gov. Huckabee leads the rest of the GOP candidates with 27% of the vote in Florida! Mitt Romney is close behind at 23% and Rudy Giuliani is at 19%. This new development in the race is very exciting for Gov. Huckabee. Since the last Rasmussen Florida poll in November he has picked up 18 percentage points while Giuliani, the former front-runner, has dropped 8 points. Mayor Giuliani, like Mitt Romney, may have to start rethinking his campaign strategy. He planned to gain momentum by winning the delegate-rich state of Florida on Jan. 29 and go on to do well on Super Tuesday in other large states. A loss in Florida could be a big blow to his campaign.



Gov. Huckabee now leads in the important states of Iowa, Michigan, South Carolina, Florida and Texas. Rasmussen has him at 23% nationally again today, leading Giuliani by 4%!



Keep working and keep praying! Our God is ABLE!!

All signed and sent to Nashville!

Our petitions to be Huckabee delegates are finished!

Huckabee 16 Points Ahead in Iowa!!!

I just had to post the results of a new Rasmussen poll of Iowa Republican voters. Gov. Huckabee now has 39% of the vote while Mitt Romney has 23%. Since the last Rasmussen poll conducted in Iowa 2 weeks ago, Gov. Huckabee has gained 11 points and Romney has lost 2. Not one of the other candidates is even polling in double digits in Iowa now.

Gov. Huckabee is now viewed favorably by 81% of Iowa Republicans -- that's 16% up from last month! This proves that the Iowans are too smart to believe the attacks and criticisms that the media and rival candidates have been levelling at Huckabee these last few weeks.

It has been exciting to see how the Lord is fulfilling His promise in Isaiah 54:17 for Gov. Huckabee: "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of Me, saith the Lord."

Our First Huckabee Meetup

Last evening our Huckabee Meetup group met for the first time.
We discussed ways that we can help the Huckabee campaign locally, passed out bumper stickers to those who did not have them, and talked about the best places to get Huckabee materials.



Because 3 of the members of the meetup are working towards being Huckabee delegates, there were several petitions to sign.


After the meeting we watched Huckabee's interview on Hannity and Colmes.



Special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Hardin for hosting the meetup!

Huckabee continues to lead in the National Rasmussen Poll. Today his support is at 21% while Giuliani is at 18%, Romney at 12% and Thompson and McCain at 11%.

A Rasmussen poll released today shows Huckabee at 25% in South Carolina, an important early primary state. He leads Romney and Thompson by 7 percentage points!

Mobilize for Mike Day

Today our goal is to introduce 100,000 new friends to Gov. Huckabee using the internet. Here's what Gov. Huckabee had to say about it yesterday: "We hope to educate voters about our campaign, counter misinformation being circulated by rival campaigns and build our base of support nationally. While other campaigns spend hundreds of thousands of dollars micro-targeting voters with canned messages, starting at midnight tonight we'll focus on what has worked for us: friends telling friends about our campaign. Friend to friend conversations was the secret to our success in Ames and it will be the best way to build our momentum heading into next year."

Here's how it works: Visit the Build Our Base section of the Huckabee website.Choose the type of email you would like to send (you can preview messages). Add the email addresses of people you would like to send the message to. Add your personal message and hit send. It will take just a minute, but can be very effective! A ticker on the front page of the website will be tracking our progress.

Gov. Huckabee's campaign continues to experience an amazing surge. Yesterday was the best day yet for the campaign website -- over 6,000 new email signups, 700 first time contributors and over 100 new Rangers! Let's keep the momentum building by sending all of our friends to check it out for themselves!

ATTENTION TENNESSEE HUCKABEE SUPPORTERS

WE NEED YOUR HELP!


If you are a Huckabee supporter from Tennessee we need your help. Governor Huckabee needs 3 delegates and 3 alternate delegates from each congressional district in Tennessee. We have only a week to fill these important slots, and we need Huckabee supporters from across the state to step up and fill these vacancies. If you are a registered Tennessee Republican voter who is willing to be a Huckabee delegate to the national convention, please contact one of these men right away:


Jared Morris, Ballot Access and Delegate Coordinator:



Bill Bryant, Ballot Access and Delegate Coordinator:



We have two in our family who have begun working to be delegates. Each potential delegate must submit 150 signatures of registered voters from their district by Thursday, Dec. 13th, in order to be included on the ballot. If you are a registered voter from the 7th Congressional district of Tennessee and would be willing to sign these petitions for us please leave a comment on our blog.

