    Rand Paul is filing a class action lawsuit against the NSA

    Well this should be interesting.

    He's been threatening to do it for months, but it looks like Rand Paul is finally ready to sue the Obama administration for the NSA's mass surveillance programs.
    Paul will announce on Fox News Friday evening that he plans to file a class-action lawsuit against Barack Obama and National Intelligence Director James Clapper over the NSA's bulk metadata collection, making good on his promise to take the president to court over revelations of the spy agency's expansive domestic snooping. Although no court documents have been filed in the case yet, Paul's advisers told Daily Intelligencer that the Senator's legal team is currently drafting a complaint claiming that the searches violate Americans' Fourth Amendment rights, and plans to file the suit "soon," likely in D.C. District Court.

    Rand Paul's strongest detractors in this action will, as usual, be the Republican establishment RINOs, who simply want to be left alone to surrender in peace and quiet.

    The ones who have been big supporters of the NSA for a long time. Peter King ran to FOX news to spew his angst over the NYT supporting Snowden and called Snowden a traitor and the NYT his accomplace. Now he'll have to run back over to include Paul in that.

    Well I have to say I am not normally a fan of Rand compared to his father, but in this case I must applaud him.

    Rank will have trouble getting reelected Senator, just like Turtle.
    Especially with PPACA such a success in a state where it is not sabotaged .
