[Huckabee] justifies his nanny-state and amnesty policies by speaking using the liberal Christian worldview.

No, the “the liberal Christian worldview” is Obama’s Faith…The Social[ist] Gospel.
Huckabee is not a “nanny-stater”. He is anything but a “nanny-stater”. Spend two minutes actually paying attention to what he says in the video in this Hot Air post.
Everyone focused on the unscripted, impromptu, 12-second long bad joke, but did you pay attention to the points he makes about self-government?
Also, try paying attention to what Huckabee said at CPAC. It’s an absolutely incredible speech, and it came two days after Mitt Romney proved he had joined the “axis of evil” by prematurely dropping out of the race, giving his support (and seven days later his delegates!) to John McCain and implying that if Huckabee didn’t drop out he would be letting his campaign “be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.”
Now if I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention — (cheers, applause). I want you to know I’ve given this a lot of thought. I’d forestall the launch of a national campaign and, frankly, I’d be making it easier for Senator Clinton or Obama to win.
AUDIENCE MEMBERS: No! Boo!
MR. ROMNEY: Frankly, in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.
If Romney really cared more about our country than about his own personal political ambition, he would have stayed in the race. He didn’t. He quit prematurely, based on something McCain offered him in that back-room deal behind closed doors at CPAC.
If Romney had stayed in the race, and the combination of Romney and Huckabee had won enough of the remaining primaries to keep McCain from reaching 1191, it would have forced a brokered convention, from which John McCain would have either lost to a more conservative nominee, or McCain would have had to make conservative concessions (such as signing, like Mike Huckabee did, Senator Jeff Session’s Immigration Plan) in order to become the nominee. Hence, Romney hurt, not helped, his party and his country by dropping out prematurely. Even worse, he tried to force Huckabee out of the race. Not once, but twice (on both February 7th with his CPAC speech, and February 14th when he “released” his delegates to McCain in another attempt to make Huckabee quit).
Mike Huckabee is anything but a “nanny-stater”.
People who tell you that lie have a goal of Defeating the Ultra-Right.
I’d much rather be “Ultra-Right” than “Ultra-Left” and “Ultra-Wrong”.
Look at South Korea vs. North Korea. Look at West Germany vs. East Germany when the wall came down. Look anywhere in the world where Capitalism competed right next door to Communism. Each and every time, Capitalism results in a better standard of living for people, and Capitalist governments give their citizens many, many more freedoms than fascist Socialist/Communist governments do.
