The House just voted to pass it by an overwhelming margin 405 to 1. Ron Paul was the lone “no” vote, with two voting present and 25 not voting.

Ron Paul is such a funny little grumpy man. I have no reason to explai why he voted know, but I am sure it is hilarious.

One Response to “Ron Paul! The One!”

  1. I have to admit I agree with Ron Paul on this matter. Iran has always been pissed at the U.S. because we meddled in their affairs 30 years ago. We got rid of their shah and all hell seemed to break loose. Now, with all these protests, Ahmadinejad claims that we are behind the uprising. If Obama gets too involved, and if meaningless legislation like this persists, we will be seen as meddling once more. We will fuel Ahmadinejad’s words. And he may succeed in painting us as the enemy rather than himself.
