Jones joins Ron Paul Institute panel

Congressman Walter Jones has joined the advisory board for the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, named after the former presidential candidate and former Texas congressman.

The institute will focus on foreign policy issues including creating a “peace and prosperity index” to record the votes of members of Congress. Besides Jones, the advisory board includes former Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, and Rep John Duncan of Tennessee.

At an event Wednesday, Jones gave an intense speech in which he said he regretted his vote authorizing the war in Iraq and said former President George W. Bush should have been impeached for engaging in battle without a declaration of war, according to the National Review Online.
