To each his own, I guess. I tuned in, thinking I'd watch for only a few minutes. Before I knew it, several hours had passed. Listening to a guy speak eloquently, intelligently, and passionately about the U.S. Constitution was very refreshing.
Me too...I needed to go to bed to get up early for work, but had to keep watching. Paul was great - as you said - eloquent, intelligent, and passionate - as were Cruz and Rubio. And the Twitter-verse was on fire. I felt like yelling FINALLY!!! Someone is saying what needs to be said!!! And to hear that that squish Lindsay Grahamnesty is making fun of Paul for doing this is just digusting and disheartening...I so wish we had 300 Pauls and that the Grahanesties would fade away. Without people with the passion and courage of Paul we will not save this country.
If he forces the Constitution and specifically the 4th Amend. into the minds of the American elites, colleges and AP classrooms he’ll have made some difference. My concern is what’s the next step?
And, every time McCain rises to criticize his party, I’m reminded of the truth behind “resurrection of the dead.”
Personally, I thought what Rand Paul did last night was nothing short of exemplary, and an example of what ALL our Senators and Reps should be doing in defense of the Constitution and our personal liberties.
I sat my two sons ages 15 and 17 down in front of the computer as we watched the c-span feed online. I found the near 8 hours of Paul’s filibuster that I saw very exhilarating. It’s been a long time since anyone defended our Constitution and liberties like Paul did last night.
I suspect our founding fathers might have stopped spinning in their graves last night for just a bit as Paul spoke the words and passion of our freedoms. Just think, Rand Paul actually stood there for 13 hours and told the entire Federal Government that the Constitution protects WE THE PEOPLE from them, not them from us!!!
Thank you Rand Paul, from an Illinois Comservative trapped in this hell hole of a state!
