    The GOP Civil War: Choose a side.

    McCain essentially told the American people today on the Senate floor that if you supported Rand Paul's fillibuster, you were an "impressionable kid".

    I don't know but being closer to 40 than 30 much less being an "impressionable kid", I take offense to that comment.


    So in the GOP's Civil War which side are you on?

    I respect McCain a lot. On this issue, he is wrong. Which is fine. I often disagree with people I respect alot.

    Yea McCain's wrong all right. But civil war ?

    Sounds like a left wing narrative in the making.

    I'm with the young pups!

    McCain needs to go home and be quiet.

    IMO the sooner the old guard goes away-both sides-the better

    My dream would be for a viable 3rd party to come along,

    but I won't hold my breath waiting.

    Establishment all the way on most matters. In regard to this, Paul simply out-maneuvered most folks politically. I was impressed when I heard about it. Since many do not stand up and talk to hold up legislation, I thought it was cunning of him to do so. Its novelty is a great asset to Paul, gives not only his stance a play, a larger debate on drones, but also pivots Paul to the front of political discourse.

    The GOP does have a lot to learn about creating a narrative...

    the filibuster resulted in exposure, and a new response that can be considered a policy statement :

    now i suppose we could spend some time debating what "engaged in combat" means, but i'm reasonably convinced that there aren't any plans to kill me by drone for complaining about **** on the internet, or for marching around with a sign, although i find signs tacky, and i abhor bumper stickers.

    Paul and i don't agree on a lot, but the old timey talking filibuster was a definite win. also, back in the day when i deceived myself into thinking i was a libertarian, i used to vote for his dad in every fox news poll just so i could help to piss off Hannity. it was always worth it. lol

    Is it possible to side with the Libertarians and not the TEA Party?

    Yes, because true libertarians tend not to be social "purists".
