Nothing but admiration.

You pulled it off, and as far as I'm concerned, represented me as well, if not better, than I could have myself, throughout the whole event

Mad, mad, mad props to each and every one of you.

Job well done!

Congratulations to everyone who made the efforts to get to CPAC and vote!

You won the poll for Ron Paul- and us! You spoke for many more people than just yourselves and Paul.

Thanks for your efforts!

Loving all the CHEERS this year with the win, last year there was a mix of cheers and boos. The MSM obviously played up the boos last year.

LOL at boos for Trump.

Of course not.

The system may be a lot of things, but it's not stupid.

It knows a threat to it's very existence when it sees it.

You guys are awesome, I am humbled to be allied with such a tremendous group of people and wish I could have been there with you.

Also, mad props on booing Rumsfeld, and to whichever one of you got in that perfectly-timed "war criminal!" jab at Cheney. I know Ron told you all to behave and be respectful but they were really testing the limits of our patience with the whole "Defender of the Constitution" thing. And what the hell were they thinking putting it right after Rand's speech, in the same ballroom? Surely they had to realize you were going to roast him!

I wrote in the Judge. My wifes favorite. She never complained once about stayin @ M6 a 2 star motel or the hundred bucks I spent on books or eating @ Mcdonald's every day twice a day or the 1/2 mile walk from the Metro sta. to the motel @ 11:00 pm.

Outstanding work people. I regret that I did not attend as it looked like a blast. Honestly, I fear I would've been a fish outta water there. It would've helped if any of my friends had jobs, as they all love Ron but just do not have the funds to get involved. I have really opened up the conversation about Ron, and Rand, to them.

Actually, I still have like 120.00 from the chip-in. I would like to send it to LibertyPAC but my chip-in is linked to an online business account. The rules posted on that other thread said it would have to be personal funds, soo I guess I'll send a money order. That sucks.

I brought herbal medicines as well and smoked those too. Next year, I will have to network with people in a more normal, civil way. I got into a couple of heated shouting matches but that was it.

Thanks for your thanks everybody. It was one hell of an experience and I am still pumped from it. I did not require a chip-in this time around because I live close enough to DC that I could drive in and eat at home but I will probably do some begging soon in order to get to New Orleans and Iowa and wherever else I can be used to advance the cause of liberty. I do want to say (although he asked me not to mention his name) that there is one forum member who got into the Marriott Ballroom with me early on Saturday who risked his seat to get out in the lobby and outside to round up those who were wearing Ron Paul, C4L, YAL and any other related gear on. After every neocon speaker there would be large groups of neocons who would get up and leave to get refreshments or go to the bathroom and the Cpac staff would not allow anyone in. He was out there making them open the doors and give away those seats and everytime they did open those doors there were liberty folks he put in line who poured in. So a very special thanks from me for his dedication.

Also, I am sorry I did not make the get together on Friday but my shoes were killing my feet and they were blistered up to the point they were bleeding by Friday evening. So I stayed behind and talked up some members of the media (two of whom I saw at later C4L sposnored events and they were now wearing Ron Paul buttons) and even did battle with a member of Romney's crew. Thankfully, I made our get together Thursday and the afterparty and it is a memory I will never forget and I truly loved meeting every single one of you and never felt so comfortable in my life. I hope I run into most of you down the road at various events.

you mean the Romney supporters that booed or fox news lying to the general public or the various outburst by anti-Ron Paul folks?? I was there and i didn't see anything that rises to what you suggest!! I guess they could of yelled obscenities etc but they chose to yell follow the constitution or declare war or you voted for the bailouts!!

move on and forward! I was at cpac and really didn't see the drama or hear the drama you talk about! nothing at cpac rises to the level you suggest? maybe war criminal on cheney?? Cheney should be lucky he wasn;t arrested by citizens! god forbid we hold liars accountable let alone start removing them office!! this is more making mtns out of mole hills compared to what the gop has done to f america!
