Rand Paul: More Cameras a 'Slippery Slope' Toward '1984'

It’s natural after an attack such as the Boston Marathon bombings to want to ratchet up security, but Americans are starting on a “slippery slope” when they start allowing more cameras in public places, claims Sen. Rand Paul.

“If the government’s going to use cameras to watch us they need to have probable cause,” the Kentucky senator said on Fox News Channel. “They need to have an argument to use the Constitution to do surveillance on us. And then I’m OK with it. But willy-nilly on everybody all the time in open spaces, I’m against that.”

  1. You know, ole Rand needs to just shut up. This man is okay with drone strikes, does anyone HONESTLY believe he isn't?!? Someone please tell me how someone "who is holding up a liquor store" deserves a drone strike?

    Last time I checked, our blue line on the ground does at least attempt to get the perp to give up. Drones cannot talk.....yet.

    He is even letting them have "an out" by saying well....if they come up with a good argument then I am all for it.

    Personally.....I have written him off as a CINO.
