Paul gets CPAC crowd on their feet
Feb 12, 2011
Texas Rep. Ron Paul addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday, repeating the mantra of limited government that has rocketed him to stardom among a certain segment of conservative activists.
Easily garnering the most enthusiastic applause of the day, Paul advocated for a complete governmental retreat in every realm of society.
“We’ve had way too much bipartisanship for about 60 years,” said Paul, in comments that drew one of many standing ovations during the 25-minute speech. “It’s the bipartisanship of the welfare system, the warfare system…it all goes through with support from both parties. ”
“There is truly a revolution going on in this country. We live in a time where we don’t just need a change in attitude and a change in ideas,” Paul also said. “We need to change our philosophy about what this country is all about. ”
