Seems like a simple enough question doesn’t it?

Will you or will you not use drones to kill Americans on American soil?

BFD. Paul will end up voting to confirm Brennan, just as he did Hagel and Kerry. “Remarkable.”

Meh.

GO RAND!

I wish Demint were still there, too. Maybe he would tag in. Maybe not. He was a man of great principle, but Rand actually ACTS on those principles.

Yup. Not a week has passed and already people forget just how bad he screwed us. Or don’t care. No wonder Romney was the nominee.

A magnificent voice in the wilderness. Begs the question where are the rest of the republican senators? Why aren’t they filibustering with him?

The filibuster is nice Bully pulpit, and since Obama doesn’t seem to do press conferences anymore it is a perfect opportunity for someone who may consider running for office...

I sent my D senator Wyden OR who co-wrote the letter to Holder
asking if they can use drones on American citizens on American soil. Email Wyden, he was a cosigner of Pauls letter, sure would like to see him with Paul up there.

God bless Rand Paul. This man is a true Conservative, a true Patriot....he fights, and cares not if he is the lone voice in the wilderness. Yes, where ARE the OTHER CONSERVATIVES? Why don't they support each other? The other Republicans?? Who in the hell knows. They march to a different drummer, that is rhumy-eyed Boner. That sez it all.

I'm going to contribute to Rand Paul. He's one of the few Conservatives (Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio and a few more) in the trenches who fights.

Keep up the filibuster!

This is key: Does the President get to drop Hellfire missiles on citizens just ‘cause he wants to?

Well tell him to get some courage and get himself up there to help Paul. I am pretty sure that the fillibuster can be done by a group.

If the Sentate Republicans go to dinner with the president, instead of sitting in the senate supporting Paul, thent the country is finished.

“No President from any party is allowed to be Judge, Jury and Executioner”

I really think Paul and others are really overstating the “armed drone” thing. What’s going to happen is, there’s gonna be such an uproar that when Homeland Security declares “NO Arms On Drones”, that everyone will be so relieved they will just forget about the unarmed Drones spying on us everyday.

In my current paranoid state I’m thinking that just may be what they want to happen.

I just call my Republican senator to say that I would be dissapointed if the senator attended the Obama meal and that I would expect the senator to get up there and support Paul.

remarkable and all, but not everything he rambled on about was 100% to my liking since we are talking about foreign affairs. It is what is is. The main problem with our tea party is faux or fake northeastern and southwestern people hooked up with in and some just happen to be libertarian.

Yes - someone can tag in... or NOT... and the filibuster can continue.

Why do I say “not?” Because in recent years, filibusters have been entirely notional - a simple threat to continue talking. If the Senate doesn’t think it has the vote for cloture, they simply move on to other business and no real filibuster takes place.

This is a bold move by Rand as, typically, the senator who has the floor is afforded the opportunity to continue speaking before the motion for cloture is made. If there is a general belief that the cloture votes WON’T be made, then another senator COULD tag in.... or NOT... and the senate moves on to other business.

If there is a belief cloture will be made, it will come when Rand exhausts himself.

I am calling my GOP senator to encourge particpation, not that there is a chance in hell, and I am calling all the particpant’s offices to encourge them and thank them for addressing these concerns about our rights as citizens.

First Mike Lee and now Ted Cruz!!!!

It's great to see that Rand Paul has some worthy back-up in this filibuster. I've read a lot about Ted Cruz, but haven't had much opportunity to watch him in action.

That's one of the things I really like about filibusters. It gives me a chance to see some of these guys in a more unscripted setting...no teleprompters, minimal notes...how long can you speak about Constitutional issues and what are your abilities to spontaneously articulate conservative principles?

Paul Rand has been doing quite well. Ted Cruz is looking more than capable as well.

I hope this goes on for a lot longer.
