xLife: "Don't know about Rand Paul, but most of the conservatives "on the right side of this issue" would be on the exact opposite side of the issue if a Republican were president."

That may well be true but some issues are too important to ignore solely because you do or don't like the proponent. Giving the executive branch the power to murder people with killing machines without any form of judicial review is unsupportable.

I would ask my liberal friends, "Would you voluntarily give Dick Cheney the power to murder people with killing machines without any form of judicial review?" If the answer is no, I would ask, "What do you think Dick Cheney would do with the power that you ceded to Obama if he were the next person to win the presidency?"

I will not use a bunch of crazed right wing haters who post on these boards as my measuring stick for determining right from wrong.
