Republicans have been in New Hampshire this weekend for a Freedom Summit sponsored by Citizens United and Americans For Prosperity. But how many Republicans there actually believe in freedom. Take Mike Huckabee, for example. He remarked:

My gosh, I’m beginning to think that there’s more freedom in North Korea sometimes than there is in the United States. When I go to the airport, I have to get in the surrender position, people put hands all over me, and I have to provide photo ID and a couple of different forms and prove that I really am not going to terrorize the airplane – but if I want to go vote I don’t need a thing.

Does this means he actually believes in freedom? Of course not. He wants to lock up drugs users in cages and throw away the key. Also in attendance is Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Newt Gingrich, and Donald Trump.
