    My husband and I opted not to have internet in the home. Instead we go to the library from time to time to check emails. So I don't have the time to catch things on your website, but the articles topics are great. We can't wait for your program on TBN in Kansas City, Mo to come on Saturday night. We are telling others about your program, I would love to have something I could send to others about an article I thought they would be interested in by email but haven't figured out how to do that. God Bless you and your family, all the fine workers behind the scenes and guests that appear on the show. In Jesus love, Nancy

    What a novel idea!! He's dead right about this! Now add in a requirement that the candidate must have served America at least 2 years NOT in some elected or appointed position, but something like Vista at least, preferably the military, before he is eligible to hold public office. WAY too many "self-servers" in our public offices.

    I can’t imagine them working so my comment is “Imagine if they had to work for a living without all those benefits.” Because you have to start before you can quit.

    I totally agree with you. All these
    Candidates should have given up their current positions in the government.

    My wife Mildred and I look forward to your program every week. It is wholesome and clean and honest and you are one of the most outstanding men in America We all recognize that our President has had to fight off Democrats and Press for two years. Thanks for supporting him as he is a really special person God has directed.

    I would also like to see a law that says no law shall be passed that doesn't equally apply to congress

    Exactly, I've been saying this for years!!!

    Once again Governor, You hit the nail on the head! I don't think anyone would introduce a bill as you say, but it's a great thought.
    Thanks for always being so unafraid to speak out. It's very refreshing.

    WOW!
    I have asked MANY times, why/how can one run for ANOTHER political office, when they still are being paid for the job they are NOT doing? I totally agree with your assessment! There should be an "Ethical" clause in the position they are voted into; that states, anytime you wirh to run for ANOTHER government position, you MUST resign your current position! NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!!!!!

    I agree that those seeking other political offices should not be paid by us during their campagn for a new office weather they win or lose.

    How do we do it?

    Amazing when you can vote to get what you want in your job and we the tax payer keep paying WHY? See many dropping out of Congress wonder why? I guess they see what the rest of us out here now see a Congress that no longer works for us but for their lobbyist and money paid to keep them in office? Ck this out. Sad and how we had 2 yr wasted on Russia and now possible lets try Impeachment and what money was paid and from where for 2 women. WHY? We the working people do not care we want the better JOBS back and AFFORDABLE health care and stop the illegals no more? Wake up Congress all of you and come together or fall apart.

    I agree.

    Amen! They shouldn't be allowed to put their jobs on hold and then go back. I'm over 60, I can't find full-time employment. I had to retire early to support myself. This subject, isn't fair- but what is. Thanks again, Mike!

    I agree with you 100%. As a local Judge, if I want to run for any office other than the one I hold, I, by State Law, (NY) must resign from that office when I deciede to run for any other office, if it is an ellected position. Also, if I want to draw my retirement, I have to do so by resigning from that office and then hope the Board will re-appoint me to that position once it is open to fill out the blalance of my term, Or if they do not, tough luck, I just threw out a nice job. I have questioned the way the politicians can do what they are doing and still get paid. I heard that the Mayor of NYC has been in his office just 7 hours in the month of August, nice gig if you can get it. Just musing, Dennis

    I fully agree with you that candidates need to not get taxpayer dollars while they are campaigning.
    Isn't that the same as forcing us to fund their campaigns?

    I AGREE WITH HUCKABEE, WHY SHOULD THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT,STILL BE PAID FOR THEIR JOB IN THE CONGRESS & OR SENATE. THEY SHOULD RESIGN.

  • Marchia Kay Forber

    My thoughts exactly! I remember when most
    candidates (Pres.) did give up their job.
    (I'm old.)

    Great idea, now let's take action and get it down with a petition

    Governor Huckabee thank you for your refreshing Commentary!
    Former presidential candidate Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington state was a prime example of wasted taxpayer funds. He entered the presidential race, traveled to democratic events, campaigned at the Iowa State Fair and participated in the National Democratic TV Debates. He entered the race
    March 1,2019 and suspended his campaign on August 21,2019. The next day he announced his candidacy for a third term as governor. During his 6 months campaigning he raised $3 million the first quarter and $2.3 million the second quarter. Where does that money go now? It would seem unethical for Gov. Inslee to use that money donated for his presidential run and have it used for his new campaign for governor. Is that legal ? Are there other candidates doing the same thing? If other presidential candidates are raising money while holding public office and if they drop out what happens to their donor’s money when they drop out? Does the DNC get the money? Now that would be quite an organized slush fund DNC. Who is following the money for these presidential drop outs.
    I agree that the whole election campaigning needs an ethical overhaul.

    Any candidate for either US or state offices should resign prior to beginning to campaign for a NEW office. On another note, Term limits would benefit all US taxpayers.

    That is a great Idea! I doubt any of the folks running would ever go for it however. Thank you for your good example in so many places. Love you show!

  • Lauri Norris

    That sounds like a great plan, because the Democrats seem to all be working on the same thing, which is getting Trump out of the White House. They shouldn’t be allowed to keep their jobs that they are not working for! Good video Mike.

    Passage of this kind of bill would add quality candidates to our political options at the polls.
