Florida Republican Congressman John Mica offered the following morally clear Amendment (5/25/2011-H.AMDT.318 (A018) Amends H.R.1540): "Amendment requires that the rules of engagement [ROE] allow any military service personnel assigned to duty in a designated hostile fire area to have rules of engagement that fully protect their right to proactively defend themselves from hostile actions." The results? 143 out of 185 Democrats present -- 77% -- voted against this amendment; 217 out of 235 Republicans present -- 92% -- voted for it. As for the two Republicans in Congress running who are Presidential candidates, Michele Bachmann voted for the amendment; Ron Paul voted *against* it. Ron Paul hates our troops. It is undeniable. Combined with his extreme isolationist policy he appears to most of us to be unqualified to lead our country. Even the lamestream media knows Paul is a nut and is ignoring him. Everyone has one policy or two that Ron Paul states that they like but one or two policies is not what we elect. We elect a human being and *all* of their policies must be considered. This man is a hater and I would vote against him in the General Election if it comes to it.
