Rand Paul's Latest Stand Has Bought Another Chance for Real Surveillance Reform

The past week has seen an epic, historic struggle on the Senate floor over the line between the surveillance state and Americans' 4th Amendment rights. Senator Rand Paul and a handful of reform-minded colleagues from both parties are continuing to block any effort to let the government mass surveillance authorities be renewed without strong protections for Americans' right to due process.

Passionate Youth Stand with Rand to End Mass Surveillance

Yesterday, Senator Rand Paul proved yet again that he is dedicated to upholding the Constitution. For eleven hours, the Kentucky Senator claimed the senate floor to filibuster the reauthorization of the Patriot Act, which permits mass surveillance of American citizens. Warrantless spying and bulk data collection has been a massive infringement on our basic fourth amendment rights. Even 65% of American adults believe there are not adequate limits on the telephone and internet data that the government collects, according to a recent Pew poll.

Rand Paul made the constitutional conservative case for justice reform in his nearly 11-hour filibuster

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) offered a nearly 11-hour constitutional seminar on Wednesday evening. He defended Americans’ civil liberties against problematic provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act that have been broadly interpreted to allow the federal government to illegally conduct mass surveillance against law-abiding Americans.

Stand with Rand, Again

As you read this, Sen. Rand Paul is standing on the Senate floor, delivering an old-fashioned talking filibuster. He intends to stand until he can no longer speak.

Ted Cruz and the American Team

Senator Ted Cruz took to the floor of the US Senate yesterday just shortly after 2:30pm ET. His primary goals were to highlight the failures of ObamaCare, reading examples from real people all over America and talk about the importance of removing the funding for Obamacare. Senator Cruz spoke about the effect Obamacare on the American Dream -- and that people scared of standing up for their beliefs should remember how much more difficult things can be if they don't.

Cloture… Which Cloture? Or How to Defund ObamaCare in the Senate

This fight to defund ObamaCare is taking a turn for the arcane as it heads into the more frustratingly obtuse chamber of Congress, the Senate. Although the antiquated system of parliamentary arcana in the Senate helps to slow down bills in order that they receive more thorough and deliberate debate, it also makes the proceeding in that chamber very different for those outside the beltway to understand.
