Rand Paul urges conservatives to elect 'lovers of liberty'

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) pauses in his remarks as guests applaud at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Oxon HillBy John Whitesides WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican Rand Paul, a potential 2016 White House contender, on Friday accused President Barack Obama of restricting civil liberties and urged conservatives to “stand with me” in electing a president who would protect personal rights. In a starkly libertarian speech, the senator from Kentucky condemned National Security Agency electronic surveillance, detention without trial programs and what he said were other encroachments on civil rights under the Obama administration. But unlike other Republican speakers at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference, Paul said the issues were bigger than the two major political parties. I’m talking about electing lovers of liberty,” Paul told the cheering crowd.
