    You're telling us we can't trust Rand Paul who is merely trying to have the WH clarify what their position on drones are in regards to killing American citizens on domestic soil. Sorry, your position simply isn't credible and to be taken seriously. The burden of proof is on President Obama to clarify what the LIMITS on his power are.

    The country needs a definitive answer from the WH about this
    Wrong. It doesn't matter whether he is right or wrong. He's so completely discredited himself and bankrupted himself that I would rather be "wrong", that's how bogus Ron Paul is...................

    This is actually what I posted up on my facebook feed. Normally don't get political but this is a rather impressive situation (12 hours and counting)...

    Wow. Whatever your thought about Rand Paul, his other stances, or this particular stance...this filibuster is impressive. For years, both when the Republicans had it in and the Democrats had it, one party or another has been complaining about how easy it is to just say "Filibuster" without actually doing it in the old fashioned way. Well...Rand Paul is basically pulling a "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington". He's going on 12 plus hours now of holding the Floor and fighting for his case and views in an old fashion, talk until you drop, style of filibuster.

    CSPAN is actually suddenly interesting TV.

    Go Rand Go.

    So you admit to taking the wrong side of the issue (or at least be willing to be wrong) as long as it meant not being on the same side as a man you usually disagree with. Immature at best. Absolutely immoral at worst.

    Wow. So basically you are willing to be wrong so you don't find yourself siding with Paul.

    Btw, Ron is his father.

    How many articles of his father do you need to see before recanting this falsehood?

    No one said anything about Christianity. Morality is not simply a religious issue.
