Let's see what Rand does

Greenwald writes: "The Editorial also notes that legislation has been introduced by the now-defeated Russ Feingold to (a) ban all border laptop searches and seizures except where there is reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing; (b) require a probable cause warrant from a court in order for a laptop and other electronic devices to be seized and kept by the Government; and (c) limit the ability of Homeland Security to share the information it obtains. That illustrates why, despite his flaws, Feingold's re-election was one of the very few this year about which I cared enough to advocate. That bill has three remaining Senate co-sponsors, all Democrats (Akaka, Wyden, Cantwell), but if the Tea Party candidates were even minimally genuine about their professed belief in liberty and limited government, shouldn't they vocally support such limitations on the Federal Government's unfettered power to invade, seize and then forever keep your laptops, cellphones and other instruments of communication and thought? Who can simultaneously support that power and claim with a straight face to be an advocate of individual liberty and limited government?"

--I now what Ron Paul would do -- what will Rand do ?
