Explaining Ron Paul's position on the assassination of Al-Awlaki to Tea Partiers

Here's how I've tried to frame the argument when talking to fellow Tea Partiers:

We should be terrified for the day Barack Obama declares the Tea Party a terrorist organization and sends a Predator Drone to neutralize the radicalizing forces here in America...

Prominent Tea Partiers may very well be at the top of Barack Obama's list... and this killing of an America-hating American sets a dangerous precedent by saying the Obama administration can kill Americans if they think they're a radical terrorist.

Come you masters of war

Come you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks.

You that never done nothin'
But build to destroy
You play with my world
Like it's your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
And you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther
When the fast bullets fly.

Like Judas of old
You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain

Help Dr. Paul with "Assassination & Due Process" explanations!

New member post! Please help me with this idea, to help Dr. Paul contexturalize the assault on due process and the Bill of Rights represented by the assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki:

I sent the letter below to Dr. Paul's congressional site, please refine or add to this idea and tweet, FB or email him with ideas, because the majority of comments on MSM articles out there seem to uphold Obama's high crime of the murder of a citizen without due process under the law...they don't understand the ramifications of this henious action! Here's my email:

Dr. Paul & Staff,

US expanding its drone bases in Africa and Arabian Peninsula

WASHINGTON: Encouraged by the phenomenal success of drone strikes in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the US is expanding its bases in other regions in particular Africa and Arabian Peninsula for unmanned aerial vehicles, whose precise striking capabilities have proven to be devastating for the terrorist, media reports said.

"One of the installations is being established in Ethiopia, a US ally in the fight against al-Shabab, the Somali militant group that controls much of that country," The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

Drones Evolve Into Weapon in Age of Terror

The Sept. 11 attacks triggered a revolution in U.S. spycraft as the intelligence services shattered a longstanding taboo by launching an expansive program of targeted killings by remote control. The greatest shift both in tactics and mindset has been the embrace of the pilotless, hunter-killer aircraft known as drones.

The CIA, which doesn't formally acknowledge the covert program, has killed about 2,000 militants with drones, U.S. officials say, most in the past two years as President Barack Obama's national security team aggressively expanded the program.
