QUOTE

“”In order for this country to be free,
there are three things we must do: feed ourselves, fuel ourselves and
fight for ourselves. That means we need to be manufacturing our own
means of defense and making it a national security issue.”

Key Issues

Energy: Huckabee believes he can achieve energy
independence by the end of his second term. He says, “We have to
explore, we have to conserve, and we have to pursue all avenues of
alternative energy: nuclear, wind, solar, hydrogen, clean coal,
biodiesel, and biomass.” He calls for a matching program between
federal research and development funds and the private sector to
develop alternative fuels. “Our free market will sort out what makes
the most sense economically and will reward consumer preferences.”
