At the Lincoln Day Dinner, Lindsey Graham challenged the opinion of Rand Paul - who said that the government should get warrants to arrest possible terrorists instead of illegally spying - said "If you are thinking about joining Al-Qaeda, or ISIL, anybody thinking about that? I'm not going to call a judge, I'm going to call a drone and we'll kill you."

This could be looked at in two ways, if context is not given. One would be he'll kill US citizens without due process, or he'll kill foreigners as we do now for possibly being terrorists. But given that it was in reply to Rand Paul's statement about getting warrants to arrest suspects, it is narrowed down to the former.

This is extremely frightening when you consider that some people want him to become President.

There's something creepy about Lindsey Graham.

Lindsey Ghraham is too gay to be the republican nominee.

Well, one does have to give credit Obama on the use of drones against American civilians without any type of oversight. That precedence was set in 2011 when they drone bombed Anwar al-Awlaki citing the Authorization to Use Military Force act.

Lindsy's stance is probably the majority stance in Washington, unfortunately.
