What a great video! I saw him a few weeks ago in Virginia and it was great to see his whole speech recorded. Looks like there's great excitement in Texas! I'm excited about what may happen in the days and weeks to come. Mike's message is powerful. Get it to the people and he will WIN. Thanks for sharing this.

The United States of America needs Mike Huckabee to be their next president. He will bring the "change" that this country needs!!!!! Get out there and vote Texas!! The media has not even given Mike a chance to speak. He is a man of values, morals and integrity. He believes in securing our borders and making America a safer place to be. God bless you Mike!!!!

I sincerely believe that Mike Huckabee is the last best hope we have as a country. The Huckabee Express rolls on, and I'm on board until it reaches the end of the line--the White House. This man is a man of character, intelligence, patriotism, and wisdom, and he offers us the chance to be a great country again. Let's take him up on the offer. GO MIKE GO!!

My husband and I attended this rally---it affirmed our vote for Gov Huckabee. It's sad that the majority of Republicans in this Country are too apathetic to take an active part in this election and to understand the change in America over the last 40-50 years...it could be the downfall of the party - and unfortunately, the Country. GO MIKE!! Phyllis in Plano TX

Mike Huckabee is the best candidate that we have running for president from any party, including the ones who have dropped out. This man has what it takes!
He has experience, integrity, is a natural leader and has the qualities we need in a President! He needs our support!

Thanks to Donovan Quinn for posting Mike at Plano. The RNC conceding races before vote counts in a close race, media projected winners at 1% vote counts, and media ignoring Mike, all had me down in the dumps. Mike's enthusiasm, clarity on principle, and asking us to vote our conscience really needs to be heard. It will take a miracle for him to be our President, but God would have spared Sodom for 10 righteous.
Jehovah never loses. So, if Mike does, perhaps we're just signing up for the righteous reward. And our nation will have signed up for what they deserve. Be we must not forget, the prophets went into exile with all the rest. That would be an even greater test of faith, so I better get with it!

I've not had the opportunity to listen to a Huckabee speech. After listening to him here, (thank you for having this speech) I now understand why the main stream media does not give him equal time. He is good! Now I know for sure whom I will be voting for this November. I truly regret my vote for Romney :( Go Mike Go!! Let's help him out by donating to his campaign!!

That was a fantastis speech. Mike Huckabee is really the only person in this race that really has the good of the USA at heart. I commend Mike for the excellent race he is running, and my vote in this election will be for Mike Huckabee. Ren Rutledge - Norwich, Connecticut

This is wonderful! People have been talking about women fainting and crying at Obama's speaches...well, had I been present to hear Huckabee's speach in Texas, I would have been crying and possibly fainting too. I really believe the principals he stands for is what our country needs.

Dear Governor Huckabee,

I am a 29 year old personal trainer and full time college student from Urbana Illinois, and my wife is a full time waitress. So far we have contributed at four different times to your campaign. As an American and Marine Corps vet, I am inspired by your message. In fact, I share your values so much that I feel like you are the national spokesman of my heart. I know you are the ordinary persons' choice because you care about the ordinary man, and in my opinion you offer the best hope for the future of this country. Unfortunately, it doesn't look great for you right now with delegate counts, but I'm here to tell you, your uncommon perseverance shines through greater than the delegate imbalance. KEEP GOING MIKE!! This country needs you.

Sincerely,
Todd

The media torrent is relentless. So while Obama and Clinton battle on and continue to spread their message and attract new voters we should concede the Republican nomination and quietly raise funds for a candidate about half of us don't believe in? Wake up fellow Republicans. Having a contest is good for this party. News Flash - If McCain raises a bunch of money and goes negative on TV against Barack Obama he won't lose - he will get stomped. Conventional wisdom / stuffy old men Republican politics might work if it's Hillary but not against Obama. 2nd News Flash - winning primaries in Blue States might get you the nomination but you can't win the general election with votes in New England or by independents. The independents will probably follow Obama. Quit telling Republicans to shut up and fall in line and prove to us why we should. Principles before Party. Don't concede and don't listen to Rush, Hannity etc. When's the last time they did something for you?

