A smart man deliberately choosing to do the bidding of the left without even realizing he is doing so, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee will further divide the party after threatened to remove the ‘R’ after his name and become an independent if the GOP changes or even vacillates its stance on the gay marriage issue.
Gay marriage…NOT terrorism…NOT ISIS…NOT Ebola or enterovirus…NOT the economy…NOT unemployment…NOT the corrupt and traitorous Obama regime… but gay marriage…that is what concerns Mike Huckabee…gay marriage.
Shame on this man who as a former governor should know better than most that gay marriage…being a social issue…is a state’s issue and NOT a federal issue and in NO way should be on the agenda of a federal election. And he should know that the upcoming November mid-term election is primarily concerned with U.S. Senate and House seats…federally held seats.
And again as a former governor, Mike Huckabee should know that if we do NOT retake the Senate and keep and increase our numbers in the House the social issues…such as gay marriage…will forever be lost to discussion or debate as those on the ‘other side’ will NEVER allow them to be brought to the floor. Remember, if the Senate remains ‘blue’ Harry Reid remains in control, and we all should know by now what that means for both the social issues and for any issues put forth by the Republicans.
Now we all know that for Huckabee and others who are part of the ubber religious far right, their faith trumps politics and their faith determines their political leanings, which is really quite sad as they cannot see that the two…at this point in time…at this point in our nation’s history…need their order of importance reversed for if faith is allowed to trump politics we will NOT only lose the Senate but we will see Hillary Clinton…or another of her ilk…sitting in the White House come January 2017.
And sadly, if either of those two things happen the fault will lie…partially lie…at the feet of those who let their personal religious beliefs override what’s in the best interest of our country…and that means what’s in the best interest of ‘We the People’…the majority of ‘We the People’ that is.
In the best interest of our country…that is the key to reversing the damage done by the Obama regime to our beloved America over these past almost seven years. And the issues of importance (in NO particular order and in my opinion alone) should be about the threat of another 9/11 happening on our soil courtesy of ISIS or other such islamic terrorist group…should be about our unsecured borders…should be about ILLEGALS and those of the ‘you owe me-gimme gimme’ mentality raping our welfare and healthcare systems… should be about ObamaCare and all its nefarious ramifications…should be about the dismantling of our military by their very own Commander-in-Chief…should be about our public school system being hijacked by those trying to indoctrinate our children to do the bidding of the left…should be about a ‘supposed’ economic recovery that is anything but…need I go on as there is so much to choose from.
This election…whether some on our side believe it or NOT…is indeed a referendum on the politics and policies of the traitor who sits in the White House. At least it should be for the last time I looked God was NOT on the ballot.
Now in NO way am I mocking God or those who, like Mike Huckabee, believe like he said last week on the American Family Association’s radio show that,“If the Republicans want to lose guys like me…and a whole bunch of still God-fearing Bible-believing people…go ahead and just abdicate on this issue, and while you’re at it, go ahead and say abortion doesn’t matter, either.” I’m just saying that you can remain a ‘God-fearing Bible-believing person’ but still be smart enough to know that this election is all about numbers and numbers alone.
“Because at that point, you lose me,” Huckabee continued. “I’m gone. I’ll become an independent. I’ll start finding people that have guts to stand. I’m tired of this.” But what Huckabee is actually saying is if you do NOT hold the same beliefs he does…that if you do NOT hold the same beliefs as those who believe like him…than our country be damned. This misguiding thinking helped to cost us the White House in 2012… remember the Evangelical cry of “Better a muslim we know than a Mormon we don’t know”…and will be the reason why we lose the Senate, especially if Huckabee and those who think like him keep spewing out such divisive and judgmental words.
And Huckabee’s threatening words…and these words were indeed issued as a threat…came after the SCOTUS announced last week that they will NOT take up the gay marriage issue, thus clearing the way for same-sex marriages in the states of Wisconsin, Virginia, Utah, Oklahoma, and Indiana.
“I am utterly exasperated with Republicans and the so-called leadership of the Republicans who have abdicated on this issue when, if they continue this direction they guarantee they’re gonna lose every election in the future,” Huckabee said. “Guarantee it,” he added.
Guess what…Mike Huckabee nor anyone else for that matter can guarantee anything especially when it comes to politics. And honestly does it really make a difference in a straight person’s life what a ‘legal’ only piece of paper conferring gay marriage says. The Biblical definition of marriage being between one man and one woman stays… NO one is tampering with or negating the words of the Bible nor is anyone asking straight people or religious people to change their personal beliefs. And the truth is that all gay marriage really is about is committed same sex couples getting the same ‘legal’ rights afforded to straight couples in regards to insurance, medical issues, legal documents, and such…and do you really care what two consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedrooms…I know I don’t. And gay marriage, as some fear, will NOT bring a wave of pedophilic behavior as most pedophiles are straight men NOT gay men.
So, does it really matter in the scope of things if a gay man introduces his partner as his husband or if a gay woman introduces her partner as her wife…I mean come on it’s just words…words that have NO bearing on ones personal religious beliefs. Do I condone the word ‘marriage’ in regards to gay unions…while I might personally wish another word had been chosen I am NOT going to get bent out of shape because ‘marriage’ is now the legally mandated word used to describe said unions. And you know what…committed couples of any sex should have the same rights… after all our very own Declaration of Independence states so.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
These 36 words about natural and legal rights are words that give those rights to “all men” (and of course to all women) NOT just to those the ubber religious far right deem worthy of receiving those rights. These are words about human rights… human rights for ‘all’ Americans as nowhere in these words is it stated that these rights apply only to straight people or only to those who think that their beliefs…especially their religious beliefs …are the only ones that will be allowed to dictate American law and jurisprudence.
So to Mike Huckabee I say…it’s fine to wear your religious beliefs on your sleeve as that is your right to do so, but do you really know and understand the possible ramifications of the words you so hatefully spewed out on the public airwaves…I really don’t think you do for if you did you’d realize that your words will just divide our party even more, and are paramount to your condoning third party mentality which will most assuredly help keep the Senate ‘blue.’
And all this brouhaha is over an issue that Huckabee very well knows belongs on the state level…over an issue he knows could cost us the election…so it makes me wonder whose side Mike Huckabee really is on…just saying.
