On days like this, I wonder if I'm still a Republican. Here's an e-mail from Huck PAC, the legacy of Governor Mike Huckabee's presidential run:

  1. Energy Independence.
  2. Tax Reform.
  3. Border Security.
  4. Life.
  5. Defending Marriage.

During the campaign we fought together for these issues and many more.

On the issues listed:

  1. Means I cannot get energy from Canada. Dumb idea. Start fighting for energy security, at the very least.
  2. Means we'll spend time fighting about secondary issues like how we raise revenue rather than primary issues like why we don't raise enough revenue to pay our bills.
  3. Is a very good idea. I'm with you Mike.
  4. Is a very tough issue. Sometimes I'm with you, sometimes not. The fight will go on. Let's keep it civil.
  5. Marriage needs no defense from monogamous homosexual couples.

But more disturbing is what's not on the list. The fight should always be for individual freedom in as many ways as possible; for government limited in scope but not its effectiveness; and for peaceful relations between different nations and peoples around the globe.
