#StandWithRand: Rand Paul Filibuster Update & Open Thread

Filibuster began at 11:47am ET March 6, 2013
Filibuster ended at 12:40am ET March 7, 2013


He quoted Greenwald and even mentioned Luke Rudkowski's question to Gibbs about al-Awlaki's kid.

Now he's saying it's not partisan, and his proof is that he voted for Kerry and Hagel even though he has almost nothing in common with their politics.

This man is playing chess.

Edit to Add: I was inspired to add this quote by the Doctor "Speak up, speak often and don't worry about those that at this point can not understand as they can never un-hear what we tell them." ~ Ron Paul

I think Rubio is a Bush Minion. But his help only helps Rand

And it only helps the Constitution. These people give Rand a break and therefore allow him to be able to talk longer. The more the merrier I say. If the general clueless public are influenced and snowed by some of these "fair-weather constitutionalists" then they will be brought along to think along the lines of liberty and freedom and that Rand is a person they could vote for.

I Believe You're Right....He Will Support Jeb Bush

Rubio is a stinking opportunist..He doesn't give a damn about civil liberties..

posturing and still more posturing

Enough of compromise! It is simple! Burn up the net on this!

It is all about the constitution!

It binds down the elected servants! No trust! No confidence in man!

It is not about even the extreme of 'a Pearl Harbor' or a '911'!

Even they do not trump freedom and liberty as defined by the constitution, and AS GRANTED BY GOD ALMIGHTY!

It is very simple! It is short!

It is called Right to life, liberty, and property!

Instead of when and under what circumstances, it is ONLY about Due Process!

Never forget Rand Paul! You have a mentor of the greatest stature, character, statesmanship, and principle, in Congressional History!

Stand as he did for Truth, Constitutional adherence, Common Law, Oath!

You will never go wrong, never be complicated, never obfuscate, never equivocate!

The people will stand with you!

That is the message for the precincts going forward!

Rubio says, "With THIS administration."

Rand would say "ANY" administration.

Marco is a party guy.

Rubio Admits he Oked Brennan...STUPID!

He's done!

What the hell is Rubio bulls#hitting about?

If too many R's chime in hear - the meaning will be lost

in the R vs D paradigm.

Anybody thin any other D's may chime in or no?

Code Pink

has been outspoken about the use of drones. This is really good...how alliances are built.

If Rubio Wants To Be Relevant...He MUST chime In!!

Rand has attracted both the genuine and not so gunuine members of the Senate...

Go Rand Go!!

Asking Rand to clarify the situation. This is good.

No Marco Rubio...what is YOUR motivation?

Come on, Marco Rubio. We know why you are here.

I think his phones were blowing up, but yes, he doesn't

Rubio showed up...

I would say he has gotten a lot of emails...oh, he needs the spotlight for a while.

Someone want to comment on what Rubio is talking about?

Hey Wyden Remember Kent State

was that an extraordinary circumstance ... a bunch of unarmed college kids? Slaughtered by the military..... hmmm?

I called both of my senators...

one, the dem, is not answering phones cause her office is closed. She is very bad on constituent communications, so no surprise. The other, a Repub, says he supports Rand but has no plans to speak as he is busy with other things...meetings,,etc. I said, well it's filibuster so it could go on a long time, so I would ask him to consider speaking when he is no longer busy. This is not too likely; he isn't very responsive either.

he needs

to shut up.

Beware of these 'hangers on' who want in on publicity...

Beware of Wyden... CFR extraordinaire. He is watering down the principle...

that is: The power to violate the constitution is ULTRA VIRES! They are WITHOUT THE POWER!

'Bind them down by the chains of the constitution! Let us hear nothing of trusting and confidence in men!'

Rand, get these wolves in sheep's clothing off the floor!

He seems like the type trying

He seems like the type trying to ride on the coattails of Rand's popularity of the immediate moment.

I'm wondering if he read the same response by Holder that the rest of us did?

Can someone tell me this?

Ha ha, I know I'm showing my ignorance but when a filibuster is going on, does the person holding the floor have a chance to go potty? ha ha. Or can someone hand them a drink or food? Just curious. LOL
