Hello, Europe!

Well, I guess this is good news.

On Tuesday, the House of Representatives voted on a bill to keep the United States from leaving NATO. It passed by a vote of 357 to 22, with 54 members not voting.

208 of the 244 Democrats voted in favor. The other 26 chose not to vote at all.

149 of the 199 Republicans voted in favor. 28 did not vote. And the Russia Caucus, comprising 22 Republican congressmen, voted against the bill.

In sum, 82 percent of our Solons want to stay in NATO. And only five percent are willing to stand up and salute Vladimir Putin.

So, I guess that is good news.

P.S. You may have been under the impression that the House of Represenatives is made up of 435 members, not 434. That is correct. But one of the Republican candidates from North Carolina practiced voter fraud so egregious that he was not seated. Probably, there will be another election in his district.
