Apparently the Ron Paul Revolution was a text book case of what the Chinese called "Paper Tigers"
After all of this tough talk, brinksmanship, and jaw-jutting pugnaciousness, when show time came, it was all just talk. The Paulites followed orders, fell into step and sold out every principle they claimed to champion.
I was kind of rooting for them. Not for the usual cynical reasons that they would undermine Romney candidacy, but because I was hoping to see at least ONE group stand up to the moneyed establishment. I wanted to see one group actually stand on principle.
The conventional wisdom is that "everyone has a price". This does not shock me. What shocks me is how low the price is.
