"Congressman Walter Jones has died the North Carolina Republican was first elected to the US house in one thousand nine hundred four and was well known for his independent streak. He originally voted to go to war in Iraq. But later became an outspoken critic for member station W UNC Jeff to berry has this remembrance. Walter Jones was part libertarian part populist small government religious conservative who went with his conscience, even when that meant going against his own leadership in two thousand two he initially supported military authorization in the Middle East. It was a decision. He would later regret. He tried to atone for his vote by writing thousands of letters to families who lost loved ones in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, I do that every week here. And so I can be reminded of my mistake of voting to give President Bush the authority to go into Iraq a war. We never had to fight. It was manipulated by those with India. Administration, and it was never had to be in a rare act in today's political world Jones took responsibility for what he called his biggest mistake outside of Jones's congressional office. Pictures of military members line the walls. It was a dramatic reversal for Jones shortly before the invasion of Iraq Jones had called for the French fries and the house cafeteria to be renamed freedom fries after France voted against supporting the US military action. He later said he regretted that stance as well. He spoke with an eastern North Carolina brogue in a passion for his constituents. You was a deficit hawk voting against budgets that were projected to increase the national debt much to the ire of Republican leaders who never rewarded him with a committee chairmanship. I just would rather have my independence and not be beholding to leadership, my responsibility, and my obligation is to the people at third district not to leadership on Monday democratic house speaker Nancy Pelosi was among. Those offering condolences saying in part that Jones treated his colleagues on both sides of the aisle with kindness, decency and compassion. Jones was the first Republican to call for an independent investigation into Russia's role in the two thousand sixteen election. Joe maverick I served with Jones more than thirty five years ago in the North Carolina legislature. He votes his conscience. He votes what he believes is in the best interest of his constituents, and he's not afraid to do that. Walter's political life at the national level is really a case study in what's wrong with Washington today. Jones was considered a gentleman by his colleagues and was once voted the nicest member of congress. He started his political life as a democrat but switched parties in nineteen Ninety-four before arriving in Washington. Jones's father was a congressman to both were elected to thirteen terms in the US house and each died while in office. Walter Jones junior was seventy six for NPR.

"Issue. There's a problem on both sides. And how how'd you know you've worked with? There used to be a set of Republicans that tried to go and do some things. Get past. Whatever level. The problem is that. Yeah. Well, thank you for your service. And thank you for coming back and finding other ways to continue to serve. You're exactly right. That this is not a partisan issue. This is an issue that affects every single one of us as Americans ended affects the planet affects people around the world. There are Republicans who I work closely with who are of like mind, and who share this worldview, and who are willing to put themselves forward in the fight for peace. Even if it may not be that popular thing to do. One example is congressman Walter Jones. Who's a Republican from North Carolina. Who openly shares and talks about how the greatest regret of his life. That he carries with him every single day was that he voted for the war in Iraq. And his regret forecasting that vote and carrying personally the cost of that. And who has paid the price has driven him to fight so hard for peace and to make sure that we as a country that leaders in this country don't continue to make those same costly decisions. So there are others of like mind, both in elected office, activists and leaders and organizers within our community, but this is a question that I hope more people bring to the forefront because it is too often swept aside as just one of many issues. The fact is that as we talk about the cost of war. It is not only are veterans who pay the price for that. Those who make that ultimate sacrifice friends of mine. People I served with who never made it home. Whose families never got to say goodbye..
