The Paul-Obama Isolationist Convergence
A congressional resolution to condemn Iran’s brutal crackdown on demonstrators was passed by a nearly unanimous vote—405 to 1.
And of course, the lone dissenting vote was cast by Uncle Ron.
The only vote against the resolution was cast by Representative Ron Paul, who although a Republican considers himself a political libertarian.
On this issue, Ron Paul and Barack Obama are on the same page:
While condemning “attempts by foreign governments to suppress the democratic aspirations of their people,” he said he admired President Obama’s cautious approach to the situation in Iran, and said U.S. criticism of other countries was often “selective” when making a political point.
