So was the filibuster a stunt or was it an act of patriotism? I believe it was the later and here is why:
First, Paul was successful in getting the media to cover the real issue- potential drone attacks in the US on Americans. While McCain and Graham may not believe the government would ever think of using drones against their own citizens, how many events and misuses of governmental authority have transpired in our country in recent years we never thought possible? And after Holder’s comments to Congress, why wouldn’t it be possible?
