"the Constitution was never mentioned by Holder" Of course not. This administration doesn't let a little thing like the Constitution get in their way. Hang in there Rand. You speak for many of us.

Another excellent point justmc!!!!!

And again it is why we need a groundswell on the issue of the 3rd amendment!

Lets get the public distracted and cry wolf over more constitutional issues. Just like drones it is a distraction from real problems in the country because just like drones where there is no plan to use them we need to get people fired up over non issues!

We have budget and debt problems, 6 soldiers died this week in azzkrakistan we still have not secured our borders and we have REAL anti-constitution violations of the 2nd amendment proposed but let's filibuster and get people fired up over something not happening

Sure, but to be fair, the memo itself is not what is important anyway. Of course, as you say, they won't adhere to any contract. They will ONLY be checked by their perception of the public's opinion. The memo doesn't represent a contract we can expect them to uphold, but it DOES represent their concern over what the groundswell of public opinion is, and what it is further becoming.

Now think how silly the comment of fiddler is. I agree Obama often ignores the constitution but of course if he ignores the constitution what good was the memo? The memo was much less specific then the constitution and had huge loopholes

WASHINGTON -- When Senator Rand Paul took to the floor of the United States Senate the morning of March 6 he really -- as they say -- may have made a difference. It is a difference in our awareness of the issues facing the country. It is a difference in our perception of the man who is leading the country, President Barack Obama. It might even have been a difference in the direction the country will go. Will it continue on its melancholy path toward statism or will it follow the course of freedom as laid out by the Founding Fathers?
