After I said that if we formed a third party we’d never, ever win another presidential election, EVER, I received quite a few letters from readers who think differently. Here’s a typical one...

From Stephen R:

You say that you’re against a third party and that we’d never again win an election if that happens. I totally disagree! If we abandon the Republican Party in major numbers with the right candidate, I think we’d stand a better chance rather than having the same old s*** on the menu!

What chance will the Republicans have when most of us are totally fed up with the crap that we’ve listened to for years and nothing changing (excluding President Trump)! The rest of them are just filling a seat and going along with the Democrat BS! They talk a good line when in front of the cameras, but go along with the Dems behind closed doors and to hell with their constituents! What good will the Republican Party be when 2/3 of us will not vote for another Republican candidate? I’ll vote Democrat just to remove these spineless cowards that are in office trying to say that they have our backs!!! I’m done!!!!

From the Gov:

Thanks for writing, Stephen. Obviously, our party has reached a crossroads, and it’s critically important how we decide to go forward from this point. But if I may offer some “famous last words,” I can think of none more appropriate than what you just said: “I’ll vote Democrat just to remove these spineless cowards...”

Vote Democrat? With all due respect, Stephen, I have six words for you:

Are you out of your mind?

The reason we have such a disaster in the U.S. Senate now is that Georgia Republicans, fed up by the Nov. 3 outcome, refused to vote Republican, staying home on the day of the senatorial run-off elections and giving their state two of the most radical left-wing senators ever to be on the ballot, and that’s saying something. We know now that if they had come out for the Republican candidates in numbers comparable to their November 3 turnout, they would have kept the Senate out of the hands of radical leftists. Gosh, I hope all those fed-up conservative Georgia voters are happy now.

Let’s do some basic math. Right now, the two major parties, in terms of numbers, are pretty evenly split. If the 2/3 of Republicans who, as you say, are thoroughly fed up and refuse to vote for another Republican DO vote for a third party candidate instead, that will give the third party candidate a whopping 2/3 of what the anti-Democrat vote would have been otherwise. The Republican gets the other 1/3. These two parties will split about half the total vote.

But the Democrats get almost all of the other half, which means they WIN, as all they need is a plurality. Obviously, 1/3 of the Republican vote isn’t going to get us squat. But even 2/3 of that vote isn’t going to get us squat, either. One thing about Democrats: they do stick together. And if they stick together and we fragment, with no more than 2/3 of our vote going to any one candidate, guess which party wins?

That’s right, the Democrats, every time. Go to the head of the class.

When Democrat Party candidate Bill Clinton won in 1992, he got a whopping 43 percent of the popular vote. The other two major candidates, Republican incumbent George H. W. Bush and Independent Party candidate and Texas billionaire H. Ross Perot, essentially split the rest; that “giant sucking sound” you heard was Perot sucking up 19 percent of the vote (the most a third party candidate has ever received, but it translated into ZERO electoral votes). So victory went to Clinton, the Democrat. Some analysts said that Clinton would’ve beaten Bush anyway, but we don’t know about that. A huge number of conservative Republicans rejected a second Bush term and voted for Perot, giving us the Democrats.

Let’s go farther back in history, to when former President Teddy Roosevelt tried a comeback with a third party, the Bull Moose Party. In 1912, a group of Republicans dissatisfied with President William Howard Taft formed the Bull Moose Party specifically for TR to run again. (He supposedly had said he was “fit as a bull moose” to run again.) The Bull Moose Party was “progressive” for the time and favored such new-fangled ideas as women’s suffrage, direct election of U.S. senators, and various social reforms. Roosevelt ran on what he called the “Square Deal,” based on fair business competition and more welfare programs for the needy.

Anyway, his candidacy divided the Republican Party, and Democrat Woodrow Wilson easily won. Would you like to hear about Woodrow Wilson and his administration? That’s a topic for another day, but for now let’s just say it would have been much better if TR hadn’t divided the Republican Party and let Wilson and his pals glide into the Oval Office.

Things the left would love to see from us:

1) An uprising. In fact, the Capitol breach played into their hands so well that if it hadn’t happened, they would have had to create it; make of that statement what you will. The Capitol incident gave the left all the excuse they needed to label every one of us a “domestic terrorist” and start taking our rights away. As frustrated as you might be, DO NOT give them any more reason to do that. Believe me, they are just waiting for this.

2) A third party. The left would LOVE this. Aside from the reasons mentioned above, a third party is not going to have the “ground game” of the well-oiled machine that is the Democrat Party. All this will do is split the Republican Party vote and ensure Democrat victories time after time. I know many of you don’t want to hear this, but it’s the hard truth.

3) Giving up. Some conservatives are now saying the fight is over and we have lost. Why bother voting if the elections are rigged? Why bother tweeting if you’ll just be banned? Just stay home and wait for the end. But this would be a gift to the left. When you give up, they push even harder.

We have to fix our party, from the inside. We do have a few outstanding incumbents, but for the RINOS, we have to find solid, articulate conservative candidates for primary challenges. That’s what the “progressives” in the Democrat Party did, through organizations such as Justice Democrats, the group that recruited AOC. Democrats organize like mad, and if they aren’t satisfied with their incumbents, they challenge them. This is what we’re going to have to do with our own who fail to represent our views and values. Perhaps Trump could help with this. We must go into every race with the strongest ticket we can find, work like our freedom depends on it (because it does) and be assertive poll watchers!

But, again, the worst thing conservatives can do is split off and form a third party. Don’t even think about it!

    I disagree with you Governor, the Republicans are spineless and just point fingers. Example before the last election, we received information, for months, about all underhanded things Obama, FBI, NIA and other agency's did against President Trump. All the investigations yielded nothing. No one went to jail or was even taken to court explain that. Also the person in white House now, bragged about witholding money from Ukraine, nothing was done, them we have Clinton - server in closet, classified emails on private server, all other laws she broke, free pass by Comey, and once again nothing. The Republicans are spineless and don't deserve my vote. No way I vote Democrat, so what choice do I have?

    I believe the single biggest action we could all take is to push for a convention of states in order to get an amendment vote on TERM LIMITS. The congress will NEVER bring a term limits bill to a vote and pass it. The lifetime, “professional” politician is the greatest threat to our Democratic republic and Absolutely must be addressed. It you take a look at the amount of time these elected officials have been in office and their net worth from when they began to where it is now my question is, “How is that possible on your government salary?” I work for the government and I make a good salary, but I am not going to be a millionaire when I retire or stop working for the government??!! And, Mike, you were our pastor and Beech St and I heard you are moving back to AR to help Sarah in her run for Governor. How about you primary Bozeman? Please!

