Rand Paul calls out Republican 'war caucus' in Fox News editorial

This was published yesterday on FoxNews.com, check it out if you haven't already, he calls out John McCain and Lindsey Graham too!


Sorry, Mr. Obama, the Constitution is not negotiable

By Sen. Rand Paul | June 12, 2013 | FoxNews.com

In the United States, we are supposed to have a government that is limited with its parameters established by our Constitution. This notion that the federal government can monitor everyone’s phone data is a major departure from how Americans have traditionally viewed the role of government.

If this is acceptable practice, as the White House and many in both parties now say it is, then there are literally no constitutional protections that can be guaranteed anymore to citizens. In the name of security, say our leaders, the Constitution has become negotiable.

This is what the White House is saying when it defends the National Security Agency’s gathering of Verizon’s client data en masse, or what President Obama calls a “modest encroachment” on our rights, as he assures us that “Nobody is listening to your phone calls.”

Rand won't name names

But I'll be happy to...

Republican war caucus:
Lindsay Graham
John McCain
John Boehner
Eric Cantor
Bill Kristol
Charles Krauthammer
Anne Coulter
Bill Kagan
Elliot Abrams
John Bolton
Dianne Feinstein

Half of these snakes aren't even elected, but yes they call the the shots. Feinstein isn't actually Republican, but what's the difference really?

anytime we give up our

anytime we give up our liberty, we lose.

Best Rand statement ever.

The gloves are off!

I fully support Rand. It's time to expose these treacherous leeches who all should be primaried and relegated to the dustbin of history.


The gloves are off, Rand is now taking it to the neocons on their home turf of Fox News as the battle lines are being drawn for the future of the Republican Party, Rand is winning hearts and minds of the GOP electorate and continuing to grow in influence and popularity.

Their reactions and

Their reactions and justifications of illegal spying, shows us just how much they shit on the constitution, i mean we knew it, but me personally, i at least thought there would be some little, maybe a semblence of restraint, maybe just a little bit, but there really is'nt is there, any mention of abiding by the constitution seems to be utterly lip service, in the face of "national security".......its a good thing then that the constitution is for the people by the people (It doesnt need government to exist).....if they think its going away, i think they will be surely mistaken.....the longer they stay ignorant to this, the worse i believe it will be for them......dependant on what they do offcourse

"I can remember not so long ago, when the war caucus - and we don’t need to name any names - were all saying 'we have to fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them here.'

Now, they are saying we have to give up our liberties to fight them here? Who is winning this battle?"

WHO? is the question!
