You see, Ron Paul is actually calling on us pastors and Christians to stop seeing the federal government as one “in whom we live and move and have our being.” Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord, not the federal government. Have we not, in a material way, set up the federal government as our functional Lord and Savior? When we look to the federal government to solve our moral and spiritual problems, that is exactly what we are doing.
Ilana Mercer writes a great column about statist Mike Huckabee.
Phyllis Schlafly, conservatismâ€™s â€œfirst lady,â€ had this to say about presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: â€œHe destroyed the conservative movement in Arkansas, and left the Republican Party a shambles, yet some of the same evangelicals who sold us on George W. Bush as a ‘compassionate conservative’ are now trying to sell us on Huckabee.â€
â€œHe has zero intellectual underpinnings in the conservative movement,â€ another of Huckabeeâ€™s countless conservative detractors told the Wall Street Journalâ€™s John Fund. â€œHe’s hostile to free trade, hiked sales and grocery taxes, backed sales taxes on Internet purchases, and presided over state spending going up more than twice the inflation rate.â€
