Mike Huckabee is back in the news again with the launch of HuckPac. Not surprisingly, he launched on April 15th — tax day — as one of Huckabee’s favorite issues is the fair tax to replace the current system. The PAC’s mission is detailed on the site:
Huck PAC will support Republican candidates who are passionate advocates for tax reform, a strong national defense, real border security, life, the family, less government and individual liberty.
Huck PAC will identify candidates who hold firm to these principles, promote their campaigns and financially support their efforts.
That’s a broad statement — we’ll see if they stick to it or not, but it’s about time groups push Republicans back to their conservative roots, as Republicans have strayed from their roots — Conservatism (or liberalism if you prefer) boils down to three areas:
- Social issues.
- Economic issues.
Too many Republicans don’t qualify as conservatives. Of course, we’ve detailed our conservative positions before (you can even get a PDF), but it’s about time (former) presidential candidates take up the cause.
We welcome Huckabee’s new PAC, as well as Romney’s new attention to championing conservative causes. Now if only the RNC would take notice that people are tired of Republicans not acting like the conservatives they claim to be.
