” While Senator Rand Paul was filibustering John Brennan’s nomination for CIA Director over the Obama Administration’s implicit assertion that it can kill American citizens on American soil without charge or trial, Senator John McCain was schmoozing with President Obama over dinner.
Millions of people, from all political backgrounds, showed support for Rand Paul’s courageous filibuster on social media. Rand Paul was eventually joined by 14 senators, including Sens. Lee, Cruz, Toomey, and Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden.
Instead of joining this important filibuster, Senator McCain mocked Rand Paul and made condescending statements towards libertarian young people. “If Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms.” ”
At the link you can send a message to McCain and express your dissatisfaction with his derogatory remarks regarding Senator Paul’s principled stand against tyranny and statism . Principle being something that 40 years inside the cloistered environment of Washington seems to have wrung out of the honorable man that survived the Hanoi Hilton .
Below is the text of the form letter … read it , if you agree with it give it your blessing and send it on . Senator Paul , although doomed to fail in preventing the vote on Brennan to take place , took a bold stand and showed the entire country just what leadership really is .
The text :
” Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster on the Senate floor was not a political stunt to “fire up impressionable libertarian kids.” I am a full grown adult and I agree with Sen. Paul that the President of the United States does not have the authority to assassinate American citizens on American soil without due process.
Your criticism of Sen. Paul’s brave filibuster is shameful. No American statesman would support the assassination of an American without proper due process. The President can’t just suspend the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Our founding fathers would not approve of President Obama’s unprecedented authority grab and neither should you.
While Senator Paul stood for liberty and the rights of all Americans, you dined with the President. I demand you apologize to the millions of Americans who support our right to not be killed by the President.”
