BASSIC PRINCIPLES OF CONSERVATISM: --Mike Huckabee
Lower taxes with better higher taxes.
The purpose of government is to protect us, not provide for us. We should provide for ourselves.
The best government is self-government.
If there must be a form of civil government, it should be as limited as possible and as local as possible.
The most local government is ideal in that it is closer to those being governed and therefore more accountable to the governed.
Peace for a nation is best achieved by having a superior military capacity than those who pose a threat.
Government should facilitate and not complicate the free enterprise system.
Excessive taxation, regulation, and unmitigated litigation lead to job migration.
Government intervention and regulation should be the court of last resort and not the first option in anything.
Mothers and fathers raise better children than governments do.
Government should undergird the basic family structure and not undermine it.
The Constitution and Bill of Rights were written to limit and restrict government from interfering with the rights of its citizens, not to keep citizens from exercising their rights.
Small business is the backbone of the American economy, and we should make it easier and not harder for an aspiring entrepreneur to succeed.
