Each Sunday, I take a step away from daily politics and focus on someone who has done extraordinary things or who we may need to know a little better. This week’s focus is on a person I have thought highly of for some time. He is an unlikely choice for Spotlight, but dig deep, and he is a person of quality in a business where that is rare. He is the former Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee.
Mike Huckabee is a Baptist Minister, and though I never saw him preach, I sense his preacher demeanor every time I hear Mike speak. He has a calmness and confidence about him that augments his strong Conservative views. I always feel like Mike is committed to his beliefs and delivers his message in a convincing manner that is genuine.
Huckabee served two terms as Governor and was once named a top ten and top five Governor. He trimmed expenses and taxes and was highly praised for his guidance of his state through Katrina. Mike ran for president twice and finished third behind John McCain and Mitt Romney in 2008. Huckabee has had much to offer as a contributor on FOX News, He is easy to listen to, and his views are solid.
Mike has hosted a talk show on Fox and TBN since 2007. He talks about politics with people in the news and showcases his other passion, music. Mike is an accomplished bass player, and music is just another way that Mike communicates. Though his time in public service may be over, politics still runs through his family tree as his daughter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has a comfortable lead and looks to be the next Governor of Arkansas. You can see many of her father’s traits in Sarah; she should be a good choice for Arkansas.
Arkansas will not be the only state to turn to Conservative leadership in November, as two years of negativity under this Progressive experiment has proven to be much for Americans.
Huckabee is still working to promote Conservatism, love of this country, and an understanding of our history. We need to understand the steps we took to arrive at this point and identify the mistakes as well as the accomplishments. Reflection is how we can learn and make tomorrow a better day for all of us.
You will see Mike on the air promoting various products. Still, possibly the most impactful of his efforts is teaming up with President Donald Trump to put an illustrated history of America into the hands of each of our schoolchildren. We will have to work long and hard to overcome the suppression of our history by our progressive and defective education system, and this effort is one step by two great men in that direction.
Mike Huckabee is a religious man, has proven to be a noble man, and is obviously a man who loves this great country and sees the good in Americans. He believes in a Conservative system that has proven to work for everyone, regardless of ethnicity or color. We would do well to learn from Mike Huckabee and seek out more men and women with his values and beliefs.
