#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 am a voluntaryist... and its my post telling everyone to call their reps. We are finally unifying and you are tearing us down. Sorry, to questions someone with no political experience, only in office for 2 years, and questionable tactics.

Where's your big tent?

Come on for real.

I guess he's pitching a tent?

Sorry, I'm on a niacin rush today. I couldn't resist.

I am not sure being fair is the concern

the vulgarity maybe though.

We need Warren to get in there

Mr. Nystrom agreed. How about

Mr. Nystrom agreed. How about Senator Ron WydenD-OR?

Yes Wyden, too

That would be huge. He helped Rand in getting this information.

I would expect nothing less of him.

What other Senators do you think would join?

Rubio? Ha ha - he'll go along if enough others do. He sniffs the wind.
McConnel? Same as Rubio
McCain? That guy is unpredictable, but you'd expect him to back Rand's position

Our other senator is some lackey that the Governor appointed to keep the seat warm until the next election, after Kerry got bumped up to head of State.

If that guy came out! Wow. That would be a statement. Like a placeholder citizen coming to life. I'm not that naive. But I expect some on the left to come forward.

How can they not. BTW - Crickets over at the Daily Kos.

    That is helpful. They're having a little conversation about it.
