Jon Huntsman: The one SANE republican candidate
I’ve been so scared for the future of this country of late when learning of the candidates we will eventually choose to be president in 2012. You’ve got a group of puppets driven by the Tea Party. The Tea Party movement has their hands so far up these candidates ass’s you can almost see one of their middle fingers when Michelle Bachmann speaks.
Being a centrist, politically, affords me something called common sense. I’m not driven by a particular party’s agenda, but by what is “right” for me, my family and my community. Because, let’s be honest, what’s “right” is subjective.
What scares me? I’m glad you asked. Candidates who are driven by their faith scares me. Candidates who are driven by the Tea Party movement scares me. Candidates who can’t use common sense and logic to put their egos aside for the sake of what man understand today – being science.
Below is a video of an interiview with Jon Huntsman; Republican presidential candidate. He’s a self-admitted center-right. In his interview, he talks about the other candidates being fringe. And he’s correct. They’re just too far right to do the country, a mixture of both, any good at all. Problem is, there are those who consider themselves Republican and will vote with their party. They don’t care about the issues as much as whether or not there’s an “R” next to their name.
He admits that the Republican party has gotten away from it’s core values. And he blames the Tea Party for it. And from what I can tell, he’s the Republican that’s got my vote. Why? Because he let’s the professionals do their jobs.
ALL of the Republican candidates, with the exception of Jon Huntsman, do not believe in Climate Change nor do they believe in evolution. Considering that we teach our children climate change and evolution in high schools, don’t you think it’d be a good idea that our country’s leader atleast remain unbiased on the subject? This blows my mind. “Johnny, you failed science this quarter. Why?” Johnny crosses his arms and with a smug response says, “The president says that evolution is nonsense. That it’s not even real.” How do you respond to that, as a science teacher? The most powerful man in the country says what you’re teaching is false. What!
Jon Huntsman has declared that the Republican party is becoming more and more the “Anti-Science” party every year. And this scares him. As well it should. They look like fools out their on stage. But what’s really sad is, there’s just enough fools to vote them into office. Watch the video. And if you are one of the puppets who will vote Republican no matter what, then at least vote for one who has removed the Tea Bagger’s hand before speaking.
