The Constitution embodies American principles that men and women have fought and died to protect. We swore an oath to it. Mr. Speaker, I encourage my colleagues to reflect on the damage that CISPA, the Patriot Act, and the NDAA have wrought on our civil liberties, and implore my fellow members to uphold the constitutional rights they swore to protect. Don’t yield one inch.
— Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY)
Congressman [score]Thomas Massie[/score] (R-KY) is an outspoken and stiff-spined conservative legislator with a brilliant mind and a quirky personality. He has fought long and hard to cut wasteful government spending, lower our taxes, and to destroy the entangling regulations that have decimated our economy.
Three years ago Rep. Massie gave a short speech, wherein he laid bare both the problems and the answers that face America today… and no surprise, most of the fault can be found in Washington, D.C.
