Former Arkansas Governor, 2008 Republican Presidential Primary candidate, former Fox News television host, and New York Times Bestselling author, Mike Huckabee will host book signings in Georgia and Alabama on Monday, Feb. 2 and Tuesday, Feb 3. The stops are part of his 14-state bus tour to promote the release of his new book, “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy.”
Huckabee in his book writes about: the erosion of public education, government intrusion on personal freedoms, and religion and its changing place in American life and addresses today’s divided nation.
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.” “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.”
