"Men did not make the earth ... it is the value of the improvement only, and not the earth itself, that is individual property... Every proprietor owes to the community a ground rent for the land which he holds." -- Thomas Paine, Agrarian Justice
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.
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.
