Rand Paul asks Americans to join him in a class action lawsuit targeting the NSA (Video)

NSA cc cc

This is a Constitutional issue. This is a general privacy issue. But it’s also a crony capitalism issue. How many tech companies have been compelled to partner with, or have partnered willingly with the NSA in its domestic spying efforts? At this moment it looks like a good part of Silicon Valley falls into one or both of these categories.

I wish people like Paul would tell the truth, the truth is he should be suing George W Bush the creator and architect of all these intrusions on everyone's personal privacy. I wish people would get from behind ignorance and racism and stop allowing people like Rand Paul to lie and trick you to believing everything is President Obama's creation when in fact it's all Republican's creation

Paul is a crony capitalist. And a traitor. To deliberately sabotage our government... This site seems to be steering people away from actual cronies . Seems not to care about the 4000 a year tax payers spend on corporate welfare.

the only people against the NSA trying to keep another 9-11 from happening are those that want another 9-11 to happen on Obama's watch.... then they can say, Dems can't keep US safe.... Period.... (everyone else just bought the propaganda against it and jumped on the bandwagon blindly)..... They Can't look at Anything they obtained without "Probable cause and a search warrant"... Period!!!.... (Obama made it that way, Bush didn't even have that).... it's Legal.... if you don't want them storing your data, get rid of your phone and computers.... Nobody screams about the companies that already have all that data on you and are making $Billion$ from it without giving you a dime.... I don't get it... People are Plotting to Kill Americans.... Let them do their jobs..... (the government's first job is to protect it's citizens)....

with freedom comes responsibility.Some people think that freedom gives them rights to do whatever they like. freedom to speak as they wish regardless of other people's rights, free this symbol stand and other peoples way, freedom to bear arms and use them as they wish,. I believe that one persons freedom ends where another person's freedom begins. For.our country to remain free we sometimes have to sacrifice in order to remain secure. If that means that I have to be searched on traveling or sometimes be inconvenience in order for the rest of us to be safe then so be it. If you love your freedom embrace it, but remember you have a responsibility to others, it's not all about you.

Seems like these brown-shirts learned nothing from WWII. Gonna take a civil war to get things sorted out and reclaim our freedom. Too many uneducated and brainwashed cows in our way.

Perhaps a class action lawsuit against the Feds, the administration, the leaders of the "defense" of this country, and any other malevolent entity that has sought fit to continue profiting at the expense of the human race and, perhaps even the solar system. Take care to discern that which is a distraction from that which is a solution.

Why hate? Love them and communicate non-violently (peacefully) with those whom we desperately need to be aware. Hating them and using cliche's, I have observed, has a tendency to insult and strengthen their foothold in the illusion.

anyone who still doesn't get that the secret Cabals are the real power behind all "sides" and continues to talk "politics" and parties, . . . is really at a disadvantage in their understanding and debate. Class action lawsuits are beside the point and grandstanding, which Rand is an expert at. That's why he reminds some people of other congressmen they don't like. . . hence the "traitor" moniker. He is acting like so many others. Until we overcome the real causes behind our demise, these types of actions are a waste of time and money and energy, other than the psychological lift it gives people. But it does nothing to end our main problems, which is related to bankers, the Fed, money and it's control and uses, etc. and the really sick people behind it all. The NSA is a tool of these people . . fighting with a tool is not the direct path. The other thing people need to be aware of is that at all levels of government there is a split between the forces of " the Light and the Dark Side", if you will. Its not like it is so straightforward, you know.

There are a lot of traitors on Capitol Hill. Traitor is a strong word for Paul, but "worryisome" works pretty well for him. A lot of intelligent people beside you feel that Rand is not his Dad and has been way too much about playing games with the Darth Vaders in the GOP and senate. He has good intentions but is playing a dangerous game, thinking he is a better chess player. His dad, Ron, was a purist in the sense he knew better than to roll in the mud with pigs. Rand sees nothing wrong with a roll in the mud if in the end, he feels he got some advantage. In the end, he will end up looking foolish. He has been rather inconsistent on his stances and votes; drones comes to mind as an example but it is not the only one. Intelligent people don't really give a damn whether it "embarrasses" Obama or not. He has already embarrassed himself beyond repair. "whether we are a free country or not??" I wish you were kidding. I didn't know it was still up for debate.

another MORON speaks to the crowd...why didnt they go after Bush when he started this...Obama already said he is going to downgrade who is listened in on. Any court that lets this action continue is wasting valuable resources that could go towards the things the republicans want to cut.

Jacquie Lempka why you wanna put up obscure stories. Who supported bin Laden sold weapons to Iran, supplied WMD to Saddam Hussein. Your man Ronnie Reagan , why don't you say something about that? I guess you wouldn't do that because that's the part of your agenda. These are real facts that are irrefutable.

Not to me, but don't listen to me, as I could be just as wrong as right! To me, THOSE WHO STAND AGAINST the FREEDOMS GIVEN TO AMERICAN CITIZENS, ARE ANTI-AMERICAN, and THUS DO NOT BELONG in AMERICA! HELP Rand Paul FIGHT AGAINST THOSE ANTI-AMERICAN COMPANIES, be they FEDERAL, STATE, COUNTY, CITY or TOWN! WHEN ANY COMPANY STARTS TO HARM AMERICANS, it is TIME to DISBAND THAT COMPANY! If you feel this is bad advise, please, like anything else I write, ignore it! \\ FIGHT BACK AMERICA //

You leftists are so incredibly MENTALLY ILL it is breathtaking. That is how YOU think so you PROJECT YOUR MENTAL ILLNESS onto others.


Conservatives warned the Bush administration that the Patriot Act could be used for ill intent in the wrong hands. Obama is INSANE, paranoid, manipulative, racist & a self absorbed control freak. He has used federal agencies to target & destroy those that oppose his radical, Socialist agenda. He is EXACTLY the kind of person we were worried about & has confirmed our worst fears.


You want to live under Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Marxism or a dictatorship go anywhere else in the world, you pathetic, mentally ill loser.
