Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul believes the government can fight terrorism without violating the constitutional rights of American citizens.

In an interview with Fox News' Eric Bolling, Paul said, “The question here is whether or not, constitutionally, you can have a single warrant apply to millions of people. So we thought, what better way to illustrate the point than having hundreds of thousands of Americans sign up for a class-action suit.”

In a post on his Facebook page, Paul indicated more than 250,000 Americans have joined his lawsuit to date. According to a message on his 2016 campaign website, Paul is looking for millions more "to sue to take back our rights."

"Recent news reports revealed that Barack Obama's NSA is looking through billions of our emails and phone records every day," he wrote. "I'm OUTRAGED -- and I'm going to do everything I can to END this madness."

Paul has also asked Internet service providers and phone companies to join the class-action lawsuit.
