Ron Paul votes against foreign freedom

The atrocious Ron Paul, whom John Hinderaker at Power Line once called the Pee-Wee Herman of politics, has demonstrated once again why he is an embarrassment to the conservative movement, and gives libertarianism a bad name: when the House voted to honor Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo for the Nobel prize she won, and the resulting vote was 402-1, guess whom that lone negative vote belonged to? That's right, the one and only Ron Paul voted against.

Paul's nay vote is an abominable example for an American politician. That he would vote against freedom and democracy even overseas is perverse, and it's tragic that he was reelected to Congress. What did any of the people who voted for him see in him anyway? He does not belong in the Republican party, let alone Congress, and the sooner his colleagues there get rid of him, which would be setting a good example, the better.

Update: Paul also defended Wikileaks, which, for the most part, is a bad operation, and I'm glad the head honcho was arrested in London, but who knows if he'll be extradited? Unfortunately, there's no telling if Britain will be willing to help do justice with Julian Assange.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
