Despite our very best efforts the news was not good last night. But Wisconsin in now in the rear view mirror and we head to Texas and Ohio now. No matter what the odds are and now matter how grim things look we must keep fighting for every vote and every delegate. This is much larger than it seems. We are at the head of a political movement. Did Reagan’s Rangers quit in 1976 even though he might not win the nomination because of the will of the Republican establishment? NO! Did they quit when he was denied the nomination at convention? NO! 1980 came four years later and their persistence paid off! We may not get what we want out of this election cycle but we must keep fighting. Every vote, every delegate won, ever state in our column increases our chances at convention and/or makes Mike Huckabee the frontrunner in 2012.
Some may say that Mike Huckabee is burning bridges in the GOP for fighting this long. However this is a man that is loyal to his principles and to his party. The minute John McCain secures the 1,191 delegates he needs is the minute Mike Huckabee starts campaigning hard for him. I can see no other better keynote speaker at the GOP convention than Mike Huckabee as he states his case why John McCain is better for our country and more qualified to be our president. Ronald Reagan sucked it up, swallowed his pride, and did the very same in 1976 after he was defeated on the floor.
WE ARE THE HUCKABEE REPUBLICANS!!! WE STAND FOR OUR PRINCIPLES NO MATTER WHAT!!! WE MUST KEEP FIGHTING UNTIL THE END NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES!!!
Are you with me?
