The Rand Paul filibuster has been immensely clarifying. Any member of our Ruling Class who opposes him on this point is an enemy of the United States of America. That includes most of our Ruling Class on both sides of the aisle, as well as the Wall Street Journal and Alternet. Some righties and lefties have come to his side, to their credit. But most our Ruling Class approves the idea of a state that can secretly order your death without any accountability whatsoever. They pose a far greater danger to our freedom–and in the long run, our lives–than some Bronze Age goons in a cave in Afghanistan.
