Rand Paul – Giving up your rights when you support the Patriot Act

You may not like all of his positions, but Rand Paul does a great job of outlining why the Patriot Act is unAmerican and unhealthy for our republic.

The Patriot Act sounds good as long as it is ‘our guys’ looking for the ‘bad guys’, unless ‘our guys’ are out and the other guys are in.

When there is no accountability then there will be abuse. 9/11 happened because it happened. Terrorists found a weak spot and struck. There is no reason that we should give up indefinitely our rights.

Rand Paul: If you are not going to protect the entire Bill of Rights then you aren’t going to have any of it.

To protect my own rights I need to protect your rights, and you need to protect mine — even when we don’t like each other.

>> “If you have nothing to hide then you have nothing to fear.” … Not. UnAmerican. Period. I am not guilty until proven innocent. Neither are you.

  1. George S. Harris

    I surely do wish the president had thought more carefully about renewing the act.

  2. Liberty taken from one of us is liberty taken from all of us. Rand Paul, like all Libertarians, gets that. “Tolorence” and defense of individual rights is core to our being.

    I am delighted to see Libertarians in both the house (Ron Paul) and the Senate (Rand Paul). They change the nature of the debate and add a dash of “principle” to any issue. Neither will ever sit in the White House; however, their very presence will help determine who sits there next.
