    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but ABC News notes that detaining Paul was a violation of the Constitution:

    The U.S. Constitution actually protects federal lawmakers from detention while they’re on the way to the capital.

    “The Senators and Representatives…shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same….” according to Article I, Section 6.
    There is also an interview with Paul on the website, and based on what he's saying, the TSA we acting like asses.

    Which only demonstrates that the TSA is operating outside the boundaries of the Constitution of the United States of America.


    Rand Paul is being a dramatist, and picking a quarrel to highlight an issue - you can argue that he is being a drama queen if you like, or argue that he is using his position to highlight an infringement of our rights if you wish. Either way you shoot is immaterial to the fact that he is also legally correct.

    Airline Security. Sky Marshalls, for example - paid for by the respective airlines.
