“Are you allowed to use profanity? Are we in the free speech zone?”

GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul did not mince words in a campaign stop at George Mason University, Virginia Thursday, labeling a call for increased government surveillance as “Bullshit”.

“So when they stand up on television and says ‘the tragedy in Paris means you have to give up your liberty. We need more phone surveillance.’ Bullshit.” Paul told a crowed of students who enthusiastically cheered.

“Are you allowed to use profanity? Is that part of the– are we in the free speech zone?” the Libertarian leaning Paul quipped.

“But here’s the thing is, they are collecting your phone records as we speak. They did not miss a beat. And even though we voted on reform, all of your phone records are still being collected and stored in Utah.” Paul explained, referring to the NSA’s bulk data collection program.

“Did it stop the attack in Paris? Not one iota.” Paul concluded.

Paul again stands out from the GOP crowd on the issue of government surveillance, being the only candidate, aside from Ted Cruz, to express a desire to stop the NSA spying on Americans.

Other candidates such as Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush have called for increasing the NSA’s spying.

“I will fight to restore the Patriot Act’s metadata program to ensure we have the ability to connect the dots between known foreign terrorists and potential operatives here in the United States,” Bush said in a speech at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C., this week.
