Lloyd Marcus, the musical star of the Tea Party movement, writes on his experience at CPAC. Quick quotes:
I performed my “American Tea Party Anthem” and “Twenty Ten: We’re Gonna Vote Them Out” at CPAC as a representative for TeaPartyExpress.org. I was struck and excited by the high number of youths in attendance (over 50% were under 25 years old). With liberal iron-fisted dictatorship regimes ruling most of America’s campuses, how did these kids survive the attempts to indoctrinate them?
It was also exciting to see many fellow black conservatives at CPAC. Interestingly, every black with whom I spoke had an entrepreneurial gleam in his eyes which broadcast, “I’m grateful to be born in America, and I am going for it!” I detected no hint of entitlement or victim mindsets in these blacks. They were truly refreshing.