Victoria from NJ said...

Come on Texas! Vote for Mike! We do need to bring our country back. Governor Huckabee can bring us back to a place where we once again have a moral center. Please help lead our country back. Show the rest of the nation that Texas has the conservative voice that will lead us on.

Mike is the only candidate that truly represents the commitment to real leadership. I am extremely proud of Governor Huckabee for standing up for truth and working toward the things that really affect us. It is my prayer that God steps in and intervenes in this race so as the man that knows God will lead our nation by Gods guidance. There is something wrong when the ones who once opposed McCain are now the very same ones who are standing around him with large plastic smiles because they want to be on the popular band wagon. They all jump in to say that they now endorse him when they should wait until the people choose, and then endorse. Its as if they want to choose instead of letting America choose. John McCain may be an honorable man, but we are missing a rare opportunity if we allow Mike Huckabee to slide off the scene as a could have been. Governor Huckabee, you have my family and my full support and prayers. By the way, I am a small business owner and I too can't wait to see the IRS go out of business!

Looking forward to voting for him in Pennsylvania

The best and clear speech on setting forth the principles which make Gov. Mike Huckabee different. Also, pick up that Gov. Huckabee is principle in his approach to government. High view of all human life, high view of the family, understanding of economics and taxes, and practical in understanding the importance of strength for the country, which includes closing the border to those who don't want to sign in at the front door. Go Huck and Go Texas, from an Hoosier we vote later and want Huck passing in the kick to the finish line.

wreathofpearls said...

I'm surprised Mr. Mike Huckabee hasn't stepped down to help the Republican party stand united against Obama. He has got to do the math and realize that he doesn't have a chance to win. Obama is riding a wave that will lead him to the White House if we aren't careful. This wave will only take us closer to
Socialism, more taxes and more entitlement programs. Huckabee is only now picking up the votes that Romney would have had if he stayed in. He is just picking up the spoils of Romney and has been the spoiler for Romney. What he did with McCain in West Virginia was lower than low. They sided against Romney pure and simple. Dirty politics and not at all the Christian ethics he claims to have. If he was half the man Romney is, he would step down now.

IT IS UP TO US AS MIKE SAID TO PICK OUR LEADERS. IT IS ON US AS CITIZENS OF THE U.S. TO LEAD THE WAY NOT JUST TO FOLLOW. WE ALL NEED STONG DIRECTION & LEADERSHIP. MIKE IS THAT MAN BUT IT IS UP TO US TO SELECT THE LEADSHIP & THEN TO FOLLOW THAT AUTHORITY. IT IS UP TO US TO SPREAD THE WORD & TO DO THE WORK THAT IT WILL TAKE TO TURN THIS COUNTY AROUND & GET IT BACK ON COURSE. IF WE SUPPORT A MAN LIKE MIKE, HE WILL SUPPORT US LONG AFTER ELECTION DAY. WHERE THERE IS HOPE, THERE IS A FUTURE. NONE OF US SHOULD HEAR THE NAY SAYERS THAT THERE IS NO HOPE, THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE BUT ONE MUST PURSUE IT & WANT IT. LETS DO OUR PART & MIKE WILL & IS DOING HIS. THANK YOU FOR POSTING & SHARING THIS VIDEO WITH OTHER. - REX A. CHRISTIAN

Listening to Mike Huckabee is like listening to Harry Truman, straight talk, no BS! He is in Texas, and there is no BS in any of his messages. He, like Truman, is a man with integrity, God fearing, is devoted to his family, and loves his country and the military. He can think and talk on his feet! The media brought him three times to a hole with false covering, and three times he stepped aside and threw the media in the hole they dug for him. The last was the trap in the Reagan library! All I can say is don't mess with TEXAS and don't mess with Mike Huckabee! (Unless you have thirty minutes to come up with a good answer, and then you will probably be wrong!)Hang tight Mike, Texas is behind ya!

