    He skipped the vote on allowing what HE calls "The Military Industrial Complex" to proceed.

    He can be found under: "Not Voting."



    The courage of one's convictions --> skipping the Vote that seems the Route of your entire Rhetorical Existence. Whoopz.

    This is already been discussed in a different thread. Why would Ron Paul fly back to DC to vote on a Bill that passed overwhelmingly? If I remember correctly 14 House members didn't vote.

    Why should he continue to vote? He has been voting for 20 years and it has made no difference. His vote in this would have made no difference.

    What would make a difference would be getting himself elected so next year this bill will be VETOED on constitutionality.

    This attack comes all the time.

    Ron Paul doesnt make the rules of the game, he just has to play by them like everyone else. Government puts a gun to the heads of his district and steals money. He is obligated to get back as much of that money as he can.

    The only way to stop the flow of money to the states is to shut off the flow of money to the federal government.

    Would've been better for him to waste taxpayer dollars flying back to vote.

    And to the Tim Russert nonsense, he votes against the bills, and getting money from bills that already have written into them that the money will be spent is hardly anything to point at and take anything from.

    He tries to keep money from being wasted by voting against these terrible budgets, your beloved status quo politicians approve of it, so he tries to have the money wasted in his part of town to try to make the best of a horrible situation. That's your big "scandal" on Ron Paul?
