Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is scheduled to make several stops in Alabama in early February, to promote his new book, “Gods, Guns, Grits and Gravy.” Most understand though that Gov. Huckabee, who recently quit his lucrative Fox News TV show, is gearing up for what likely will be a run for the GOP nomination for the White House.
Conservatives for Good Government will host an exclusive Town Hall with Governor and New York Times Best Selling author, Mike Huckabee on Tuesday, February 3, 2015, at The Ledges in Huntsville. The VIP Reception and Photo Op begins at 6:30 PM, and the Town Hall starts at 7 PM. According to the group’s statement, in the Town Hall Governor Huckabee will share his thoughts about how we can rediscover the people, the values, and the optimistic patriotism that makes America great and will answer questions about his latest book, “God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy.” Huckabee will discuss how we can reintroduce fundamental American values for future generations and will share his thoughts on how we can rediscover the people, the values, and the optimistic patriotism that makes America great.
Gov. Huckabee said in a written statement, “I love freedom. I love my country and the Constitution. I love my family and would sacrifice my life to protect them.”
Gov. Huckabee wrote, “I don’t think we need more money in government; I do think we need more morality and decency in our culture. And if we really want government to ‘get off my lawn,’ then part of the solution is better citizens obeying the laws we already have so we don’t have to pass new laws to further explain and expand the old ones.”
The former Governor and ordained Baptist minister wrote, “We still think the United States is the greatest country in the history of the world, but we know it won’t be if we don’t return to the principles we were built on. And it starts with a God who gave birth to this nation and miraculously preserved us through battles we should have lost. The culture I grew up in created a sense of community, but also a sense of accountability. I miss the front porch culture. Communities where people looked after each other, and where we never expected the government to do it, had a real strength about them.
