A Real Filibuster

Senator Rand Paul has launched today, an event that I was beginning to think would never occur in the U.S. Senate.  An actual filibuster.  I haven’t been able to listen to much of it and I’m sure that I would disagree with parts of it.  But I am fully in support of Senator Paul conducting the filibuster.

If there is one thing that I have heard from grassroots conservatives, it is a growing restlessness with Republican congressmen and especially Republican Senators to actually use their power to challenge the status quo.  We have heard for far too long that Senators can’t rock the boat because it would not be civil.

The problem is that grassroots conservatives are spoiling for a fight. They believe it is due and that it is time to make a stand, any stand, just to show that Republicans still know how to do it.

And now Senator Rand is showing the Old Guard how to do it.

How do you feel about Senator Rand’s filibuster?