    Pres Trump exposed the total corruption in not only both parties, but our institutions as well (FBI - and it goes deeper than ‘upper’ mgmt, lots of FBI agents were aware of the crimes being committed by the agency and not a peep, CIA, DIA, NSC etc) and the news media where journalism, a protector of democracy is dead as well. I am a Veteran and have never missed voting in an election, but Nov 20 was my last vote. With the existing voter fraud, which will not be fixed, millions of new ‘legal’ voters via amnesty that will be eligible to vote moving forward, and the lack of ANY Rep, including many fine true conservatives, who can draw across party lines like Pres Trump did (because he was beholden to no one but the American people) the Republicans will never hold the White House again during my lifetime and I believe ever. Now more people get ‘free’ stuff than provide it thru paying taxes, instead of everyone working for and desiring a better job, wage, future etc, the view is being successful is immoral and the way to have a better life is to take it from someone who is. So I am part of the FED UP class, and do not plan to vote again, I say bring on the pain and bring it on as fast and hard as the Dems can...there is a reason America cannot be found as a great power in the end times, we won’t be...and looking at us even today, you can see why...just look at Venezuela and other fine socialist countries and you can sadly see our future...unfortunately.

    You say the Republican party needs to organize like the Democrats have. What organizations are being formed and how do we get involved besides just giving them dollars?

    02/06/2021 09:08 AM

    With respect Mr Huckabee, I simply cannot understand your reasoning in the reply to Stephen R. I WAS. A huge supporter of Republicans...especially since Trump. I feel as if I’ve been raped (I do know what that’s like) by my government. My party..Republicans.. have stabbed me in the back when they stabbed President Trump. I will NEVER FORGIVE OR FORGET what they have done.... it has deeply scarred my trust . Why would I “VOTE” when it’s only a simple act to follow through in order to appease we pions to allow us to pretend our voice counts. THEN TO TOP THAT OFF.... THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TURN TRAITOR AND AGREE THE ACT OF STEALING OUR VOICE IS APPROVED BY REPUBLICANS ALSO. ?????????????????? I was devastated... ! Knowing what I know now, seeing it transpire, I will NEVER be a part of a traitor, treasonous, weak, spineless, hypocrisy of acts . Until I WITNESS these thugs being jailed and or exterminated in same way we little people are, until I witness some corrections and TRUE means of allowing my voice.... I’ll not bother participating in the scam portraying an election... a call for our peoples voices .... my time is just as valuable as theirs...I’ll not beg them to rape me!! I KNOW what I know and know what I see..... and I see absolutely no need to vote in another election when the real results will be whoever they want PLACED in the Positions. I KNOW we were scammed.... America was scammed... and now, just a few weeks later.... the talk is allllll about the “next election “ ????. Excuse me??? Let’s all just forget how it’s just an act for the minions to methodically go do as if the results mattered !!! Not that it matters but I do know I’m not the only one that feels that way. I have gotten most of my nieces involved in this election and they were excited to vote for first time in their lives.... I had convinced them that their word/voice counts... now, they don’t want to discuss politics with me... they saw what their party did ... they saw the party turn on a dime from their previous words and they saw how the slime bag spineless thugs turned on their President and they saw how the justice system REALLY is. We are a proud strong people and we KNOW REALITY. Reality is there is two levels of justice system...and laws are made up as they go along , judges are a joke (it’s who ya know and who’s been blowed), and Elections are just as big of a joke . Prove me wrong please. ???

    Mcconnell lost Georgia, Joe Biden and 2 democrats said if you elect the 2 democrats the $2000 is out the door.
    Biden wants to give 1400 to almost every one, Republicans want to give to low income workers and leave a lot of us out of the money, They should only put their energy against the liberal States and cities that would get lots of money

    I am a third party independent. Did people forget about that party? I think Trump should go as the third party of his own. Why? Because we the people had had it with the Democrats and the Republicans. Plus it will make voting for him much easier. Dems and Repubs can vote for him. The Republicans who gave him a hard time for the past four years, and of course, the Democrats whine for four years. Throwing out makeup stories. My opinion is that Trump should go for a third party. I will change my party too. Just think 80 million people would change their party for Trump. It is up to President Trump.

    If we had a third party whose platform is honesty,transparency, decriminalize drugs, let women chose about their bodies, (you can’t tell us how morally to live). And train ALL police on the constitution and how to be customer friendly. And stop giving away our tax dollars to foreign powers.

    Governor,

    Thank you for your response to Stephen. I too am fed up. As badly as I wanted to vote against Mitch McConnell this last time, I could not. The reason, Amy McGrath!! However, had she been a moderate, I may have voted for her. Your comments have cemented my allegiance to the Republican Party in future elections. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. Would love to see a Huckabee/Huckabee ticket in 2024!!!!

  • Franklin Sowers

    02/06/2021 07:56 AM

    With all due respect You are part of the problem sir. At 60 I have never voted for a non Republican. Now that my vote doesn’t count you say voting for the same old crap is the answer. Your vote doesn’t count and you are foolish to think it does. When the other guys cheat and you do nothing continuing to cast votes is madness. They laugh every time someone says we will vote them out next time. You vote didn’t count and never will again. Nobody’s vote matters. And the cowardly Republicans were part of giving in to them. Half the Republican Party is in bed with them and working against us as we speak. Any one who says let’s pretend your vote counts is the enemy. Republicans ARE as much an enemy as any democrat. Voting for the Devil is wrong even if he is a Republican!!!

Not believing Or having the Faith that we would turn, repent& do what’s right? Keep the Faith! God IS still in Control, He still sits on the Throne and He still answers Prayer!????Pray for our party, get involved! This is not a spectator’s sport! Write, Call, Visit, Email, help where you can!

    I know you're against the third party idea for all the classical and logical reasons however, I believe enough excitement could be generated for a party that was new, conservative, and dedicated to America First values. Many conservatives quit voting long ago feeling disappointed, disenfranchised, and even betrayed by the Republican Party. Those voters don't vote for Democrats, they just don't vote. A new party would be giving those disgruntled voters something to get excited about. Another bite of the apple if you will. If you add those reinvigorated voters to the voters that are currently ready to flee the Republican Party you should have a very formidable voting block. The remanence of the Republican Party would look something like the Green Party and pose no threat. Two many times there have been promises and honest attempts to fix the Republican Party to no avail. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. America First Is a very exciting idea, however, I don't think today's Republican Party can get there.

