Day Two of CPAC and there's a familiar feeling of Persecution and Putin-Envy in the Air.

Supporting Sponsors require $25,000 contributions, and include: Citizen Link (Focus on the Family), Heritage Foundation, How Money Walks, Intercollegiate Studies Institute, Liberty Alliance, MPAA, National Review, Red Alert Politics, and Tea Party News Network.

Rick Perry Seems to be Running for President Again

I’m reminded this morning of words that speak to the American soul, words spoken by Thomas Jefferson, who said, “A little rebellion now and then is a good thing.
. . . instead of looking to Washington to find the front lines of the battle, I ask you to look to the states, where we find the laboratories of innovation and 50 different experiments in democracy taking place.
. . . nowhere does the constitution say we should federalize classrooms.
Nowhere does it give federal officials — nowhere does it give federal officials primary responsibility of the air we breathe, the land we farm, the water we drink. And nowhere does it say “Congress has the right to federalize health care."
~ Governor Rick Perry of Texas

Rand Paul goes Full Libertarian:

You might think I’m talking about electing Republicans; I’m not. I’m talking about electing friends of liberty.
It’s not good enough to elect the lesser of two evils.
~ Rand Paul, R-Kentucky

Rick Santorum Still Bitter About Mitt Getting Nomination

I’ve been watching a little bit of what’s gone on here at CPAC, and I hear a lot of ‘we have to win.’ Now we all know what they mean; they actually mean we have to lose.
We’re told that we have to put aside what we believe is in the best interest of the country so a Republican candidate can win. Now that may result in a win for a Republican candidate, but it will be a devastating loss for America. I don’t know about you, but I’m not out here fighting just to elect Republican candidates and let them win, I’m here to see America win.
By the way how did it work out for the Republican establishment and following their lead nominating moderate candidates in the last two presidential elections?

Brother Mike Huckabee Preaches to the Choir:

These are the things that I know: I know there's a God, and I know that this nation would not exist had he not been the midwife of its birth. If this nation forgets our God, then God will have every right to forget us.
. . . Here's what else I know: I know there is not one country on this planet with whom we have a better relationship today than we did five years ago...The snakes are running all over the world today.
Here's something else I know: I know you can't keep your doctor; you can't keep your health insurance.
I know that mothers and fathers raise better children than governments ever will...There's something wrong when the government kidnaps children from their own families.
I know the only time that Vladimir Putin shivers is when he has his shirt off in a cold Russian winter.
~ Mike Huckabee, Conservative Radio Host and one-time GOP Presidential Candidate
