Whole of the Senate condemns Iran crackdown---except one

Senate condemns Iran crackdown---- minus one Ron Paul.
His reasoning??
"Rep. Ron Paul, a Texas libertarian, cast the sole opposing vote because he said it wasn't the House's place to judge "events thousands of miles away about which we know very little.""
We don't know that those folks want to live free, and that they're actually responding to what they view as a fixed election?
As a great blog has opined-- "Real Libertarians do not approve of rigged elections or attacks on peaceful protesters by Brownshirts, Blackshirts, Iran’s religious police, or whatever."
