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

May the God of our Founders give this statesman strength. The time is ripe. The time is NOW!

Ron Paul has made a great shift in history!

We are seeing this unfold right now!

Call your Senate offices now! Spread the message by any and all means!
Flood American Senators with calls to support Rand!

Let them hear from us now. Faithful Ron Paul supporters can make their existence known once again regardless of differences, as we have a good filibuster for liberty going now in the Senate! Let Rand know he is being supported!

If not us, who?

If not now, when?

If not for this, for what?

"Slow down, Rand. Slow down." Didnt'cha see Strom Thurmond filibuster something? The man spoke like a snail, droning [sic] on and on with a good second or two between each word, knowing full well he would be there for the next 24 hours. No waving hands, no nothing. So. Best of luck to ya. God give you strength.

Filibusters are rare to see these days

Glad to see that Rand is the one doing this. I hope that Cruz and Lee will join in and give him a breather.

Thanks for posting. I took my post down.

Done. This is what I

Done. This is what I wrote.

Please support Rand Paul in his filibuster for John Brennan for CIA director. Rand Paul is right on questioning our governments balance of power to assassinate Americans without due process. This is bi partisan and a matter of protecting the American people.

He got in the "if they ask for a lawyer, tell them to shut up"

Graham comment - he's sizzlin hot today!

He just mentioned Luke Rudkowski's question to Gibbs about al-Awlaki's kid for the second time. I think it's safe to say he reads the DP.

woot

It has been good so far. I only give Rand an 70% approval rating overall still.. But this is a moment that I am truly proud of Rand Paul. Now we need to get oblivious Americans to flip out about it. Will it happen?
