A Modern Mr Smith

Post  Gomezz Adddams on Wed Mar 06, 2013 9:56 pm

Rand Paul spoke for three hours on the Senate floor in a rare talking filibuster before being joined by eight other Senators. A modern "Mr Smith". Bravo and thank you Senator Paul.

“I will speak until I can no longer speak,” Paul said. “I will speak as long as it takes, until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that our Constitution is important, that your rights to trial by jury are precious, that no American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found to be guilty by a court.”

And...

Quote

"Are we so complacent with our rights that we would allow a president to say he might kill Americans?" Paul asked. "No one person, no one politician should be allowed ... to judge the guilt of an individual and to execute an individual. It goes against everything we fundamentally believe in our country."


And...

“I have allowed the president to pick his appointees, but I will not sit quietly and let him shred the Constitution. I cannot sit at my desk quietly and let the president say he will kill Americans on American soil who are not actively attacking the country.”

Ted Cruz also tore apart Holder yesterday in examination. I never realized it before but Cruz is one of the brightest lawyers there is and has argued cases before the Supreme Court. The Tea Party had a good day yesterday.

Agreed...McCain was a war hero but is a complete POS. Graham is a drama queen in more ways than one.

He shouldn't have been allowed to remain a Navy pilot after crashing five jets. "Ace" McCain as he was known, should have been washed out of the Naval Air Forces but when both your Papa and GrandPapa were admirals even crappy pilots remain pilots.

It appears Rand Paul has nailed Jello to the wall, receiving a letter from Eric Holder stating "Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil? The answer to that question is no."

cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers

Me thinks McCainiac is getting a bit senile in his old age.

The wrong SC senator left to run the Heritage Foundation, and now we're stuck with the fallout.
