Rand Paul 2016? Think again.
– Did Rand Paul Endorse Establishment Republican To Block “Liberty Democrat”? (Benn Swann, April 28, 2014):
Did Senator Rand Paul endorse an establishment Republican to protect her seat from a “liberty Democrat”? As we reported Saturday, Senator Rand Paul was the keynote speaker at the Maine GOP Convention on Saturday where he endorsed Republican Senator Susan Collins in her re-election bid this year.
Speaking to the Portland Herald Press minutes before taking the stage, Paul said,
“I whole-heartedly endorse Senator Collins for re-election. I think she is doing a great job for Maine and for the country.” He went on to say that he was unaware of her stance on the NSA saying, “I don’t really know, exactly, what her position is on the NSA; you’d have to ask her about that.”
As we exclusively reported, Senator Collins record on NSA spying and wiretapping is not strong for those who believe in liberty.
Collins voted YES on extending the PATRIOT Act’s roving wiretaps in February of 2011.
Voted NO on requiring a FISA court warrant to monitor US-to-foreign calls. (Feb 2008)
Voted YES on removing need for FISA warrant for wiretapping abroad. (Aug 2007)
Voted NO on preserving habeas corpus for Guantanamo detainees. (Sep 2006)
Voted NO on requiring CIA reports on detainees & interrogation methods. (Sep 2006)
Voted YES on reauthorizing the PATRIOT Act. (Mar 2006)
Voted YES on extending the PATRIOT Act’s wiretap provision. (Dec 2005)
Based on those issues one would question why Senator Rand Paul, who is building his campaign largely on the issue of NSA spying and the restoration of Constitutional rights and civil liberties, would say Susan Collins “is doing a great job for Maine and for the country.”
