Rand Paul and Constitutional Conservatism

Senator Rand Paul was recently detained by the TSA (yes, the same TSA that has yet to accomplish anything substantial) for refusing to forfeit his fourth amendment rights.  Supposedly there was a body scanner "anomaly", however the only anomaly is that a member of Congress is actually trying to uphold an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States".

Senator Paul also recently returned five-hundred thousand dollars from his office budget to the Treasury which leads one to believe he was very serious about his budget proposal to cut five-hundred billion dollars in government waste/spending.  This is in strong contrast to the wasteful spending seen under Nancy Pelosi's tenure as Speaker, and the current administration's disastrous and frivolous spending in the name of "recovery".

The excited argument about the US tax rules has caused most to wonder whether it can ever be changed. It is unfair, it doesn't matter what side on the argument you fall on. And while politicians inform us they've kept our income taxes reduced federally, state legislatures (from either side) have already been getting new solutions to make up the decrease in revenue. How creative is your own state?