    You sir have been looking at the political parties from the inside for so long you have become blinded by the corruption committed by both political parties. They are both wings on the same bird ! From the outset of the 2016 election the news media picked the candidates hillary clinton and jeb bush. Both corrupted politicians. Donald Trump ran as a Republican but if he had run as a Democrat he would still have won the presidential election ! The news media would have hated him just as much and just as relentlessly. If you or any of the other Republicans would have won the nomination the news media and hillary clinton would have smeared you with the same brush that they tarred trump with. Did you honestly think Herman Caine did what he was accused of by the media ! What about the smear job on Dr Ben Carson who probably had the highest honor and integrity of the whole bunch of you politicians from both sides of the political aisle combined, and yet they smeared him with B S ! ! Ted Cruz pulled a dirty trick out of his bag of tricks at the Iowa primary telling everyone that trump had pulled out of the race because he had decided to hold a fund raiser for Veterans ! Contrary to what you believe, if Ross Perot hadn't pulled out of the presidential race and jumped back in he would have won the presidency in a landslide just like trump did.
    I suppose you believe that hillary clinton didn't pay for the "Steele Dosia " and trump really did collude with the Russians. The load of trash you are spewing here is exactly why you couldn't beat trump because we recognize garbage when we see it !
    We out here in rural America aren't as ignorant as you politicians believe we are.
    We know Seth Rich was feeding Juliann Assange information from within the DNC and that he was murdered for it ! We listened to that snake in the grass comey tell us about all of the national security violations hillary clinton committed and than exonerated her because she " DIDN'T INTEND TO VIOLATE NATIONAL SECURITY " ! Again sir we recognize what crap looks like and that crap sandwich smelled like fresh crap falling out of Comey's lying face as soon as he said it !
    I used to think that you might have been one of the good guy's, but you sir just crapped all over any integrity you think you still possess !
    Thank God you never made it to the White House with your perception of the American People ! Your opinion of the Citizens of Georgia not showing up to vote shows your blindness to the Truth ! They DID SHOW UP ! In Fact They Showed Up In Such Large Numbers That The Criminals had to quit counting the votes around 11 pm so they could pull duplicate ballots out from under tables after the Republican pole workers left because they were told to go home and counting would resume in the morning.
    Once again sir you have soiled your integrity with another load of crap !
    Hillary Clinton called us deplorables and irredeemable....
    You just called us Stupid and insinuated that we didn't show up to vote Republican when the down ballot Republicans won all of their seats with the exception of the Two that were contested. I'll bet you that an honest examination of those ballots were just as fraudulent as the presidential ballots !
    Sidney Powell knows it, Lin Wood Knows It, Rudy Giuliani Knows It, Mike Lindell Knows It. The CIA Knows It. The Guy in Italy who wrote the code to rig the Machines Knows It and has given a Sworn Confession In Front of The Italian Court Which is in the hands of the trump team !
    Us hicks out here in rural America know how to use the internet and we have the ability and intellect to research the Crap you crap shovelers are throwing at us ! And We Ain't Dumb enough to believe it without checking other sources !
    I challenge you to do an honest poll of your listeners and see if they believe what I just said unedited vs what you said about the Georgia Voter's. Perhaps you should go to Georgia and talk with locals there and ask them what they think of what you are accusing them of and this time have your ears open and listen to them instead of telling them what you think of them !

    Mike you are missing what has happened right in front of you. Americans had a president who cares about them and the country. The left stole the election and laughed in our faces. There’s no republican party left to vote for when our votes don’t count anymore. I doubt a third party could win even if every trump voter votes for them. The left will just cheat again. You’re worried about splitting votes when I guarantee you in 2 years less than half of registered Republicans even bother to vote. That’s what will get the conservatives booted out of office. I don’t like it anymore than you do but with the deck stacked against us no amount of grass roots anything will help.

    It’s occurred to me that the dems will have a hard time keeping illegals who cross the newly opened southern border, and maybe their old illegals, too. New proposed speech sensitivity laws will make it illegal to use gender designations. Spanish nouns all have gender designations and those who speak Spanish will be unable to talk. They’ll all go back where they came from and not be able to vote for the dems, for which reason they were brought here in the first place.

    The Democrats' have been very busy. They brought over the Covid-19 virus and spread it around. Then they said it was all Trump's fault that it was spreading when they said it was no problem. They make up things for impeachment. This when many Democrats have stirred up more trouble. The Democrats did have dead people voting. Say no need for ID to vote it is too hard for many to have ID but need ID to go into a federal building, travel and even to get a Covid-19 shot! So I guess ID is important. But important enough for voting. The Democrats know the voting was corrupt or they would have allowed problem states to be checked. They would have welcomed these results. But when a current person acting like he is suppose to be a president and has been signing so many orders with different signatures, one wonders who is really signing the orders???

Democrats organize like mad, and if they aren’t satisfied with their incumbents, they challenge them. This is what we’re going to have to do with our own who fail to represent our views and values.

Example before the last election, we received information, for months, about all underhanded things Obama, FBI, NIA and other agency's did against President Trump. All the investigations yielded nothing. No one went to jail or was even taken to court explain that. Also the person in white House now, bragged about witholding money from Ukraine, nothing was done, them we have Clinton - server in closet, classified emails on private server, all other laws she broke, free pass by Comey, and once again nothing. The Republicans are spineless and don't deserve my vote. No way I vote Democrat, so what choice do I have?

    I believe the single biggest action we could all take is to push for a convention of states in order to get an amendment vote on TERM LIMITS. The congress will NEVER bring a term limits bill to a vote and pass it. The lifetime, “professional” politician is the greatest threat to our Democratic republic and Absolutely must be addressed. It you take a look at the amount of time these elected officials have been in office and their net worth from when they began to where it is now my question is, “How is that possible on your government salary?” I work for the government and I make a good salary, but I am not going to be a millionaire when I retire or stop working for the government??!! And, Mike, you were our pastor and Beech St and I heard you are moving back to AR to help Sarah in her run for Governor. How about you primary Bozeman? Please!

    Pres Trump exposed the total corruption in not only both parties, but our institutions as well (FBI - and it goes deeper than ‘upper’ mgmt, lots of FBI agents were aware of the crimes being committed by the agency and not a peep, CIA, DIA, NSC etc) and the news media where journalism, a protector of democracy is dead as well. I am a Veteran and have never missed voting in an election, but Nov 20 was my last vote. With the existing voter fraud, which will not be fixed, millions of new ‘legal’ voters via amnesty that will be eligible to vote moving forward, and the lack of ANY Rep, including many fine true conservatives, who can draw across party lines like Pres Trump did (because he was beholden to no one but the American people) the Republicans will never hold the White House again during my lifetime and I believe ever. Now more people get ‘free’ stuff than provide it thru paying taxes, instead of everyone working for and desiring a better job, wage, future etc, the view is being successful is immoral and the way to have a better life is to take it from someone who is. So I am part of the FED UP class, and do not plan to vote again, I say bring on the pain and bring it on as fast and hard as the Dems can...there is a reason America cannot be found as a great power in the end times, we won’t be...and looking at us even today, you can see why...just look at Venezuela and other fine socialist countries and you can sadly see our future...unfortunately.

