We Told You So: GOP Lawmakers Who Voted Against Iraq War Stand Their Ground 10 Years Later

"There was no threat to our national security, and also the arguments that they were using [for] why we had to go in, I didn't believe them," said former Rep. Ron Paul (Texas), one of the six House Republicans who opposed the war. "I could see where it was going to cost us a lot of money, and I kept saying this even before -- it's going to cost us a lot of money, a lot of lives. It's going to go on a long time."

"I just think that it was a disaster. It was wrong, and we should have prevented it," Paul said. "Yeah, we got rid of a dictator. It makes no sense.

I wish I had known

about Ron Paul when we invaded Iraq - I felt so alone in my horror that we were waging war for no reason.

And what about the peace-loving Dems? Particularly the one who was voted into office (twice) for his promises to end the war in Iraq.

The whole lot of them are culpable (save Ron Paul).

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Don't blame yourself. Those

Don't blame yourself. Those of us that were Ron Paul followers and believed (and still do) in him were called nut jobs by the lamestream media. We were labeled "Chicken Little" alarmist and anarchists. The majority of the "sheeple" in this country believed that and wrote us off as crazy. That's exactly what the media wanted everyone to believe. America is finally waking up and smelling the BS coming from Washington. I'm just glad you've noticed, joeneesima.
