CPAC 2013: The American Conservative Union Invites Ron Paul to Speak

http://conservative.org/n...

Jim DeMint, Ron Paul, Susana Martinez, and More Conservative Leaders invited to CPAC 2013
There couldn’t be a more critical time for conservatives to unite. As we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of CPAC, we are excited to present a conference focused on our timeless principles but also explore and define the future of the conservative movement. Among the many speakers recently invited to appear at CPAC 2013:

Jeb Bush, former Governor (R-FL)
Ted Cruz, U.S. Senator-Elect (R-TX)
Jim DeMint, U.S. Senator (R-SC)
Susana Martinez, Governor (R-NM)
Ron Paul, U.S. Representative (R-TX)
Marco Rubio, U.S. Senator (R-FL)
Paul Ryan, U.S. Representative (R-WI)
Tim Scott, U.S. Senator-Designate (R-SC)

What’s in Store for CPAC 2013?

Earlier this year, thousands of conservatives assembled in our Nation’s Capital for CPAC 2012, and, under the leadership of Chairman Al Cardenas, CPAC 2013 promises to be our biggest and best conference yet. You’ll meet and hear from our nation’s most courageous conservative leaders, participate in setting the conservative agenda for the coming year and rally support against the big-government policies destroying America."

I suspect they didn't like how attendance dropped last time when he didn't go, and also they may want to make up with his supporters now that it is too late to do his campaign any good. (OK, I'm bitter.)

Still, I hope he does it.

Remember Ron's CPAC 2010 speech?

Ron Paul would legitimize this neocon farce

I hope he doesn't go.

Paul should start going his own conservative events inviting people he trusts.

It would help us know who to support.

I like to see Ron getting his views out to others than the choir

though.

"Psychopathic Authoritarians"

I hope that peculiar but extremely interesting line from his congressional farewell speech finds its way in his CPAC speech.

Please, Dr. Paul...elaborate on that subject. ;-)

I have a hunch that those two words "Psychopathic Authoritarians" will one day become as famous, in history, as the words Eisenhower in his farewell speech uttered three words: military....industrial....complex.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Yeah, I liked that line. And we only get it because Ron writes

his own speeches...

Jeb Bush? Paul Ryan? Why?

Paul Ryan?

How he can stand to even breath the same air as those traitors I don't know. Amazing man. Really.

That's great news. Preaching

That's great news. Preaching the libertarian message to the already converted does nothing for growth. Ron Paul speaking in the belly of the beast is what's needed to keep pushing the message mainstream.

I hope the above list...

isnt the way CPAC and the ACU have released the invitees- with Jeb frickin Bush at the top? Is Jeb Bush really going to be the favorite heading into 2016? Note all the HISPANICS- the GOP is so inclusive!

Note: Rubio was invited, Rand Paul was not.

is in alphabetical order.

fill the house

for Dr. Paul
and then all leave when he's done speaking.
let's see how they cover that on fox.

The R3VOLution won't be televised. But...

the self appointed "leaders" would see it first hand. Do it. Show up to hear Dr. Paul and support his message, then leave immediately after the applause dies down.

They won't show it so while

They won't show it so while we'll all know it, nobody else will. Surely this "election" has taught us that we don't have a media, it wasn't an election and this isn't a free country.

I gotta write some business so we can support the troops. Would be great if they would instead stand up and be counted, get a job, create a job, become productive.

They call us rude when we do that. Mind you when they gave

CHENEY 'Defender of the Constitution' award right after Ron's speech (or maybe it was Rand's I forget) they asked for it.

I wonder if Ron is up for the Defender of the Constitution award? I mean, after Cheney it seems tarnished, but it would be nice to see it properly awarded.

Dr. Paul is no longer seeking office

let them call us what they want.
i'm done being polite.

heck yes, I'll throw cash on that

That old guy is a freakin rock. I really won't be surprised if they pull a bait and switch on us and don't end up letting him speak.

No way I'll bet, bro.

That is 100% guaranteed. Nice comment!