    I am a third party independent. Did people forget about that party? I think Trump should go as the third party of his own. Why? Because we the people had had it with the Democrats and the Republicans. Plus it will make voting for him much easier. Dems and Repubs can vote for him. The Republicans who gave him a hard time for the past four years, and of course, the Democrats whine for four years. Throwing out makeup stories. My opinion is that Trump should go for a third party. I will change my party too. Just think 80 million people would change their party for Trump. It is up to President Trump.

    Thank you for your response to Stephen. I too am fed up. As badly as I wanted to vote against Mitch McConnell this last time, I could not. The reason, Amy McGrath!! However, had she been a moderate, I may have voted for her. Your comments have cemented my allegiance to the Republican Party in future elections. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. Would love to see a Huckabee/Huckabee ticket in 2024!!!!

    With all due respect You are part of the problem sir. At 60 I have never voted for a non Republican. Now that my vote doesn’t count you say voting for the same old crap is the answer. Your vote doesn’t count and you are foolish to think it does. When the other guys cheat and you do nothing continuing to cast votes is madness. They laugh every time someone says we will vote them out next time. You vote didn’t count and never will again. Nobody’s vote matters. And the cowardly Republicans were part of giving in to them. Half the Republican Party is in bed with them and working against us as we speak. Any one who says let’s pretend your vote counts is the enemy. Republicans ARE as much an enemy as any democrat. Voting for the Devil is wrong even if he is a Republican!!!

    I know you're against the third party idea for all the classical and logical reasons however, I believe enough excitement could be generated for a party that was new, conservative, and dedicated to America First values. Many conservatives quit voting long ago feeling disappointed, disenfranchised, and even betrayed by the Republican Party. Those voters don't vote for Democrats, they just don't vote. A new party would be giving those disgruntled voters something to get excited about. Another bite of the apple if you will. If you add those reinvigorated voters to the voters that are currently ready to flee the Republican Party you should have a very formidable voting block. The remanence of the Republican Party would look something like the Green Party and pose no threat. Two many times there have been promises and honest attempts to fix the Republican Party to no avail. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. America First Is a very exciting idea, however, I don't think today's Republican Party can get there.

    You sir have been looking at the political parties from the inside for so long you have become blinded by the corruption committed by both political parties. They are both wings on the same bird ! From the outset of the 2016 election the news media picked the candidates hillary clinton and jeb bush. Both corrupted politicians. Donald Trump ran as a Republican but if he had run as a Democrat he would still have won the presidential election ! The news media would have hated him just as much and just as relentlessly. If you or any of the other Republicans would have won the nomination the news media and hillary clinton would have smeared you with the same brush that they tarred trump with. Did you honestly think Herman Caine did what he was accused of by the media ! What about the smear job on Dr Ben Carson who probably had the highest honor and integrity of the whole bunch of you politicians from both sides of the political aisle combined, and yet they smeared him with B S ! ! Ted Cruz pulled a dirty trick out of his bag of tricks at the Iowa primary telling everyone that trump had pulled out of the race because he had decided to hold a fund raiser for Veterans ! Contrary to what you believe, if Ross Perot hadn't pulled out of the presidential race and jumped back in he would have won the presidency in a landslide just like trump did.
    I suppose you believe that hillary clinton didn't pay for the "Steele Dosia " and trump really did collude with the Russians. The load of trash you are spewing here is exactly why you couldn't beat trump because we recognize garbage when we see it !
    We out here in rural America aren't as ignorant as you politicians believe we are.
    We know Seth Rich was feeding Juliann Assange information from within the DNC and that he was murdered for it ! We listened to that snake in the grass comey tell us about all of the national security violations hillary clinton committed and than exonerated her because she " DIDN'T INTEND TO VIOLATE NATIONAL SECURITY " ! Again sir we recognize what crap looks like and that crap sandwich smelled like fresh crap falling out of Comey's lying face as soon as he said it !
    I used to think that you might have been one of the good guy's, but you sir just crapped all over any integrity you think you still possess !
    Thank God you never made it to the White House with your perception of the American People ! Your opinion of the Citizens of Georgia not showing up to vote shows your blindness to the Truth ! They DID SHOW UP ! In Fact They Showed Up In Such Large Numbers That The Criminals had to quit counting the votes around 11 pm so they could pull duplicate ballots out from under tables after the Republican pole workers left because they were told to go home and counting would resume in the morning.
    Once again sir you have soiled your integrity with another load of crap !
    Hillary Clinton called us deplorables and irredeemable....
    You just called us Stupid and insinuated that we didn't show up to vote Republican when the down ballot Republicans won all of their seats with the exception of the Two that were contested. I'll bet you that an honest examination of those ballots were just as fraudulent as the presidential ballots !
    Sidney Powell knows it, Lin Wood Knows It, Rudy Giuliani Knows It, Mike Lindell Knows It. The CIA Knows It. The Guy in Italy who wrote the code to rig the Machines Knows It and has given a Sworn Confession In Front of The Italian Court Which is in the hands of the trump team !
    Us hicks out here in rural America know how to use the internet and we have the ability and intellect to research the Crap you crap shovelers are throwing at us ! And We Ain't Dumb enough to believe it without checking other sources !
    I challenge you to do an honest poll of your listeners and see if they believe what I just said unedited vs what you said about the Georgia Voter's. Perhaps you should go to Georgia and talk with locals there and ask them what they think of what you are accusing them of and this time have your ears open and listen to them instead of telling them what you think of them !

    Mike you are missing what has happened right in front of you. Americans had a president who cares about them and the country. The left stole the election and laughed in our faces. There’s no republican party left to vote for when our votes don’t count anymore. I doubt a third party could win even if every trump voter votes for them. The left will just cheat again. You’re worried about splitting votes when I guarantee you in 2 years less than half of registered Republicans even bother to vote. That’s what will get the conservatives booted out of office. I don’t like it anymore than you do but with the deck stacked against us no amount of grass roots anything will help.

New proposed speech sensitivity laws will make it illegal to use gender designations. Spanish nouns all have gender designations and those who speak Spanish will be unable to talk.

