Mike Huckabee, 2016 GOP presidential hopeful, signed his own "Pledge to the People," vowing to defend the constitution, pursue an economic agenda and turn the clock back on advancements made in marriage rights for LGBT Americans.

When discussing his pledge with Fox and Friends Saturday, the former Arkansas governor said, "I'm for term limits and ending judicial supremacy."

In addition to "vigorously oppose any redefinition" of marriage,
Huckabee's pledge has anti-abortion language and calls for the defunding of Obamacare and Planned Parenthood.

The majority of the language in Huckabee's pledge come from existing pledges from rightwing special interest groups.

"I didn't want to get lost in this morass of dozens and dozens of pledges everyday," he told Fox and Friends.

*  I will now, and will for the duration of my presidency, promote and sign all measures leading to Obamacare's defunding, deauthorization, and repeal.

*  I will oppose amnesty and government benefits for illegal immigrants who violated our laws, repeal President Obama's unconstitutional executive orders, and secure our borders.
