Rand is the man. This drone thing has the capability to be severly misused and needs to be changed.

Rand is one of the few up there that really gets it and is the only one with the stones to stand up and scream about it. If we had 99 more like him we would be in a lot better shape today.

How coincidental is this emergency broadcast when he was speaking.

Some will see the timing of the emergency alert test as more than coincidental, given what Senator was discussing during his filibuster of John Brennan’s nomination to be CIA director.


“No American should ever be killed in their house without warrant and some kind of aggressive behavior by them,” Paul said on the Senate floor. “To be bombed in your sleep? There’s nothing American about that . . . [Obama] says trust him because he hasn’t done it yet. He says he doesn’t intend to do so, but he might. Mr. President, that’s not good enough . . . so I’ve come here to speak for as long as I can to draw attention to something that I find to really be very disturbing.”

“I will not sit quietly and let him shred the Constitution,” Paul added.”No person will be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process,” he said, quoting the Fifth Amendment.

He and his dad are from old fashioned cloth, and that is the material we need more of in politics

I almost spit my beer all over the screen. That sounded a lot like a member of our legislature making an argument that our government shouldn't be permitted to murder or imprison American citizens without cause.

I wonder if the thought ever crossed the minds of the senators who passed the NDAA that the legislation might be used against them by a future political administration?

Sometimes it's hard to determine whether or not our government is a domestic terrorist group, just looking out for it's own interests, or trying to protect Americans in some terribly misguided way.
