Paul says limited reform of the National Security Agency is insufficient. Instead, Paul explains that the correct course is abolishing the agency and terminating its destructive activities:
The bigger picture is they have no business doing it in the first place….Watch here the complete interview, in which Paul also discusses people using their cell phones to document police brutality and young Americans potentially challenging government liberty violations at home and interventions abroad:
But, you can’t just say we’re going to monitor it, and let’s have search warrants to take pictures. We have to look at the principle, and the principle is the government has no right to do this, and the people shouldn’t put up with it.
Paul’s comments regarding the NSA reinforce the declaration of RPI Advisory Board Member Andrew Napolitano on Monday that the NSA photo intercepts are a blatant violation of the United States Constitution and privacy rights.
While Paul calls for abolition of the NSA and its activities destructive of freedom, recent legislative action in the US House of Representatives has been in the other direction — sham reform that maintains the mass spying program.
