    This I find interesting, though not surprising. Since she spoke at the RNC, she's become what most would consider a star or even an anomaly since she's Black, Female, Republican AND Mormon at the same time. I do wonder if her speaking at CPAC is to raise her profile more if she decides to run for the House against Jim Matheson again. Their race was quite close.

    She also has liberty leanings. There was an interview where she was asked which Republican presidential candidate she liked most and she said it was Ron Paul. She's also very fiscally conservative, wants to slash the size of government and is a big Bastiat fan.

    Good to see that Rand is a confirmed speaker. Now we just need to get our other potential liberty candidates for 2014 there to do a little meet and great so they raise their name recognition among the activists.

    +rep to the person who can spell out why she lost so I don't have to do it. It's a re-occurring theme.

    - Democrats portrayed her as an extremist
    - Democrats portrayed her as stupid (like Palin, O'Donnell and Angle)
    - The LP split the liberty vote
    - Her campaign was very disorganized (her campaign manager changed monthly)

    And despite that, she still did come very close. Matheson beat her 49.3 to 48.1, so if she retooled her campaign should she run again, and CPAC would definitely be a good start, she could attract more voters who won't see her as some extreme Republican. If anything, they could probably call into question her support of Romney, knowing how that turned out.

    Tho there were reports of voter fraud, ballotpedia says Matheson had 48.8%, Love 48.5% and the LP 2.6%.

    Yep, it ended up being a 768 vote margin. By far Matheson's closest race.

    what would CPAC be without frothy?
    I hope there's a section of speakers on that list that get to speak just to introduce other people

    Bachmann and Palin's 15 minutes of fame are over.

    Amash and Massie aren't well known enough yet, but I'm sure they could have got something if they were interested.

    Ron Paul (R-TX-14) [DECLINED]
    "He's talkin' to his gut like it's a person!!" -me

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    The debate about cutting defense spending is meant to be between Lindsey Graham and Tom Coburn, but Graham has yet to confirm his attendance.

    No, Rand is only doing a keynote speech and the "Economic liberty and the rising generation" event at CPAC.

    However, all the events I listed have some involvement from libertarian groups like YAL, S4L and Cato. The liberty movement event has a Rand Paul staffer and committeewoman Ashley Ryan.
