Mike Huckabee: Put Conservatism Into Practice

Mike Huckagee

In an editorial published in the Washington Times, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has called upon conservatives to cease their “hand wringing” and their “night sweats about the demise of the conservative movement.”

As the former Arkansas governor sees it, the recent Republican debacle isn’t the result of a failure of conservative principles, but rather of a failure to genuinely abide by them.

“Conservatives aren’t challenged because of the basic principles that define us,” Huckabee writes, “but by the failure of the principles being translated into policy and practice.”

Both during last years campaign, and now, with Democrats controlling both the White House and the Congress, all too many Republicans have abandoned traditional conservative principles of limited government and individual responsibility. Rather than providing an alternative to Democratic policies, they’re simply falling in line behind liberals in espousing big-government solutions to all our nation’s problems.

But the me-too strategy has been a failure, as the results of the November 2008 elections make clear.

“We don’t need so much to redefine conservatism,” Huckabee concludes. “Just practice the real thing.”

We at ConservaTechnology can only say “Amen!” to Rev. Huckabee’s observations. We’re committed to conservative principles, and believe that advancing them through cutting-edge technology is the most effective way to overcome the big-government, borrow-and-spend mentality that got our country into this mess in the first place.
