GOP Rep. Paul Broun is informing donors that he will enter Georgia’s open-seat Senate race, with an official announcement expected shortly.Broun appears likely to become the first Republican to enter the race to succeed retiring GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss
Hope Georgia says - Hell No!
Last week, Congressman Paul Broun (R-Lunatic, GA) pronounced evolution, embryology, and the Big Bang theory, “lies straight from the pit of hell”.
In his speech, Broun claimed that as a legislator he takes direction from the Bible:
And what I’ve come to learn is that it’s the manufacturer’s handbook, is what I call it. It teaches us how to run our lives individually, how to run our families, how to run our churches. But it teaches us how to run all of public policy and everything in society. And that’s the reason as your congressman I hold the Holy Bible as being the major directions to me of how I vote in Washington, D.C., and I’ll continue to do that.
"I don't know whatConstitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it's not this one," Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) said on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jim Galloway. "I think the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one. He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer.
"We can't be lulled intocomplacency," Broun said. "You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I'm not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I'm saying is there is the potential."
BROUN: I tell ya, we’ve got somenew problems in Washington. Big problems. Just today, Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta said people in America are not eating enough fruits and vegetables. They want to give all the power to the federal government to force you to eat more fruits and vegetables. This is what the federal, CDC, they gonna be calling you to make sure you eat fruits and vegetables, every day. This is socialism of the highest order!
BROUN: Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson started this process of socializing America, and they did it with the, Woodrow Wilson, particularly, pushes the 16th amendment that taxes income directly, and the 17th amendment that allows the direct elect of US senators, because the US senators intially were supposed to represent the states. [...] I’d like to see the 16th amendment and the 17th amendment to be repealed finally, and that’s going to be a long process.
16th - Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes
17th - The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each state, elected by the people (He wants them appointed by corporate controlled legislatures)
BROUN: We have created this hugedebt. […] We’ve got to stop the outrageous spending that’s going on. We hear the CBO says well if we don’t raise the debt limit, it’s going to put so many people out of work, I don’t remember then number, I think it’s 250,000 or something, are gonna be put out of work. Well those are gonna be government employees that are put out of work. There are a lot of government employees that need to go find a real job!
HOST: Defunding Planned Parenthood and defunding NPR and PBS, some might say the Republicans are doing the same thing, telling people what to do with their lives.
BROUN: No, ma’am, absolutely not. In fact, the thing is, we don’t have constitutional authority under the original intent of the Constitution to fund Planned Parenthood or NPR.
“I am an avid hunter and outdoorsman,” Broun says, “and I strongly support the Constitution’s Second Amendment right to bear arms and will defend the rights of law abiding citizens to purchase, use, and keep firearms.
“I vigorously oppose all attemptsto restrict the Second Amendment [and] believe that any law – whether at the local, state, or federal level – which restricts or infringes upon law abiding citizens’ ability to own a firearm is unconstitutional and should be repealed,” Broun said.
Broun said his cause is farbigger, and tied the conversation to President Barack Obama’s inauguration Monday.
“I think my role is to uphold support and defend our Constitution,” he said. “… The Constitution I uphold and defend is the one I carry in my pocket all the time, the U.S. Constitution. I don’t know what Constitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it’s not this one. I think the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one. He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer.”
But, as CBS asked, does he really mean to say that the President of the United States doesn’t believe in the Constitution?
“Well he doesn’t,” said Broun. “When I was sworn into the Marine Corps in 1967, when I was sworn into Congress, I swore to uphold the Constitution against enemies both foreign and domestic.
“We have a lot of domestic enemies of the Constitution. Those who want to pervert it, those who want to change it. There’s some that are in black robes and sitting on federal benches all across this country. There are Democrats and Republicans, liberals and even conservatives that pervert the Constitution according to the original intent of our Founding Fathers.”
