My Personal Choice

This is my personal blog -- a place where I share my thoughts and opinions. As a firstborn (have you read Kevin Leman's birth order book?), I am very loyal to a cause I believe in. The coming party nominations and following general election are things I very much care about. I believe in the candidacy of Mike Huckabee. I know I have friends who support other candidates. But the beauty of America is that we are all given a voice. I know the odds seemed stacked against him, but the race isn't over yet. I would rather vote for the man I believe in than the man whose principles I question but think could win.

Mike Huckabee has more actual executive governing experience than any candidate, Republican or Democrat. He won re-election twice as governor of Arkansas and was voted one of America's best governors. He stands for life and family, for the fair tax, and believes in the future of the "common people." I see him as a man of unparalleled values who has a great vision for the United States of America.

If Mike Huckabee is defeated, I will have no regrets that I supported a man of Christian conviction and articulate principle. I do "like Mike," and I think God can do the impossible for His glory, according to His will. "For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another" (Psalm 75:6-7)

But whoever you vote for...let's remain friends, ok? And let's continue to pray for America.

  1. Valorie,
    I have been a "lurker" at your blog for a long time. I especially enjoy your decorating site. And have voted on your polls many times. I'm no decorater and enjoy getting ideas from those who far exceed me in this ability. Like you, I too am very loyal to the causes I believe in and I also am somewhat of a political junkie. I worked on President Bush's campaign in '04 making calls and even got to shake his hand and get his autograph on 2different occasions. If you've ever visited my blog at www.natesker.blogspot.com you have no doubt found that we have very differing opionions this go around! I do applaud you for standing up for who you believe in and I have told those on my blog to do the same. What a great country we live in where we are able to do that. I will save my opinions on Mike Huckabee and John McCain for my blog. Feel free to "Lurk" over there anytime! ;o) May God bless you and your family as you minister for Him!
