"I think there are always going to be people who succumb to fear and trade their liberty for security," Paul said in the radio interview.

He went on to suggest the majority of Americans are against warrantless surveillance of U.S. citizens.

"I'm not against the NSA. I'm not against spying on terrorists, but I am against collecting all the records of Americans," said Paul, adding, "I think the American public's with me on this."
