Sen. Rand Paul is Giving a Genuine Filibuster

They've protested it throughout history. They just haven't always been "hippies."

i used "hippy" facetiously as that's what they were derisively referred to as when they (correctly) protested the "war on an idea"

anyway i just don't think that the use of drones in america should evoke some higher level of repulsion to their use than what i've already experienced, having learned of their destruction in the middle east. words like "noncombatants" don't phase me bc, like i said earlier, we've been killing the poo out of noncombatants forever. and words like "innocent american citizens" don't pull at my heartstrings any more or less than "innocent afghan citizens" or really "innocent (anywhere) civilians"

Rand needs to stop this before Obama comes and knocks him over the head with that nobel peace prize.

I've emailed Lidsey Graham why he was eating at Obamas dinner while Rand was eating a snickers and fighting for our liberties.. Can't wait for his auto response...

Dick Durbin is trying his best to stop it by saying that a committee is supposed to have a constitutional hearing on this subject in the morning.

I Hope he beats that racist democrat records A*s.

Its nice to see him getting more support with this filibuster, the most people I've seen on the floor all night.

On another forum I frequent they have sent him (Rand) a few pizzas, security wouldn't let the delivery guys through or get him the delivery. One delivery guy waited 45 mins before he had to leave. They ended up giving the pizzas to security who let them park with their flashers on outside the building.

Yeah I heard some fellow senators put a few pieces of food on his desk for him. When he yields for questions, that's when he takes his bathroom breaks. They're basically tag teaming to keep the filibuster going.

Yes I did know that about Stroms record, hence my racist democrat line... As for Rand I see no one else filibustering for my liberties. No politician is perfect, he's good in my book.

Hey there's the first african american Senator helping out Rand, R SC Tim Scott.
