If Rand Paul takes his pre-debate message to the actual GOP debate Tuesday evening, viewers can expect loads of fireworks between him and fellow Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio.
On Tuesday afternoon in Las Vegas the Kentucky senator spoke to an intimate group of supporters about topics likely to dominate the final Republican prime-time debate of 2015, of which Paul unexpectedly made it into following a last-minute Fox News poll released Sunday morning.
"Anybody here want to trade your liberty for a false sense of security?" Paul asked the crowd, many of whom responded "No!" while others chanted "President Paul."
The libertarian-leaning senator then listed off a litany of examples of government-led national security programs aimed at collecting Americans' personal information.
