    They can come together over an issue that is neither Liberal nor Conservative, but American. We can always squabble later over other things. But right now, we are at a crossroads, and our Constitution is at stake.

    NOTE: Just looked at the number of likes I got on my OP, and who made them... Liberals and Conservatives alike. Makes me feel good. Yes, there IS hope for America.
    Right. To what end is this great Left/Right reconcilliation ? Last time we had such a consensus we got the Iraqi War...................

    I applaud Rand Paul for this stand. People can call it grandstanding, and they might be right since he will eventually have to stop and the nomination will go through, but it is drawing attention to the subject. Many more Americans will now be aware of this issue.

    GWB said at the outset that the War on Terror would take us to new, dark places. He saw farther than most.

    Today, Rand Paul is a hero. Obama? He's a freakin' goat. I bashed the bejesus out of George Bush when he was in office, for taking a giant crap on the Constitution, but what Obama is doing is something that not even George Bush would have thought of.... No, not even in his wildest wet dreams. Obama is Bush on steroids, and his assault on the Constitution of the United States needs to be stopped. Kudos to Rand Paul for having the balls to take him on.

    Article is here.
    Rand Paul can be a bit of a goof ball sometimes, but hey when you're right you're right.

    No, you are a hyperpartisan who would rather use the Constitution for toilet paper, as long as it is your side that is wiping their asses with it.
