While Senator Rand Paul was
filibustering John Brennan’s nomination for CIA Director
over the Obama Administration’s implicit assertion that it can kill American citizens
on American soil without charge or trial, Senator John McCain was
schmoozing with President Obama over dinner.
Millions of people, from all
political backgrounds, showed support for Rand Paul’s courageous filibuster on
social media. Rand Paul was eventually joined by 14 senators, including Sens. Lee, Cruz, Toomey, and Democratic
Sen. Ron Wyden.
Instead of joining this important filibuster, Senator McCain mocked Rand Paul
and made condescending statements towards libertarian young people. "If Mr. Paul wants to be

U.S. soil without a trial or due process. That’s plain and simple.
