The Ramifications of a Filibuster
By: Jacqueline Scott | March 27, 2013 | Opinion, Politics

Wow, is all I have to say.  Paul's Filibuster has been an amazing piece of politics.  Now there are two questions that we should ask ourselves and that we should be asking our government officials.  The first being, does the US government have the right to attack non-combatant on US soil with unmanned drones?  The Attorney General has already states this, no.  Clear, concise, and to the point.  Now a better question to ask would be this, "why did Paul have to filibuster to get a straight answer?"  I think this filibuster says something about the nature of government, with all its want for transparency, there is none.  Hopefully this filibuster will be a public display of stupidity and things will change.  One  can only hope.

She has lived in the United States and Eastern Europe, but as of now calls Wuxi, China her home. She's proudly travelled throughout the lower 48 states in America as an army brat, navigated her way from West to East in Europe, and has seen the most urban and rural areas of Southeast Asia. Through all her journeys she managed to double major in Political Science and History w/ a minor in Southeast Asian studies at Northern Illinois University, join the Peace Corps, and teach English to children on three different continents. She has learned a few things along the way she'd like to share as advice to a future world traveller: 1) Always accept a Grandmother's home-cooked meal and 2) Never lose your wits because you never know when or where you'll need them.
