    Keven, thank you for bringing this to our attention. Good for him. Support him, folks, with emails and phone calls to not only the gov but also the blogs and the newspapers.

    Filibustering the Patriot Act is a good thing, but Rand Paul does not support ending the NSA and this is clearly just a publicity stunt.

    Ending the NSA is nowhere in the realm of reality.

    Limiting the federal government in any meaningful sense also isn't in the realm of reality; should we all just pick either Jeb or Hillary's name out of a hat and get behind them now?

    This has been the most educational filibuster about the virtues of the Constitution of the United States. If Rand Paul is the last Senator who defends the Constitution, the fourth amendment in particular, then so-be-it. Stand with Rand.

    Filibuster is on C-span 2.

    Hear the voice of the Constitution.

    Hold all the Yea voters of the Patriot Act renewal to the fire. Let these scumbags declare their treachery. We will not forget, we will not forgive.

    Molon Labe.

    I have never been for mass surveillance conducted to enrich the security industrial complex and impoverish the taxpayer. The *cough* "patriot" act is a antonym. it belongs in the same place the last Repub Admin's "Torture Memo" does- in the dustbin of history

    He's right, in this case. I guess a broken clock is right twice a day.
