When I heard that the bill increasing FCC indecency fines was passed overwhelmingly by the House of Representatives, and that only one Republican voted against it, I knew who must have cast that vote.

A quick google search led to an article that confirmed it.

It was Ron Paul of Texas. He was the Libertarian presidential candidate in 1988, and is the “1” in lots of n to 1 votes. And, for all their concern with indecency, he seems to be the only elected Republican with a decent, principled, respect for individual liberty and the First Amendment.

“The White House issued a statement applauding the House bill.”
