At the root of the culture wars lies a fundamental dichotomy in worldviews. Which is more essential to humanity: the individual or the collective?

A recent op-ed in the New York Times chastises Rand Paul for being insufficiently libertarian. His critics are particularly upset over his “hawkish” foreign policy, accusing him of abandoning the ideal of individual liberty. The reverse, however, is true
Distinguished Fellow, Ayn Rand Institute; Author, “In Defense of Selfishness”
The younger Paul knows that in the political big leagues, candidates of conviction who refuse to moderate their message or refuse to adapt to the prevailing contemporaneous political sentiment, are often abandoned at the alter by the electoral consumer.

By and large, Americans have come to believe, although erroneously, that Patriotism is tantamount to support for the Constitutional system of government and the policies instituted by the government. In truth, an American Patriot can love his/her country while opposing the polices of the government.

Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, said Sunday he is looking into whether he can take the recent battle over government surveillance programs to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Im going to be asking all the internet providers and phone companies, Ask your customers and join me in a class-action lawsuit, and if we get 10 million Americans saying we dont want our phone records looked at, then maybe somebody [will] wake up and say things will change in Washington, Mr. Paul said on Fox News Sunday.

On Friday, Mr. Paul introduced a bill that would bar the government from acquiring Americans phone records without a warrant.
Were not talking about going after a terrorist. Im all for that, Mr. Paul said. Get a warrant. Go after a terrorist or a murderer or a rapist.
On Saturday, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper criticized the news media for a rush to publish information based on reckless leaks about government surveillance programs.
Last week, the Guardian newspaper of Great Britain and The Washington Post reported the existence of a surveillance operation known as PRISM and its use by the National Security Agency and the FBI for tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies.
Mr. Clapper said that the program is crucial to protecting the country against terrorist attacks and that the Internet companies are aware of the surveillance.
Service providers supply information to the government when they are lawfully required to do so, he said.

Cats listen to Ron Paul on the Sequester
newly-confirmed Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the US would be sending another $60 million to the rebels seeking to overthrow the Syrian government — in the midst of the sequester “crisis”! Despite the rhetoric, there appears no intention on the part of the government to take our fiscal crisis seriously or abandon the idea that we should run the rest of the world. – Ron Paul March 3, 2013
