Ron Paul should not be on your list. He is the one Republican who loves America.

You may not agree with his decision on this particular bill, but his decisions are principled, and are never pandering to special interests, and never to match poll results.

Read his columns:

Ron is one of only 3 Republicans who voted against the USA Patriot Act.

The reason he voted against HR3673, is because in principle, he is against all federal funding for local projects. He did not do it because he hates Katrina victims, wants his own pork but wants to deny them theirs, or wants to look good to Bushites who feel high and mighty over the victims. He did it out of principle, one he consistently holds. He jokes that he's called "Dr. No" when he is the lone dissenter.

Ron Paul tried to stop mandatory psychiatric screening of schooldchildren under the No Child Left Behind Act, but failed to get enough support.

Look at the person's total record. We may not agree with him (I don't agree with Ron Paul on abortion and church-state separation, for example), but he is honest and consistent, unlike Bush and his cronies. And the principles Ron Paul sticks to are not evil.

Alright, but the fact is that he voted against it. Just like I am sure I can find a quote of him saying Kerry voted against the troops. Politics is a bitch sometimes. It's all a game. Sure there are a lot of good decent Republicans out there. But this is the same as not voting for the lynching apology. Where Kerry voted for the Dem bill which did not get passed, he “protest” voted against the later… There are no two bills here.
