Countdown To The Caucus: Mike Huckabee

Continuing our series leading up to the Monday Caucus in Iowa we present to you a sit down with the man who is currently the record holder for the biggest turnout and record haul of votes ever cast in the Iowa Caucuses.

In 2008 Governor Mike Huckabee literally came from nowhere to bounce John McCain and Mitt Romney. He went on to win 8 states outright and only barely lost the election saying primary in South Carolina.

But we don’t discuss polls, votes, or past elections.

We focus exclusively on what a President Huckabee administration would look like, how it would function, and how we would serve as President.

ALERT: Vets and Donald don’t much like each other…

Earlier today I saw a parade of stories come floating through my feeds telling me of different Veterans groups that didn’t much appreciate being played as a useful idiot in the Donald Trump Reality Show. I grasp their concerns and understand how they will be needing to work with any incoming administration to improve the plight of those who have served us so faithfully in uniform.

Both of my grandfathers served in the NAVY in the big war. I had several uncles in the Air Force. A few distant cousins in the Marines, and one I believe who even served Army.

My mother’s father had long lasting injuries sustained from his service and was afforded care and help from the government as a Disabled Veteran.

Through all the years and administrations I remember him talking about his experiences with Veterans’ Affairs or the VA as something he was grateful for.

With the recent revelations of how the Obama administration allowed the conditions for our heroes to deteriorate much like he is disintegrating our service vehicles–ships and planes especially–it has turned my stomach that veterans are going through such pain.

But when Mr. Trump decided to use the veterans to get back at a network that wouldn’t bend and capitulate to his tantrums…

Let’s just say we can all understand why Iowans are abandoning him like flies, and why veterans felt used.

These were my thoughts before I ever even glanced at this piece. I don’t much read the particular outlet often, but its arguable to try make the case with straight face that he has always been “pro-vet.” At least from the veterans who were around him the most.

Countdown To The Caucus: Rick Santorum

Senator Rick Santorum may be the 2016 candidate that has the clearest policy vision for his goals as President.

It is clear that as we discussed the areas that he has challenged the voters to consider, he definitely hits home on the greatest challenges of our time: terrorism, and jobs.

We are grateful that he took the time to participate in the Countdown to the Caucus week:

Countdown To The Caucus: Ben Carson

This week we will speak to the candidates of 2016 and give you their positions on the issues that they feel like you care about.

Today we speak with neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson. We discuss economic outlook, national defense, national health care, the issue of life and conscience, and many additional issues. The purpose of all of it is to give you the voters the advantage of hearing directly from those asking for your vote.

Thus far we have commitments from Carson, Santorum, Huckabee, and Cruz campaigns to appear. The Trump people have also signaled that they will be with us.

It’s our desire to simply give you the information that you can use to make your best decision. And I happen to believe that hearing from them directly is the very core of the best way to do it.
