SEN RAND PAUL VS THE PATRIOT ACT w/ Michael Collins >>

EPISODE #137

AIRED: 06-07-2015

Last week Americans witnessed One Man standing virtually alone in fighting to end mass surveillance on the Patriot Act— Sen. Rand Paul. Blog journalist, Michael Collins talks about his article in OpEd News, Thank You Rand Paul for a Patriotic Act, and the genuine excitement of witnessing a true commitment to bettering our country. Collins expounds what that fight signals for American politics, and why Sen. Rand Paul is emerging at the front of a crowded pack of Republican candidates. Our conversation goes into the specifics of the repackaged “Freedom Act,”– an abhorrent title– which reassigns meta-data collection to phone companies and internet providers, while requiring a court warrant for government access. Michael Collins speculates on the blowback that Sen Rand Paul is likely to face for bucking the Washington political scene. And he urges all of us to stand by our man for whatever the powers that be throw out next.
