If anyone cared to keep up with the mindless spectacle called CPAC this year, one would've compared it to a huge coup of headless chickens. All the attendees seemed as if they were anxiously waiting to follow any blow-hard speaker that made them feel funny in the pants. Although there were absolutely no original ideas at this event, a strange theme seemed to be very prevalent at the 2010 conference.
Many who spoke at CPAC seemed to have merged many ideas from both the Right and Left and package it up as "Libertarian." Yet, those who attended seemed to champion this new Libertarian fervor at the conference. It was as if it was a Libertarian national convention of sorts.
On top of having Glenn Beck as a key speaker this year, the annual straw-poll taken at the event had Ron Paul leading by considerable margins (33 percent). So if CPAC is any kind of political indication of the so-called "Conservative Movement," then America is destined for quasi-Communism/Socialism; no matter which side of the fence you're on.
There are many people who call themselves Libertarian that don't truly understand what political philosophy they're promoting. The term [Libertarian] has been used by many to act as an alternative to status-quo, so they use this political exploit to play cafeteria politics. All the while, the intellectuals who define this Libertarian movement know exactly the direction they want to take the country; Communism. The book cover above is one of many different works by these Libertarian thinkers. Does that look Conservative to you?
This dumbing down of the American public has greatly affected our country forever. I'm starting to believe that we are genuinely seeing the last days of Liberty, for the American masses (on all sides of politics) are willing the concept to extinction. All we had to do was conduct ourselves as a country made for The People and By The People, instead you want to live like peasants and will follow any person and/or group that will promise to take you there. What a disgrace, ALL OF YOU!