    The Democrats' have been very busy. They brought over the Covid-19 virus and spread it around. Then they said it was all Trump's fault that it was spreading when they said it was no problem. They make up things for impeachment. This when many Democrats have stirred up more trouble. The Democrats did have dead people voting. Say no need for ID to vote it is too hard for many to have ID but need ID to go into a federal building, travel and even to get a Covid-19 shot! So I guess ID is important. But important enough for voting. The Democrats know the voting was corrupt or they would have allowed problem states to be checked. They would have welcomed these results. But when a current person acting like he is suppose to be a president and has been signing so many orders with different signatures, one wonders who is really signing the orders???

Watch "Huckabee"

February 5, 2021

After I said that if we formed a third party we’d never, ever win another presidential election, EVER, I received quite a few letters from readers who think differently. Here’s a typical one...

From Stephen R:

You say that you’re against a third party and that we’d never again win an election if that happens. I totally disagree! If we abandon the Republican Party in major numbers with the right candidate, I think we’d stand a better chance rather than having the same old s*** on the menu!

What chance will the Republicans have when most of us are totally fed up with the crap that we’ve listened to for years and nothing changing (excluding President Trump)! The rest of them are just filling a seat and going along with the Democrat BS! They talk a good line when in front of the cameras, but go along with the Dems behind closed doors and to hell with their constituents! What good will the Republican Party be when 2/3 of us will not vote for another Republican candidate? I’ll vote Democrat just to remove these spineless cowards that are in office trying to say that they have our backs!!! I’m done!!!!

From the Gov:

Thanks for writing, Stephen. Obviously, our party has reached a crossroads, and it’s critically important how we decide to go forward from this point. But if I may offer some “famous last words,” I can think of none more appropriate than what you just said: “I’ll vote Democrat just to remove these spineless cowards...”

Vote Democrat? With all due respect, Stephen, I have six words for you:

Are you out of your mind?

The reason we have such a disaster in the U.S. Senate now is that Georgia Republicans, fed up by the Nov. 3 outcome, refused to vote Republican, staying home on the day of the senatorial run-off elections and giving their state two of the most radical left-wing senators ever to be on the ballot, and that’s saying something. We know now that if they had come out for the Republican candidates in numbers comparable to their November 3 turnout, they would have kept the Senate out of the hands of radical leftists. Gosh, I hope all those fed-up conservative Georgia voters are happy now.

Let’s do some basic math. Right now, the two major parties, in terms of numbers, are pretty evenly split. If the 2/3 of Republicans who, as you say, are thoroughly fed up and refuse to vote for another Republican DO vote for a third party candidate instead, that will give the third party candidate a whopping 2/3 of what the anti-Democrat vote would have been otherwise. The Republican gets the other 1/3. These two parties will split about half the total vote.

But the Democrats get almost all of the other half, which means they WIN, as all they need is a plurality. Obviously, 1/3 of the Republican vote isn’t going to get us squat. But even 2/3 of that vote isn’t going to get us squat, either. One thing about Democrats: they do stick together. And if they stick together and we fragment, with no more than 2/3 of our vote going to any one candidate, guess which party wins?

That’s right, the Democrats, every time. Go to the head of the class.

When Democrat Party candidate Bill Clinton won in 1992, he got a whopping 43 percent of the popular vote. The other two major candidates, Republican incumbent George H. W. Bush and Independent Party candidate and Texas billionaire H. Ross Perot, essentially split the rest; that “giant sucking sound” you heard was Perot sucking up 19 percent of the vote (the most a third party candidate has ever received, but it translated into ZERO electoral votes). So victory went to Clinton, the Democrat. Some analysts said that Clinton would’ve beaten Bush anyway, but we don’t know about that. A huge number of conservative Republicans rejected a second Bush term and voted for Perot, giving us the Democrats.

Let’s go farther back in history, to when former President Teddy Roosevelt tried a comeback with a third party, the Bull Moose Party. In 1912, a group of Republicans dissatisfied with President William Howard Taft formed the Bull Moose Party specifically for TR to run again. (He supposedly had said he was “fit as a bull moose” to run again.) The Bull Moose Party was “progressive” for the time and favored such new-fangled ideas as women’s suffrage, direct election of U.S. senators, and various social reforms. Roosevelt ran on what he called the “Square Deal,” based on fair business competition and more welfare programs for the needy.

Anyway, his candidacy divided the Republican Party, and Democrat Woodrow Wilson easily won. Would you like to hear about Woodrow Wilson and his administration? That’s a topic for another day, but for now let’s just say it would have been much better if TR hadn’t divided the Republican Party and let Wilson and his pals glide into the Oval Office.

Things the left would love to see from us:

1) An uprising. In fact, the Capitol breach played into their hands so well that if it hadn’t happened, they would have had to create it; make of that statement what you will. The Capitol incident gave the left all the excuse they needed to label every one of us a “domestic terrorist” and start taking our rights away. As frustrated as you might be, DO NOT give them any more reason to do that. Believe me, they are just waiting for this.

2) A third party. The left would LOVE this. Aside from the reasons mentioned above, a third party is not going to have the “ground game” of the well-oiled machine that is the Democrat Party. All this will do is split the Republican Party vote and ensure Democrat victories time after time. I know many of you don’t want to hear this, but it’s the hard truth.

3) Giving up. Some conservatives are now saying the fight is over and we have lost. Why bother voting if the elections are rigged? Why bother tweeting if you’ll just be banned? Just stay home and wait for the end. But this would be a gift to the left. When you give up, they push even harder.

We have to fix our party, from the inside. We do have a few outstanding incumbents, but for the RINOS, we have to find solid, articulate conservative candidates for primary challenges. That’s what the “progressives” in the Democrat Party did, through organizations such as Justice Democrats, the group that recruited AOC. Democrats organize like mad, and if they aren’t satisfied with their incumbents, they challenge them. This is what we’re going to have to do with our own who fail to represent our views and values. Perhaps Trump could help with this. We must go into every race with the strongest ticket we can find, work like our freedom depends on it (because it does) and be assertive poll watchers!

But, again, the worst thing conservatives can do is split off and form a third party. Don’t even think about it!

The Republicans who gave him a hard time for the past four years, and of course, the Democrats whine for four years. Throwing out makeup stories. My opinion is that Trump should go for a third party. I will change my party too. Just think 80 million people would change their party for Trump. It is up to President Trump.

