Mr. Paul Goes to Washington

Posted by : Brian | On : March 7, 2013

History is happening. Are you watching?

At this very moment, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is conducting a traditional (aka “talking”) filibuster on the Senate floor. At the time of writing this. he has had the Senate floor for 10 hours and 43 minutes. For up to the minute information on how long he’s been going, check this site.

The premise of the filibuster is the recent admission from Attorney General Eric Holder that the President has the authority to carry out drone strikes on American citizens on U.S. soil, without any trial.
If you remember your constitution, the 5th amendment clearly states that Americans can not “…be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law…”
This is what we call “assassination.” Do you believe that the President has the authority to assassinate Americans on U.S. soil?
