Shouldn't the libs, who were screaming about the Patriot Act, be standing with Rand?

I thank Rand Paul for spearheading this suit. I am concerned about what will happen when it eventually reaches the Supreme Court. Can we be sure they will adhere to the Constitution, or will they blatenly disregard it as they did with Obamacare?

Do you even know what a neo-con is? Besides, wether he wins, or loses his case, or as you put it "a PR stunt", the idea is to get people questioning the government, and the power they hold over us. The people that vote are the most un informed, apathetic, willfully ignorant bunch of lazy slogs, I've ever seen. All of which is the goal set by the progressives over a hundred years ago. Well, the harvest is in, and it's bumper crop!

Rand is not a L/libertarian. But this suit should be applauded, by people of ALL stripes.

The wings of the NSA needs to be clipped and their eyes needs to be taken out. Spying on everyone but does nothing to benifit anything other than violating our rights. Next Obama needs to go as well.

That's what Rand Paul is all about : getting some attention for himself. His motivations are always so transparent.

I'm in no way will support this rand guy. he's totally inauthentic. with that I mean with racial issues, social security, the Affordable Care Act, etc. He said he would quit the race and become a full-time practitioner because of the allegations of plagiarism. How come he is not doing it? Go your own way rand.

Hmmm... big corp depends on big government. As such anyone wanting to cut the size of government is an enemy in the eyes of corp. Look up the commerce department supporting "moderates" and immigration. Or even the secret TPP trade agreement if you want to see corporatism. That takes BIG government to accomplish.

Thank you Ben and Mike for proving my point.

But if it were Wal-Mart, Goldman Sachs, Monsanto or Exxon doing this, Rand Paul would call anyone who objected a lazy mooching socialist. Rand Paul doesn't support us. He supports corporations. He wants to weaken government to pave the way for corporate rule.

Benjamin Stockton

The problem is that if it were Wal-Mart, or Exxon, or Goldman-Sachs doing the surveillance, Rand Paul would be defending their God-give right under Truth, Capitalism and the American Way to anally probe us at will. Rand Paul doesn't support people. He supports corporations. He wants to downsize government so we can be put under corporate rule.

I'll give up my privacy because my life would not interest anyone and I have nothing to hide. I don't want to see anymore 911's that's all-!

The patriot act is an unconstitutional piece of fascist legislation that would be far more fitting for Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union then 'the land of the free'. If you're so eager to surrender your freedoms to the government so that you can feel safer then perhaps you would feel more secure living in such a regime, but I'll take my chances with freedom.

Well Yvonne, I agree there is no shortage of hypocrisy on this in both major parties. As I have stated on FB before, when the patriot act was passed under Bush and I spoke out against it I had a good many conservatives suggest that anyone who had a problem with the patriot act must have something to hide. They are most certainly singing an entirely different tune on that now with it coming from a president with a D in front of his name, but the flip side is the good many Democrats who agreed with me on this when Bush was president but now that it's 'their guy' using the constitution as toilet paper in the name of 'protecting' us they see nothing wrong with this.

Some people are so negative. Would whine and complain if you hung them with a NEW ROPE. NEGATIVE NO-IT ALLS, WITH NO EVIDENCE TO BACK UP THEIR RAMBLINGS.

Because like I said in my own comment, he's just another establishment Republican trying to get that many more voters by pandering to his father's Libertarian base on this one issue. Other than this and his isolationist foreign policy, he's just another cookie cutter Republican.

Shelly McFarland you can give up your rights if you want just don't demand that I do. As far as this suit I still am not sure what to think of Rand Paul. He sure as hell isn't his father.