However, had she been a moderate, I may have voted for her. Your comments have cemented my allegiance to the Republican Party in future elections. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

    With all due respect You are part of the problem sir. At 60 I have never voted for a non Republican. Now that my vote doesn’t count you say voting for the same old crap is the answer. Your vote doesn’t count and you are foolish to think it does. When the other guys cheat and you do nothing continuing to cast votes is madness. They laugh every time someone says we will vote them out next time. You vote didn’t count and never will again. Nobody’s vote matters. And the cowardly Republicans were part of giving in to them. Half the Republican Party is in bed with them and working against us as we speak. Any one who says let’s pretend your vote counts is the enemy. Republicans ARE as much an enemy as any democrat.

    I know you're against the third party idea for all the classical and logical reasons however, I believe enough excitement could be generated for a party that was new, conservative, and dedicated to America First values. Many conservatives quit voting long ago feeling disappointed, disenfranchised, and even betrayed by the Republican Party. Those voters don't vote for Democrats, they just don't vote. A new party would be giving those disgruntled voters something to get excited about. Another bite of the apple if you will. If you add those reinvigorated voters to the voters that are currently ready to flee the Republican Party you should have a very formidable voting block. The remanence of the Republican Party would look something like the Green Party and pose no threat. Two many times there have been promises and honest attempts to fix the Republican Party to no avail. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. America First Is a very exciting idea, however, I don't think today's Republican Party can get there.

    You sir have been looking at the political parties from the inside for so long you have become blinded by the corruption committed by both political parties. They are both wings on the same bird ! From the outset of the 2016 election the news media picked the candidates hillary clinton and jeb bush. Both corrupted politicians. Donald Trump ran as a Republican but if he had run as a Democrat he would still have won the presidential election ! The news media would have hated him just as much and just as relentlessly. If you or any of the other Republicans would have won the nomination the news media and hillary clinton would have smeared you with the same brush that they tarred trump with. Did you honestly think Herman Caine did what he was accused of by the media ! What about the smear job on Dr Ben Carson who probably had the highest honor and integrity of the whole bunch of you politicians from both sides of the political aisle combined, and yet they smeared him with B S ! ! Ted Cruz pulled a dirty trick out of his bag of tricks at the Iowa primary telling everyone that trump had pulled out of the race because he had decided to hold a fund raiser for Veterans ! Contrary to what you believe, if Ross Perot hadn't pulled out of the presidential race and jumped back in he would have won the presidency in a landslide just like trump did.
    I suppose you believe that hillary clinton didn't pay for the "Steele Dosia " and trump really did collude with the Russians. The load of trash you are spewing here is exactly why you couldn't beat trump because we recognize garbage when we see it !
    We out here in rural America aren't as ignorant as you politicians believe we are.
    We know Seth Rich was feeding Juliann Assange information from within the DNC and that he was murdered for it ! We listened to that snake in the grass comey tell us about all of the national security violations hillary clinton committed and than exonerated her because she " DIDN'T INTEND TO VIOLATE NATIONAL SECURITY " ! Again sir we recognize what crap looks like and that crap sandwich smelled like fresh crap falling out of Comey's lying face as soon as he said it !
    I used to think that you might have been one of the good guy's, but you sir just crapped all over any integrity you think you still possess !
    Thank God you never made it to the White House with your perception of the American People ! Your opinion of the Citizens of Georgia not showing up to vote shows your blindness to the Truth ! They DID SHOW UP ! In Fact They Showed Up In Such Large Numbers That The Criminals had to quit counting the votes around 11 pm so they could pull duplicate ballots out from under tables after the Republican pole workers left because they were told to go home and counting would resume in the morning.
    Once again sir you have soiled your integrity with another load of crap !
    Hillary Clinton called us deplorables and irredeemable....
    You just called us Stupid and insinuated that we didn't show up to vote Republican when the down ballot Republicans won all of their seats with the exception of the Two that were contested. I'll bet you that an honest examination of those ballots were just as fraudulent as the presidential ballots !
    Sidney Powell knows it, Lin Wood Knows It, Rudy Giuliani Knows It, Mike Lindell Knows It. The CIA Knows It. The Guy in Italy who wrote the code to rig the Machines Knows It and has given a Sworn Confession In Front of The Italian Court Which is in the hands of the trump team !
    Us hicks out here in rural America know how to use the internet and we have the ability and intellect to research the Crap you crap shovelers are throwing at us ! And We Ain't Dumb enough to believe it without checking other sources !
    I challenge you to do an honest poll of your listeners and see if they believe what I just said unedited vs what you said about the Georgia Voter's. Perhaps you should go to Georgia and talk with locals there and ask them what they think of what you are accusing them of and this time have your ears open and listen to them instead of telling them what you think of them !

    Mike you are missing what has happened right in front of you. Americans had a president who cares about them and the country. The left stole the election and laughed in our faces. There’s no republican party left to vote for when our votes don’t count anymore. I doubt a third party could win even if every trump voter votes for them. The left will just cheat again. You’re worried about splitting votes when I guarantee you in 2 years less than half of registered Republicans even bother to vote. That’s what will get the conservatives booted out of office. I don’t like it anymore than you do but with the deck stacked against us no amount of grass roots anything will help.

    It’s occurred to me that the dems will have a hard time keeping illegals who cross the newly opened southern border, and maybe their old illegals, too. New proposed speech sensitivity laws will make it illegal to use gender designations. Spanish nouns all have gender designations and those who speak Spanish will be unable to talk. They’ll all go back where they came from and not be able to vote for the dems, for which reason they were brought here in the first place.

    The Democrats' have been very busy. They brought over the Covid-19 virus and spread it around. Then they said it was all Trump's fault that it was spreading when they said it was no problem. They make up things for impeachment. This when many Democrats have stirred up more trouble. The Democrats did have dead people voting. Say no need for ID to vote it is too hard for many to have ID but need ID to go into a federal building, travel and even to get a Covid-19 shot! So I guess ID is important. But important enough for voting. The Democrats know the voting was corrupt or they would have allowed problem states to be checked. They would have welcomed these results. But when a current person acting like he is suppose to be a president and has been signing so many orders with different signatures, one wonders who is really signing the orders???

After I said that if we formed a third party we’d never, ever win another presidential election, EVER, I received quite a few letters from readers who think differently. Here’s a typical one...

From Stephen R:

You say that you’re against a third party and that we’d never again win an election if that happens. I totally disagree! If we abandon the Republican Party in major numbers with the right candidate, I think we’d stand a better chance rather than having the same old s*** on the menu!

What chance will the Republicans have when most of us are totally fed up with the crap that we’ve listened to for years and nothing changing (excluding President Trump)! The rest of them are just filling a seat and going along with the Democrat BS! They talk a good line when in front of the cameras, but go along with the Dems behind closed doors and to hell with their constituents! What good will the Republican Party be when 2/3 of us will not vote for another Republican candidate? I’ll vote Democrat just to remove these spineless cowards that are in office trying to say that they have our backs!!! I’m done!!!!

