Any Republican Senator Not Standing with Rand on That Senate Floor Just Half a Man as Far as I'm Concerned...

'If there were an ounce of courage in this body 
I would be joined by other senators… 
saying they will not tolerate this'

Along the way on rookie Senator Rand Paul's epic -and ongoing- filibuster, he had a little help from his friends... 

-with such patriots as Ted Cruz asking lengthy questions in order to give the man's voice a break. I think my favorite part was when Senator Paul said we'll have no notice, no warning if the President decides you're one he needs to dispose of- all you'll hear is the buzz of the plane before it sends a Hellfire up your rear-end: Paul: "Is this what we want from government?"

As for progress, the White House hasn't had a word to say on whether they think it's legal for Dear Leader to assassinate US citizens with drones... and won't even answer the phone. Unsurprisingly, the American MSM has pretty much buried the story, save Fox.

'I have allowed the president to pick his political appointees… but I will not sit quietly and
let him shred the Constitution.'

But shamefully, twelve Senators collaborationists were in-fact having dinner with Obama at a nearby restaurant while Rand Paul made a brave and principled stand -on the 177th anniversary of the Alamo... these are people NOT on the side of Liberty, my friends:
  • Lindsey Graham
  • Tom Coburn
  • John McCain
  • Kelly Ayotte
  • Pat Toomey (joined filibuster on floor afterwards)
  • Bob Corker
  • Ron Johnson  (joined filibuster)
  • Saxby Chambliss (joined filibuster)
  • John Hoeven
  • Dan Coats
  • Richard Burr
  • Mike Johanns.
As with the 'fiscal cliff' deal where the RINOs came out for a public grazing, NOW you know who they are- pretty much a list of what's wrong with this party, don't you think?
