Flashback: One person voted against the original Afghanistan AUMF
Barbara Lee

Ron Paul voted yes.

In 2007, the House voted to 218 to 212 to Set Date for Iraq Pullout

NYT: House, 218 to 212, Votes to Set Date for Iraq Pullout

Ron Paul voted no.

In 2007, Ron Paul introduced the Marque and Reprisal Act of 2007

Marque and Reprisal Act of 2007 - Authorizes and requests the President to issue letters of marque and reprisal to commission privately armed and equipped persons and entities to seize outside of the United States the person and property of Osama bin Laden, of any al Qaeda co-conspirator, and any conspirator with Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda who are responsible for the air piratical aggressions against the United States on September 11, 2001, and for any planned similar acts or acts of war against the United States in the future.

States that no letter of marque and reprisal shall be issued without the posting of a security bond in such amount as the President determines sufficient to ensure the letter's execution.


Of course when he introduced it in 2001, it was "for the capture, alive or dead, of Osama bin Laden or any other al Qaeda conspirator"

September 11 Marque and Reprisal Act of 2001 (PDF)

<...>

(b) The President of the United States is authorized to place a money bounty, drawn in his discretion from the $40,000,000,000 appropriated on September 14, 2001, in the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Recovery from and Response to Terrorists Attacks on the United States or from private sources, for the capture, alive or dead, of Osama bin Laden or any other al Qaeda conspirator responsible for the act of air piracy upon the United States on September 11, 2001, under the authority of any letter of marque or reprisal issued under this Act.

1. Well this is an odd post. Is it supposed to express support for Ron Paul?
I can't say I disagree with him on these points.

4. Thank you, ProSense.
I'll say it again and again, Ron Paul is a fraud and any Progressive or Democrat who doesn't want to or can't see it, is either deluding themselves or not a Progressive or Democrat to begin with.
