From Press Release

Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee today announced he has signed a “Pledge to the People,” and will not sign any other pledges during his campaign for president.

“Today I signed a ‘Pledge to the People,’ to defend our Constitution and founding principles, and not just speak to Americans, but for them, so that every American can go from Hope to Higher Ground,” Gov. Huckabee said.

The full text of the pledge follows:

I, Mike Huckabee, pledge allegiance to God, the Constitution, and the citizens of the United States:
– I will adhere to the Constitution of the United States.
– I will oppose and veto any and all efforts to increase taxes.
– I will advocate for a complete overhaul of our tax system. This means passing the FairTax and abolishing the IRS.
– I will support a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution.
– I will now, and will for the duration of my presidency, promote and sign all measures leading to Obamacare’s defunding, deauthorization, and repeal.
– I will oppose amnesty and government benefits for illegal immigrants who violated our laws, repeal President Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders, and secure our borders.
– I will stand for the sanctity of all human life from the moment of conception until the grave. Taking this unequivocal stand includes fighting to defund Planned Parenthood.
– I will stand for the Institution of Marriage and vigorously oppose any redefinition.
– I will defend our 2nd Amendment rights and oppose gun control legislation.
– I will fight for the United States military to be the most feared, respected, and capable fighting force the world has ever known. I will restore our military infrastructure after years of abuse and neglect.
– I will stand with our friend and ally Israel in our shared fight against Radical Islam.
– I will do everything in my power to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear capability.
– I will end the national disgrace of failing to properly care for our veterans.
– I will protect Social Security and Medicare and never rob seniors of the benefits they were promised and forced to pay for.
– I will fight to kill Common Core and restore common sense. Education is a family function – not a federal function.
– I will support the elevation of none but faithful constitutionalists as judges or justices. They must be committed to restraint and applying the original meaning of the Constitution, not legislating from the bench.
– I will fight for term limits for members of Congress and judges.
