Rand Paul

It was impressive to watch Senator Rand Paul filibuster in the Hall of the U.S. Senate, Wednesday March 6, 2013. He was standing against unlawful drone strikes on American citizens, on American soil without due process. He spoke eloquently and with great candor and knowledge on the subject, and how such an act would tear the fabric of the Constitution. He spoke for thirteen hours, being spelled only briefly by other outstanding Republicans and one Democrat.

Senators Mike Lee (Utah), Marco Rubio (Florida), and Ted Cruz (Texas), planted their feet in the precious soil of principle and raised their voices for the Constitution of the United States. It was thrilling to watch, for it is rare to see such commitment from those in the Federal Government--men willing to stand for something imperative to the well-being of the American people.

It is time for "We the People" to wake up and be aware that the brilliant structure, power, and safeguards provided by the Constitution are being challenged and eroded. Read the Constitution, read "The 5000 Year Leap", get involved with a group studying not only the founding documents, but the issues of the day, and let your voice be heard! Look up your Senator's and Representative's phone numbers in Washington an put them on speed dial. Then, when an issue or a bill comes up, on which you have a studied opinion,  you can call them quickly.

You may also want to call Rand Paul's office in Washington, DC--(202 224-4343) and thank him for his courage and love for this country. (His office has been flooded with calls so be ready to wait to talk to one of the aids, or leave a message)

Just like the voice of Rand Paul, your voice matters!
