    On the twelfth things of government,
    Mike Huckabee sent to me Twelve justices justifying, Eleven bipartisan participating,
    Ten laws against taxing,
    Nine liberty's liberating,
    Eight hopes no spending,
    Seven taxation with honest respresentation,
    Six governors governing,
    Five golden rules,
    Four calling outs,
    Three civic virtues,
    Two uncommon senses,
    And a smaller and simpler government!

    #1:

    The government needs to butt out of other countries' business. If they need us, they'll call us. Until then – mind your OWN business.

    I can't believe I just paid $14.96 for this book! I already KNEW what was in it. At least they got rid of my double chin and the jowel droop. Oh well, when I get senile I can at least find out where some of my thoughts went!