From the Gov:

Thanks for writing, Stephen. Obviously, our party has reached a crossroads, and it’s critically important how we decide to go forward from this point. But if I may offer some “famous last words,” I can think of none more appropriate than what you just said: “I’ll vote Democrat just to remove these spineless cowards...”

Vote Democrat? With all due respect, Stephen, I have six words for you:

Are you out of your mind?

The reason we have such a disaster in the U.S. Senate now is that Georgia Republicans, fed up by the Nov. 3 outcome, refused to vote Republican, staying home on the day of the senatorial run-off elections and giving their state two of the most radical left-wing senators ever to be on the ballot, and that’s saying something. We know now that if they had come out for the Republican candidates in numbers comparable to their November 3 turnout, they would have kept the Senate out of the hands of radical leftists. Gosh, I hope all those fed-up conservative Georgia voters are happy now.

Let’s do some basic math. Right now, the two major parties, in terms of numbers, are pretty evenly split. If the 2/3 of Republicans who, as you say, are thoroughly fed up and refuse to vote for another Republican DO vote for a third party candidate instead, that will give the third party candidate a whopping 2/3 of what the anti-Democrat vote would have been otherwise. The Republican gets the other 1/3. These two parties will split about half the total vote.

But the Democrats get almost all of the other half, which means they WIN, as all they need is a plurality. Obviously, 1/3 of the Republican vote isn’t going to get us squat. But even 2/3 of that vote isn’t going to get us squat, either. One thing about Democrats: they do stick together. And if they stick together and we fragment, with no more than 2/3 of our vote going to any one candidate, guess which party wins?

That’s right, the Democrats, every time. Go to the head of the class.

When Democrat Party candidate Bill Clinton won in 1992, he got a whopping 43 percent of the popular vote. The other two major candidates, Republican incumbent George H. W. Bush and Independent Party candidate and Texas billionaire H. Ross Perot, essentially split the rest; that “giant sucking sound” you heard was Perot sucking up 19 percent of the vote (the most a third party candidate has ever received, but it translated into ZERO electoral votes). So victory went to Clinton, the Democrat. Some analysts said that Clinton would’ve beaten Bush anyway, but we don’t know about that. A huge number of conservative Republicans rejected a second Bush term and voted for Perot, giving us the Democrats.

Let’s go farther back in history, to when former President Teddy Roosevelt tried a comeback with a third party, the Bull Moose Party. In 1912, a group of Republicans dissatisfied with President William Howard Taft formed the Bull Moose Party specifically for TR to run again. (He supposedly had said he was “fit as a bull moose” to run again.) The Bull Moose Party was “progressive” for the time and favored such new-fangled ideas as women’s suffrage, direct election of U.S. senators, and various social reforms. Roosevelt ran on what he called the “Square Deal,” based on fair business competition and more welfare programs for the needy.

Anyway, his candidacy divided the Republican Party, and Democrat Woodrow Wilson easily won. Would you like to hear about Woodrow Wilson and his administration? That’s a topic for another day, but for now let’s just say it would have been much better if TR hadn’t divided the Republican Party and let Wilson and his pals glide into the Oval Office.

Things the left would love to see from us:

1) An uprising. In fact, the Capitol breach played into their hands so well that if it hadn’t happened, they would have had to create it; make of that statement what you will. The Capitol incident gave the left all the excuse they needed to label every one of us a “domestic terrorist” and start taking our rights away. As frustrated as you might be, DO NOT give them any more reason to do that. Believe me, they are just waiting for this.

2) A third party. The left would LOVE this. Aside from the reasons mentioned above, a third party is not going to have the “ground game” of the well-oiled machine that is the Democrat Party. All this will do is split the Republican Party vote and ensure Democrat victories time after time. I know many of you don’t want to hear this, but it’s the hard truth.

3) Giving up. Some conservatives are now saying the fight is over and we have lost. Why bother voting if the elections are rigged? Why bother tweeting if you’ll just be banned? Just stay home and wait for the end. But this would be a gift to the left. When you give up, they push even harder.

We have to fix our party, from the inside. We do have a few outstanding incumbents, but for the RINOS, we have to find solid, articulate conservative candidates for primary challenges. That’s what the “progressives” in the Democrat Party did, through organizations such as Justice Democrats, the group that recruited AOC. Democrats organize like mad, and if they aren’t satisfied with their incumbents, they challenge them. This is what we’re going to have to do with our own who fail to represent our views and values. Perhaps Trump could help with this. We must go into every race with the strongest ticket we can find, work like our freedom depends on it (because it does) and be assertive poll watchers!

But, again, the worst thing conservatives can do is split off and form a third party. Don’t even think about it!

    I disagree with you Governor, the Republicans are spineless and just point fingers. Example before the last election, we received information, for months, about all underhanded things Obama, FBI, NIA and other agency's did against President Trump. All the investigations yielded nothing. No one went to jail or was even taken to court explain that. Also the person in white House now, bragged about witholding money from Ukraine, nothing was done, them we have Clinton - server in closet, classified emails on private server, all other laws she broke, free pass by Comey, and once again nothing. The Republicans are spineless and don't deserve my vote. No way I vote Democrat, so what choice do I have?

    I believe the single biggest action we could all take is to push for a convention of states in order to get an amendment vote on TERM LIMITS. The congress will NEVER bring a term limits bill to a vote and pass it. The lifetime, “professional” politician is the greatest threat to our Democratic republic and Absolutely must be addressed. It you take a look at the amount of time these elected officials have been in office and their net worth from when they began to where it is now my question is, “How is that possible on your government salary?” I work for the government and I make a good salary, but I am not going to be a millionaire when I retire or stop working for the government??!! And, Mike, you were our pastor and Beech St and I heard you are moving back to AR to help Sarah in her run for Governor. How about you primary Bozeman? Please!

    Pres Trump exposed the total corruption in not only both parties, but our institutions as well (FBI - and it goes deeper than ‘upper’ mgmt, lots of FBI agents were aware of the crimes being committed by the agency and not a peep, CIA, DIA, NSC etc) and the news media where journalism, a protector of democracy is dead as well. I am a Veteran and have never missed voting in an election, but Nov 20 was my last vote. With the existing voter fraud, which will not be fixed, millions of new ‘legal’ voters via amnesty that will be eligible to vote moving forward, and the lack of ANY Rep, including many fine true conservatives, who can draw across party lines like Pres Trump did (because he was beholden to no one but the American people) the Republicans will never hold the White House again during my lifetime and I believe ever. Now more people get ‘free’ stuff than provide it thru paying taxes, instead of everyone working for and desiring a better job, wage, future etc, the view is being successful is immoral and the way to have a better life is to take it from someone who is. So I am part of the FED UP class, and do not plan to vote again, I say bring on the pain and bring it on as fast and hard as the Dems can...there is a reason America cannot be found as a great power in the end times, we won’t be...and looking at us even today, you can see why...just look at Venezuela and other fine socialist countries and you can sadly see our future...unfortunately.

