Libel against Ron Paul

votesmart.org has posted the voting record correctly.
It was my mistake. I misread the data. Sorry about that. I still believe it is a good idea to have a category for libel.
www.govtrack.us says "No Vote" which means that he was absent.

The two sources of voting records are in agreement. Both are correct.
The source I used was:
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/112-2011/h932

The source used by the person who complained about Ron Paul not being there for the vote used:
http://votesmart.org/candidate/key-votes/296/

Ron Paul was not present on December 14, 2011 for the vote on NDAA.

Can anyone state the reason for his absence when the vote was taken?

RP didn't vote on NDAA. The link you provided shows that there was "no vote" from Ron Paul.

I remember being a little disappointed when the vote came around that he did not do his symbolic no vote against a corrupt system. I think he was traveling at the time.

According to Vote Smart

According to Vote Smart
Dec 14, 2011 NDAA FY2012 - He did not vote.
May 18, 2012 NDAA FY2013 - He voted against it.

You are correct.

He was traveling at that time.
