James BovardDuring the 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) last week, Liberty PAC, Ron Paul’s possible presidential campaign PAC, sponsored an event entitled “Repeal the ‘Patriot’ Act” that included (among others) libertarian authors and speakers Ivan Eland and James Bovard (photo at left). Earlier in the week, the U.S. House of Representatives had defeated legislation to extend expiring sections of the Patriot Act. But the vote occurred under a suspension of the rules that required a two-thirds majority for passage, and the House is expected to vote on the Patriot Act renewal again on Monday, February 14, this time with a simple majority required for passage.

Ron PaulAttendees of the 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) engaged in a voluntary presidential straw poll that often serves to indicate the ebb and flow of the conservative movement. Last year’s results revealed a surprising change in trend as Texas Congressman Ron Paul won the vote, defeating (among others) former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who was CPAC’s reigning victor for three consecutive years. If you were an attendee or guest at this year’s conference, and thus were able to observe firsthand the enthusiastic support for Ron Paul among the attendees, it would come as no surprise to learn that Congressman Ron Paul once again won the CPAC straw vote.

CPACIn 1987, homosexual activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen penned a provocative manifesto entitled "The Overhauling of Straight America", which was published in Guide Magazine, a homosexual publication. Their essay outlined an aggressive agenda to popularize acceptance of homosexuality. The co-authors further developed their plan of "subversion" and "propaganda" (their words) in their 1989 book, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear & Hatred of Gays in the 90s.

The second day of the 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), held at the Marriot Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C., proved to be eventful as it boasted an array of prominent speakers and educational/inspirational symposiums.
