Republicans to embrace gold standard

They are

so full of shit!


If the GOP pulls off a coup with an ouster of Obama, they sure as he|| will not want to put a limit on their checkbook. They've been at this game too long - to imply that they would in any way go to a sound currency goes completely against the grain of the last 100 years of American politics.

I'm pretty sure my very own state GOP chair said

"like the Democrats, no one ever follows their own platform anyway."

This is where we all go

" Alright!! They have really come around and they respect us and love us and we can trust them!"
