75% chance of a Second French Revolution

Republicans in a Goldy populism...

Just like the nomination of Paul Ryan for vice-president and the promise to audit the FED, this move is addressed to Ron Paul's supporters. I.e. this is the third victory of Paul in this campaign, although it is obvious he has no chance of a real nomination. But the chance to put serious questions is repaying very profitably for Paul.
