Do You Still Stand With Rand? Ctd.




Bob Cesca would like to know where Rand Standers stand now that the Pureblood Patron Saint of Independent Civil Libertarians has opened his Freedom Hole  once again.

Rand Paul: “I Don’t Care if a Drone Kills Him”

We’ve come full circle today as Rand Paul makes everyone who ever stood with him look like a complete horse’s ass and a sucker.
In an interview with the Fox Business Network, Paul stated in very specific terms that he isn’t against the use of drones in situations where they wouldn’t be even remotely necessary.
“Here’s the distinction — I have never argued against any technology being used against having an imminent threat an act of crime going on,” Paul said.“If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and $50 in cash, I don’t care if a Drone kills him or a policeman kills him, but it’s different if they want to come fly over your hot tub, or your yard just because they want to do surveillance on everyone, and they want to watch your activities.”
Oh. Okay. It’s okay to use a drone to kill someone for robbing a liquor store, but not to spy on you while you’re in the hot tub.
Rand Paul: anti-drone civil liberties hero!
...
So are you still Standing With Rand?

And before you answer, remember the rules of engagement: the the only admissible answer is either an unreserved, dog-loyal "Yes, I agree completely with everything Rand Paul says and does." or an eternal, condemnatory "No, Rand Paul is an asshole who has never been on the right side of any issue in his life.". 

No middle-ground will be accepted.  No conditional statements will be admitted.  Because as we all know, "Yes, if..."'s and "No, but..."'s are for pussies and nuance-drunk O-bots only.


Also remember that these are not my rules: these are the rule by which the Purity Caucus insists that everyone else must abide.
