Former Bogota Mayor Steven Lonegan, the front runner for the GOP nomination to succeed the late U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg, issued the following statement regarding the lonegancontroversy between Governor Chris Christie and U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) regarding libertarianism and the federal government’s anti-terrorism measures:

Lonegan: Rand Paul is Defending Our Freedom

Metuchen, NJ – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan today spoke out on efforts by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and others to curtail NSA surveillance.

Lonegan said, “I agree with Gov Christie that we must be vigilant in our defense against terrorism, and this can be achieved without sacrificing our fundamental liberties. Senator Rand Paul is defending our freedom against the overreach of our government into our lives and privacy, and the NSA surveillance scandal clearly highlights this administration’s abuse of its power to invade our private lives. I support Sen Paul’s efforts. “

    Okay, that’s nice to know, but how would Lonegan go about the protection of both? Did he offer a remedy?

    Conservative Rep. Michele Bachmann supports the NSA spying as does President Obama and Governor Christie. Conservative Rep. Louie Gohmert opposes it as does libertarian Rand Paul. While this debate roars on, Chief Justice John Roberts is quietly reshaping the Courts w/judges that make the court more likely to defer to government arguments that domestic spying programs are necessary.

    What position does Dr. Eck have on this issue? I haven’t been able to find out. Maybe it will come up at their debate. Btw, when will that be? I haven’t heard anything.
