Ron Paul Wins CPAC Beauty Contest

Ron Paul Wins CPAC Beauty Contest

The Conservative Political Action Conference met in Washington this week, and hilarity ensued. Republican stalwarts were hoist by their own petard as the Tea Party they fostered bit them in the hindquarters. Loons in tri-cornered hats and outrage-loving college students voted for Congressman Ron Paul as prom queen their favorite 2012 presidential candidate. Perhaps he’ll be the centerfold in the new Tea Party magazine.

How did 76-year-old Ron Paul get such a big youth following at CPAC? His Campaign for Liberty bought the kids tickets. Now there’s a man who really believes in Free Market principles.

Dr. Paul’s political position is simple to understand and fits on bumper stickers: the best government is no government.  Our position: gotta love that blimp.

Conservatives Vote for Ron Paul

Reporters called the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) a “conservative convention.” Perhaps this reflects the recent Supreme Court ruling giving corporations the political rights of flesh-and-blood citizens.  Certainly CPAC’s big funders include entrenched corporate entities that import and refine oil and profit from the legislative obstructionism ACU and CPAC generate.
