Why would Obama need the option to use drone strikes against US citizens, in the US, without due process of law?

Thanks the Lord for great patriotic American Senator Rand Paul who stood up for the US Constitution that is trashed on a daily basis by the socialistic drone dictator Obama and his liberal deceitful media that cover up his anti-America executive orders against the American people. Senator Rand Paul was the pride of most of the American people when he stand up for the American people during more than 12 hours against the new drone dictator Obama who gave himself the authority to kill any American that he believes need to be killed with no trial or day in court. The GOP must prevent President Obama from acting like the king of America who can kill Americans without finding them guilty in court of law. Obama drone attacks in Pakistan killed more than 300 civilians and others that nobody knows their names in the name of failed Obama drone security. Why would Obama be allowed to kill Americans and deny their basic human rights to get fair trial in court of law? Where are GOP leaders that must stand up to the new dictator Obama and his drones?

I heard someone say that Rand Paul is not qualified to be in the Senate because he's mediocre. But, I say that is why he IS qualified to be in the Senate.

The fat cat GOP'ers have a vested interest in this program. The bribes, err campaign contributions they receive come from the defense industry.
Its a win win situation for both the Democrats and Republicans. The only losers in this equation are the American citizens.

Actually, tuned in to CSpan to see and hear what Paul had to say.

Wonder what the numbers were for his filibuster.

Agree with Paul.

If the prisoners at Guantanamo get their rights; then so should an AMERICAN CITIZEN!

and any chance that innocent people could possibly be killed as collateral damage is just PLAIN WRONG!

President Obama = HYPOCRITE!

I would like to point something out here.

While Paul with guest speakers Rubio (R) and Wyden (D) were conducting this filibuster.

Senators Graham and McLame were having a very posh dinner with Obama.

So let's ask the question, who is sticking up for the people's civil liberties and constitutionally protected rights?

Pulling a "Mr. Smith" was stupid, but we are talking about a wing nut airhead.

He was grandstanding and didn't really say anything of substance...he wants the repub nomination, nothing more.

Pathetic.

Thank you Rand Paul.

90% of the scum in Washington DC need to be reminded how this whole Constitution thing works.
