#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

Who is this schmuck? (Sen, AZ)

lol...sorry, I must be getting punchy.

It's Jeff Flake.

An arm of the Kochtopus.

The fake, Jeff Flake, is up at bat.

The one who liked to wrap himself in the flag of liberty is up. Can't let Rand have the spotlight.

Flake is no friend.

Honored...

...to be here with all of you during this historic time.

May the real Spirit if God find the hearts of all these men and women of the Senate. We are seeing the true Americans and the traitors in action. Who will ring the bell of liberty the loudest?

Just say an American will!

GO RAND !!

GO RAND !!

Oops ... Rand did not renew his claim to not giving up the floor

On this last yield Rand just yielded the floor for a question! He did not retain right to the floor!

He better be careful or they will trap him into giving up the floor!

This is why I don't like all of the back and forth

this is not a "normal debate," everyone needs to go to bed and rand needs to pull out a phone book!

The eyes of God...

...see these things.

The eyes of evil will not.

Looks like all the groupies

Looks like all the groupies are surrounding the rock star! These Senators are just opportunists. What's that saying about it costing nothing to be a patriot at a late hour?

LOL... Johnson's question was "what was the question"?
Poor Rand, his voice is sounding raw.

It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. – Mark Twain

Exactly.

Where do they dig some of these guys up?

Johnson is sounding like a beauty queen...

Where has he been? Huh?

What are we doing here? Diliberative body? Give me a summary of where we are Rand?

Is this fellow for real?

I feel sorry for you Rand. To have to answer these questions from idiot panderers!

If I hear

"As I understand it" one more time, I'm going to puke. Even an idiot like me gets it.

They get it

What they're doing is just keeping talking and re-asking to give Rand a break. They're helping... a bit.

Eric Hoffer

They have to ask a question

As that is the way they are able to ask Rand to yield some time.

Thank you fellow DPers!

I've thoroughly enjoyed watching Rand's amazing speech all day. It has been incredible watching this historic event unfold.

What has made this event even better has been riding shotgun with the great DP folks all day; watching this together (in some sense anyway) via reading the comments as they are posted live throughout the day as the session continues.

So thanks to Michael and all DPers. I've been glued to both C-SPAN2 AND Daily Paul all day. It would not have been the same at all without DP. There has been a lot of bad news on the liberty front lately - this freedom filibuster has been so refreshing!
