OpEdNews-Home for Ron Paul supporters?
Seems it has become just that over there. Check out this new post about Paul. It does NOT contain any references or support links for all the verbage spewed on behalf of Ron Paul..interesting no? So I supported my pov on Paul with links in my comment there, which I will post here:
Facts about Ron Paul
His voting record shows he votes with the Repub party line 75% of the time. Source: http://projects.washingtonpost.com/congress/members/p000583/
Key Votes and Pauls vote on those, if he voted at all:
Vote 40: H R 6: This bill would repeal tax cuts to oil companies and mandate that they pay a fee to remove oil from the Gulf of Mexico. It would also fund renewable energy programs. The act would repeal a tax break that oil and gas firms received in 2004. That break effectively lowered their corporate tax rates. It would also bar oil companies from bidding on new federal leases unless they pay a fee or renegotiate improperly drafted leases from the late ’90s. Those leases did not require royalty payments on Gulf of Mexico oil production. Oil firms would pay a “conservation fee” for oil taken from the gulf.-Paul voted NO on this one along the Repub party line
Vote 18: H R 2: This bill would increase the federal minimum wage from $5.15 an hour to $7.25 an hour over two years..-Paul voted NO on this along the (R) party line
Vote 135: H R 4297: Extended the Bush tax cuts.-Paul voted yes along the (R) party line
Vote 6: H RES 5: Instituted a number of changes in the ethics rules that govern the conduct of individual members of Congress.-Paul voted NO along the (R) party line

His voting record sucks, his bill sponsorship sucks and his environmental support sucks..a real good candidate for anyone that supports Big Oil, wants a President that can’t get anything done or one who won’t show up for work over a quarter of the time.
