    Who cares, really, what Huntsman thinks? He lives, and has lived, in a bubble. Complete with mirrors in which to admire himself without ceasing.

    Equality is a hoax and lie that can only happen in an oppressed Marxist society trying to create a nirvana of peace and dreams where no one has any independence or free will or free speech.

    Equality of man by laws will never happen because man is not an animal to be conquered or equalized. Equality is a state of selfishness that only few can share, and that few are the power lords and politicians controlling government want to remove from our inalienable rights.

    Forget the Jon Luc Picarrd future world of a one world one universal government where rights and individuals don't exist. No two people will ever feel equally represented, not even with compromise. Compromise is a surrender of will and conviction for ones self and rights to his freedoms.

    This criminal faction promoting socialism has no place in America or our culture. Huntsman is a ring leader of evil putting asunder the Constitution, freedoms, and rights of individuals as the property of the state. Another evil man professing the path of oppression and obedience to government as the power of wealth keeps trying co conquer and take away from Americans.

    Huntsman sounds like a preschooler.

    He should find the parenting article titled “That’s not Fair”. It used to be on MSN, but is available at other websites now too. He sounds just like the kids they describe. The author says "Whose kids haven’t at one point hollered, “That’s not FAIR!” when they felt cheated out of their supposed share of something?" That sounds like him and others like him.

    They go on by stating "Early on, fairness is typically defined in one of two ways: with everyone getting exactly the same thing, or the child getting everything he or she wants....Fairness is a perception about what is deserved or agreed upon,” Rode says. “It is sometimes very unfair to make things equal.”"

    So, do we need to help you learn that life isn't "fair", and that you cannot ever have a "fair" system at the same time things are equal.

    Personally I would settle for equality.

    When the GOP started saying NO to everything after Obama was elected it ended up backfiring for them. Sure they got some independents to join with them but other independents wondered where the middle ground of compromise went and they started to side with Obama. Now the parties are not only split but the independents in the middle have shrunk and so each party has to swing to its party base and leave the middle out. What the GOP didn't figure in its calculation is that the Democrats are more open to independent thinking then the GOP is and hence will be the party people gravitate to.

    I don't know why the GOP is so tied to the right wing and the tea party but it is and that's why they lost me. I believe that "We the People...." means all of us not leaving the 47% out. It also includes those that come to our country to better themselves. Finally it means expanding rights not limiting rights. The Bill of Rights does not guarantee the right to something except for this group or that group. It's for all citizens. The GOP forgot that.

    Huntsman was the best of the lot of the GOP candidates. The Grand Ole Party has to quit pandering to the Tea party if it ever wants to be relevant again.

    Most republicans aren't tea partiers.

    I like Huntsman.

    How in the world did we let him get away and instead nominated that Romney character?
