Rand Paul (R-KY) - Filibustering away...

Postby SomeGuy » Wed 06 Mar 2013 11:44 am

This morning, Senator Rand Paul can be seen on C-SPAN filibustering the Brennan nomination and insisting he will do so until President Obama clarifies whether his administration believes the federal government can indeed use drone strikes to kill U.S. citizens on U.S. soil without an act of Congress, as has been suggested.

Senate filibustering isn't all that unusual these days, but the way he's doing it certainly is: i.e., the old fashioned way ... by making a speech and not yielding the floor.

As of the time of this posting, Sen. Paul is closing in on his second straight hour. His remarks thus far have been fairly clear-headed and thoughtful.

I sent Hatch a tweet yesterday just before Rand stopped asking where he (Hatch) was on this. Nothing heard!

Hatch is already on record as saying it is not the Senate's job to hold up political appointments. According to Hatch, the Senate should be naught more than a big ole 100 person rubber stamp.

I know this... I was just trying to give him a chance let me know that he is starting to SEE THE FREAKING LIGHT! And Rand's actions while it did delay the confirmation vote was to establish that the administration is LIMITED in its actions regarding US citizens in the US boundries by the US CONSTITUTION!

This is Hatch's last term. He has never listened to his constituents before, why would he as a lame duck?

Yes, but even voting "present", he would be committing perjury.....
If the American people understand the Constitution, freedom can survive a government that ignores the Constitution, because the people can intervene. But if the American people as a whole are ignorant of the Constitution, freedom is ultimately doomed.
