Yes that is why I did not vote for him in the primaries.

Yep, the words "less government" tend to be a dead give away. ;) :D

In a chapter titled "Faux-Cons: Worse than Liberalism," Huckabee identifies what he calls the "real threat" to the Republican Party: "libertarianism masked as conservatism." He is not so much concerned with the libertarian candidate Ron Paul's Republican supporters as he is with a strain of mainstream fiscal-conservative thought that demands ideological purity, seeing any tax increase as apostasy and leaving little room for government-driven solutions to people's problems. "I don't take issue with what they believe, but the smugness with which they believe it," writes Huckabee, who raised some taxes as governor and cut deals with his state's Democratic legislature. "Faux-Cons aren't interested in spirited or thoughtful debate, because such an endeavor requires accountability for the logical conclusion of their argument." Among his targets is the Club for Growth, a group that tarred Huckabee as insufficiently conservative in the primaries and ran television ads with funding from one of Huckabee's longtime Arkansas political foes, Jackson T. Stephens Jr.

He's the one who doesn't know how to have thoughtful debate. At one of the FOX News Presidential debates last year, Huckabee got into a little debate with Congressman Paul over the failings of our foreign policy in Iraq. All Huckabee could say was "honor" this and "honor" that, "honor" ad nauseum. He's a neocon con-artist whose conservative record is so busted with liberal consistency that he makes Bill Clinton blush.

Anytime some bag o' douche tries this line of douchebaggery just hit them with Reagan's line about libertarianism being the soul of conservatism.

End of argument unless they want to argue that Reagan wasn't a true conservative. That would be a valid argument given his record, but one that few GOPers today would dare make.

When the right compromise with the wrong, it is a victory for the wrong, and a small step toward a wrong dominated society.

The only "Faux-Con" is Huckabee........ironically.

Huckabee is right! And THANK GOD! Our Liberatarianism is exposing the leftist and traitorous nature of the current GOP. We, the Ron Paul supporters (libertarian in nature if not by party), are putting fear into the neocons.

He couldn't of said anything more truthful.:)

Honestly, I would like to know how the HELL that Huckabee and the bible thumpers got the idea that 'social conservatism' = Conservatism.

Conservatism=PaleoConservatism=Goldwater School= Small government in ALL MATTERS.

Drug war + Empire + Crusaderism =/= Small Government, it just makes them fascists instead of communists.

actually, it does not seem to target us. excerpt:

'Huckabee identifies what he calls the "real threat" to the Republican Party: "libertarianism masked as conservatism." He is not so much concerned with the libertarian candidate Ron Paul's Republican supporters as he is with a strain of mainstream fiscal-conservative thought that demands ideological purity, seeing any tax increase as apostasy and leaving little room for government-driven solutions to people's problems.

:eek: What do you find so terrible about praying for Israel? In my opinion, the Israeli people need all of that they can get to give them the same resolve THAT WE NEED TOO, to replace the public servants in control of our governments who are destroying our respective countries.

Because why would they pray for Israeli Jewish state and not for Iran, Syria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, etc.. you get the point. Why do these phony 'Christians' have this warped biblical view that Israel and America are 'kingdoms of god' and Palestinians should be killed?

You are grouping all so-called Christians together as one. That's a mistake. I pray for everyone.

Note: I'm not too fond of the people who want to accelerate the end of the world either.

Not all Christians. Remember i said "These phony christians". By that I mean these Neo-Con ones that think they're doing Jesus's work by bombing muslim countries.

You're right about the end of the world cult. They only want Israel to survive since it plays a major role in biblical prophecy.

Wasn't Huck singing praises to Reagan during the campaign and debates. :p :rolleyes:

"If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals–if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is." -- Ronald Reagan
