Rand Paul Applauded by Kentucky GOP as "Shining Example"

Seeing the dangers of an executive branch that is out of control, Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul recently engaged in a 13-hour filibuster in order to delay a vote for Brennan as CIA director until questions were answered concerning the controversial drone program, where issues over whether or not the president could order the deaths of non-combatant U.S. citizens on American soil.

Getting a response of "no," Paul was considered a terrific example of doing things correctly to not only get answers, but to help others realize things need to be slowed down and not allowed to be fast-tracked as they have in the past.

To that end the Kentucky GOP  pointed out Paul as a 'shining example of Republican leadership.' They did so via a resolution to that effect.

Also pointed out for praise was Republican Floor Leader Mitch McConnell for "coming to his aid."

According to the resolution, Paul's principled stand “ignited a grassroots phenomenon” across America.
