Watching the MSM I've noticed that they all actively denigrate Ron Paul and his chances for election. That tells me all I need to know. They can't control him, and that to them, would be unacceptable. They will try to stop him at all costs.

You got it backwards.
41 voted Yea (2 democrats, 38 republicans, 1 other) , 59 voted Nay (49 democrats, 9 republicans, 1 other).
More than half voted against it, not for it...and it wasn't one vote away from passing.edit on 7-12-2011 by OutKast Searcher because: (no reason given)
You are correct, but I wanted to point out that the list provided is of the 41 Yea voters. These people should not see another term, ever.
Two amendments — one by Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) and the other by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) — were offered to amend this section further, though both failed with the help of Pennsylvania’s senators. The defense bill passed the Senate last night.
Sec. 1031- Congress affirms that the authority of the President to use all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40) includes the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons (as defined in subsection (b)) pending disposition under the law of war.
Covered Persons- A covered person under this section is any person as follows: (1) A person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored those responsible for those attacks. (2) A person who was a part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act or has directly supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy forces.

I guess I would care less that Americans are too spoiled, un-knowlagable, and lazy to get out of their armchairs and do something about the ever increasing evil developing in their government but unfortunately just like Nazi era Germany the filth of it is already spilling over the boarder into the rest of the world. Iran is next to be invaded and then who is the next unfortunate victim. It seems that Americans in their Walmart induced malaise will not step up before their government makes it completely impossible for them to do so, physically or legally.
