No wonder why the neo-cons love Rand so much. He is trying to help erode our civil liberties.
But I’m sure you Rand worshippers will just say “he is just trying to get support to win…”
Do you think Rand Paul supporter’s heads will explode when one of their own, Justin Amash, is calling out the Rand sponsored amendment for allowing indefinite detention of American citizens?
‘The heart of the Feinstein amendment:
“An authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States apprehended in the United States, UNLESS AN ACT OF CONGRESS EXPRESSLY AUTHORIZES SUCH DETENTION.”
Well, that Act of Congress is the 2012 NDAA, which renders the rest of the Feinstein amendment meaningless.’
Either Rand Paul is so ignorant of politics he doesn’t realize that the amendment he sponsored
will be used to authorize indefinite detention, or he is lying through his teeth like a typical
politician. Amash and Rand can’t both be right.
