Tea Party-favorite Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been a major thorn in the establishment’s side and from the looks of it, 2014 is going to be no different.
Less than two weeks into the New Year, he is continuing his calls for the repeal of Obamacare, the abolition of the IRS, and an audit of the Federal Reserve.
At yesterday’s Freedom Rally in Allen, TX he said, “The American people — and only the American people — can and will turn this country around. In the last couple of years, we have seen something extraordinary. We have seen the rise of the grassroots; we’ve seen it here in Texas. You inspire me.”
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz believes liberty is under assault, opportunity is crumbling and President Barack Obama’s administration is “utterly lawless.”
But he declared Saturday that he remains full of optimism about the future. […]
He continued his crusade Saturday, calling on supporters nationwide to get involved.
“When the American people stand up and hold our elected officials accountable, it scares the living daylights out of them,” he said. “And liberty is never safer than when politicians are terrified.
“If we keep standing up, we are going to pull this country … back from the abyss … back to the Constitution that protects every American,” he said. “That’s what we’re doing together.”
On Friday in Austin, he continued his attack, saying the current president is lawless, dangerous and terrifying.
And on Saturday — amid cheers, standing ovations and flag waving — he continued.
“Liberty is under assault … in this country like never before,” Cruz said. “We have a president [who seems as though he] is going down the Bill of Rights trying to violate them one at a time.”
Cruz said that among Democratic leaders in Washington, D.C., he sees a “consistent pattern of lawlessness, the contempt for rule of law.”
And he said the Affordable Care Act is a mistake.
“This is not an issue about right or left. This is not an issue about conservative or Republican,” Cruz said. “To be honest, there ought to be Democrats lining up” in opposition to it.
“We need to repeal every single word of Obamacare,” he said, adding that other changes need to be made as well, including abolishing the Internal Revenue Service, auditing the Federal Reserve and repealing the Dodd-Frank Act.
Last year, Sen. Cruz gave a 21-hour speech about why we need to repeal Obamacare, emphasizing that Washington DC has failed to do their part in listening to the American people. “Bigger than the problem of Obamacare is the problem that Washington is no longer listening to the American people,” he said.
He also openly called for the abolition of the IRS, saying “We need to abolish the IRS and make the tax code fairer and flatter. Taxes should fit on a postcard.”
Cruz joined Rand Paul’s (R-KY) push for “at the very least allow[ing] a vote on the Audit of the Fed bill.” He continued, “The Federal Reserve has expanded our money supply by trillions, benefiting Wall Street but making life harder for millions of Americans struggling to make ends meet. Never-ending quantitative easing threatens to undermine the dollar and to drive up prices on everyday goods from food to gasoline to the basic necessities of life. We need to bring transparency to the Fed, so the American people can understand the scope and consequences of its policies.”
