The Governor Shares Two Reader Comments

April 29, 2019

Weekends are often the time to catch up on reader comments. I thought it might be good to feature this letter (with slight editing) because it articulates very well the way many Americans feel today. The people Wanda talks about –- those in the middle –- are the ones who, in the end, decide elections, yet, ironically, they feel powerless, in that the people they put in office rarely do the job they were sent to Washington to do.

 

I would say to Wanda that the President is certainly trying to do the things he promised, but Congress, the mainstream media, and certain courts are trying to thwart him at every turn. It’s vital that he have a second term, and one with solid support in Congress. Some of the court decisions that have tied his hands will, before long, get to the Supreme Court, where he’s likely to prevail. The swamp really is gradually getting drained, and we’re finding out more almost daily about what’s gone on and what reforms need to be made. The Inspector General report on the FBI will be out soon, and AG Bill Barr seems intent on following the law at the Justice Department, so progress is being made. But the people “in the middle” have got to remain engaged and politically active in a grassroots way. If you identify with what Wanda is saying here, perhaps you should even run for office! Here’s what she had to say...

From Wanda S:

I’m so tired of all the plots and sub-plots and accusations and denials that I could literally scream. Middle America is fed up.

 

This Congress is worse than the one before it (which was worse than the ones before that, etc). They have no clue how to do what their actual job is. Honestly, I could write a border policy that would be fair, feasible, compassionate yet sensible. It wouldn’t be politically acceptable to them, but it would be a start. I could give decent ideas about healthcare reform, education, food, drugs, inner city issues, farm issues, and possibly even foreign policy. I’m not a genius by any measure, so the point I’m making is that Congress needs to stop running for election and trying to invalidate anything good done by their political enemies and start DOING THEIR JOB!

 

I’m 64...a registered Independent since I was 18, and I detest partisan politics. I admired you as a governor and supported your run for President. (I’m from Louisiana). My point is this: there are about 28 million registered Independents and many, many middle-of-the-road Republicans. Heaven only knows how many, but I’m sure there are also many moderate Democrats. We are frightened for our children and grandchildren. We are at this point becoming very angry. We are terrified for our children and grandchildren.

 

Someone needs to tell these idiots that our nation is set to collapse. Between the lunacy of the left and nuts on the far-right, plus the cold-hearted, cash-grabbing corporations who run our world, we can’t see a way forward without civil war breaking out...We are being split into factions in so many different areas that I can actually understand for the first time ever how these Second and Third-World countries can spend decades in civil wars and rebellions. But, at this point there are still millions and millions of us that simply love our God, our neighbor, our families, and simply want leadership in state and federal government to bring order to this country…

We won’t have a country in 12 years (eye-roll), but it won’t be because of climate change. It will be because the people who are being elected to represent us simply don’t know what to do and most of them won’t admit it. THIS is the truth that needs to be told. It’s the only one that can bring the people back together. What do we do ?

 

From the Gov:

I would say that another reason we might not have a country in 12 years is because some people being elected know EXACTLY what they want to do but have as their goal destroying America as we have known it. Nutzoid leftists are taking over the Democrat Party and currently control numerous institutions, and they will stop at nothing to get rid of all we know and love about our country.

 

You’re right: they want to split us into factions, and that’s why we must fight back with everything we’ve got against identity politics, which will destroy our great nation if allowed to become entrenched. To me, the most powerful part of your letter was “...I can actually understand for the first time ever how those Second- and Third-World countries can spend decades in civil wars and rebellions.” The structure our founders put in place –- the one we took for granted growing up –- is being undermined on many fronts and can be lost in a heartbeat if we don’t stand up for it. Thanks, Wanda, for writing from your heart.

Here’s another reader comment I thought I’d pass along, with thanks, just because it made me laugh…

 

From Ken W:

Dear Governor,


My wife and I watch you every Saturday night. Since we are very conservative, we do not have cable. We live on our Social Security and even bank a hundred or so each month. Here is the funny part: We use a fifty-cent rabbit ear antenna. We live in the country outside of Atlanta [and] get 30 stations, most of them coming in good except for TBN stations. The only way I can get them to come in good is to stand next to our bed for the whole hour. 


You’re one of the few people that I would stand up that long for. 
Keep up the great work. 


We love you.

    I would debate Wanda's "cash-grabbing corporations who run our world" complaint. It is misdirected. Corporate lobbyists do have too much say in government but hardly run the world. Fortune 1000 countries can barely lay off a nonperforming individual due to fear of litigation.

    I have hear people complaining that the DemonRATs don't know the Constitution. I have to disagree with that. To destroy something you have to have a good knowledge about it to find ways to counter what it stands for.

    I agree with Wanda. I, as well as most conservatives, are tired of the lack of accountability in Washington.
    And to address your comment "run for office": I have friends who have done just that. Before long they are disheartened at the inability to get anything done. We need a giant, drain sucking purge in Washington.

    Wanda, a very insightful letter. You really nailed it. The Democrats have transitioned from a passionate, liberal, freedom-loving group to a hate-filled, bullying party of seditionists, who openly want to "fundamentally transform America." There is just no reasoning with them. Their brains have been reprogrammed by Alinsky doctrine. But President Trump is a bright light in all this overwhelming darkness. I believe he is God's message that He's not done with America yet.

    Dear Governor Huckabee,

    Thank you for all you do. I supported you for POTUS and wish you had won. We need a person like you to wade through the swamp. I am glad POTUS Trump is doing so well, although, I wish he would tone down some of the negative commentary. I understand why he fights back but it can get a bit to much at times. I am a true believer in "Term Limits". I see no other way to stop the corruption in Washington. I like many fellow Americans am sick of the partisan politics and simply want Congress to do the job they were elected to do. Imagine if they could do that how much better the lives of all Americans would be. My last comment is we need to stop political campaigning 19 months ahead of general elections. The 20 or so Dem's currently running all but one are elected officials. So they spend half of their elected term looking for another job while still being paid for the job they were elected for??? They miss most of the voting necessary to pass laws. How can that be ok? I only wish I had a job that paid me to look for another job for a year and a half.

    A simple fix for the invasion at the border. They could NOT be eligible for asylum unless they come through legal check points. If caught crossing any other place deport them.

    Hi Governor.
    Before I start please tell Sarah she does such an outstanding job. I love her. Here are my thoughts on all of this for whatever it is worth. Having learned Truth and so much history later in my life, I've come to see a few things many are missing and ought to be learning and I do mean soon not later.
    1. One is and as always should be to study in depth GOD's Letter to each one us ( a great study Bible is the KJV Companion Bible with Appendix by Bullinger) In Which HE shares Truth as only a loving FATHER could, and wants us to learn it rightly.
    2. We must learn history, American, world, communism and mohammadmen followers. We need to understand our enemies and well so as to not be deceived not taken over by deceptions and lies. To not learn would make us derelict in our duties as Americans, and will [as we are seeing today] bring us into a very dangerous and grievous place. Our youth especially and the un-rightly learned are growing and well, ignorance is not bliss.
    3. I will share 3 links here for you and your readers to check out. These three would be great aids to get people learning rightly right away.
    4. We Americans like to be liked, but what our enemies have and use very well is that they are ‘Organized’ and use that system together as a tag team. We are seeing it now in the democrat party. So large ‘Numbers’ are not needed nor required, but a strategic organized plan is. People need to learn these Truths, and we then also ourselves, need to get “Organized”. We should be teaching our youth and children these things, and those deceived by the left as well, because they’re among the most starved for all, for Truths.

    That is all I wanted to share.
    Thank you.
