Ron Paul Brings Down the House at CPAC
by Jake Gibson | February 11, 2011
If anything can be gauged by applause in main ballroom, Ron Paul will once again win the Presidential Straw Poll here at CPAC.
Paul won the contest last year, much to the chagrin of many of the party faithful who attended.
This year Paul was the only potential presidential candidate to directly tackle the tricky subject of Egypt.
“We’ve invested $70 Billion in Egypt… and all we get is chaos for it,” said Paul. “I’m still against foreign aid for everybody.”

Paul hit on the idea of isolationism repeatedly. “The Founding Fathers talked about staying out of foreign entanglements when it’s none of our business.”
