    Summary, the GOP will add to its platform an audit of the Fed system and evaluation of a return to the gold standard.

    Erm, all y'all don't think that this is just to placate the Ron Paul Camp at the convention?
    I find it very suspicious that this is being discussed as a 'Draft' policy. We all know what editors can do to a story.
    The Federal Reserve and the Mega Bank (who are bank rolling politicians) are not going to let this become reality.

    If you do think it's going to make it into official policy of any elected president and his party (except for the off chance that everyone writes in Ron Paul) well then, I've got some ocean front property in Nebraska for you.

    I think the sheeple are too easily convinced that they are not lying. What's that old saying ? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Well it's about round number 10 (or some huge multiple of 10) and they are going to be fooled again.

    Yeah, I know, they said it's not to placate so i must be just a really pessimistic person and should believe everything that is in print, on the internet or said by a career politician.

    I actually agree with you, no chance of being implemented with the current political structure and the PTB.

    This would be a terrible idea.
