Kucinich's Statement

“In the developing relationship between Iran and the United States, there are many important issues to be addressed. We should address them through diplomacy, not with threats, posturing and provocation.

“Instead of taking a cue from other nations who are trying to open up relationships with Iran, we are trying to limit other nations’ ability to develop relationships.

“The Countering Iran in the Western Hemisphere Act creates another barrier to serious diplomacy with Iran. Another barrier to diplomacy makes violent conflict more likely. I cannot support this legislation,” said Kucinich.


Kucinich was the only Dem

Kucinich was the only Dem nay? Where's the liberal outrage?

the liberals are asleep

they went to sleep after them elected him the first time. I truly don't know what will wake them up. I keep trying, plugging away at them.

A whopping 39 Congressmen didn't even bother to vote.

That is so poor. These people are worse than even the traitors who voted "Yea."

Except for a few noble

Except for a few noble congressmen such as those mentioned, I'm shamed to say the House of Representatives has largely become the House of Pussies who love preemptively attacking others ... and senators are even worse.

It's about time they voted NO on something

As opposed to this go along to get along bullshit that too many libertarians have been accepting.

SteveMT's picture

Republicans repeatedly prove that compromise does not work.

There are no compromises when it comes to Liberty. I'm glad that Kucinich voted with Ron Paul and the few others on this important issue.

How can Thomas Massie vote?

I thought he just won his election. So how did he already get sworn into office? Doesn't he enter Congress in January 2013?

Special Election

He won a special election to fill a vacated seat.

The Magnificent Six!

Maybe one of those guys in 2016...

AD in NV

The Judge 2016

If they win, then they'll have to give up their house seat. If someone like The Judge becomes president, none of our guys have to give up their seat.



My state Tea Party says we

My state Tea Party says we must accept Ron Paul because his supporters are the future of the Republican party. We are not backwards after all!

Where is the 'outgoing' Cornelius Harvey McGillicuddy IV? I thought he was on his way out and Rand endorsed him. Why not vote 'no'? Because! He does not want the revolving door to hit him on the way out.

Sincerest thanks
