Mike Huckabee Book Tour Begins February 27 in Iowa

He just doesn’t slow down.  Mike Huckabee has just returned from an extended trip to Israel which was his 15th visit there (read this Politico article about some of it) and starting on February 27 he will embark on a twelve state, forty city tour to promote his new policy book A Simple Government.  He will kick-off that tour in the First in the Nation caucus state of Iowa and will also visit other key primary states.

The entire schedule of the book tour can be found here and you can RSVP for any of these stops and you will be sent up-to-date information on that event.  If you can’t attend one of these events you can order an autographed copy of A Simple Government or puchase the book at many other retailers.

Huckabee had this to say about his new book in an email to supporters:

Just when I think the Obama Administration can’t possibly pile on more debt, more job-killing regulations, and more intrusions into our private lives, they surprise me. So I decided to sum up why I disagree with them about spending, taxes, health care, immigration, terrorism… and just about every other issue.

And while I was pondering our current problems, I kept thinking about the Founding Fathers. They understood that the best government is a simple government. They wrote the entire Constitution in about 20 pages of plain English. Compare that to the Obamacare bill alone — more than 2,000 pages of gobbledygook!

Don’t get me wrong — I know that problems like unemployment and national security are complex. But the principles that can solve them are simple: personal liberty, accountability, standing up to bullies, putting local government ahead of Washington, and putting the family ahead of everything.

In short, A SIMPLE GOVERNMENT is about the twelve things we really need from Washington — and a trillion that we don’t.

Governor Huckabee has stated that he will decide if he is going to run for President again by the end of this summer but it looks like the early primary states are already getting a taste of some ninety degree weather.
