    Funny. Tell that to the thousands of civilians struck by drones.
    Ohwait, you can't.
    They are dead.
    Obama used more drones in the 1st year then Bush did in 8 years.
    Double taps resquers and funerals.
    And is using them in over 8 countries.
    Has been building bases in Africa for the drones to take off from.
    Do you think that is for peace?  
    Amazing comment.

    Passing a law that the Constitution doesn't allow does not negate the Constitution, it negates the law that was passed. Secret courts can't make up secret laws. SORRY FOR THE TYPOS :)

      What the drone attacks have to do with war I cannot fathom. They have occurred in countries in which the government has assented to them. Do you think we would be flying drones into Pakistan without that government's explicit agreement? You know that Pakistan has 80 nuclear weapons, right?

      Pakistan and Yemen among others know that the United States has the ability to strike a common enemy, as well as the ability to do it without the usual loss of friendly forces and civilian casualties.  

      Rand Paul is to civil liberties as the Disney Channel is to subtle and nuanced acting.

        a peacemonger?  If that is what you believe, do you think we should escalate the "War on Terror?"  

        Terrorists love to see their targets respond with military force far more...it validates their world perspective and allows them to recruit more to their cause.

        "[I]n the absence of genuine leadership, they'll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone...They're so thirsty for it they'll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there's no water, they'll drink the sand."
