This crowd speaks in the proverbial one key: me, me, me. Whether it is two dudes shouting over invited speakers, Cheney and Rumsfeld, girls dressed like they are going out to a Vegas nightclub--during the conference, or ambulances pulling up to the hotel at 3am to deal with alcohol poisoning, there is very little conservatives--especially Christian conservatives--have in common with these libertine Libertarians.
We may cheer and pound our chests when a speaker expresses the greatness of our country and the free market, but after three days of this, I found it a bit old and lacking any depth. I recognize the conference is not a Christian one, but cheering American greatness without acknowledging universal morality--in other words: why is it objectively excellent?--is unsatisfying to say the least. I pray these so-called Libertarians find something deeper than self-gratification, because based on what I saw at CPAC, it looked more like self-destruction. This libertine/Libertarian me-me-me philosophy is poison to the conservative--dare I say, Christian-conservative--values expressed in the Republican Party.
