Ron Paul fans furious over Rand's drone stand...

And another one bites the dust.........

Ron Paul's vibrant fan base is in open rebellion today over Rand Paul's perceived reversal on domestic drone strikes. The Kentucky senator, whose famous 13-hour Senate floor filibuster did much to strengthen his ties with his father's hardcore following, told Fox Business Network on Tuesday he's OK with drone strikes on American citizens who, for instance, rob a liquor store.

"I've never argued against any technology being used when you have an imminent threat, an active crime going on," Paul said. "If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and fifty dollars in cash. I don't care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him."

Yikes! I do exactly that, almost every week! Rand doesn't know about due process, and "innocent until proven guilty"?

We really should elect some non-kooky Libertarians.

I think we may be getting it a bit wrong, Judge Nap tweeted he talked to him and that we might be taking it wrong. We'll see tonight.

No we are not getting it a bit wrong. I did see this yesterday on facebook and he was attacked numerous times by his fan-base. I actually mailed him and have him explain to me where his double standard came from or on what it was based. I have yet to receive an answer from him.

First a 13hour filibuster to condemn drone strikes on American soil against American citizens and now he condones them. Rand appears to become that proverbial leaf on a tree that blows with all winds.

Pathetic.

yet you guys voted for someone who is incredibly worse with regards to being a 'proverbial leaf on a tree that blows with all winds'.

Pathetic, for sure.

ps, I don't really care about Rand Paul. I haven't read much into this issue yet. Smile

agreed, his backpeddle was almost as bad as his original statement. most of the dichotomy obsessed gop should love him. he's proving himself to be the lesser of a number of evils.

We voted. What effort did you expend towards replacing Obama, again, Andrew? Oh, that's right: nothing. You did nothing. My newborn grandson did the same thing, probably for the same reasons.

Here you go again with the "You Guys" thing Andrew. I did not vote for any of these guys so please do not generalize and put me in a group I do NOT believe in or belong to.

Exactly and Obama is by far, the worst thing that EVER happened to this country and we are all going to pay dearly, in many ways, for a long, long, long time.

Rand Paul is wrong on this one, but, the ONE is wrong on EVERYTHING. and that's because he is an enemy of the United States of America. And that's a FACT.
