A Look at Past GOP Platform PromisesSubmitted by LibertyChat on Fri, 08/24/2012 - 16:38
Before we jump for joy over the inclusion of some of Ron Paul’s policies into the GOP party platform at the convention, lets take a look at previous party platform promises…
Energy Independence – Just about every platform
Overturn Roe vs. Wade – Just about every platform
Saving Social Security – 2000
Controlling Federal Spending – 1988
Privacy – 2000, “Citizens must have the confidence that their personal privacy will be respected in the use of technology by both business and government.”
The gold commission – 1981, Created by Reagan, it was a commission to look at restoring the link between the dollar and gold.
The Gold Commission – 2012, a commission to look at restoring the link between the dollar and gold.
So how important is it that Ron Paul’s policies get recognized in the party platform? Do you believe the Republican party will follow through with an Audit of the Fed, and bringing us back to the Gold Standard, if they have the votes to do so?
