D'Souza Speaks About "America" at CPAC
D'Souza Speaks About America at CPAC
Dinesh D'Souza appeared at CPAC 2014 last Friday to speak about his film and his vision for America. He said that America is currently experiencing a "crisis of leadership" and faces new challenges around the globe, from the rising tide of Islamic terrorism and an ascendant Russia seeking to rebuild an empire.
Dinesh ended his speech with a call to stand up for liberty: "Alexander Hamilton says that 'this is a country that is unique because it is based on reflection and choice.' For us as Americans, decline is a choice, but so is liberty. So let us resolve, right here, right now, that liberty is our choice."

D'Souza discussed his experiences as an immigrant to the United States, and said that he "chose America because it's a place where I can be the architect of my own life." Gerald Molen mentioned that he sees the film as "a love story about America."

Rand Paul Wins CPAC Straw Poll, Outlines Potential 2016 Platform
After winning the CPAC 2014 presidential straw poll, Rand Paul appeared on Fox News Sunday to outline what he sees as his platform for a potential presidential bid in 2016. He said that he would focus on expanding the Republican Party's base by reaching out to people long ignored by the government and younger, more libertarian-leaning voters.
He also emphasized the importance of the Fourth Amendment and the right to privacy, taking aim at the controversial NSA programs which were exposed to the public last year.
