Nobody at my work even knew it occurred which really made me sad.

 

Finally someone in washington standing up for what they believe in (literally) without just accepting some $1,000,000 "donation" to shut his mouth.

 

Standing up for our liberties freedoms and rights is something I think we can all get behind.

Rand Paul made his point - good for him!!!!!!!!!!

Does Obama really think it is Ok to kill Americans on U.S. soil without a trial?

Previous words out of his mouth would say 'Yes'.

I didn't watch it, but i did read about it last night. Watching any politician talk for very long bores me stiff.

Didn't watch but have been keeping up with it on the news.  I try not to get too caught up in "conspiracy" theories, but the lack of a solid answer on the drone question has really disturbed me.  Here we are living in a country trying to disarm law abiding citizens while at the same time "hinting" that it might be acceptable for the government to use spy drones to conduct strategic assassinations (murders) of American citizens, on American soil, without due process...............  hmm makes me wonder.

Well, if you had an AR "assault" rifle you could go postal I guess.................

 

Oh wait, you don't have an assault rifle - you'll have to throw stones at the drones  :)

I don't think anyone would have watched it for what he said, you are right he probably didn't say anything worth listening to, its the fact that he said it. Like the OP said he stood up for what he believed in, and that is what we are applauding, not 13 hours of waffle.

I'm sorry but, people watch those things? You'd be better off watching any of the local debates going on in your region to keep tabs on all of the local offices you should be voting for if you want to have your time well spent monitoring any government meeting.

 

Just remember people, you make or break your government by voting or not voting for local offices first, too many people focus on senators, representatives and Presidential elections instead making sure up and comers who will be senator, rep's and pre's one day actually deserve the chance to even have a shot at that office.
