CPAC Poll from the Perspective of a rEVOLutionary

Ron Paul Wins CPAC Straw Poll for the Second Year in a Row

Washington, DC – Texas congressman, Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul won the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll today for the second year in a row. For years, the CPAC poll has served as a litmus test for politically active conservatives gauging the direction of the conservative movement. Except of course when Dr. Paul is in the house.

During the portion of the event leading up to when the announcement was made, the CPAC organizers began down the path of minimizing the importance of their own poll. Within minutes the main stream media picked up where they left off, starting their own spin. Are they right? Or has the face of the conservatism moving in another direction? I would say it is moving, in the right direction.

A record number of attendees turned out for the three day event, that for the third year in a row drew a larger number of participants calling for a return to truly conservative values. Values that echo the sentiments of the founders, not the deficit growing Reaganites or misguided Bush/Cheney neocons. Yes, government grew exponentially under both Reagan and Bush. There was a contingent of Mitt Romney supporters there eagerly denying his support for socialized medicine, for the Obama stimulus of 2009, and who remained silent or looked dumbfounded when asked about his recent rewrite of his 2010 book “No Apology” to alter his positions so they will be more in line with the “tea party” rhetoric. Does Romney forget that the modern tea party movement was birthed in December of 2007 by the Ron Paul rEVOLutionaries during his bid for the presidency?

As a Constitutionalist I say

As a Constitutionalist I say thank God for Ron Paul and the Internet. The Conservative movement is moving in the right direction. The State/big government directed MSM will continue to try and marginalize Dr. Paul by not reporting the facts -- Ron Paul's victory at CPAC was barely mentioned on the morning talk shows. Their efforts will prove fruitless in the end. The elephant in the room just got bigger.

Conservative/Liberal

I am none of the above. I know I agree with what Ron Paul believes is the right direction for the USA. Dr. Paul believes in liberty and also believes that the US ought to get out of the Foreign Aid business which is nothing more than robbing from the poor and giving to the rich.

Look how foreign aid has kept a Dictator in business for 30 plus years. Look how foreign aid has diminished the lives of Americans while placing some on easy street.

Love and Gratitude to Ron Paul.
