Senator Rand Paul: "I Am Against Having a King"... "Obama Is Not King."Submitted by d4chin on Mon, 01/14/2013 - 21:12
In a CBN interview earlier today, Kentucky Senator, and possible 2016 presidential candidate, Rand Paul, expressed his concerns over president Obama acting as a king and using executive orders to deal with the debt ceiling and gun control without due constitutional process.
“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.”
