Mike Huckabee Talks Smack about Public Servants

I think that the article missed the bigger story completely.

“Employees within the government always believe that it’s about more, more, more. It’s the number one word in any type of government bureaucracy.”

This is a fallacy of hasty generalization designed to demonize public employees. For some, “more” may mean meritocracy at work. For others, “more” may mean compensating for unfunded mandates.

“Every American business and every American family has had to make deep cuts in what they do. It is asking the government to do what they have been forcing on families and businesses.”

This is a fallacy of false cause designed to demonize government. It is also a straw man argument blaming the consequences of private sector corruption and failure on the government.

The biggest fallacy of all is in comparing the government to families or businesses. All three have different responsibilities, authorities, resources, and limitations. All three have different roles in society, and cannot be directly compared this way.

Huck Going To Sarah’s Turf



So that’s a “no” to civility? Coming from a religious zealot, I am not surprised. People fighting for their own religious rights are the enemy? American citizens standing up for democracy and the Constituti­on in the face of theocracy are the enemy? I don’t think so!

Huckabee is the type of republican who will never accept the Constituti­on of the United States as the highest law of the land. He has no business being in politics.

This Constituti­on, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constituti­on or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithsta­nding.”
Article VI

Oh, look, it is unconstitu­tional to put the Bible – or any other basis of law – above the Constituti­on.

And while we are at it, Mikey; Article I, section 9 says:

“No Tax or Duty shall be laid on Articles exported from any State.”

Which means that it is unconstitu­tional to put a national sales tax, or even a national VAT tax, on products exported from a state. You can go ahead and scrap your Fair Tax Act any time, it’s worthless.
