I understand your great comment.

You are helping me understand the possible thought process behind Rand's vote.

Now, I am thinking what Ron Paul would say about this. I believe it would go something like this:

The Constitution is the Constitution whether you are in the House, the Senate, or the oval office. Every elected Congressman, Senator, and President swears to uphold it with the very same words. They either vote, sign, or veto bills or override the vetoes with those same words in mind. They all have to answer to the People for their actions. If you can justify this vote, then can you also also justify a president going to war hastily, or the passage and signing of a bill like the Patriot Act or the NDAA with every good intention?
