Jon Huntsman: Conservative, Mormon, marriage equality advocate
The former presidential candidate speaks truth to the GOP's current self-disempowerment:
The party of Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan has now lost the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections. The marketplace of ideas will render us irrelevant, and soon, if we are not honest about our time and place in history. Unfortunately, much of the discussion has focused on cosmetic solutions to, say, our underperformance among ethnic and young voters. This is a mistake: we cannot cross this river by feeling for stones. Instead, we need to take a hard look at what today’s conservatism stands for.
[C]onservatives should start to lead again and push their states to join the nine others that allow all their citizens to marry.
