    Many would prefer doing away with peoples Constitutional rights. Luckily we have courts to keep people like that in check.

    Ridiculous. ;-)
    It's why the military keeps their trials in house.

    He had no rights and picked him own lot in life getting what he deserved.


    Damn I love technology.
    This is the problem. He did have rights. One does not lose their rights simply because someone else disagree's with their choices.

    I see that you have to resort to lies in order to present your argument. I have no problem with the death of Anwar al-Awlaki. I have a problem with the President of the United States suspending the rule of law and using the CIA to place "hit" orders on citizens. Unfortunately, you are incapable of demarcating these points and have to resort to ad homs.

    The "wet work"? It was you who didn't want to address our asinine wars, but then criticize me while we unnecessarily kill tens of thousands of innocent people and jeopardize Americans lives over our atrocious foreign policy. I bet you have a Raymond Davis poster hanging on your wall.

    You should reflect for a while on what these four words really represent.
    I think everyone should reflect on that.

    Wow, it's amazing how confused some people are concerning the Constitution.
    So Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, the Right to Assembly, Right to Petition and all the rest only applies to citizens? I think you're operating out of a pick-and-choose position.

    Right or wrong, Ron Paul shows once again all these wannabe constitutional scholars can go **** themselves.

    He's the real deal, and not in the sense that he always interprets the constitution correctly, we can argue about that all day, it's that he has his way of viewing it, he has his beliefs and his positions and he doesn't compromise them for any whackjob or nutcase with the power to vote.

    You gotta respect him for that.

    What lies?? If you have a problem with him being dead now, you have a problem with his death. As to ad homs, I don't see any from me. You called me a hypocrite and I called you an idealist.

    Nevertheless, perhaps I've been antagonistic. If so, accept my apology.

    It's more complicated than that, but yes. If someone is here as our guests and they decide to hold a protest, we can simply decide to deport them. Same with speech. We can simply legally deport them. We can never send an American citizen off for speaking their mind. There really is nothing we can do about it.
