Youth of the GOP,
This review is from: Do the Right Thing: Inside the Movement That's Bringing Common Sense Back to America (Hardcover)
I'm a 26-year-old female republican. We are a scarce breed to be sure. The 2008 election is the first primary I voted in; Mike Huckabee is the reason. I grew up under Ronald Reagan and fell in love with his leadership. I became very disheartened with Bush 41 and how our party has become the corporate party. That's why we are losing elections now. People don't trust the GOP to look out for them and the good of the country. These Wall Street Bailouts are another example of the GOP selling out. (Mike is against the bailouts.)
Huckabee's the guy to lead the GOP back to the White House. He was the only republican to stand up in 2007 and say we were headed into a recession. Well, the evidence is out and according to the numbers, turns out he was right. He has been right about a lot of things. Maybe we should start listening. Maybe he's right about the fair tax, too. I'm not convinced yet, but he's slowly persuading me.
In a year when the GOP has been so out-of-touch, this is the only man that brought in new voters like me. I just finished reading the book, and I have to say, Please read this. If by the end, you still disagree with him, that's fine. But give him a chance and I guarantee you'll be surprised how much you agree with him. It took some time for him to win me over: it may take time for Mike to win you over, too, but I assure you he will.
