against 'body armor for the troops'. The commercial actually said 'why does Ron Paul want the troops to die', never mind that there were billions of dollars at any time in the pipeline to get the troops out. If you vote to fund it, you are voting for war. Obama said the same thing as a Senate candidate - then changed his mind as a Senator and voted to fund.
The purse string is the only string Congress has left, and precious little of that the way they pretend Congress shouldn't earmark but give all money in a blank check to the executive.
I'm not taking a position on Rand's vote until I am clearer on the Feinstein amendment, because that as an accomplishment is one thing, but the idea that you need to vote for the annual NDAA to get along is sheer cowardice and abrogation of duty, to me.
Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul
