    Except he did not answer it sufficiently (not only for Paul but many Americans). Maybe the Newspeak flies for you but it doesn't fly for everyone.




    Rand was the only one making assumptions concerning this issue.
    Another assumption.

    One thing is not in dispute: every halfway intelligent individual on the planet is now wondering why no GOP pol stepped up and called Rand Paul a "terrorist" for his actions.

    FYI, to right wingers, rush limbaugh will tell you that he is.

    Rand was the only one making assumptions concerning this issue.
    Actually, several Senators made the same assumption, and supported Rand Paul. One of them was Liberal Democrat Ron Wyden. This was a situation where support of the Constitution crossed party lines. It was a beautiful thing to see.

    Unfortunately, I wasn't able to read your link, but thanks for posting it anyway. I'm hopeful other sources will pick it up.

    No. That just casts some very serious doubts on Wyden's "Liberal" credentials................

    Good evening, Bonz.

    It raised his personal standing, and it made the Country aware of the problem. That's a good day's work in most people's book.
