    Something based on Panetta's statement and Paul's response?
    Don't let others get you down. Not naysayers, not pretenders, not appeasers, not opportunists; none of em.

    What others do pales beside what YOU do.

    Press on! - The r3VOLution continues...

    "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."

    Bring up Oathkeeprs and ask if he would refuse to transmit an unconstitutional order.
    Out of every one hundred men they send us, ten should not even be here. Eighty will do nothing but serve as targets for the enemy. Nine are real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, upon them depends our success in battle. But one, ah the one, he is a real warrior, and he will bring the others back from battle alive.

    Duty is the most sublime word in the English language. Do your duty in all things. You can not do more than your duty. You should never wish to do less than your duty.

    It's over, and I didn't get a chance to ask a question, but here are some things he answered.

    How we can undergo sequestration while at the same time being ready to take action in Syria and Iran and elsewhere.

    What kind of treatment Bradley Manning is receiving and whether or not he is a political prisoner.

    The effects of budget cuts on military retirement.

    The future of cyber warfare in light of the budget.

    How the budget will affect naval assets, specifically submarines.

    What would be the triggers and preconditions for military action in Syria or elsewhere.

    Is it necessary to get Congressional approval for war as the Constitution says, or is UN approval more important. The questioner threw in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution, the 1973 Presidential War Powers Act, and his recent appearance alongside Secretary Panetta in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

    The last question was the only one that got applause by the way.
