Only 8 Dems that signed this? no RepubliCAN's?

just saw this the other day and was wondering if anyone on here knows why there are only 8 Dems that signed this letter to the White House about Drones and no Republican signatures

As Ron Paul stated, we need to be building 'friendships', taken with a grain of salt considering NOBODY raised this prior to Rand, and more than likely are trying to preserve their jobs acting like they are 'concernced' about their constituents.

Whaz'up cuddy?

I don't exactly get what you mean by "this"

If you're talking about drones specifically or exclusively then
maybe Rand is first.

But it's not like some Democrats haven't been concerned with
or attempting to deal with the out of control surveillance state
and imperial presidency. Check this from a year ago, for example:

Are RepubliCANs REALLY on board?

Yes, other democrats have been concerned, including Dennis Kucinich who spoke very bluntly about it on numerous occasions [ http://www.examiner.com/article/american-drones-have-killed-... ].

The point that I was making was to reiterate the OP, and the article:

"When Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) led a filibuster last week against the administration’s lack of answers on its use of targeted assassinations, many wondered why Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) was the only Democrat to show his support. While many on the left (and the right) have dismissed Sen. Paul and his drone filibuster pals as stoking the fears of “right-wing conspiracy nuts” and playing to a largely anti-Obama crowd, it turns out that Democrats are leading the House fight for clarity on the drone strike program."

So, where are the RepubliCANs? I have NOT seen them coming out in droves.
