Considering the grave seriousness of the issue at hand

I found this article's levity and condescension utterly tasteless and even repulsive.

The issues of when to use remote-control warfare, what boundaries we should have for fighting terrorism and domestic surveillance, when the government can use lethal force against American citizens, and what constitutes due process are complicated and filled with ample grey areas.

No, not at all, it's very black and white: the President should not be able to murder whomever he wants.

But Paul can look like at least a minor hero to so many people because of the one big idea uniting the motley #StandWithRand crew: We should really be having this conversation in the U.S., now, publicly, before (probably non-lethal) drones above our heads become just another part of this American life.

Minor hero? To some people? Who are motley?

F U, yahoo.
