RE: Rand Paul
The NDAA is pased every year so if you're just looking at votes on that, you'll be disappointed no matter what.
The primary section in question says:

DETAIN COVERED PERSONS PURSUANT TO THE
AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE.

Really? It's unconstitutional to hold people, who are basically POWs, when we continue to conduct military actions in accordance with the 9/11 Authorization? Hmm. Alrighty then.
