    Who the hell does Rand Paul think he is trying to prevent Obama from attacking Iran if he wants to?

    Funny how the only guy in the Senate who is trying to prevent a war is a Republican and you still defend the Democrats.

    Ayn Rand Paul is nothing more than an opportunist like his old man. I'm sure President Obama is doing much more to prevent war than both of them put together.

    If he gets this passed, can we get a petition together to nominate him for a Nobel Peace Prize?

    Obama's should be rescinded.

    I agree with his amendment, but it'll never come up for a vote, let alone pass.

    "So far, only one Democrat, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), has expressed interest in signing on as a cosponsor"

    the whole things odd.

    the bill would punish any company that does or owns smaller companies, that do business with Iran.

    That's vague.

    If a company bought an iranian product from china, could that be breaking the law? The way dems hate freedom, commerce, and business, I'd say they would go that far.

    As far as adding to a bill that garuntees no war, that's just press grabbing. Nothing can stop the Pres from killing people anywhere. We have more, sadly more, than enough history of ignoring the need for a proper declaration.

    He has not yet signed on though, why is that?
