Palin And Cruz At CPAC"Will Determine America's Future" Bernie Quigley At "The Hill"



Bernie Quigley, writing at "THE HILL" sees the upcoming CPAC Conference as perhaps the
moment in US history when;

 "nothing is the same ever again "History turns in an afternoon and on almost imperceptible details. The ice suddenly thaws and breaks at Odessa, Bob Dylan switches from a wooden guitar to an electric one at Newport. Exiles return, the swell and the mediocre suddenly fall into the sea, and nothing is ever the same again. CPAC 2013 could be that moment.
Below is an extract from his outstanding post-the whole item as at the link below

What happens at CPAC 2013 will divide the past from the future. Conservatives will chose between nostalgic pleasantries or a dynamic horizon. Conservatives will consolidate one way or another. In my view, conservatives will choose the future and they will choose Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin.

There is a division today in what is called conservatism, although it should be called something else. It has been forming for several years and will come to clarity and decision in CPAC 2013. The new directions — states’ rights, sound money and constitutional government — of what might be called the gnarly conservatives will come to clash with traditional or what might be called "nice" conservatives (“the establishment”). The nice: Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Dr. Ben Carson. The gnarly: Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent.

Since last week, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has moved from participant to key speaker at the CPAC conference. Cruz will take leadership, and a rising conservative movement will begin to form and will run the century.

Cruz and Palin are enormously popular outside the Beltway, especially to those in the Heartland. They have been torn apart by Hollywood and the liberal press and the Beltway pundits, while the conservative establishment gleefully sits to the side hoping they will be destroyed, like St. Paul, holding the coats.
But a door has opened and it will not be closed. The traditionalists, same as Cruz and Palin, will be judged by their work. (“I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot.” Revelation 3:15)
History turns in an afternoon and on almost imperceptible details. The ice suddenly thaws and breaks at Odessa, Bob Dylan switches from a wooden guitar to an electric one at Newport. Exiles return, the swell and the mediocre suddenly fall into the sea, and nothing is ever the same again. CPAC 2013 could be that moment.
