Leave it to the Obama Administration to make a man like Rand Paul into a hero. Senator Paul’s filibuster to force the Obama Administration to declare that American citizens will not be assassinated while sitting in their living room in the U.S. was a remarkable, if not embarrassing, moment in our history. Senator Paul, known for his father and profoundly ignorant comments, chose to personally put himself on the line in an old fashion filibuster, standing for 13 hours without even a restroom break… to do the right thing. A man who is rightly reviled by many (even many Republicans) as the poster boy for the anti-science, know-nothing Tea Party beliefs, chose to do the right, even heroic thing (and God, how it pains me to admit this) by challenging the attempt of the Obama Administration to nullify the due process provisions of the Constitution. Is there any doubt that without Sen. Paul’s one man stand the unwritten policy of the United States would have been that drone attacks on citizens in the United States without any trial would be permissible? Where were Senators Stabenow and Levin? Still supporting the “War on Terror” at any costs, including our liberties? Is this Bizzaro World?
No, just Washington D.C., and a government that has lost its way, along with a moral compass.
