Rand Paul gets standing ovation at Berkeley

http://dailycaller.com/2014/03/19/ra...under-assault/

BERKELEY, Calif. — Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.”

“I am here to tell you that if you own a cell phone, you’re under surveillance,” he told the crowd.

Paul’s address at the Berkeley Forum on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley focused on the National Security Agency’s collection of telephone metadata and the debate over privacy.



During his remarks, the potential 2016 Republican candidate discussed California Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s claim that the CIA had spied on her congressional staff, and announced that he plans to call for a special committee on Capitol Hill to investigate the domestic spying by government agencies .

“No one should be allowed to invade your privacy,” Paul said. “That’s why I’m announcing today that when I return to Washington, I will push for a select committee styled after the Church Committee that investigated the abuses of power of the intelligence committee in the 70s. It should be bipartisan. It should be independent, and wide reaching. It should have full power to investigate and reform those who spy on us in the name of protecting us.”

Added Paul: “It should watch the watchers.”

That Paul decided to take his libertarian-leaning message to one of the most liberal campuses in the country is no mistake. He is actively making an effort to appear before crowds that have not been supportive of Republicans to demonstrate his ability to appeal to a broader electorate.

Yeah, except you probably railed against it when it was Bush.

I thought that act had been rather thoroughly examined and explained. I could be wrong, however.

Nice one man, I like it..but Dave would just ask that the evil spirits reenter.

Pretty early to be the front runner, but if there is one, Rand is it. It looks to me like the establishment doesn't really know what to do. Some of them seem to want to double down on Christie. Jeb is the dream, but Jeb doesn't seem to be getting an organization together to do it, and isn't looking really interested. Now they've got Joe Scarborough stumping in New Hampshire, which is an interesting idea - if Obama could get elected on being a celebrity, why not Joe? All the rest really have no "oomph" to them, though that can be manufactured - who knew either Huckabee or Santorum could get as far as either of them did? There's still quite a base of social conservatives in the Iowas and South Carolinas... But surely most people know that religious conservatives like this have limited crossover appeal.

Will be interesting to see how this shakes out.

That is my understanding of the power granted. If someone can show me that I’m wrong it would make me feel much better. I don’t think the Gov is running around snatching up people left and right but, it would really suck to be picked up by mistake and then have no one willing to admit their error so you spend the rest of your days in a snazzy orange jumpsuit smaking Cuban mosquitoes.
