CORRECTION REGARDING POST: The Huckabeean Deception

I need to make a correction to my previous posts regarding Mike Huckabee. In The Huckabeean Deception, posted Tuesday, April 13 I wrote that Mike Huckabee likes to promote or style himself in the fashion of a Libertarian. I believe this is incorrect.

The politician I was thinking of was Ron Paul, a congressman from the 14th congressional district of Texas. As a member of the Republican Liberty Caucus, that seeks to promote individual rights, limit government and reduce taxes is an example of the libertarian leaning Republican I discussed.

Ron Paul promoted himself as a libertarian Republican in the previous presidential primary races. To my knowledge Mike Huckabee has never done so and my statements regarding his “false libertarianism” are incorrect as they were based on this assumption.
