Outgoing chairman Keene apologizes for record profits from Libertarian influence.


WASHINGTON -- CPAC Corp reported fiscal year 2011 results Sunday evening. Profits were 3742, up 56% from 2010's results and up 113% from the results of 2009. Revenues posted solid gains as well, up 10% to around 11000, following up the 10% gains posted in 2010. Outgoing chairman David Keene glumly apologized for record profits and revenues, saying that he is sorry about the growing irrelevancy of the business model. Said Keene, "We are particularly disappointed in our libertarian line of products, which contributed 228 to profits in 2009, 742 in 2010, and 1347 in 2011. We realize that it is not part of our core business and will look to jettison it as soon as possible."

I saw it on one of the forum members blogs

Think it's about time to have a Libertarian PAC the same day as CPAC ;)

No, just make CPAC ours. What better way to teach them the pitfalls of interventionism?

Well, it appears they are going to jettison us aka 'ban', so getting something in the works doesn't sound like a bad idea.

Wasn't that sarcasm in there? They're not going to jettison their profits!

I wouldn't under-estimate the power of ideology and similarly, I think they believe they can make more money by not letting us expose their racket. They can't let conservatives be exposed to the ideas of liberty. Imagine the MIC getting crushed!

Let them ban us. We will just go and write in Ron Paul anyway.
