The above post originally was a letter in response to a comment on a discussion board on Facebook. Unfortunately, the thread was deleted before I could respond and then the person I tried responding to didn’t allow messages to be sent. What to do?
Well, I figured the next best step was to finally start that blog I’d been thinking about starting, to write about my support for Mike Huckabee’s candidacy for President. So here it is. “Blogging from Main Street America.”
I tried to come up with something catchy, but the creative juices weren’t there. After trying to come up with something about Populism and Kansas (since Mike is considered somewhat of a populist candidate, I’m from Kansas, and the Populist movement was the strongest in Kansas in the 1890s), I decided on the title, “Blogging from Main Street America.”
It doesn’t include Mike’s name, but I wanted something that transcended the campaign, a little bit. Because even if Mike doesn’t get the nomination (which isn’t going to happen if his supporters have anything to say about it), I want to continue the discussion that I see being started by his campaign. What is that discussion? You’ll have to check back and see!
Visit often, leave comments (nice ones, please — I’ll take debate — if it’s civil), add me to your RSS Feed reader, and tell others about the site. Thanks for visiting!
I Like Mike in ’08!
