    Read thusly:

    "Intrusive state power is awesome when we're in charge."

    The Democrat/Republican "fight" is puppet theater to keep us distracted. Nothing else.

    Hmmm, back in 2005 a bipartisan group of US Senators took this action?

    ...a bipartisan group of six senators said the tentative deal had caused them deep concern because it did not go far enough in "making reasonable changes to the original law to protect innocent people from unnecessary and intrusive government surveillance." - Patriot Act filibuster threatened / Senate objections on rights issues stall tentative agreement - SFGate

    Rand Paul was NOT on the side of ensuring civil rights?

    Go figure
