        (from linked article)

        Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.), who is considering a run for the White House in 2016, said on “Fox News Sunday” that he is considering asking major U.S. telecommunications firms to ask their customers to join a lawsuit.

        “If we get a million people in a class-action suit, things might change,” Mr. Paul said.

        Mr. Paul didn’t elaborate on the plan, and a spokeswoman for the senator wasn’t immediately available to comment.

        •  And that's typical Randian nonsense. A million s (4+ / 0-)

          aying their records were seized doesn't change anything.  Its still a question of how you show actual harm.  If you can show that, 1 person is enough.  If you can't, 300 million isn't.

          Besides, I'll bet $10 Rand doesn't do squat.  Its just a publicity stunt for this latest incarnation of IcansbePrezinet, Inc. so give me all your money and fame. See, Ron-soI'maracist&crazysowhat?-Paul.

      •  Does Rand Paul use Verizon? (0+ / 0-)

        If so, he has standing.  QED.
