Open Letter: Shame on You, Ron Paul!!!
Posted by jeremiasx on July 13, 2007
(UPDATED: It has come to my attention that Dr. Paul did not vote for this bill because it actually included funding to EXTEND the war and that would compromise with his position on immediate withdrawal. More evidence of Dr. Paul not playing “the game” with our troops. I hereby retract MOST of these words though I strongly suggest that he releases more briefings from his campaign staff AT LEAST on why he chose to miss major votes like this one to avoid knee-jerk reactions like mine.)
After huffing and puffing about how you OPPOSE the pre-emptive and unlawful war of aggression in Iraq, you missed an historic opportunity to help END the war in missing an important vote on H.R. 2956 (The Responsible Deployment From Iraq Act, which requires a timetable for exit of US Troops) and for this…I have to say…SHAME ON YOU.
YOU MISSED THE BOAT (VOTE) THIS TIME!!!
Was this not a perfect opportunity to help end the war responsibly? Was there something fatally flawed with the bill? What gives???
It appears that you may have your priorities misplaced, sir. I am sure that your campaign is an important part of the idea of reforming and redeeming our nation, but by missing this vote and not even saying why you didn’t get back to vote I am losing faith in you as a potential candidate. I’ve supported you strongly in the past, but are you a man of principle and integrity and do you walk the walk…or do you just talk the talk?
Please help me understand this.
