“This isn’t just a choice between Mary Landrieu and Bill Cassidy. It’s a choice between whether this generation is willing to do what it needs to do to share that dream.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today spoke on the Senate floor harkening back to Cicero’s famous warning to the citizens of Rome. Over 2,000 years later, the words are powerfully relevant to our current President’s lawlessness. When, President Obama, do you mean to cease abusing our patience?

The audacity of this President to think he can completely destroy the Rule of Law with the stroke of a pen is unfathomable to me. It is unconstitutional, it is cynical, and it violates the will of the American people. Our Republic will not stand if we tolerate a President who is set upon the complete destruction of the Rule of Law.
