All of the 2016 Republican presidential candidates are either outright Creationists of cynically opposed to the idea of biological evolution through natural selection, even if they grudgingly accept that it is a fact.
How could we dare to question any of these actions? How could we dare to take away the “religious liberty” of any of these government officials? Who would we be to stand in the way of their religious practice, if we followed the definition of “religious liberty” proposed by Mike Huckabee?
Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee on people who want to impose Islamic religious law in the United States: “We live in a country where people are free to be Muslim. They’re not free, however, to impose a Muslim law as if it were civil law.”
Given Mike Huckabee’s comfort with actually giving weapons to Iran that the country’s leaders could use against Israel, what rational justification does Huckabee have for saying that denying weapons to Iran is dangerous for Israel? Is Mike Huckabee’s policy that the way to keep Israelis safe from Iran is to help Iran get more and more weapons?
Mike Huckabee isn’t just on the wrong side of history. He lacks the basic intelligence to distinguish history from his small-minded fantasies of right wing Christian theocracy.

Mike Huckabee’s Anything and Everything Energy Policy is a symptom of sloppy thinking and indifference to suffering. Huckabee ought to be ashamed of himself for even suggesting it.
When Mike Huckabee says that he will keep all options on the table, that means he will keep torture on the table, keep imprisonment without criminal charge on the table, keep the bombing of areas with civilians on the table, keep the use of nuclear weapons on the table.
Not one of the Republican presidential candidates at the event had the decency to stand up and say something like, “Hey, we’re getting a little bit out of hand here.” Instead, they clapped their hands as Wayne LaPierre wove his prophecies of permanent darkness, and hoped that they could pick up some political capital from the crowd’s fervor.
It’s a story that we hear over and over again. A tiny child finds a parent’s gun and disaster results. This time, a 3 year-old boy shot both his father and his pregnant mother in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Other recent incidents in the United States
The big problem isn’t what women say. The big problem is that Mike Huckabee thinks that he has the legitimate authority to tell women what they can and cannot say.
