Rand Paul on the Patriot Act

Say 'NO' to the Police State:

Most Americans would agree that requiring third-party judicial oversight is what protects all of us from living in a police state, where those doing the arresting are answerable only to themselves. I filibustered the Patriot Act to fight for the Second Amendment and the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. In all likelihood, my stance is not well understood nor a smart move if one's goal is simply to seek re-election, but I sincerely believe, as Benjamin Franklin wrote, that those who trade their liberty for security may wind up with neither.
