Today Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) address the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington. D.C. The event is a yearly celebration of conservatism, where the right’s political celebrities convene to express affection for balanced budget amendments, tax breaks and Ronald Reagan, while calling for perpetual war against “secular socialism.”
