Majority of U.S. Senators back Obamas ability to Kill American Citizens.

In case you missed what happened yesterday, because it was not covered by the Mainstream Media, Senator Rand Paul led a 12 hour filibuster of CIA Nominee John Brennan, after the White House refused to say they dont have the authority to kill American Citizens on American Soil.
In what should have had 100% support by every member of the Senate, only managed to garner the support of a handful of senators. In fact this morning, the Senate, led by Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham, took to the Senate floor to denounce Rand Pauls demands. Senator McCain said he was doing a disservice to the country.
A disservice to the country?
Since when is standing up for our right to live a disservice to the country? Every last one of these people needs to be voted the hell out of office. The fact that we couldnt even get a majority of the U.S. Senate to agree that the President does not have the authority to Kill American Citizens on American Soil (without a trial), is an absolute travesty of justice. What a sad day it is for America when its even up for debate.
What the hell happened to America? The sad reality of what happened yesterday, on the Floor of the Senate, should send chills through the spines of every red blooded American. Can you believe we have come to a place where its now being debated whether or not the federal government can ignore the Constitution and kill Americans without a trail?
For the last couple of years weve highlighted the drone programs, the effort to disarm America, and how the Department of Homeland Security is stockpiling massive amounts of Ammunition. What some called wild conspiracy theories, dont seem so wild anymore do they?
Senate Refuses to Pass Non-Binding Bill Saying President doesnt have the right to Kill Americans
To bring the Filibuster to a close, Senator Rand Paul offered a non-binding resolution opposing the Presidents ability to kill Americans in drone strikes on US soil. Something that should have received 100% support in the Senate, couldnt even get enough votes to pass. We are living in a country where only a handful of our elected representatives seem to have a problem with our government conducting the targeted killing of American Citizens.
Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, speaking for the majority, was designated to say he objects to Pauls non-binding resolution. The fact that a majority of the U.S. Senate could not even stand together in opposition to something as simple as opposing (in a non-binding resolution) the Presidents ability to assassinate citizens in drone attacks on US soil is simply inexcusable.
This is not a Partisan Issue: Both Sides are to Blame
For those that want to claim this as a partisan issue, I want to remind people that both political parties, Democrats and Republicans, overwhelmingly supported President Obamas ability to kill American Citizens without a trial. In fact, at the same time Rand Paul made his stand to say that,No President has the right to say that he is judge, jury, and executioner, a huge number of Republican Senators decided to ignore what was going on in the Senate, and instead attended a swanky dinner with President Obama.