FIRST In The NATION!!!!

The Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll, released just moments ago, has Gov. Huckabee at 20% support nationally! Since Rudy Giuliani has slipped to only 17%, this places Gov. Huckabee as the leading contender for the Republican Nomination.

Today's numbers:

HUCKABEE - 20%
Giuliani - 17%
McCain - 13%
Romney - 13%
Thompson - 10%

Praise the Lord!!!!

"I will extol Thee, my God, O king; and I will bless Thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless Thee; and I will praise Thy name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable." Psalm 145:4

Huckabee Featured On Nightline Yesterday

Click here to watch Gov. Huckabee on ABC's Nightline.

HUCKABEE TIED FOR FIRST PLACE NATIONALLY!!!!!!!!!!!



This is the best news so far! After coming in a definite second in the daily Rasmussen Presidential Republican Poll for 2 days, today Gov. Huckabee has gone up to 18%. Combined with Rudy Giuliani's falling numbers, it places Gov. Huckabee in a tie for first place nationwide!!!! "This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous it our eyes." Psalm 118:23

From today's Rasmussen Report:
"With less than a month to go before the Iowa caucuses, the Rasmussen Report's daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that Rudy Giuliani has fallen back in the pack in the race for the Republican Presidential Nomination. Giuliani’s support has fallen to 18% and four other candidates are within six percentage points of the lead. Mike Huckabee is enjoying an amazing surge and now shares the top spot with Giuliani at 18%. Close behind are John McCain at 14%, Fred Thompson at 13%, and Mitt Romney at 12%. Ron Paul attracts 7% of likely Republican Primary voters nationwide and no other Republican candidate reaches 2."

Even though our candidate is ahead, and the only candidate continuing to surge, it doesn't mean that we can sit back and relax. Criticism will be coming to Gov. Huckabee from all angles now. The Romney campaign has already sent out a mailing to Iowa voters slamming Gov. Huckabee's record and stand on the issues. Now is the time for us to really work on getting the truth out to the voters of America! And while it feels great to be tied for first place we must never forget Who is giving Gov. Huckabee success. "God is the judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another." Psalm 75:7 The Lord is blessing His servant Mike Huckabee and we give Him all the glory!!

"Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto Thy name give glory, for Thy mercy, and for Thy truth's sake." Psalm 115:1

The poll numbers are:

Giuliani - 20%
Huckabee - 17%
Thompson - 14%
McCain - 13%
Romney - 11%
Paul - 7%

Gov. Huckabee was at 17% yesterday also, and the weekly poll average for him last week was 15%.

November Goal Reached

"If God be for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31


As the last day to meet the November fundraising goal, yesterday was a big day for the Huckabee Campaign. The online donations totalled more than $365,000. This is the largest amount of money raised online in one day during the entire campaign! Over 2,000 supporters made their first contribution to Huckabee's campaign yesterday.


The money raised yesterday puts the campaign at $3 million on hand. This money will allow the campaign to do some serious work in the early primary states. The money will be used to run ads, print literature and yard signs, and hire staff in these important early states. We have seen how much the Huckabee campaign has been able to accomplish in spite of the little they have spent. Less than 2 months ago Rasmussen polls had Governor Huckabee at 4% nation wide. Today Rasmussen reported him at 15%, his highest point so far, and within 10 points of first in the nation. Many people still have not heard of Huckabee, but your donations will help to get the word out. We will be watching in the days ahead to see what will be done through our contributions.



"Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it." Psalm127:1



We must remember where the success comes from, yet we must also do our part. The November goal has been reached, but a new goal will be announced next week. Let's help get Governor Huckabee's name out. Even if you are unable to make a financial contribution you can support the campaign through prayer.


Remember to use our donor code(R34) when you make a contribution. This will help us to reach our family's goal.
