Senator Rand Paul has launched a filibuster that has gone into its 8th hour at this time. He has said that he “will speak until he can no longer speak.”
Many on both sides are standing with him during this filibuster. This is being done in order to block the vote for CIA Director John Brennan from being nominated.
Time will tell when he will finally stop. And it’s not about standing and talking for hours upon hours. It’s about principles. Drone strikes on Americans? Without a trial? A trial in which they could defend themselves?
The Constitutionality of this act is what it is all about! So, praises for Rand Paul. Because, at the base for his argument is the 5th Amendment and due process.
