WASHINGTON -- Texas congressman Ron Paul won the straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference for the second straight year Saturday and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney finished second. Paul got 30 percent, while Romney got 23 percent of the votes of those attending the conference in Washington.
Paul is a hero to libertarians and has a fiercely loyal following. Others were grouped far behind.
The poll found the top issues for those at the conference were reducing the size of the federal government, reducing government spending and lowering taxes.

This guy is the real deal. He just doesn't follow the "republican" sound bites, he explains his reasoning behind his beliefs and backs it up with historical research. He's steadily increasing his appeal as more people are taking time to listen to his speeches. I feel the two parties would be absolutely horrified if he was elected president. I think he would stir up the rats nest in D.C. and expose the criminality that is embedded in the two party system and the Federal Reserve.
