Yeah I know you are really concerned about drones. But how do you feel about police helicopters, like the one that followed O.J. Simpson's Bronco around for an hour or two? And how about SWAT team snipers, like the ones who sometimes take down armed men in a hostage situation?
what I am saying is that state, local, and federal governments are already doing these things in armed vehicles and flying machines. The only difference is that the pilot for the drone is in a computer lab, not in the cockpit of the flying machine itself.
i am not particularly concerned about Federal use of drones in the USA. I do not visualize one dropping a hellfire missile on me- even if the President would happen to be of a different political party than myself. any President to do such a thing without sufficient evidence that the targeted person was a clear and immediate danger to US citizens would have serious problems staying in office.
if you think I am calling Rand Paul paranoid, well, okay. I guess I am.
