It’s been less than a decade since the Clinton impeachment circus. Since that point we have stood as a nation politically divided and highly polarized. You either have to be a Conservative or a Liberal, Republican or Democrat.There can’t be a happy medium. Nothing in Washington is done for the good of the people or the nation. It’s all party politics and politics as usual has thrown the concept of bi-partisanship out the window and into the garbage. As an Independent voter and an American I’m sick of this nonsense!
It’s time for a change and in the immortal words of Sam Cooke “A Change is Gonna Come.” It’s time to rise up as one voice and demand a president who won’t divide us any longer. Our future as a nation depends on it. Our enemies have already started gathering like vultures and hungry wolves at our doorstep because they can see our weakness since we are so very divided. We have brave men and women fighting for us abroad against an enemy that hates us and yet we remain divided at home. I don’t care what your opinion is on Iraq or the War on Terror. However, in our present situation we might as well just bring them all home, retreat and surrender. We cannot achieve victory abroad in any sense without being united at home. If we were divided at home during World War II, we’d all be lampshades now. It’s time we get behind someone who will unite us again.
What you’re still reading? Excellent! That’s where many politicians would stop and receive applause and step away from the stump or the microphone after tellings us what our problems are without presenting solutions to rectifying the situation. Not me. Not now. Not this time. Not that I am a politician, I’m just a common man giving his two cents to anyone who will read this blog.
How do we rectify the situation? We unite around the only presidential candidate that appeals to the masses on either side of the aisle, former Arkansas Governor, Mike Huckabee. I endorse him not as a Democrat or a Republican, but as an American. If there is anyone that can unite us again it is a Washington outsider and Huck’s the only viable candidate in either field that can claim that. I feel that Mike is the greatest communicator of ideas since Ronald Regan. No matter what you think about what he says you always know where he is going to stand on an issue. Mike’s take on the issues of the day are straight from his mouth and not from some Political advisor. His opinions and stances on the issues will not change based on what other people think, what advisors tell him to say, how poll numbers come out, or the political winds changing direction. Granted I disagree with Mike on a few petty issues but unlike other candidates, Huck doesn’t leave me with a sense of bitterness or anger towards him. Instead of offering some jelly beans to you (like Regan), Mike will give you a laugh, a smile, and maybe even some ear-pleasing bass licks with his rock band if you disagree with him There is not a man, woman, or child that would hate Huckabee as President of the United States. Wouldn’t that be a breath of fresh air compared to the current status quo?
How do I know Huckabee has the appeal of the common man? Mike is going to places where a GOP candidate normally wouldn’t dare to tread. He is appealing to his base one day and courting the NEA, Machinists Union, and the AARP and appear before television audiences that are predominatly liberal (like The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Bill Maher) the next. He is definitely a uniter and not a divider.
So let’s get behind a true winner. Remember “A House Divided Will Never Stand.” Mike Huckabee is the only “Hope” for a true “United” States of America in 2008! As for me, I am voting for a change. I will proudly march to the voting booth on February 5th in the Georgia primary and vote for Huckabee . I will proudly do the exact same thing next November (even if I have to write his name in on the ballot). I hope you will join me!