What a definitive qualifying platform of Mike Huckabee in Plano, TX for leading the United States of America. It certainly appears he is the only one with strong convictions and workable solutions for necessary changes and improvements for issues of our land. May God bless America and Mike Huckabee for the next President of the United States. And God bless his wife and family and provisions during these months of campaigning on our behalf. We thank you, don't give up.

What an inspiring speech! This is the second time I've listened to it and it probably is not the last. Finally, here is a candidate who I really believe in, someone who is actually worthy of the office. We need a an honest communicator such as Huckabee to lead our country. I hope Texas will put him on the map again.

Mike Huckabee showed character from the first moment I heard him speak. He is a man of honor, a veteran who has served his country through the military as well as through his governorship. This has been a wonderful training ground for him and I am not sure why it is not acknowledged more strongly in the media. We are behind him 100%. We have limited income and have made a donation, but, if we had more, we would send it along! Keep fighting for us. We need you. God bless you and thank you. Carl and Deborah Fliegner

There are other ways you can help too such as making phone calls or sending out emails to friends and family.

BROKERED CONVENTION:
Brokered Convention = a discussion about what it means to be a Republican.
Posted by Conservatives United on Saturday, February 09, 2008 1:45:17 PM

1) Republican Brokered Conventions result in wins!

Abraham Lincoln – 3rd Ballot - Won Presidency
Rutherford Hayes – 7th Ballot - Won Presidency
James Garfield - 36th Ballot - Won Presidency
Warning Harding – 10th Ballot – Won Presidency
Dwight D. Eisenhower – “2nd Ballot” – Won Presidency

2) McCain has to win 467 more delegates (44% of remaining delegates) to secure the nomination. Huckabee needs 639 delegates (57% of remaining delegates) to force a Brokered Convention.

3) A Brokered Convention gives conservatives a voice. A Brokered Convention gives Mike Huckabee a voice. A Brokered Convention gives Mitt Romney a voice. A Brokered Convention keeps media attention on the Republican party for the next 6 months for free! If we just roll over and go to sleep the media will almost solely focus on the Democratic contest.

4) In 1968 Reagan stayed in the race and came in 3rd at the convention with 182 delegates. In 1976 Reagan stayed in the race all the way to the convention and prevented Ford from getting to 1130 delegates. Ford cut a deal that secured enough delegates before the 1st Ballot but Reagan did not bow out until Ford had crossed the finish line.

Reagan’s Revolution says: “Reagan came into the 1976 North Carolina primary having lost the first five consecutive primaries to Ford. The national party establishment was against Reagan, the media started to write him off, and his campaign was broke and in debt. Needless to say, the pressure to drop out of the race was nearly overwhelming.”

Even though Reagan won in NC it was soon statistically impossible for Reagan to win. He still stayed in. He said conservatives have a problem with Ford and until he gets 1130 I will press on.

5) Conservatives Unite! There is still time! Win the Red States and we go to the convention for a discussion about what it means to be a Republican.

Hope this brings encouragement and hope. Spread the word !!!!

SO NOW THE CANDIDATE DECIDES FOR ME????
Hey folks,
I hope you have seen the letter Gov. Huckabee sent to McCain challenging him to the debate.
And the petition to sign in support.
Here is the link to it http://www.mikehuckabee.com/?FuseAction=Blogs.View&Blog_id =1517
Senator McCain has lost my respect completely by first acting like he knew nothing about Gov. Huckabees challenge and now saying he does not think he will need to debate Huckabee.

Who does he think he is? This man acts like he is the only republican candidate Americans have to choose from.
I would love to ask him in person when my vote became his.
What other rights would I lose if he were our President?

Anonymous said...

If everyone in the US could have a chance to hear Mike, he would be our next President. He's a natural leader, very likable, has more executive experience than all of the candidates, stands strong for AMERICAN values (family, faith, freedom), and so much more. Everybody! Keep hoping and praying! "WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE."
