FreedomWorks and Rand Paul Sue the NSA

See Video

FreedomWorks released a video this afternoon shortly after they joined Senator Rand Paul in filing a class action lawsuit against President Obama and intelligence officials over the National Security Agency’s violation of the Fourth Amendment through their domestic surveillance program.

While preparing to walk over to the court, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe said, “One of the footnotes I find particularly interesting, this is a quote from then-Senator Barack Obama, who complained about the lack of judicial oversight with the NSA’s programs. He said in 2005, ‘If someone wants to know why their own government has decided to go on a fishing expedition through every personal record or private document, the library books you’ve read, the phone calls that you made, the emails that you sent, this legislation gives people no rights to appeal the need for such a need in a court of law. No judge will hear your plea. No jury will hear your case. This is just plain wrong.’”

Kibbe went on to call this the biggest day in FreedomWorks history.

During the joint press conference, Kibbe said, “I don’t think this is a partisan issue. This isn’t Republican versus Democrat. This isn’t about the Obama Administration. This is about a government that’s crossed a line.”

Senator Paul and FreedomWorks are being represented by former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who says that they filed the class action lawsuit “to vindicate the Fourth Amendment rights of every American who uses a phone.”

Sen. Rand Paul Defends the Fourth Amendment

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) released a video today this morning in which he explains why the Founding Fathers included the Fourth Amendments and offers a passionate defense of the right to privacy.

“The Fourth Amendment was included in the Constitution precisely to prevent the issuing of general warrants, in which blanket authority is given to government to spy on citizens at will,” said Paul. “Individualized suspicion of citizens’ records is precisely the kind of overreach we fought a revolution over. The colonists did not appreciate a British government that would go door-to-door searching anyone and everyone with out probable cause or suspicion.”

“The lesson of the American Revolution was that this should never happen again, and yet the NSA’s data collection program is the modern equivalent of this practice,” he said. “The Constitution is not a negotiable piece of parchment to be ignored or abused at the President’s whim. Washington leaders are expected to obey and protect what they took an oath to uphold.”

“Today is the day we begin to fight back,” said Paul in reference to the protests against mass surveillance that are going on today.

Paul is urging concerned Americans to visit Defendthe4th.com, a website dedicated to his class-action lawsuit against the NSA.
