Since PMs commenced their late August surge, an avalanche of gold standard-related articles “coincidentally” emerged – touched off by Republican Party PROPAGANDA, on the eve of its national convention. I ASSURE you the Republicans – nor any politicians, outside Ron Paul – have ANY intention to formally discuss the topic, much less launch “commissions” to investigate its merits. This is PURE political posturing, aiming to make it appear as if Democrats have ruined the current economy; and thus, suggesting Republicans “hypothetically” advocate the opposite policy. Heck, I’d be surprised if more than TEN of Congress’ 535 members – Ron Paul included – have even the slightest inkling of what a “gold standard” means (and trust me, it’s NOT rocket science).