    With respect Mr Huckabee, I simply cannot understand your reasoning in the reply to Stephen R. I WAS. A huge supporter of Republicans...especially since Trump. I feel as if I’ve been raped (I do know what that’s like) by my government. My party..Republicans.. have stabbed me in the back when they stabbed President Trump. I will NEVER FORGIVE OR FORGET what they have done.... it has deeply scarred my trust . Why would I “VOTE” when it’s only a simple act to follow through in order to appease we pions to allow us to pretend our voice counts. THEN TO TOP THAT OFF.... THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TURN TRAITOR AND AGREE THE ACT OF STEALING OUR VOICE IS APPROVED BY REPUBLICANS ALSO. ?????????????????? I was devastated... ! Knowing what I know now, seeing it transpire, I will NEVER be a part of a traitor, treasonous, weak, spineless, hypocrisy of acts . Until I WITNESS these thugs being jailed and or exterminated in same way we little people are, until I witness some corrections and TRUE means of allowing my voice.... I’ll not bother participating in the scam portraying an election... a call for our peoples voices .... my time is just as valuable as theirs...I’ll not beg them to rape me!! I KNOW what I know and know what I see..... and I see absolutely no need to vote in another election when the real results will be whoever they want PLACED in the Positions. I KNOW we were scammed.... America was scammed... and now, just a few weeks later.... the talk is allllll about the “next election “ ????. Excuse me??? Let’s all just forget how it’s just an act for the minions to methodically go do as if the results mattered !!! Not that it matters but I do know I’m not the only one that feels that way. I have gotten most of my nieces involved in this election and they were excited to vote for first time in their lives.... I had convinced them that their word/voice counts... now, they don’t want to discuss politics with me... they saw what their party did ... they saw the party turn on a dime from their previous words and they saw how the slime bag spineless thugs turned on their President and they saw how the justice system REALLY is. We are a proud strong people and we KNOW REALITY. Reality is there is two levels of justice system...and laws are made up as they go along , judges are a joke (it’s who ya know and who’s been blowed), and Elections are just as big of a joke . Prove me wrong please. ???

    Thank God you never made it to the White House with your perception of the American People ! Your opinion of the Citizens of Georgia not showing up to vote shows your blindness to the Truth ! They DID SHOW UP ! In Fact They Showed Up In Such Large Numbers That The Criminals had to quit counting the votes around 11 pm so they could pull duplicate ballots out from under tables after the Republican pole workers left because they were told to go home and counting would resume in the morning.
    Once again sir you have soiled your integrity with another load of crap !
    Hillary Clinton called us deplorables and irredeemable....
    You just called us Stupid and insinuated that we didn't show up to vote Republican when the down ballot Republicans won all of their seats with the exception of the Two that were contested. I'll bet you that an honest examination of those ballots were just as fraudulent as the presidential ballots !
    Sidney Powell knows it, Lin Wood Knows It, Rudy Giuliani Knows It, Mike Lindell Knows It. The CIA Knows It. The Guy in Italy who wrote the code to rig the Machines Knows It and has given a Sworn Confession In Front of The Italian Court Which is in the hands of the trump team !
    Us hicks out here in rural America know how to use the internet and we have the ability and intellect to research the Crap you crap shovelers are throwing at us ! And We Ain't Dumb enough to believe it without checking other sources !
    I challenge you to do an honest poll of your listeners and see if they believe what I just said unedited vs what you said about the Georgia Voter's. Perhaps you should go to Georgia and talk with locals there and ask them what they think of what you are accusing them of and this time have your ears open and listen to them instead of telling them what you think of them !

    Mike you are missing what has happened right in front of you. Americans had a president who cares about them and the country. The left stole the election and laughed in our faces. There’s no republican party left to vote for when our votes don’t count anymore. I doubt a third party could win even if every trump voter votes for them. The left will just cheat again. You’re worried about splitting votes when I guarantee you in 2 years less than half of registered Republicans even bother to vote. That’s what will get the conservatives booted out of office. I don’t like it anymore than you do but with the deck stacked against us no amount of grass roots anything will help.

    Why is it if do much fraud happened, they say no proof. Why did we leave the polls with no body watching them. Something stinks here.

    Governor Huckabee, is there a way to send you an e-mail that no one else sees? Thank you. Esther Sims

    Shouldn’t this be the time that Republicans (conservatives) stick together? A house divided itself will fall. We cannot allow the lies against conservatives to continue.

    It’s occurred to me that the dems will have a hard time keeping illegals who cross the newly opened southern border, and maybe their old illegals, too. New proposed speech sensitivity laws will make it illegal to use gender designations. Spanish nouns all have gender designations and those who speak Spanish will be unable to talk. They’ll all go back where they came from and not be able to vote for the dems, for which reason they were brought here in the first place.

    I’m with Stephen, I no longer believe in the Republican Party. Republican politicians are only out for their own pocketbook and could care less about the working class

    I had the same thoughts as Steve. I accept your battle plan. I am a Committeeman for Luzerne County, pa District 1 GOP. We are having the same discussions. Our Chairman aligns with you. I'll stick with the both of you because your both smart guys. He's a retired surgeon.

    The vacuum is that there is no clear vision from Republicans about how to move forward united in purpose. We need assurances we can make elections secure again...that no tallying machines can be connected to the internet or programmed to do anything but count.

    Thank you Governor Huckabee for sharing such wise advice and information, that makes this situation clear.

    The Democrats' have been very busy. They brought over the Covid-19 virus and spread it around. Then they said it was all Trump's fault that it was spreading when they said it was no problem. They make up things for impeachment. This when many Democrats have stirred up more trouble. The Democrats did have dead people voting. Say no need for ID to vote it is too hard for many to have ID but need ID to go into a federal building, travel and even to get a Covid-19 shot! So I guess ID is important. But important enough for voting. The Democrats know the voting was corrupt or they would have allowed problem states to be checked. They would have welcomed these results. But when a current person acting like he is suppose to be a president and has been signing so many orders with different signatures, one wonders who is really signing the orders???
