Tonight Senator Rand Paul is filibustering on the Senate floor to bring national focus to the Obama administration’s policy that claims the executive right to kill American citizens on US soil without trial and without proof. The policy makes one person — the president — accuser, judge and jury.
I don’t know how many Americans are paying attention to this filibuster. I don’t know how many American are paying attention to this extreme out-of-balance change in power that is occurring in our nation.
Rand Paul doesn’t think he will be able to put a stop to this presidential policy from his single protest, but I hope that America responds by understanding that this path is an evil and dangerous one. I hope that America rises up and says “no” to this policy — a policy which by the constitutional definition of justice, is unjust. Americans have the right to due process.
He said that he will speak until he cannot speak anymore. Thank you Senator Paul.
