1999 Ron Paul 93:1
Mr. PAUL. Mr. Chairman, will the gentleman yield?
Mr. CUNNINGHAM. I yield to the gentleman from Texas.
1999 Ron Paul 93:2
Mr. PAUL. Mr. Chairman, I thank the gentleman for yielding to me. The gentleman has called attention to my voting record. I would say that if I could show the gentleman that I voted 100 percent for the Constitution, would the gentleman still complain about my voting record being 90 percent, 99 percent in opposition? Being for liberty is not a negative position.
Here, Ron Paul responds to a comment by The Honorable Randy Duke Cunningham, who said,
This is a controversial issue. This is the first time this has been debated. My colleague, the gentleman from Texas (Mr. PAUL) has a full right to believe like he does. The independent view, however, is not the view, and the gentleman votes 99 percent against everything on the House floor. I expected no less. I would almost let him speak more because I think he makes our case.
