Former Rep. Ron Paul senate-control-means-expanded-wars/” target=”_blank”>didn’t wax so victorious over the Republican wave sweeping across the Senate, saying that more R’s than D’s in that side of Congress means one sure thing: more wars.

“Republican control of the Senate = expanded neocon wars in Syria and Iraq. Boots on the ground are coming!” Mr. Paul tweeted, moments after his son, Sen. Rand Paul, gave public remarks about Sen. Mitch McConnell’s win Kentucky, Mediaite reported.

Ron Paul also sent out several other tweets expressing his frustration with the Republican Party.

“Looks like big Republican win tonight. Power shift? Yes,” he tweeted, the Huffington Post reported. “Philosophy shift? No!”

And another: “Don’t expect big changes in D.C. after elections. Only thing that counts is pressure from the people. That should give us hope!”

And one more, aimed at pressing the new GOP-controlled Senate to take action on one of his own pet projects, while legislator: “With Republican control of the Senate, looking forward to a vote on audit the Fed! What do you think, Majority Leader McConnell?”
