At the opening of CPAC 2013, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) picked up where he left off in his 13 hour filibuster last week. Paul took off the gloves and went after Barack Obama on indefinite detention, defending the Constitution, and unlawfully killing American citizens. He also spoke on debt and foolish and frivolous spending and when he touched on foreign aid he said, “I say not one penny more to countries that are burning our flag.”
As he took to the stage with his folders from last week’s filibuster he joked that he was only given twenty minutes, but brought thirteen hours of information.
When he began, he said that there was a message that he wanted to deliver to Obama. However, one person in the crowd yelled out, “Don’t drone me, bro!” Both Paul and the crowd laughed as he said, “that’s not exactly what I was thinking. However, I think he may have distilled my 13-hour speech into three words.” Yes, I know it was technically four, but the point was made.
He did take time to speak on drones and the fact that Obama was not a protector of civil liberties, pointing specifically to his signing into law the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows him to indefinitely detain any and all people he deems to be terrorists, associated with terrorists or potential terrorists. This unlawful law also grants him the ability to do this without due process for the accused.
