Are Party Platform Gains Proof Jesse Benton’s Strategy is Working?Submitted by LibertyChat on Fri, 08/24/2012 - 13:41
Is Jesse Benton’s Campaign Strategy paying off?
It was reported earlier this week that the GOP will include in the convention platform support for an Audit of the Federal Reserve. This has been one of Ron Paul’s pet projects for years. Then just yesterday, it was reported that the “GOP plans to also create a commission to look at restoring the link between the dollar and gold”. Returning to the Gold Standard has been another policy Ron Paul has pushed for many years.
While Marsha Blackburn, a Republican congresswoman from Tennessee and co-chair of the platform committee, claims they’re not just doing this just because of Ron Paul, the reality is, they are. The Republican party forgot what the Gold Standard was, till Ron Paul entered the Republican debates. Without a doubt the GOP is feeling the pressure to adopt some of Paul’s policies, given the fact that hundreds of his delegates will be inside the convention.
So do the recent gains in the party platform, validate Jesse Benton’s campaign strategy?
