U.S. Sen. Rand Paul To Deliver Speech At Republican National Convention

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Below is an EMBARGOED copy of Sen. Rand Paul’s speech this evening at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. The embargo extends until Sen. Paul speaks at approximately 7:45 p.m. this evening. A full transcript of the speech follows:

“When the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare, the first words out of my mouth were: I still think it is unconstitutional!

The leftwing blogs were merciless. Even my wife said — can’t you please count to ten before you speak?

So, I’ve had time now to count to ten and, you know what — I still think it’s unconstitutional!

Do you think Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas have changed their minds?

I think if James Madison, himself — the father of the Constitution — were here today he would agree with me: the whole damn thing is still unconstitutional!

This debate is not new and it’s not over. Hamilton and Madison fought from the beginning about how government would be limited by the enumerated powers.

Madison was unequivocal. The powers of the federal government are few and defined. The power to tax and spend is restricted by the enumerated powers.

So, how do we fix this travesty of justice? There’s only one option left.

We have to have — a new President!

When I heard the current President say, “You didn’t build that,” I was first insulted, then I was angered, then I was saddened that anyone in our country, much less the President of the United States, believes that roads create business success and not the other way around.
