    I give him credit. This really is a watershed moment for our movement. I don't think any Ron speech on the House floor get this much attention. I also like how Rand is exposing the hypocrisy of both sides.

    Rand is geeting some serious mainstream play here, CSPANs twitter tweeted out a link, Chuck Todd is retweeting. Mike Vie... someones comments, and this story lead NPRs top of the hour news, NPR even went as far as to report on the letter Holder sent, saying that the letter denied any intent to use the drones in the US, but could "imagine" a scenario where it could happen.

    Can we get a pizza bomb going for Rand and his assistants, ala Oklahoma GOP State Convention. This could be end up going until they have to move it to the parking lot.

    Interesting observation, there are a few comments on both Twitter and the Huffington Post article that go along the lines of people saying they disagree with Rand Paul on a lot of issues, but agree that the executive branch should not have as much power as it does with the drone policy and the NDAA. This sounds like it'd be a good starting or jumping off point on the war of ideas. Even if someone is a hardcore Democrat or liberal, maybe see what they believe on the drone policy and/or the NDAA.

    It's like that one video, name escapes me now, where a man went around telling people about positions that Mitt Romney believed, but at the end, he told them, to their surprise, that it was actually Barack Obama who held those viewpoints. Maybe something like that. Test the waters and see where people stand on these issues. The same could apply to those fighting battles in local, county and state GOP. Find common ground instead of saying that the overall goal should be to put a Republican in the White House.

    How one goes about accomplishing this is another thing.

    Side-note, it's also interesting to note the people on Twitter who are asking Rubio to join Paul on the Senate floor now.

    Hope he can keep going until tonight with all the cable shows tuning in and covering it... that would be awesome. Millions will see that.

    Ha! I just called both Indiana senators. I asked Senator Coate's aide whether bombing Americans on American soil was a Democrat or Republican position. When the aide started saying, "um... um..." I suggested that if it was NOT a Republican position, Senator Coates needs to get out there and support Rand Paul's filibuster.

    Senator Donnelly (a Democrat) is apparently not answering his phones. My calls to him went straight to voice mail, ha!

    Everyone - this is a GREAT chance to get some publicity in the area of domestic drone use. KEEP UP THE HEAT! PLEASE!!!

    Senator Richard Burr's (North Carolina) office is saying that Burr doesn't believe that it's okay to drone strike Americans without charge or trial, but that he doesn't think Brennan thinks it's okay, either.

    Rand has ~6,300 likes on the comment he posted an hour ago about the filibuster. His facebook page is benefiting greatly from this. This also seems to be impressing a lot of the Rand doubters quite a bit. So much awesomeness.

    That's the one. Also, interesting tweet:

    "#RandPaul worries about Civil Liberties, except of course for infringing on women's reproductive rights and trying to ban same-sex marriage."

    This is what I'm talking about when I say votes like that will come back to bite not just Paul, but the GOP in this continuing 'war on women' bit people talk about. Regardless of his reason, that it's called the 'Violence Against Women Act' and that he voted no portrays him as anti-women in the eyes of not just Democrats, but an overwhelmingly majority of women who would vote Democrat. Similar can be said for marriage, though Ron Paul said at GW this week that people should be able to do whatever they like as long as they don't force it on people and it's left to the states. He should adop that view.It'd definitely work well with pro same-sex marriage crowds if Paul basically said the government should have no business in their persona affairs.

    somebody else shuffling around in front of Rand.

    Everyone! PLEASE look up your senators and call. It takes just a few minutes. You don't have to be eloquent, you don't have to make a speech. In fact, the people who answer these calls DON'T CARE about eloquence - they simply put a tic mark in a "FOR" or "AGAINST" column.

    Just be clear: "I want to urge senator XXXXX to support Rand Paul's filibuster of the Brennan nomination. I would like to hear the answers Rand Paul is trying to get with this filibuster. Thank you."

    Use the links above to find your senator, or simply call the Senate switchboard at:

    (202) 224-3121

    Just tell the operator what state you live in, and they'll transfer you to the appropriate senators.

    This CAN make a difference!

    This is great. Rand may go through the entire Bill of Rights!

    'Oh, that's right, you're not allowed to smoke cigarettes anymore.'

    Rand Paul is doing a great job, hopefully we get a tube up. I missed the beginning.

    With the weather there, he could have loads of fun with quorum calls.
    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.
