Governor Mike Huckabee revealed yesterday on Fox News that he will announce his Presidential intentions on May 5 at an even in Hope, Arkansas. Mike Huckabee is the former Governor of Arkansas. He ran for President in 2008 but lost the nomination to Senator John McCain.
Since leaving politics Mike Huckabee hosted a show on Fox News called "Huckabee," he also hosted a radio show. Recently he has ended his radio show and Fox News show to explore a Presidential run.
Mike Huckabee did consider a run for President in 2012 but decided against it. Seeing that Huckabee ended his show on Fox News I believe Huckabee will run for President in 2016.

Since yesterday was the deadline to pay your taxes to the Government, I thought it wold be nice to see the tax plans of Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz. The sections that are posted below are exerts from the candidates websites.
Marco Rubio 2016
The current tax code taxes too much, taxes unfairly, and conspires with our outmoded welfare system to trap poor families in poverty, rather than facilitate their climb into the middle class. Our reforms seek to simplify the structure and lower rates. How? By consolidating the many existing income tax brackets into two simple brackets—15% and 35%—and eliminating or reforming deductions, especially those that disproportionately benefit the privileged few at everyone else’s expense.
Rand Paul 2016
Ted Cruz 2016
Senator Ted Cruz has yet to officially release his tax plan. Through interviews and speeches that Cruz has given we have an understanding of what his policies towards taxes would be as President. The section below was taken from Breitbart.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) believes the IRS should be abolished after the institution of a simpler flat tax.

Dr. Ben Carson who currently is exploring a Presidential campaign will make an announcement about his decision on the 2016 Presidential race on Monday, May 4. If no one else enters the race between now and May 4 and Carson does indeed announce that he is going to run, he would be the fourth GOP Presidential candidate with Tea Party appeal.

Ben Carson will make a major announcement on his 2016 presidential-campaign plans in three weeks, CNN reported Monday night, citing a spokeswoman.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio made the decision to run for President over running for reelection of his Senate seat in the 2016 election. Florida law prevents a candidate from appearing on the ballot twice. If Rubio was to get the Republican Presidential Nomination or Vice Presidential Nomination he would not be allowed to run for Senate. If Rubio was to lose the Republican nomination and was not chosen to be a running mate on the GOP Presidential ticket he could run for his Senate seat. Rubio does not want to do this. Basically putting all his marbles in the basket of getting on the Republican ticket. The question is why would someone opt out of keeping their job? The National Review may have the answer for you.
Rubio’s frustration with the Senate, long an open secret among his colleagues, has personal and political aspects. The freshman lawmaker “feel[s] guilty” about the amount of time he spends away from his young family in Miami, as he wrote in his memoir. The job doesn't pay particularly well relative to what Rubio could make in the private sector. Democrats have thwarted most of his major legislative efforts, and his one big attempt to reach across the aisle, the Gang of Eight immigration bill, cost him support among the same tea-party voters who had swept him into office.
The article goes on to say that if Marco Rubio was to lose his bid for the White House some FLorida operatives believe he would run for Governor of Florida in 2018.
