Rand Paul Says That Calls for More Surveillance to Stop Terrorists Are ‘Bullshit!’

Rand must be raising more money when he makes libertarian-like statements.

The Blaze reports:
 It’s “hogwash” and “bulls**t” that more surveillance could prevent future terrorist attacks, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) told a room full of college students during a campaign event Thursday.

While speaking at a Students for Rand rally at George Washington University on a rainy afternoon, Paul slammed government and intelligence officials who argue that more phone surveillance could have prevented the Paris terrorist attacks last week or prevent future attacks from occurring. Surveillance being a key issue for the libertarian-leaning senator and his supporters, Paul pointed out that the National Security Agency’s collection of data hasn’t actually stopped and therefore isn’t helping thwart terrorist attacks.
