Bureaucrash Inside CPAC '06, the Conservative Political Action Conference
12 Feb 2006
(...they're even worse when they think they're among friends.)
BC@CPAC.jpg
Take a look inside the "<a href="http://www.cpac.org/";>Conservative Political Action Conference</a>", which took place in DC this past weekend. Bureaucrash sent in three activists who we'd previously "saved from their conservative ways" ;) to report back on what's going on in the minds of those on the political right.
<br><br>

It's kind'a like smoking, I guess: You never realize how gross it is until you quit & then hang out in a room full of smokers. Some highlights:
<br><br>

"Let Freedom Ring USA's" latest project, "WeNeedAfence.com": <blockquote>"government owes the citizens of the U.S. Protection from all those who wish to take advantage of a free society"</blockquote>

Yeah, how dare they take advantage of our free society like that. Coming over here to be all free & stuff. We gotta stop e'm! .....Errrr, okay.
<br><br>

Pamphlets at the "Save Our Society [from Drugs]" booth:

<blockquote>"Who's Really in prison for Marijuana?”...</blockquote>

well, let's see: <a href="http://www.salon.com/politics/feature/2001/01/05/johnson/index2.html&quo;>88%</a> of them are in simply for "possession"; no violence, nobody hurt.)
.<blockquote>

..and “Starting a Student Drug-Testing Program.”</blockquote>Yikes. With them saving our society from drugs, I really want to know who's going to save our society from the state?<br><br>
The "Parents & Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX)" booth:

<blockquote>"...working to raise awareness of alternatives to living a homosexual life – alternatives that many have found to be positive and life-affirming."</blockquote>

Ah. I didn't realize you could "decide" not to be gay; or that there was anything anyone could say to you to convince you not to be gay. I mean, I can't imagine anything that anyone could say to me that would make me say, "Yeah, boys! You're right! G i r l s ?! What was I thinking?!"<br><br>
