#6. Paul is the Senate's Biggest Habeas Corpus Advocate

Paul stated, “ [what] motivates me more than any other issue is the defense of everyone’s rights.” To back his proclamation, Paul filibustered Congress for 13 hours, “holding] the floor for most of the day and night to rail against the administration’s drone program while holding up the nomination of John Brennan for CIA director… [challenging] the president’s authority to kill Americans with drones.”

So strongly did Paul feel about his position that he made the 9th longest filibuster in U.S. Congressional history (3) stating over and over — in different, but no uncertain terms — that, “your rights to trial by jury are precious… no American should be killed by a drone on American soil.”
