Ooohh... dont want to debate the constitution in the senate?? wtf

What is wrong with america? Can the politicians not see what is slowly happening, all while they just get rich and sit back and let it happen...

Why cant we the people decide if we want this or not? Im sure if it went to a vote to all citizens, it would easily get repealed...

Sounds like an incident in the 1800s when Charles Sumner was attacked by a another Senator (forgot his name)

So if you oppose the Patriot act, or uphold the constitution as Rand Paul did, you are considered a terrorist?

This propaganda has got to stop!

S and F!

Absolutely fascinating.

I don't even know what to say. Honestly.

The interview starts at 1:05. Just start there-

Sad and Anger is racing through me right now.

People, you better get ready to fight- with who?
Watch the video and you tell me.

If you think the US has been anything resembling the "concept" proposed by the founding fathers as taught in public schools today... then you haven't understood the history of the US since the late 1700's. The US as a true republic the citizens could depend upon was lost the moment the Declaration of Independence was signed.

Namaste for all my brothers and sisters seeking sanctuary.

The actions of the Paul's is beautiful in many ways... but is just the first major step in the awakening of the American and ultimately Terran consciousness as to what has been going on around us for millennia.

Namaste.

If 9-11 was a inside job. then the patriot act would be an asolute necessity to stop people from getting caught.

I can't stand Fox News, disagree with a great majority of what Rand Paul believes (I am neither a Conservative nor a Liberal), but on this I must say BRAVO Mr Paul!! BRAVO Judge!!

It's the comments from the Paul Ryan's on the Hill that completely tick me off, "We were sent here to be leaders." Umm, incorrect sir, you all were sent to the Hill to REPRESENT us, the President is sent to be the leader (I agree, the current one is an epic fail in that department).

At least Rand Paul gets it, you're there to represent the will of the people and to uphold the Constitution, and for that sir you do get my respect!!

So in light of what was said.. denying the fighting against the Patriot Act is in fact a fight to allow allow weapons (with respect to guns) to fall into the hands of terrorists. Yet with the Patriot Act in full function weapons have still fallen into the hands of terrorists and thereby resulted in the noted death of a federal agent.

Is this where I nod my head or is this where I tip my hat?

I am disgusted with our Congress and President. Adolph Bush and his Nazis got the Patriot Act passed under the banner of "protecting freedom". Now High Potentate Obama and HIS fascist regime are perpetuating it. America's freedoms have never been in more danger of becoming extinct, and our President sits there with that goofy "gotcha!" grin.

Got this from the Washington Post, has a vid of Mr Paul debating the act.
Harry Reid, Rand Paul spar over Patriot Act on Senate floor


“Can we not have a debate on a higher plane, a debate over whether or not there should be some constitutional protections?” Paul asked.

“Do we want a lawless land?” he added. “Do we want a land, a government without so much restraint that at any time they can come into your house? We were very worried about that. That’s why our country was founded on principles such as the Fourth Amendment.”


And just to be fair, Sen Tom Udall (D-NM) had this to say

“This is not a Patriot Act,” Udall said. “Patriots stand up for the Constitution. Patriots stand up for freedom and liberty that’s embodied in the Constitution. And I think true patriots, when they’re public servants, public servants stand up and do what’s right, even if it’s unpopular.”

UnitedStates has been usurped by the unFed act of 1913 and the law that never was.
thelawthatneverwas.com...

the 16th and 17th amendments were never ratified.
www.devvy.com...

they have taken us of the gold standard.
they have deliberately turned the U.S into a debtor nation.
they use the U.S. citizen as a goat to fund that which enslaves them / kills them.
they stand behind the potus and yank the strings.
they have stolen from the people of the earth - not just the U.S.
they are the worst mansion trash of the lowest order -illuminNUTS!
Kissinger is their boy.

'the Committee of 300' John D. Coleman (also on you tube).

"(j) The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section

43 of the Act of May 12, 1933, as amended (31 U.S.C. 821 (b)), to issue
silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver
dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of any outstanding
silver certificates, to prescribe the denominations of such silver
certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver
currency for their redemption," and
(b) By revoking subparagraphs (b) and (c) of paragraph 2 thereof.
SECTION 2. The amendment made by this Order shall not affect any act done,
or any right accruing or accrued or any suit or proceeding had or commenced
in any civil or criminal cause prior to the date of this Order but all such
liabilities shall continue and may be enforced as if said amendments had not
been made.
JFK was replacing the monetary system w/non interest bearing real United States Notes (replacing the unFederal Notes of the illuminuthin).
On June 4, 1963, a little known attempt was made to strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the government at interest. On that day President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order No. 11110 that returned to the U.S. government the power to issue currency, without going through the Federal Reserve. Mr. Kennedy's order gave the Treasury the power "to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury." This meant that for every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury's vault, the government could introduce new money into circulation. In all, Kennedy brought nearly $4.3 billion in U.S. notes into circulation. The ramifications of this bill are enormous.

All this while the media focuses on natural disasters, Libya, Yemen, Israel, and now.. soon to come... a focus on the Sudan.

It's simply amazing what the media fails to cover. It's almost as if they were told to keep the blinders on....

If the 17th amendment were to be repealed, as it should be, the power to elect US Senators would fall back to the state legislatures as intended by the founders, but thanks to Woodrow Wilson, the passing of the 17th amendment destroyed state sovereignty. If there were no 17th amendment individual states could recall their US Senators for voting for this, but are instead helpless to defend against it.

Out of curiosity, are we allowed to be present in the room when the House/Senate is in session? If we are, why not start attending these sessions on behalf of the American people and start speaking up either backing certain politicians or throwing others under the bus. If they will not listen any other way, why not just invite ourselves onto their playground.

Because, as a corporate entity the US Government can declare you "trespassing" and "Interfering with government business" and have you hauled off by the DC Metro police - or worse - whomever they've contracted with for security. Then they get to play 'authority figure,' with you as the pawn.... who nowadays is considered 'guilty of the crime of being a potential extremist."

Their conduct in such affairs demonstrates the true meaning of 'citizen - as opposed to serf.'

S&F, it's sad that we have to defend our way of life from those entrusted to maintain it.

"There's no fighting in the war room!" Dr Strangelove."

You probably would be asked to leave/removed before you would be noticed.

I figured as much, but I was hoping for a way for us to be able to speak up the moment they started spewing crap and try to nip things in the bud before it began.

I'm sickened. They truly want the American people to rise up and start a physically revolution. I say we bring back the Hippies and the summer of Love!
