Rand Paul Continues To Call Out Obama, Feds At CPAC

Republican National Convention in Tampa

Senator Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) recent old school filibuster on the Senate floor has made him more popular than ever among many American conservatives. In his speech at CPAC today, Paul focused on the message he wants the President and the Federal government to hear loud and clear: no one person gets to decide the law, no one person gets to decide your guilt or innocence.

“President Obama who seemed, once upon a time, to respect civil liberties, has become the President who signed a law allowing for the indefinite detention of an American citizen. Indeed, a law that allows an American citizen to be sent to Guantanamo Bay without a trial,” Paul said. “President Obama defends his signing of the bill by stating that he has no intention of detaining any American citizen without a trial.

“Likewise, he defended his possible targeted Drone strikes against Americans on American soil by indicating that he has no intention of doing so,” he continued. “Well, my thirteen hour filibuster was a message to the President. Good intentions are not enough.”

In case you missed the Paul speech, you can watch it below. And don’t worry; it’s about 12 hours and 45 minutes shorter than his filibuster.
