1. I voted yes, because the president could be, for example, a crackpot. We have no idea of the

mental condition of those we elect.

2. This just feeds into Rand Paul's crazyland narrative. It is a completely hyped issue.

4. So I take it you're a "no"?

This has been an issue for more than a year. Please don't couch it as a referendum on Paul.

17. It feeds into a rather unexceptional view of our government

I am not going to reject common sense (option #2) just because Rand Paul might favor something.

Secret national security court already (is supposed to) issue warrants for tapping phones for national security reasons.

Why isn't a similar level of oversight for a military assassination in the USA reasonable, as specified in the poll. (A 'hot pursuit' type situation like 9/11 wouldn't count, but would be reviewed after the fact.)

13. If we have another 767 headed for a building, take it out.

 

Yes I'm aware of possible collateral damage.

No I do not take that lightly.
