Status Quo Candidates Stealing Ron Paul's Ideas

Forbes: The Gold Standard: A Litmus Test For GOP Candidates.

I had a dream not so long ago.

Michele Bachmann who so loves the state she felt compelled to kiss master war criminal George W. Bush after he delivered his State of the Union teleprompter address in 2008.

Bachman is reading from a script

Anyone can see she is a complete phony. How many Republicans will support someone who used to work for the IRS??
