Rand Paul: I promise you there’ll be no rock left unturned to try and stop Obama from usurping the Constitution

The Right Scoop

CBN NEWS – The Obama administration has suggested using an executive order to bypass Congress if it can’t get the gun control measures it wants.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told CBN News that members of Congress are prepared to fight such an order.

“I’m against having a king,” Paul said. “I think having a monarch is what we fought the American Revolution over and someone who wants to bypass the Constitution, bypass Congress — that’s someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch.”

“I’ve been opposed to executive orders, even with Republican presidents. But one that wants to infringe on the Second Amendment, we will fight tooth and nail,” he continued.

“And I promise you, there’ll be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop him from usurping the Constitution, running roughshod over Congress,” he vowed. “And you will see one heck of a debate if he decides to try to do this.”

    Whaddya mean “TRYING” to stop Obama?

    You don’t try… you either do or you don’t. This “Awwww, we tried…” BS has to stop.

    Stand firm, or resign and let someone with true resolve for the integrity of out Constitution take your place.

    Sometimes I feel like I went to sleep in 2013, woke up in 1773 and England has a mulatto king.

    At what point will these legislators return to their home states and offer to lead/organize the militia?
    The political system is broken. The judicial system is not trusted.
    At what point does a politician’s “Oh well, I tried. Send me more money to keep up the fight” rhetoric ring hollow even in their own ears?
    I’m tired of the charade.
    Point me to Buckman’s Tavern. The tree of liberty goes thirsty…

    Screw a debate. How about DEFEND. Defend the Constitution and our liberties. You are subject to us and the Constitution , not some Marxist that should immediately be impeached upon too many grounds to cover in a paragraph.

    Obama won’t issue an EO. All he needs is patience and one more Supreme Court justice,and he can have the Court gut the Second Amendment. The SC decision in 2010 which affirmed the right to bear arms was a 5-4 decision.

    if our electred reps showed this kind of attitude during the obamacare debate we would not be discussing dictated gun control now.

    obama is directly responsible for the current rash of mass killings and suicides because of his poor economic recovery.

    obama is killing our kids with debt!!!

    Both sides of mouth: “fight tooth and nail” vs. “one heck of a debate.” This is what career politicians say, not freedom fighters.

    How about just, “NO!”

    This congress that ignores the Constitution’s natural born citizen clause is going to do exactly WHAT?

    This congress that passed Obamacare without reading the bill is going to exactly WHAT?

    This congress that ignores documented election fraud is going to do exactly WHAT?

    This congress that enables department of homeland security’s 1.5 billion round hollow-point ammo purchase is going to do exactly WHAT?

    WHAT?

    I’ve been informed that January 19th, Gun Appreciation Day, is Gen. Robert E. Lee’s birthday.

    For you public-school-educated yankees, he led the FIRST civil war, the War Against Northern Aggression.

    Rand Paul may actually mean what he says, however, the GOP is a pathetic, spineless, gutless embarrassment and nothing more than the right wing of the Democratic party these days. This has got to be the absolute worst, dumbest and most corrupt political class this country has ever had. I loathe them all.

    Go ahead and pass whatever unconstitutional crap your illegal administration wants. We’ll ignore it.
    If you persist, we will defend.
    F obama!

    As they often do deceivers used language to fool the people. The first amendment states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…” When the constitution was written the word “ideology” did not exist. Had it been the first amendment would have stated “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or ideology…” I have yet to hear a conservative or anyone in the conservative media make this point.
