Dear Friends,

We three brothers began blogging for Governor Huckabee in August -- back when he was little more than an asterisk in the polls. Seven months and three hundred and sixteen posts later, we've seen him shock the world time and time again, going from second-tier to front-runner, and captivating the hearts and minds of hundreds of thousands of voters across America. Tonight, we watched him concede the race with grace, humility, and the same optimism, humor, and principled steadfastness that has defined his candidacy.

What an incredible ride it has been. Who would have thought that two 19-year-old twin brothers could make a mark on a presidential election? And yet an email reached Chuck Norris, a website launched a grassroots movement, and thousands of lives have changed -- ours included. We'll never forget the friendships and memories we've shared.

Huckabee inspired a movement. That movement will not fade. Unlike the superficial hero worship of "Obamamania," members of Huck's Army can articulate issues, principles, and a consistent, practical, and hopeful conservatism. We're not disillusioned, we're resolved. Some of us will run for office, all will stay engaged. It's all been worth it.

Brett and I are presently working on a column that will appear in the upcoming Sunday Edition of The Oregonian -- our state's largest newspaper. In it we'll reflect more fully on Huck's Army, Huckabee, and the future of the movement. We believe we'll be speaking for thousands of members of Huck's Army -- comrades we know and love.

The journey has only just begun. We hope you'll continue it with us.

Sincerely,

Alex Harris
for Alex, Brett, and Joel

P.S. We'll be posting our column on Sunday -- and other election-related thoughts as events warrant. We certainly hope to resurrect the blog for 2012. Meanwhile, to keep up on our activities, visit TheRebelution.com. We'd love to hear from you, meet you, and stay in touch.

They're talking about their own personal blog. This is a forum. Does this cost money to keep open?

This forum does cost some money to keep open. It is mainly based on the amount of traffic the site gets. I would estimate (based on the sites that I operate) that for about $10 per month and $10 per year for the domain name that HucksArmy.com could keep its doors open.

Folks - We have a Huck's Army leadership conference call tomorrow. To calm any concerns.. as far as I know, there is no reason to believe that Huck's Army will go away . We just need to think about our focus for the next 3 years. Funding will not be an issue. We know that there would be plenty of people willing to help out with that if that ever became an issue.

Thanks for the clarification Trox, and thank you to the Harris brothers for starting this incredible grass roots campaign.

I for one vote to keep Huck's Army going!

(and you're right, funding will not be an issue)

Ed Rollins said twice on tv this morning that Mike wants to keep Huck's Army intact. I don't think it's for the sole purpose of twiddling our thumbs for 4 years. I think he's going to put us to work campaigning for other worthy conservative candidates for congress. There is a paragraph in his thank you note that hints at this.


We will keep our website up and as we transition, will want to create a way to keep in touch and continue the battle for our families, our freedom, and our future. We will also focus on assisting conservative Senate and House candidates, in places where we know our investment of time and energy can make a real difference. You can expect us to be active online as we do this and to regularly solicit your opinions and support. Too many big issues are at stake for us to sit on the sidelines.

I THINK THAT MIKE IS ABOUT TO MAKE HIS WEBSITE AND GRESSROOTS THE HUB FOR A NATIONAL MOVEMENT TO REFORM THE GOP FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

I am so grateful for this forum. I had read a lot of the Huckabee blogs for awhile, heard of Hucks Army, finally joined it, but still didn't 'get' there was a forum to read (I know, I can be dense at times :oops: ) - I finally figured that out and joined in mid-February, and was sorry I had missed out on the comraderie during earlier primaries. But it has been a huge blessing in my life, to get to know people here, and to receive so much encouragement.

One thing I have really, really appreciated is all the youtube/redlasso links of media clips. I feel as though I have my own personal cable channel. :)

I hope you take the time to do a "retrospective" - what worked, what didn't work, if you could turn back the clock what would you do the same, what would you do differently, what were our major accomplishments, etc. It is very important to capture those things while they are still fresh in your minds.

Also we now have something we never had before - some time to reflect. I strongly believe that "all of us are smarter than any of us" and I hope we can harness that somehow.

I own 3 different domain/websites. The cost is quite minimal to run them. It's the designing etc. that can be more costly, but we've already got that. It should not be at all difficult to keep this site going. I'm glad to hear we will keep going. There are a lot of good candidates we can get behind. Candidates Huck backs for example? Also, we can educate. I still don't think people understand the Fair Tax. That should really be explained and pushed the next few years. I trust Brett and Alex to do the right thing. They have shown incredible maturity and insight and I anticipate seeing what they will do next. Hang on! I think the ride has just begun! Whoopeee!

I agree with Bob, we need to have an education area where we can learn about different issues as well as a spot that details current bills in Congress.

It probably wouldn't hurt to have rooms for individual states to promote state candidates. I think that we have a tremedous resource at our fingertips, it would be a shame not to take advantage of it.

This is definately a step in the right direction. We are nowhere near done with this.
