“If you like your privacy, you can keep it”

Like a stand-up comedian with a political edge, Rand Paul deployed some witty one-liners after President Barack Obama’s comments on Friday about reforming the National Security Agency.

Rand Paul has so fare not been able to rally Capitol Hill to impeach Obama.

“What I think I heard is that if you like your privacy, you can keep it,” Paul, the Republican senator from Kentucky, said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “But in the meantime, we’re going to keep collecting your phone records, your email, your text messages and, likely, your credit card information.”

In Friday’s speech, Obama called for limited reforms on how the NSA collects information, promising that the United States would no longer eavesdrop on world leaders and would rein in the vast collection of Americans’ phone data.

“The reforms I’m proposing today should give the American people greater confidence that their rights are being protected, even as our intelligence and law enforcement agencies maintain the tools they need to keep us safe,” the president said.

Aside from the promise not to eavesdrop on world leaders, Obama largely left other proposed reforms up for discussion, effectively shifting the debate to congressional leaders.

Paul had another snappy response, when noting that Obama referenced American Revolution figure Paul Revere in his remarks.
“He mentioned Paul Revere. But Paul Revere was warning us about the British coming,” Paul said. “He wasn’t warning us that the Americans are coming.”

Later in the interview, Paul said he’s opposed to all massive data collection, by both the federal government and the private sector. Beyond civil liberty concerns, Paul said such massive surveillance just isn’t practical.

“Who are we going to hire, Eric Snowden’s contractor to hold all the information?” Paul said, laughing at his own joke.

My comment:

If you still believe in the messages of Barack Hussein Obama, there are only a few possible reasons left.
1. You are blindfolded.
2. You are extremely naive.
3. You simply refuse to listen to the truth.
4. You take pleasure in the evils of the US President.

There might be combinations of the four options, if you like to give me feedback on why you still are Obama supporter.

  1. Hello Ivar ! And God Bless You !

    It never ceases to amaze me just how gullible, and BLIND such a large number of Americans are as to the pure EVIL of this creature…….

    Thank You for speaking out with the TRUTH ! It certainly DOES MATTER…. Keep up your excellent work!

    Again,

    May God Bless You and watch over You!

  2. Thank you Ivar, I fear for the people who will be left here during the Tribulation after so much of the communications and finance will be controlled by the Big Data and identity management systems being put into place. In his speech he admitted executive power was increased, but somehow this is reported as power limiting, even if a little; it is not. I think to your list you can add ignorance, because the developments are not reported to the general public, and people are not going to on their own read the government and technology sources to look for what they do not know is happening, because they do not know that they do not know!
