Home School Heartbeat has invited all of the 2008 candidates to participate in a presidential candidate interview series and will air an interview with each candidate who accepts. This week we’re talking with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in the second installment of this series. Each candidate will be asked exactly the same questions. Neither this interview nor any others should be construed to be a political endorsement.

Mike Farris:
Governor Huckabee, how can we stop judges from legislating from the bench?

Governor Huckabee:
Appoint good ones. One of the things that becomes so important in the selection of elected officials, and people ought to take their vote seriously is because, for example, a president appoints federal judges and Supreme Court justices. These aren’t just judges that will be in office for a few years and if we don’t like what they’re doing we vote them out—they’re there for life. Far more important than even a president or governor can be the judicial appointees that are made, because those individuals may have terms for life. And when they do, they could affect not just the next election; they could effect to the next generation and generations yet to come. Think about some of the liberal court decisions that really stifled prayer and Bible reading and caused people to think that those things were inappropriate in our public square. Those decisions continue to have impact. Roe v. Wade, 1973, we’re going on forty years of the slaughter of millions of innocent, unborn children because there were people who had been appointed to the Supreme Court who created a law that really did not exist in the constitution.

Mike:
Thank you so much, Mike, for being with us. I’m Mike Farris.
