    You're obviously a left-wing partisan, defending the 'inevitable' Hillary Clinton. How much do they pay shills these days, minimum wage?

    That's what you got from what I wrote?? What a dupe!
    I won't vote for Hillary unless she manages to win the nomination. And to be honest, I hope Sanders makes a better showing than the pundits have so far given him credit for.

    As to the other charge, considering the Republican field this year, I am proud to be a left-wing partisan. Although I happen to agree with Paul's record on personal privacy, I find that we don't see things the same way in any other issue. I may be partisan, but it's informed partisanship based on issues and not on ideology alone.

    I suppose next he'll tell us he's not trying to take guns, but he wants to ban assault rifles, and that raising the debt doesn't increase the debt.

    Although this a Rand Paul topic...

    Bernie on guns
    Bernie on the deficit

    And before you trot out more things you don't know, here's Bernie's entire voting record throughout his career.

    My apologies to the OP.

    Watched some of it on CSPAN, up til when the guys from Oregon interupted for a question (then prattled on for days not getting around to a question presumedly giving Paul a chance to go potty or whatever.) :)

    Rand can't leave the floor, but it was certainly to give him a rest.

    How it used to be rules-wise. All I know about it now is it's changed radically from how it was injust the 90s.

    Was leaning, pausing for exorbitant amounts of time, both used to be breaches of filibuster rules. Dunno what they are now.

    "Those who would sacrifice Liberty for a little security deserve neither" - Benjamin Franklin

    The "Patriot" act is nothing more than an end run around the Constitution. I said it when that idiot Bush came up with it - and I say it now. Allowing the government to "watch" its' people is nothing more than giving them permission to be the Soviet Union.
