Declaration.jpgThe second coming of Mike Huckabee this campaign cycle is now revealed to be a GOP political action committee, dedicated to (drumroll): “Life. Liberty. Pursuit of Happiness.” Huck PAC’s first featured supportee is the nondescript congressman from the eastern Atlanta suburbs, John Linder. That’s more of a whimper than a bang, but then so is the Pac’s stated object in life, as blogged by Huck himself:

Many felt that their Party needed to get back to its core principles: less government, a strong national defense and unwavering support for the family and the sanctity of life…
Huck PAC is founded on the principles that make America great: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. And because we believe our Republican Party embodies these ideas and is best suited to lead America forward, we are committed to supporting Republican candidates who are passionate advocates for tax reform, a strong national defense, real border security, life, the family, less government and individual liberty.

So, now, Mike, how about your analysis of how the GOP has strayed from those principles?
