Comment: Rand, though not his Dad(who is?), is still better than

(See in situ)


Rand, though not his Dad(who is?), is still better than

the rest of the Senate. This is a more recent vote on Iran:

"In a bipartisan show of steadfastness on Iran, Senators passed a non-binding resolution - nearly unanimously - for the United States to pursue a policy other than containment, if necessary to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
Senate Joint Resolution 41 advises that time is running out on diplomacy, and it "rejects any United States policy that would rely on efforts to contain a nuclear weapons-capable Iran."
The bill reflects and supports President Obama's existing stance.

IT PASSED WITH ONLY ONE VOTE AGAINST IT, THAT OF REPUBLICAN SENATOR RAND PAUL FROM KENTUCKY.

"A vote for this resolution is a vote for the concept of preemptive war," Paul objected in his arguments before the Senate preceding the roll call ballot."
