Senator Paul is a proven American hero for a number of reasons.
He is a leader of courage and integrity.
He knows and loves the Constitution, and he is one of the few politicians in Washington D.C. who honors his oath to uphold and defend it.
Senator Paul speaks out boldly and eloquently, knowing he will face powerful opposition, even from members of his own party.
When he sees a violation of constitutional principles, Rand Paul clearly condemns the violation, but he doesn't just express his opinion. He cites the Constitution. He teaches Americans what the Constitution says, where it says it, and why it's important to honor the Constitution.
Then he presents a plan to remedy the problem. In this case he plans to invite Americans to join a class action lawsuit. He told Chris Wallace, "I'm going to be asking all the internet providers and all of the phone companies: ask your customers to join me in a class action lawsuit. If we get ten million Americans saying we don't want our phone records looked at, then maybe someone will wake up and something will change in Washington."
