Rand Paul: "As President, On Day One, I Will Immediately End Unconstitutional Surveillance"

|

SEN. RAND PAUL: I envision a national defense that promotes, as Reagan put it, peace through strength.

We must realize though that we cannot project strength by borrowing money from China, to send it to Pakistan.

APPLAUSE, CHEERS: President Paul! President Paul! President Paul!

RAND PAUL: Let’s quit building bridges in foreign countries and use that money to build bridges at home. It angers me to see mobs burning our flag and chanting "Death to America" in countries that receive millions of dollars of our aid. I say, it must end. I say not one penny more to these haters of America!

APPLAUSE, CHEERS: President Paul! President Paul! President Paul!

RAND PAUL: To defend our country, we do need to gather intelligence on the enemy, but when the intelligence is not punished for lying under oath to Congress, how are we to trust our government agencies?

AUDIENCE MEMBER: We can't!

RAND PAUL: Warrantless searches, warrantless searches of America’s phone records and computer records are un-American and a threat to our civil liberties. I say to your phone records are yours. I say that the phone records of law-abiding citizens are none much their damn business!

The president created this dragnet by executive order. As president, on day one, I will immediately end this unconstitutional surveillance.
