Demand an Apology from Senator McCain

Obama and McCain1.jpgWhile 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 taken seriously he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms."

These comments are rude and out of line. Senator McCain should apologize for insulting tens of millions of Americans who rightly assert that they cannot be killed by the President.

The U.S. government has zero constitutional authority to kill a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil without a trial or due process. That’s plain and simple.

Sign the petition telling Senator McCain to apologize to Rand Paul and his supporters for his inappropriate comments!
