After deciding to be a third party voter during the mid-terms (with a couple of exceptions) I may have actually found a candidate I can vote for in the 2008 Presidential race. After reading the news reports on Mike Huckabee, and doing some research on him, I think I could cast a ballot for him. He seems to have come to the realistic conclusion that Bushanomics for the wealthy is not the way to run the economy, and he doesn't appear to be afraid to take realistic stands and support issues that are practical, whether they have a lot of vote-getting power or not. He's consistent on the sanctity of human life, has an excellent record on welfare reform, has seen the disaster next door in Texas regarding runaway insurance rates and property taxes, and has avoided dragging his state down the same path. He's a professing Christian, a former Baptist pastor, who isn't afraid to take a stand for what he believes, without being offensive or arrogant about it. Anybody else have an opinion on Mike? I like him better than Brownback, who is a lobbyists dream.
