In Houston, Mike Huckabee Details Energy Plan

by Patrick Svitek May 11, 2015

HOUSTON — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, the latest Republican to jump into the 2016 presidential race, took to Texas' oil capital Monday to flesh out his plan for making the United States less dependent on foreign sources of energy.

Huckabee laid out an eight-point strategy that he said could "completely transform the balance of world power," including lifting the United States' 40-year ban on crude-oil exports and ending what critics see as a similar, de facto prohibition on natural-gas exports. He also called for a stronger embrace of alternative sources of energy such as solar and wind power.

"We need to be a country that looks at the world and realizes energy is the backbone of making this world function, and we start talking about what we can do rather than what we can't do," Huckabee told a lunchtime crowd in a downtown building with panoramic views of the Houston skyline.

The proposals, Huckabee said, would move America away from an "energy-dependent culture" that threatens national security as the United States deals with oil-rich nations that do not always have its best interests at heart. The speech to the Houston Club — atop a skyscraper named after Shell Oil — was among Huckabee's first forays into policy since announcing his candidacy last week.


Read the rest:

At the end of the article:
Huckabee's speech came as he kicked off a 17-city fundraising tour in Houston. He was scheduled to raise money later Monday in Austin and Tuesday in Dallas. He is set to return to Texas on May 28 for a fundraiser in Amarillo.

He is no fool, who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose. -Jim Elliot
