Mike Huckabee was on the American Family Association’s radio show discussing gay marriage when he said:
“If the Republicans want to lose guys like me — and a whole bunch of still God-fearing Bible-believing people — go ahead and just abdicate on this issue, and why you’re at it, go ahead and say abortion doesn’t matter, either.”
“Because at that point, you lose me. I’m gone. I’ll become an independent. I’ll start finding people that have guts to stand. I’m tired of this.”
“I am utterly exasperated with Republicans and the so-called leadership of the Republicans who have abdicated on this issue when, if they continue this direction they guarantee they’re gonna lose every election in the future. Guarantee it.”
“And I don’t understand why they want to lose. Because a lot of Republicans, particularly in the establishment and those who live on either the left coast or those who live up in the bubbles of New York and Washington, are convinced that if we don’t capitulate on the same sex marriage issue and if we don’t raise the white flag of surrender, and just the accept it as inevitable, we’ll be losers.”
“I tell you. It’s the absolute opposite of that.”

What do you think… would he actually do it? Do you agree with him – is the gay marriage issue enough to get you to dump the GOP?
