America Needs A Leader, Not A Loser

A wise man once said: “What do you call a leader with no followers? Just a man out for a walk.”

That’s the problem with Washington.

Washington politicians think making a speech on the Senate floor is leadership.

Making a speech is not leadership. Proposing a bill is not leadership. Fighting and losing, again and again, is not leadership. It’s nothing but talk.

I’ve heard enough speeches in Washington. We need real leadership to change Washington because Washington is a strip club. The political class dances for the donor class, and the working class gets stuck with the tab!

As president, I will transform Washington and transfer power back to the people. My plan is simple:

-Term Limits for Congress and judges. Do your service and return home.

-Lifetime ban on lobbying for members of Congress. Going to Washington should not be a career.

-No budget, no pay for the President or Congress. If the President or Congress won’t do their job, they don’t get paid.

-No pay for political campaigning. Resign if you decide to run for an office other than the one you currently hold.

-Require Congress to get their healthcare from the V.A.. No American veteran will ever rot and die again if they’re waiting in line alongside a U.S. Senator.

-Abolish the IRS and pass the FairTax. Enough tinkering with the tax code to benefit Washington elites; we need a tax revolution that creates prosperity for all.

-Stop raiding Social Security. Washington has done enough lying and stealing. It’s your money, not the government’s.

-End the Department of Education. Education is a family function, not a federal one. Kill Common Core and restore common sense.

-Pass a balanced budget amendment. I did it for 10 years as governor despite facing the Clinton machine and the most Democrat legislature in America. Why can’t Washington?

America needs a leader who fights and wins, not a loser.

That’s exactly what I did as governor.

I repeatedly defeated the Clinton machine and put corrupt career politicians in jail.  I cut taxes, balanced the budget ten years straight, and raised average family income 50%. I defended life, marriage and religious liberty. I got the job done, despite facing the most Democrat legislature in the country.

That’s leadership, and that’s what’s missing in Washington.

I refuse to walk my grandkids through the charred remains of a once great country.

Instead of burning this country to the ground, let’s burn down the corrupt Washington political machine and rebuild America before it’s too late.

GOP Candidate Reveals HUGE Thing Pope’s Visit May Have Finally Forced D.C. Politicians To Do

The Washington elite can no longer ignore the demands of everyday Americans for religious liberty, former Ark. Gov. Mike Huckabee said Wednesday, reacting to news that Pope Francis had met with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis.

Huckabee has been a strong supporter of Davis, who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and was briefly jailed for her refusal.

“The media mocked and derided millions of Americans who supported Kim Davis’ constitutional right to religious liberty,” said Huckabee, who is running for the Republican presidential nomination. “It may just be a visit from the Pope that pushes the out of touch political class in Washington to finally stand up to judicial tyranny and stand for religious liberty.”

The pope met with Davis and her husband privately in Washington on September 24th. News of the meeting emerged this week. After the pope’s visit, he said government employees have a right not to violate their beliefs in public service.

“While the media elites were slobbering all over themselves because Pope Francis commented on climate change, the Pope held a quiet and powerful meeting with a humble Apostolic county clerk from Kentucky,” Huckabee said.

“The Pope recognized something the chattering class in Washington and Wall Street will never understand – that Kim Davis followed her conscience and convictions. The Pope thanked Kim for doing so and congratulated her for her stand,” he said.

The meeting of Davis and the pope is more than just a meeting of two individuals, said Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, the law firm representing Davis.

“The challenges we face in America regarding the sanctity of human life, marriage, and religious freedom are the same universal challenges Christians face around the world,” Staver said.

“Religious freedom is a human right that comes from God. These values are shared in common by people of faith, and the threats to religious freedom are universal. Kim Davis has become a symbol of this worldwide conflict between Christian faith and recent cultural challenges regarding marriage,” Staver said.

As President, Huckabee Will Protect All Human Life Including The Unborn


Former Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee spoke at the Values Voter Summit in Washington DC:

Now I know one of the biggest battles going on in this city right now, and it’s a worthy battle, and an important one, defund Planned Parenthood.

