A different kind of Republican?

Dear Editor:

What the heck is going on within that throng of potential Republican presidential candidates?

Here now is this guy Jon Huntsman. He is indeed a Republican candidate, but as such he sounds unusually informed. What are they trying to pull? Huntsman believes in science such as evolution and climate change and he actually condemns the idiocy of some having even considered not extending the debt ceiling.

He wants our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan. What’s more, he magnanimously would allow abortion in case of rape or incest. Huh?! There may even be more areas of progressive (small “p”) thinking, contrasting with that of the ultra-conservative core. Who knows? But it appears that the Republican voters may now have at least one candidate in the primary that does not match all the rest to a “Tea.”

Huntsman, however, is of Mormon persuasion, as is Romney. This will most likely conflict with the established Republican Party’s religious dogma. It will be interesting to see how this disparity plays out. It would seem inconceivable that the very existence of such a point of contention should even exist in this day and age of enlightenment, but while a brightening light allows some to see ever more clearly, others are merely left blind.
