“Our numbers are growing!”
“There will be much work for us to do in the next year and in the next Congress,” continued Paul. “We need look no further than the grossly unconstitutional and immoral policies of the Transportation Security Administration – demanding that we either be irradiated or fondled to travel in our own country – to see that those who would deprive us of our civil liberties on the empty promise of full security will not be giving up easily. We must continue standing up to them and we must not compromise. We must not allow the out-of-control Department of Homeland Security to impose an East German-like police state in the U.S., where neighbors are encouraged by Big Brother or Big Sister to inform on their neighbors. We must not accept that government authorities should hector us via television screens as we go about our private lives, like we are living in Orwell’s 1984.
“I am optimistic that the incoming members of Congress understand the importance of what they have been entrusted with by the American people,” closed Paul. “But I do hope that those who elected them will watch their actions — and their votes in Congress – carefully. An early indication will be the upcoming vote on reauthorization of the anti-American PATRIOT Act. Defeat once and for all of this police-state legislation will be a great way to start 2011 and the 112th Congress. We must move ahead with confidence. Our numbers are growing.” More>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