And it’s why I have said, that as President of the United States, I will raise this question: Is the unborn child a person or is it just a blob of tissue? And I believe with all my heart the answer to that question we all know, it is a person.

Since it is a human being, we already have the Constitutional protection, it’s called the 5th Amendment that says that there will be due process before you deprive a person of life or liberty. As president, we will invoke the 5th and 14th Amendment. We will protect human life.

Governor Huckabee said that he will preserve the three equal branches of government.

I’ve read the Constitution. Something, I think, a lot of Ivy League lawyers never did. And here’s this much I know: The courts cannot make a law. And I want you to know and I serve notice today, that as President of the United States, I will keep the oath and will not surrender the entire Executive Branch over to the Judicial or the Legislative because I believe there are three branches of government, equal, and therefore the checks and balances to each other. And Kim Davis and people like her will never, ever go to jail one minute if I’m President of the United States.

One GOP Candidate Just Sent D.C. A Fierce Message And Stole The Show From Trump At A Conservative Event

On the day that Speaker of the House John Boehner announced his pending resignation, not just from the Speaker’s chair but from Congress, a large group of conservatives were meeting in Washington–and one man had the crowd there worked up to a fever pitch with his bold attack on the D.C. establishment.

Though he may be back in the pack of Republican Presidential candidates for the GOP nomination, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee had the crowd at the Values Voter Summit on their feet cheering during his rousing address, so much so that he seemed to take the spotlight away from GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

After news broke at the Summit that Speaker Boehner had announced he was stepping down in October, Huckabee used that news to good effect for a humorous opener, saying that he heard that Boehner decided to resign after a meeting with the pope. Huckabee then wondered aloud if it were possible to arrange a similar meeting for Obama!

But as his speech commenced, he wowed the conservative audience with his direct attack on the establishment, saying, “making a speech is not leadership.”

“I’m angry. Republicans aren’t doing anything different in the majority as they were doing in the minority,” Huckabee thundered.

“I understand what a fight is. But I understand that a fight means that you fight to win, not just fight to fight,” he said.

Huckabee then warned that fighting has to have a purpose. “The easiest thing in the world is to take a can of gasoline and a book of matches and burn the whole thing down. It requires no skill whatsoever. A kid who is 11 years old can do that,” he said, before noting that there had to be a logical end goal.

After reminding his audience that he was not an inside-the-beltway type of politician, Huckabee also noted that making speeches is not leadership.

“I’ve never lived here, I’ve never worked here, I’ve never had a paycheck here,” Huckabee said. “But I do understand that simply making a speech is not leadership and simply proposing a piece of legislation is not leadership. Unless you bring it to the point where it gets signed and implemented, it’s nothing but talk.”

“Leadership means you get the job done. We must begin to get the job done. I’ve heard enough speeches in America. I want some real leadership to change America.”

Watch: Huckabee Says One Brutal Word About Obama And Christianity That Will Ignite Controversy

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has attracted some criticism in recent days for his statement that he would not embrace a Muslim president due to the inherent differences between the Islamic Sharia Law and the principles in America’s founding documents.

Others in the GOP field have weighed in on Carson’s statement — including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who responded during a recent episode of Newsmax TV’s The Hard Line.

Huckabee noted that he is not particularly concerned with theoretical candidates, at this point.

“There is no religious test for a person to hold public office in America,” he asserted.

It is not one’s profession of faith, he explained, but the manifestation thereof that means much more to him.

“I’m less concerned about what faith a person has,” he said. “I’m more concerned about the authenticity of their faith and how that plays out in their policies.”

He went on to reference Barack Obama, particularly in the context of Pope Francis’ historic visit to the U.S. this week.

“I’m also concerned about a guy that believes he’s a Christian,” Huckabee said, “and pretends to be and then says he is, but does things that make it very difficult for people to practice their Christian faith.”

Even Carson shied away from suggesting Obama is anything but the Christian he professes to be; however, Huckabee’s bold statement has earned him some social media praise.

Plenty of critics were also anxious to comment, with many suggesting the Baptist preacher overstepped his scriptural authority.
