Cruz: Obama Administration "Willing To Circumvent Our Constitutional Rights"

SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX): Hi, I’m Ted Cruz and this is the Freedom Minute.

The Bill of Rights is at the heart of our system of government.

Yet the Obama Administration, sadly, often seems willing to circumvent our constitutional rights.

Whether it’s the First Amendment and the seizing of journalists’ phone records, or threatening to punish armed service members who speak openly about their faith;

Whether it’s the Second Amendment and the Administration’s desire to restrict our right to keep and bear arms;

Or whether it’s the Fourth and Fifth Amendments and the Administration’s policy on drone use against American citizens.

And now we learn that the government has been collecting millions of U.S. telephone records. While the details are unclear, this fits into a troubling pattern of disregarding the Bill of Rights.

Congress must do its part to rein in these abuses, but citizens of every stripe need to make their voices heard.

I’m Ted Cruz and this is the Freedom Minute.
