Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), a potential Republican White House contender in 2016, electrified conservative activists Friday by warning that President Barack Obama was taking America down the road to tyranny.
“Imagine a time when the White House is once again occupied by a friend of liberty,” the libertarian-leaning lawmaker told the Conservative Public Action Committee (CPAC), where he is hugely popular with small-government Tea Party Republicans.
The son of longtime congressman and former presidential candidate Ron Paul, the libertarian-leaning senator is an unapologetic defender of constitutional liberties and advocate for reducing the role of US government in Americans’ daily lives.
Paul raised his profile a year ago when he gave a 13-hour speech on the Senate floor railing against the Obama administration’s use of drones and how they might be used to kill Americans abroad.
His stock soared when, in the aftermath of revelations that the National Security Agency was scooping up most Americans’ phone records, he sued the president in an effort to end the secret program.
“Will we be like lemmings rushing to the comfort of Big Brother’s crushing embrace?” he asked, stoking the crowd by insisting the NSA phone data collection program is eroding their liberties.
“What you do on your cell phone is none of their damn business,” he bellowed to a standing ovation.
At least four other potential White House candidates addressed CPAC — Senator Ted Cruz, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Texas Governor Rick Perry and former senator Rick Santorum — as the race slowly but steadily heats up for who will replace Obama when his second term ends.
It was Paul who perhaps most effectively drew listeners to the issue of the Constitution and how Obama is putting its personal protections under threat.
“A great president would have protected us from the prying eyes of the NSA,” he said.
As he starts offering specifics on his ideas for California, the Republican zeros in on the controversial high-speed rail project. FRESNO — The rescue mission for addicts stands squarely in the path of California's controversial bullet train, and gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari had decided to use the grim setting for an attack on the rail project dear to Gov.
