Statement by Governor Mike Huckabee on the Democratic Candidates Debate
As Americans went to theaters to see the newest installment of "Star Wars", many turned on their TVs tonight and saw the newest installment of the Democrat Party's "Socialist Wars". The Democrat debate was nothing but a battle to see who could get the farthest left first.
From free college and government gun control, to healthcare handouts, higher taxes and free rides for everyone, it is like they came up with these ideas in a galaxy far, far away. It does not take the mind of a Jedi to figure out the dollars and cents on these proposals don't add up for a country almost 20 trillion dollars in debt.
Our country needs a fresh start - not another sequel to the last eight years of Barack Obama. It is time we put Americans first - American workers, American jobs, and American families - not the same failed liberal ideology that got us here in the first place.
