I have to say....I don't like Rand Paul nearly as much as I like his dad, and I'm not entirely convinced this is NOT a political rather principled move, but I have to agree that drone strikes on US citizens on US soil is unconstitutional, and the administration has not exactly been forthcoming with an answer on its position.
I like him better than his dad.
I've been following his filibustering through the evening (Spidey and I watched "Wreck It Ralph" together).
Good for him for taking a principled stand. There is a photo on his FB page with his mom standing up for him in front of her tv set.
(I tried to share the photo on FB with you . . . didn't work).

Yep, when he was a Democrat. Just like Robert Byrd the last KKK member of the Senate and Al Gore's father another Democrat vehemently opposed civil rights. If it were not for Republicans the Civil Rights act would not have passed.
LOTS of people, Republican and Democrat, opposed civil rights a few decades back.
Spidey's mom is a conservative, herring is liberal, and tewdles and I are libertarians. This was a nice thread where most of us agreed with Dr. Paul on drones and think it was high time someone, ANYONE, questioned their use.
