Huckabee is Not a Conservative

Mike Huckabee is an evangelical but he is not a conservative.

The MoJo has yet to decide which candidate to support, but we have decided which candidates not to support.

The MoJo does not support liberalism, thus we do not support Democrats, nor do we support Mike Huckabee.

Conservatism is defined by conservative actions, not through identity politics.

As Rush Limbaugh noted on his radio program today:
"Ladies and gentlemen, Gov. Huckabee, mighty fine man and is a great Christian, is not a conservative, he’s just not. If you look at his record as governor, he’s got some conservative tendencies on things but he’s certainly not the most conservative of the candidates running on the Republican side."
Governor Huckabee supports open borders and amnesty.

Limbaugh concludes:
"Conservatism, ladies and gentlemen, true conservatism balances budgets by cutting government, not by raising taxes. Governor Huckabee is opposed to school choice, and he said we should treat dictators and terrorists with the Golden Rule."
Evangelicals point to Governor Huckabee's stand on abortion as the reason for their zealous support. Those evangelicals have fallen victim to identity politics and fail to understand that politically, procedurally, and legally, the president can do NOTHING to effect abortion other than to appoint conservative Supreme Court Justices.
