As was posted here before there was a challenge on facebook and twitter tonight from 7-10 pm EST to promote this petition. On top of that Huckabee promoted it on Greta tonight.

I have a blog with a post about the petition that I did awhile back and all of a sudden my comment section went wild on this post and the hits were off the charts. It seems that after Huckabee was on Greta the nation must have googled it. Most of the comments were people on fire against the government. Also, I think they came to my blog because the Huck PAC website crashed and they left comments about that too because they wanted to be sure to be included in the petition and were frustrated that they couldn't sign. (Most thought that it was a conspiracy that the website crashed......that certain "people" were blocking the effort. You know, the left-wingers.)

As of now the website is still down. I think Huckabee lit a fire with this one.

Oh, my, Really :shock: It craashed. I hope that the people are patient to sign it. I am glad I'd signed it early on. I wonder how many people tried to sign it. I just realized that some time ago when I tried to check out huckpac; it said service not available. I thought it was my computer, but I just went there and it is still down. Awesome problem for Mike to have.

Huck's tweet just said that 4,000 people signed it in 30 minutes and crashed the server.

My blog is up to 8,000 hits in one hour.

Just got word that they kept fixing the website but it kept crashing due to traffic. They wanted 50,000 signatures by midnight tonight and they are now at 53,434.

Huck PAC is still down. Can you imagine what the number of signatures would be if the site hadn't crashed?

My jaw is dropping in amazement. Great job! Gov. Huckabee's moral capital is growing and his influence spreading. This is the goal, to lead America to conservative values, and these are particularly strong fiscal values. Balance, cut, save.

I hope he will announce this again tonight on Hannity and tomorrow morning on Fox and Friends. This satellite/cable network is giving Mike great visibility.

Behold the power of Gov. Huckabee getting directly involved. I am glad he did this. I know some have not been happy with me for my criticism but this has always been my point. With Gov. Huckabee himself asks people to do something, it is a thousand times more effective.

Right on, Jason. I have often wondered why he has not used his bully pulpit to promote his PAC more. (Actually, he wasn't promoting his PAC by encouraging people to sign the petition but the website address for the petition is Huck PAC.......same thing.)

This defininitely shows this man has the ability to inspire the masses. Hopefully the Tea Party movement is noticing.

Having all those signatures (& email addresses) definitely is good for HuckPAC & GH. Targeted email addresses are gold, and should help with fundraising, both now and possibly in a run for 2012.

Way to go Gov.!

His twitter followers also went up by 1000 overnight. It was about 300 in the first 10 minuites. I wish he would mention during his show to follow him on twitter.

70,465..............

They added additional servers today. Maybe that will help with the traffic but it still may crash. Huckabee will possibly mention the petition on his show this weekend. That will bring down the house.

Very exciting. And yes, it shows the power of his presence and leadership. People are hungry out there - and it's a wise leader who responds to it and shows the way.

This is going to be fun....

I would not be suprised if it goes way over 100,000 votes. If every person who watched the show clicked in to vote........ the numbers would be through the roof. :!: :wink: :mrgreen:
