    CPAC: Ron Paul wins CPAC straw poll - ends Romney's CPAC domination

    Attendees of CPAC, or as Chris Matthews once called it a "Star Trek convention," cast their ballots on the third and final day of the conference and Paul was the clear winner with 31 percent of the vote.
    Wait, wait, wait, this cant be right? It mustve been the liberals. Yea thats it all the liberals secretly invaded CPAC to cast their votes for Paul. No thats not right, liberals think Paul is a racist. Plus with all the anti-liberals there, they cant possibly keep a cool head. Maybe just maybe Paul's message of freedom is actually finally being embraced or maybe Im drunk thats a possibility.

    54% of the people polled there were under the age of 25. That's not going to be true in the 2012 primaries.

    Still, wow. Just goes to show how wide-open the field is right now.

    Whichever party's out of power tends to get chummy with Libertarians. They usually go back ignoring us when they're back in power.

    I never heard that liberals thought Ron Paul was racist

    Tom Tancredo yes (and he is)

    Many liberals and conservatives think Ron Paul it rather out there on more then a few issues, but I can recall anyone calling him racist

    He once had his own newspaper and its writers espoused astoundingly racist views. So yes, people have called him racist.

    The problem with Libertarian's


    Is

    Social conservatives dislike the fact they dont want the government to interfere in peoples person lives

    Neo Con types, dislike the Libertarian calls for a vastly reduced military budget

    Liberals (social welfare types) dislike the the Libertarian call for vastly reduced if not eliminated social welfare spending

    Leaving a small percentage of the population who truely wants a small government in all aspects, one that is more true to what the founding fathers wanted

    Another interesting find: 53% of those polled at CPAC said that they wish the GOP had a better field of potential candidates for 2012.

    I am happy to see the Republican's embracing Ron Paul's anti-interventionism platform!
