Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) Withdrawal won’t happen

Texas Republican slams Bush

Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) stood his ground and joined the twenty-or-so other Republicans that have decided to vote with the House Democrats in favor of a non-binding Iraq resolution that condemns President Bush’s troop surge.

Speaking of Bush, Congressman Paul was very straight-forward in his displeasure for Bush’s “demented philosophy of conquest.” Here is a portion of his floor speech:

RON PAUL: “In recent decades, our policies have been driven by neoconservative empire radicalism; profiteering in the military industrial complex; misplaced do-good internationalism; mercantilistic notions regarding the need to control natural resources; and blind loyalty to various governments in the Middle East.”

You can add Ron Paul’s name to the small list of the few level-headed Republicans left in Congress. (more)
