The Club for Growth's Anti-Huckabee Ad

For the life of me, I don’t understand why so many “conservatives” support Mike Huckabee*. He raises taxes, increases spending, his anti-capitalist/populist rhetoric is indistinguishable from that of John Edwards (minus the “Two Americas” b.s.), he wants a national smoking ban in all workplaces, and he once thought that AIDS patients should be quarantined! Democrats traditionally want into our boardrooms while Republicans traditionally want into our bedrooms; Mike Huckabee wants to be in both! Basically, he is the William Jennings Bryan of our time.

*Well he is likable and has a great sense of humor – I’ll give him that. He also supports the Fair Tax. I’m afraid, however; that Huckabee might do more harm to the Fair Tax movement than good because of some of the reasons I mentioned above

Huckleberry is a communitarian.

Not many people know what a communitarian is, but the short and simple is that they support community over the individual. You can find out a lot about them on Google.

They are usually socially conservative and economically liberal, the exact opposite of a libertarian who is usually socially liberal and economically conservative.

You might also be surprise to find that this ideology has a big support base. Supporters have already begun voting in large numbers to put like-minded politicians into power.

For example, what do you think all of those "Blue Dog Democrats" who got elected in Nov 2006 are?
