I signed on to the class action suit filed by Sen. Rand Paul that challenges this mass surveillance with blanket warrants in federal court. I believe the courts, not the legislative branch, is the proper venue to determine the lengths to which the government can invade the privacy of the public by trying to tweek the 4th amendment protections against unreasonable searches by getting blanket warrants. No matter what people may think of Rand Paul, I think he is going in the proper direction to resolve this issue, because this is the realm of the Judiciary.

I'd largely agree, except in the situation like this where Congress created the FISA courts and gave them special exemptions from due process.

It's better to have a two pronged assault and take it from both directions. But, congress usually doesn't even admit they made mistakes in legislation, much less fix them. The law itself isn't in question, the constitutionality of the law is, and that's what the Supreme Court is for.
