Ron Paul ‘Did Not Vote’ Against NDAA – NDAA Voting Record

Let me say this first:

In my opinion he should have voted against the NDAA.

Now to Ron Paul’s defense:

As you can see below his campaign schedule was extremely tight and he couldn’t possibly made it to vote against the NDAA because of that.

The bill passed the house by 283 to 136. Obviously his one vote wouldn’t have changed anything.

Maybe the outcome (from his perspective) was already clear and that is why he preferred campaigning over voting.

8 thoughts on “Ron Paul ‘Did Not Vote’ Against NDAA – NDAA Voting Record”

  1. I am so tired of posturing and prancing of these political horses. He couldn’t even bother to vote against it, now he makes a big speech? It is beyond disgusting, it is how they all act.
    Once a horrible bill is up to be signed into law, there are always a couple of “good talkers” who speak vigorously against the “terrible” law & promise to oppose it…..once they are certain there are enough votes to pass it in any case. None of these clowns have any convictions or backbone, just 3rd rate political theatre.
    We need some true independents to stand for office, none of the fools currently in congress are worthwhile, all they care about is their own job, not the people.
    Why doesn’t Obama have a primary challenge? If ever one was needed, this is it. Reason: the powers that be want this idiot for another 4 years to completely wipe out the middle class and any civil rights we might once have enjoyed.

  2. pony business
    “Ron Paul does not elucidate his position on some very important details about the money supply, and who would issue the nation’s money supply *AFTER* the Federal Reserve is ended”

    Vote for Ron Paul as the lesser of all available evils, if you like, but if a Paul presidency would be of any positive consequence to voters, he’d have already taken his limo ride down Dealey plaza

    SOPA, PIPA, H.R. 1981 and Megaupload: Legislating and Enforcing the Fascist State
    “The MegaUpload story is important for a different reason than has been pointed out all over the web”

  3. I believe the reason he did not vote on this resolution is because of the amendments attached to it. If he votes Yea HR 4310 – National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013, then it is “spun” to say he is in favor of the whole resolution with all its amendments, including but not limited to the section where Americans can be arrested on US soil and detained indefinitely without trial. H Amdt 1127 which would have Repealed Indefinite Military Detention Provisions, in which he voted Yea, but was Rejected by the House by the count: Yeas – 182 Nays – 238 Or the Thornberry – Smith provision that allows the government to create and distribute pro-American propaganda within our own borders. If he votes nay – then it is “spun” to say he voted against the funding of troops and veterans programs, and on and on.

  4. Look at Ron’s record for all the years he was in the House. Does this one missed vote taint his entire career? I think not. I’m not a Ron Paul cult member and I don’t agree with everything he’s ever said or done. But he is light years ahead of the rest of Congress, and now that he’s leaving we can bring back the term “Gang of 535.”

    In Ron’s own words, he never had much faith in the political system. His primary purpose all along has been to spread the message of freedom as much as possible so that when the system collapses, hopefully people will realize that statism is the problem, and demand freedom. Those who are blowing a top over this non-vote need to realize that speaking on the campaign trail did worlds more good than going to the swamp to say “nay.”

    Also, why not direct your anger to the people who wrote and cheerfully passed this abomination, and leave an old man alone.
