Somebody has to stop the psychopaths.
Shouldn’t be a need for a filibuster but the left is willing to start a war to get away from the current scandals that appear to be fading away anyway.
The majority of the GOP are castrated lemmings.
Wow - Kerry would not look up the entire time that Sen Paul was addressing him - not once. He was pretending to write notes, etc but would not look up. Not once.
Isn’t what this regime is about - refusing to acknowledge others’ points of view and attempting ridicule to minimize others’ opinions?
What a sad state we’re in with these morons. We have Russia’s president much closer to the position of Americans. We have Isreal’s head schooling 0dumbo multiple times. We have leaders around the world calling him a coward to put politics above leadership. We have a world falling to pieces on his watch and he lays blame at others’ feet. He gives weapons to drug lords and blames others. He uses the police power of the executive branch in criminal operations and blames others.
This guy is an absolute joke. I hope we survive him and his cabal of morons.
Bring in the porta-potty and a coffee maker and have at it Senator! And, a wireless mic...
That's not exactly correct. The Constitution also empowers Congress to grant letters of Marque and Reprisal.
Many pretend these don't exist, and that they're from a bygone era.
However, what they are are military or covert operations less than war that injure an enemy for reasons of reprisal or national security interest.
So, Congress can grant a letter to pursue an objective that injures an enemy, even militarily, but that is less than war.
How about Rand Paul drop his own Amnesty Proposal first.
I’d trust him a whole lot more then.
I’d also believe, a whole lot easier, that this was more than just political theater.
Paul made a great point to horseface, if the president will go to war without the Congressional vote, it makes a mockery out of Congress.
I guess Congress has now become the U.N.
This is REAL leadership.Can you believe in light of the absolute fact that the Al Qaeda had Sarin and Assad had no reason to gas his own people that rrepuublican leadership want to give obama cover for his gullibility
I hope he does it. Americans are on Rand’s side on this issue. This country needs some leadership to explain, discuss what is going on in Syria. We aren’t getting any leadership anywhere else.
in Order to form a more perfect Union,
insure domestic Tranquility,
provide for the common defence,
promote the general Welfare,
and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,
do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Our Federal government should be addressing the issues of the vulnerability of our power grid and infrastructure to EMP attack, closing our borders, strengthening our military for defensive use only, abolishing unconstitutional laws that prevent us from becoming energy independent
rather than committing our military to another civil war in the Middle East where they will be fighting alongside the terrorists who attacked us 12 years ago and hate us.
A filibuster would be magnificant. But for it to be a political victory would require making it a standing filibuster - talking about the many ways that this proposed resolution could lead to our national security being threatened, terrorism being enabled, etc. This is a rare opportunity to lay it on the line about how Obaba and the party of international terror will destroy the United States.
Rand is kind of a grandstander. I’d be more convinced of his intentions if he said what kind of military action that he would endorse (not Syria specifically).
If I recall correctly he is an isolationist and while we dont need to be the world police, we also dont need to stick our head in the ground and pretend that the world has stopped because we arent looking anymore.
I think it’s a done deal in the senate and the senate will vote first. Then those in the house can vote “no”.
If Rand Paul filibusters, watch for McCain’s Syrian rebel buddies to launch another chemical weapons attack mid-filibuster. It’ll be a twofer: draw the U.S. quickly into war one the one hand, and damage Rand Paul’s future political prospects by tarring him as the Senator who caused more children to be killed on the other.
the support of Obama, Speaker John Boehner, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Rand Paul is in the Senate...
Wheres Harry Reid on this ???
