Pastorial, I would say that we do believe in those things. With respect to equality, we believe in equality of opportunity and equality under the law, for example. But we don't believe the federal government should play as great a role as it does now in terms of equalizing outcomes. With respect to fairness, we absolutely do beleive in it, but people have very different views of what "fair" means. If one thinks that unequal outcomes are by definition unfair, then we won't agree. But if one thinks that unequal opportunities or inequality under the law is unfair, then we agree. An example of something we'd like to do to address something we think is unfair is school choice (vouchers).
