United Liberty: "Rand Paul's New Friends"Submitted by JO4RP on Sun, 03/10/2013 - 18:08
So did they show up out of a change of conscience? Or because #StandWithRand was the #1 trend on Twitter? I would venture to guess fewer of these Senators would have stood with Rand had he drawn his line in the sand over Americans killed on foreign soil, such as Al-Awlaki’s 16-year old son, and even less would have been there had he addressed the 4,700 or so innocent foreign noncombatants killed arbitrarily by drones.
But this is admittedly an incremental victory. It will get harder for those Senators who came out to stand with Rand, who may go squishy when challenged by the establishment, with which they are more comfortable. At present time, Rand Paul seems most apt at carrying this message and facilitating change within the establishment.
