Mick Huckabee is not qualified to be president.
He has no understanding of the Constitution. Here is what he said today:
"I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution," Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. "But I believe it's a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that's what we need to do -- to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards so it lines up with some contemporary view."
What exactly does he mean by "God's standards?" The Ten Commandments? Well. Those are the laws Moses said he got from God, right? Does Huckabee really think that Congress will amend the Constitution to include the commandments that say, for example, "I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt have no false god before me?" That would mean Huckabee would have to criminalize everyone who does not accept the God of the Christian, Jews, and Muslims. Not to mention the atheists.
What about keeping holy the sabbath? The Constitution would have to criminalize anyone and everyone who works on the sabbath. But whose sabbath? The Muslims' sabbath is Friday, the Jews' sabbath is Saturday, and the Christians' sabbath is Sunday. But it's God's law!! And then there's "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain." Jesus Christ! If I remember correctly most of the punishments for breaking these laws of God are either stoning or death!
Honor thy mother and father. How? Define "honor." And what's the punishment?
I've read on some conservative blogs that they believe there is nothing in the Constitution that says we Americans have the right to freedom from religion. Well Huckabee must be their candidate, since by his very words, he wishes to not only inject religion into the Constitution, but to change the very fabric of American Constitutional law and make it conform to "God's laws."
I have yet to read anyone who challenged Huckabee when he made his pronouncement.
Does he really mean to convert this country into a theocracy? His words seem to say that is his goal.
Where are the evangelicals? Shouldn't they protest this most unAmerican idea?
I believe they agree with Huckabee and would see this country institute theocratical laws based on the Bible.
The idiocy of it all is that the far right decries the Muslims and the Koran, and yet they see nothing wrong with turning this country over to fundamental Christians who would destroy our Constitution.
Huckabee is not qualified to be president. He's insane.
