    Rand Paul: Filibuster a possibility on Syria vote

    By Sean Sullivan, Published: September 3 at 7:07 pm

    Good.All we have to do is take a look at Libya and see what has happened when we intervened in that country.No boots on the ground their huh?

    <Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), one of the most outspoken opponents of military action in Syria, wouldn’t rule out the possibility Tuesday of launching a standing filibuster over the issue in the Senate. >

    <When it comes to Syria, Paul said he believes the best hope for defeating a resolution to authorize military action will come in the House. He reiterated his view that an attack on Syria would create more turbulence and danger in the region, and may not even disable the Syrian government’s ability to launch chemical attacks. >

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I just don't think the Dems have the votes to pull it off.

    I think there are probably the votes to break the filibuster in the senate. I'm not sure the votes to pass the House are there.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    It's just amazing to me that it requires such hard work to shut down something as illegal and foolish as this is. You would think it would be a no brainer.

    Good for Rand. I don't agree with him on all things, but I'm glad he's sticking up for peace and non-intervention. This whole thing is a sham to coverup the NSA scandal, and innocent people will die because of corrupt politicians. Enough war, enough bombing, it only ever makes things worse.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero

    How could filibuster be a consideration in a matter of life and death. This is about determining who used chemical weapons. The participants on this board know more about the actual chemical weapon use than Congress will know after the relevant info is obfuscated and massaged for their consumption. Shameful! This should be an issue of logical discussion and human ideals.
