    While your scenario is far-fetched, it is not far-fetched for our government to target and kill a US citizen without due process.

    If the filibuster finally actually requires the members to recite anything then I am in favor. If Rand Paul wants to sit in the chamber and recited his mothers recipies for Beef Stroganoff that is what the constitution allows. At least he is not upholding the constitution with no effort.

    There are no hardcore liberals in my head, trust me.

    Wyden's ratings: 100% from the NARAL, 100% from the NAACP, 100% from the National Education Assoc, 100% from the Brady Campaign, 100% from AFL-CIO, 100% from the NOW, etc, etc

    0% from the FreedomWorks, 2% from the Citizens Against Government Waste, 0% from the USA Chamber of Commerce, 4% from the American Conservative Union, 0% from the Family Research Council, "F-" from the NRA, 0% from Americans for Immigration Control, etc, etc

    Looks pretty liberal to me, both in the good and in the bad way.

    I'm not there yet, but I do have an observation to offer the Right: The constant shrieking and neverending mounting crescendo of hysteria is just making people completely numb and uncaring of any "message' contained therein, either overt or covert..............

    I agree, the President is rather shrill and totally ignored these days, but I'm sure my friends on the right know this well.
