Senator Rand Paul Teaming up with GOA To Preserve the Filibuster

From Gun Owners of America page...Reid talking about nuking the filibuster....John McCain working with Carl Levin to make a Senate rule change that only McConnell (Minority Leader) or John McCain (Floor Manager) can offer amendments, no one else.

"We are currently working with Senator Rand Paul, who is planning to offer a GOA-originated amendment requiring a two-thirds vote in the Senate before any anti-gun measure can be passed." Scroll down about halfway on the page to read the Rand stuff.

NO WAY!!!

The 2nd amendment is NOT on the table for 2/3 vote or 99% vote!

They (Randy Paul or anyone else) just DON'T get it!

Where the hell does ANYBODY see THIS as ANY type of victory?

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

I know... why aren't they

I know... why aren't they standing up and asserting that any law which is passed is invalid upon its passing?

I remember that Rand thinks that a law is a law until the SC over-turns it - this is not true.

CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW.

PEACE and LIBERTY

Go hand in hand, we have to use peaceful means to achieve our goals,non compliance, just talking to a stranger, cop, or friend and speaking your voice can make such a difference, if it comes down to them using force on us, then they've lost,

for the first in history we are witnessing a global consciousness change of minds, for the better, 100 years of this establishment being here, and we have started changing it in a matter of couple years, I can see why the good doctor is so optimistic, were wining .

how do you know that you starting a chat to a person on the street or bus about GMO foods won't result in him/her telling her boss who is in charge of journalism to write an article about effects of GMO after your conversation?, creativity is the ultimate weapon, just use the old noggin and youll find out

So gun bans are ok as long as

So gun bans are ok as long as 2/3rds of congress say its ok? I'm pretty sure the second amendment does not say, "Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts.

Rand Paul 2016

If Obama starts acting like a dictator by way of executive orders, etc it will be to his own demise.

He already has a reputation for not respecting the law. A lawless president is nothing more than a dictator.

When he dictates law through executive order he will damage his own image even among his own base.

I say bring it on. Let him show his true colors.

.

executive Order doesn't mean crap

but the Filibuster is of ultimate importance.

For all those who want to

For all those who want to bash Rand, I think it should be remembered that he appears to be working within the system to achieve results. He may or may not be most effective, but I have little doubt that he is in his father's camp and we should all weigh his actions from that point of view.

thank you!!

..for your sane point...

We will continue to work within the system, with great fervor; and although we will all feel the pain of frustration draining us, we will NOT stop attempting to "add virtue and excellence" in hopes of restoring our Republic by tearing from power and place those who thrive by doing the public wrong!

1776 will NOT commence(Alex!), until all peaceful and professional and principled avenues have TRULY been exhausted...if Ron Paul has faith that the free-est Americans will do right when presented with both the evidence of our decline, the picture of the consequences of compromising in the area of morals, and given a CLEAR choice to go in the opposite way from continued cronyism BACK to Statesmanship; than so do I!!!

THANK YOU RAND.... You know

THANK YOU RAND.... You know that this legislation is all about the gun ban. McCain is a liberal. he would love to see guns gone. Rand needs our support.

BUMP...

... it seems like Rand is involved w/ EVERYTHING going on in the Senate. God Bless him.

I know, right?

...don't know where he finds the time.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

it's interesting that in

it's interesting that in mexico guns are outlawed entirely, but the private cartels have no problem obtaining them, any kind they want. likewise a truly revolutionary movement should never have a problem obtaining the guns it needs, legal or illegal, if it has somewhat broad support and is capable. the only victims of gun control are the isolated law biding citizen, whos defenselessness empowers the criminal, armed or unarmed. i have to imagine on some level obama and his pets get an inner satisfaction at the thought of defenseless law biding people fleeing criminals into an ever shrinking perimeter of safe places, increasingly unaffordable.

that's good

but... there should be no talk, ever, of infringing on the rights of the people to keep and bear arms... 2/3 vote or not. it is unlawful for them to do, even 100% of them wanted it...

"the right of The People to keep and bear shall not be infringed."

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

Senate, House, or President...

It's time to back off and re-read the Constitution; it was written at a level for a 9th grader at the time to clearly understand the text.
