At present, it is a little less than a year from now that Americans will be making their way to the polls to once again decide the future of this Great Nation; in choosing a Presidential candidate who will lead the way. This is the way it's always been, government created 'by the people', and, 'for the people'. However, in all the documents and laws penned by man, there is one Law that stands above all the words of man combined ... God's Holy and precious Word! The Freedom and prosperity of this triumphant Nation that we get to enjoy every single day, come from Our Creator. He inspired the men of the Bible to write for us standards, in which we may live by in order that we may humbly implore His Holy and Righteous favor. Thus, our very future rests upon our willingness to put Him first in this Nation....Thus, our Laws should follow accordingly...How? We start by allowing God to deal with our hearts, come into our lives and cleanse us from all unrighteousness and when election day comes, we ask that He give us the knowledge and wisdom to make the right choice in choosing the candidate that acknowleges God as Creator and seeks His favor, not so much for personal gain, but in making the decisions that will affect each and every one of us.
I believe Mike Huckabee is that person. Mike Huckabee is a man who has lead a life in the Church, and when I say the 'Church', I'm talking about all those who have accepted Christ into their life, and that's an important point; you see, the Church exclude the different denominations, it encompasses every one, in every denomination, who has accepted Christ. You know, religion can divide us as much as or more than politics can, in regards to theological belief systems, but there's one message that will never divide us ... 'Christ Crucified'. Amen?
What are Mike Huckabee's stances on the issues? I'll go over a few...
Mike Huckabee opposes abortion,same-sex marriages and civil unions.
He's right one all three ... Our Nation took a severe blow to our Christian heritage and Constitution in 1973 when Roe V. Wade was enacted. Roe V. Wade is nothing more than a license to Murder, it has brought untold bloodshed on this Nation, Forever stained. With nearly 50,000,000 little innocent lifes snuffed out ... the little Babies blood cries out in want for someone to save them!!!
I am confident that Mike Huckabee would do his very best to see an end to this barbaric Evil!!!
On same-sex marriage--God's Word says, in Leviticus 18: 22--Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.
Mike Huckabee says, "I would try to do the same things that I did as governor of Arkansas, where I led a constitutional amendment that was passed overwhelmingly by our voters that affirmed what marriage is. Marriage is a relationship between one man, and one woman, for Life. I also believe that we need to do other things. I declared a state of marital emergency in our state, called pastors and other clergy together to commit to community marriage policies, to not engage in carrying on marriages unless they had counseled with the couple beforehand. We were one of the few states that passed a covenant marriage bill in Arkansas. I would support strongly and lead--not just support, but lead--an effort to have a constitutional amendment to affirm marriage as between one man, one woman, for life."

He's right on the money, again ... and it's time to strike down the sick bill that Bill Clinton signed into law, "don't ask, don't tell," law.
Mike Huckabee supports the Death Penalty.
God instituted the Death Penalty that some authority over people who commit acts of murder and other crimes against humanity--Genesis 9:6 Whoever sheds the blood of man, by ban shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man.
God instituted governments to carry out the laws of the land.
Romans 13:1-4 - Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrondoer.
So, you see, we would have far less crime in our major cities and metropolitan areas if we federally mandated the Death Penalty.
The current system just will not work, because the existing laws give the opportunity for appeals, and thus, time is not on the peoples side, people are dying at the hands of Murderers. Don't get me wrong, a trial must be conducted, it is the fair way, but we must do away with any appeals, parole etc,etc. We must carry it out as swiftly as possible, and in turn, it will send the message that, 'We don't allow Murder'.
Mike Huckabee also believes that God has a rightful place within our school systems, in prayer and teaching. Evolution is unacceptable. Children must be afforded the opportunity to hear the message of Truth from God's Word!!!
These are the primary reasons I support Mike Huckabee, and I am aware that there other issues which need to be addressed, but I think these are the issues that affect us in far greater implications that some may realize.
Mike Huckabee will be a tremendous help to this Nation ... As I've said though, it is ultimately up to the people to decide which direction they want America to go...They can choose God as their guide, or they can choose their own conscience, the problem with the conscience is that when we start to think, the flesh tends to do the thinking for us.
We must rely upon Almighty God to help us make the right decisions!!
