I love Rand Paul. He does remind me of “Mr. Smith” (goes to Washington) like Ted Cruz stated.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a choice in the next presidential election? I hate voting for candidate B only because candidate A is an America-hating, fascist dictator.
It better be just the beginning.
Great... At least someone is willing to fight ...
Cruz, Kirk and Gomhert were exemplary.
Follow through, Rand....follow through. There is no going back now.
I am ready to fight. Sick of the GOP!
No American should be killed be an illegal, lose his/her job to an illegal or wait in line behind illegals for health care.
This is a great American story. One man, against a wealthy army known as the elite government.
I am glad that some good men have come to his aid and joined.
Rand Paul found that his filibuster stepped on the toes of many in both parties.
Apparently, due to the Twittering and similar online rumblings, it has shaken the GOPe, who don’t know how to respond.
And then, there was McCain and his inane comments.
An historical note relating to drone strikes on U.S. soil:
“The saboteurs who came ashore on Long Island included two United States citizens who had convinced the Germans they had changed sides. One of them defected almost immediately and turned himself in to the FBI. All eight were arrested and tried before a military tirbunal, and sentenced to death. The six German nationals were executed in August 1942 (having come ashore in June of 1942). The two Americans were sentenced to what amounted to life imprisonment, later commuted to time served and deportation to the American Zone in occupied Germany. No one was executed without trial.”
Please note that 6 of them were German citizens.
McCain is gonna have a heart attack!!!
I’m surprised with the criticism of Paul on basic due process issues. If this doesn’t tell you that the left isn’t interested in the constitution, nothing will.
Time for the GOP to stop hiding, stand up and take over.
I don't doubt that. I've been on his e-mail list for some time and he is always busy. He is big on pro-life, civil liberties, government waste and spending issues to name a few. His rhetoric is the strongest I have heard from any pol. Rand Paul isn't looking to take any prisoners.
Paul earned my respect just for standing in there and DOING something.
