11 hours strait

After years in the shadows, the administration’s secret drone program burst into very public view Wednesday with lawmakers grilling the attorney general over legal justification for targeted killings and Sen. Rand Paul launching an old-style one-man filibuster to demand answers from President Obama.

The Kentucky Republican held the floor for hours, effectively blocking a vote on the nomination of John O. Brennan, whom Mr. Obama has tapped to be CIA director. He said he would relent only if the administration publicly vowed not to target Americans on U.S. soil.


At issue is the administration’s argument that it can kill those it suspects have ties to terrorism, including U.S. citizens, without having to put them on trial.

Rand Paul is a real leader. Obama should take lessons.


So far complete silence from the white house.

What Rand Paul just did, regardless of whether Brennan is confirmed which he will be, is stand up for the every american citizen and the constitution that protects them from un-checked executive power.

Simply amazing to see someone take a stand like this and makes me realize that all hope is not lost. There are still people who care about this country and it's future

the GOP needs to really start moving away from the old white haired neocon approach and start realizing the future of this party has more libertarian ideals. Rand, Cruz, Amash ... guys like that are the future of this party and they need to start embracing that

Why even run on the GOP platform? Paul should run as a Libertarian, forget all the conformity.

becuase we have a two party system, 3rd parties are never taken seriously... even though i voted for gary johnson. 3rd parties are completely ignored by mainstream media because they want to promote the false left right paradigm to no end.

If the GOP would die off a bit more the libertarians could move into their place but as of now the GOP is the 2nd party like it or not.

I am tired of both parties but whatcha going to do? They are well oiled spending machines greased to the gills

Because a Libertarian will never win. A conservative, protect the constitution, stay out of the way Republican will. A moderate Republican don't win either... see the last 2 elections.
