I agree with the letter writer. However, Many consider Huntsman's
involvement with No Labels as incompatible with the GOP. How can
that be? This is why I have lost confidence in the GOP.Go
Figure.From an earlier DN article.(Nov 29, 2012)“This does pretty much cut the last plausible ties between him and the
Republican Party,” "The move makes another Huntsman run
for the White House as a Republican all but impossible"“I
think it spells dead end,” Scala said. “For someone to say,
'I'm going to choose no label over the Republican Party label,'
tells you all you need to know.
Now if only our other Utah senators and representatives would join the Practical
Solutions group. But don't hold your breath. They are already pledged to
the Obstruct Solutions Group.
How do you know what’s in the can if there’s no label on it.How do I decide if the No Labels Initiative is good when they
won’t tell me just what it is. The on-line summary billed as what

Mormons at church and on these DN boards that I'm NOT a Republican...Well, I get labeled as an un-Patriotic Democrat who isn't
"really" a Mormon.
In addition, some (but not all) of the No Labels group seem to carry an air of
superiority about themselves, as if they are better than the rest of us because
they are supposedly “non-partisan” or “bipartisan.”
I like it, but I can see where it would be confusing to "Label Lovers"
cause without knowing which gang created what bills, or signed what executive
orders, you wouldn't know if it was a democrat or a republican. Obama is
virtually on paper the same person as george bush. Another example: Obamacare,
literally the republican healthcare plan, created by the heritage foundation
that was a Great Idea! (when republicans presented it.)Too many
emphasize labels over substance, it's easier than actually looking at the
