Rand Paul Filibuster

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) filibustered for about a day to hold up a confirmation.  Rand was demanding clarification about use of drones in USA airspace to kill people.  What may come as a surprise to some alleged conservatives, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) criticized Rand on the issue of killing people on American soil without a trial.

Rand;s response to big-government Republicans McCain and Graham, "They think the whole world is a battlefield, including America, and that the laws of war should apply..."  Read more quotes and a TV interview here.

GOP operatives should not ignore the split in the Republican party on a couple issues:
killing suspects on American soil without due process;
amnesty for illegals (foreign invaders).
