Well put, 'Suzanne'.  [a pen name] 

It's beyond obvious by now: People on both sides of the political aisle have designs on America, to take it down the road to perdition called the New World Order, and to whom the enemy - and 'potential domestic terrorist' - is those of the citizenry who won't accept their fate as subjects of said totalitarian rule.  Aka patriots.  And thus, the drones [& other surveillance planes] over America; and the moves to take away our ability to defend ourselves from a rogue government by increasing gun-grabbing measures; and license-plate recognition technology; and total communication-devices surveillance; and FEMA concentration camps; and on, and on, and on.

Poor Fella, My Country.

Even while two Black Panthers, advocates for ISIS, admit plot to bomb Ferguson and Saint Louis Police*….Rand Paul thinks it's a good idea to curtail our ability to protect the public from this growing domestic threat.

Come on, David.  Be fair.  there are ways to engage in security measures that don't throw the baby of essential liberty out with the bathwater of irresponsibility.  Rand Paul is just asking us to get back to the Constitutional protections of a free country, running itself under the rule of law.  Not under the rule of men.  Another word for which is tyranny.

There are people in this country trying to take it over, and turn it into simply a part of a region of their totalitarian New World Order.  The threat to America is from both the far left - socialism/communism - and the far right - fascism.  The far right statists like to hide behind the flag.  But they are still liberty-destroying statists.  Both camps want a free hand to 'do their thing'.  A wise people will not give it to them.  For once gone, freedom - essential liberty - is very hard to get back.

The end does not justify the means - any and all means.  That's all that Rand Paul is saying.


Our Founding Fathers, of the likes of John Adams and Benjamin Franklin, had excellent words to share on all these sorts of subjects.

But then, what did they know......
