How about no drones period? How about not killing anyone with drones? How about Rand Paul shuts his mouth until he learns that nobody should be killed with drones.

...And if they also control the people who make it legal, and control the definition of "bad guy" then they now write their own blank checks, which should be twice as traumatic that doesn't seem to grasp the real implications of this. Don't expect this to stop politely at anti-"terrorism " machinery once it is swallowed as normal. This is the last cop they'll ever need to roll out. With great power nowadays comes zero accountability.

And yes, please get over "sheeple".
