From Hope to Higher Ground or Financial Management for Public Health and Not for Profit Organizations

From Hope to Higher Ground: 12 STOPs to Restoring America's Greatness

Author: Mike Huckabe

Mike Huckabee has an optimistic vision for what America can become with the right kind of leadership, a clear direction, and a people who are willing to believe that the World War II generation doesn't have to be the last "greatest generation."

As Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee made remarkable and innovative changes. His ARKids First program led the nation in reducing the number of children without health care; his boat tour campaign helped pass an amendment to support conservation of Arkansas' vast natural parks, lakes, and rivers; and his Healthy Arkansas initiative, which gives incentives for people to make positive lifestyle changes, has been expanded into the national Healthy America initiative.

Now Governor Huckabee presents his prescription for America in the form of the twelve key things we need to STOP doing in order to become a stronger nation. Covering a range of controversial issues, Huckabee speaks out on:

  • immigration and the shifts in America's job market
  • the rising financial (and personal) costs of health care issues
  • the need for music and the arts as part of our children's core education
  • and the mishandling of taxes.

Having gone from the small town of Hope, Arkansas, to being chairman of the National Governors Association and influencing national policy, Mike Huckabee supports the American spirit of opportunity for all and believes every American can go FROM HOPE TO HIGHER GROUND.
