Big Mistake: Congressman Tells Tea Party Activists That Fighting for the Constitution Is a Losing Battle (Video)

Tea Party activists didn’t appreciate Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) telling them, “if all you do is stand for the Constitution you will lose.”
Watch the fireworks:

From the video:

What happens when a Republican Congressman tells Conservative Activists that fighting for the Constitution is a losing battle? Watch the fireworks as Unite In Action’s Director of Legal Affairs KrisAnne Hall and 912 Project National Co-Chair, Unite In Action President, Stephani Scruggs respond.

This took place at The National Republican Club of Capitol Hill, commonly known as the Capitol Hill Club, in Washington DC on June 28th, 2012 with Michelle Bachmann, Rep Gosar and several other members of congress as well as The Tea Party.Net. with syndicated talk show host Rusty Humphries as the MC. It was broadcast on LiveStream by The Tea Party.Net

I’m sure Rep. Gosar would like to take back that statement.

    This is what happens in Washington. The Constitutional standard is irrelevant when any legislation is written. It passes, and we for someone to object thoughtfully enough for SOTUS to hear it. If SOTUS decides not to follow the Constitution you get what happened with Obamacare. We are barrelling along to EUGENICS for all, and we get one more chance for a legislative do over, but only after control of two houses of Congress and the White House.

    And it all started with Congress not doing it’s job, and SOTUS not doing it’s job. This is a desperate time when our elected officials are only there for the power and money and not there for us.

    Every man or woman who laid down their life in defense of our national sovereignty, fought the ultimate battle on behalf of our constitution. All those white crosses and stars are placed with care and respect over the graves because even the grounds keepers know what this fool can’t grasp.

    Every president that takes the oath swears to protect the constitution.

    Do we really need to remind republicans that the Constitution is the law of the land? That it is God’s gift of individual liberty codified in man’s laws.

    It’s going to take some time to clean house. Tea Party lives.

    Yes, he did sign his own pink slip but, what about all the other politicans who think the same but don’t say it outright. The all took an oath to defend the Constitution – didn’t it mean anything? Vote them all out and establish term limits.

    Alternate title of video:

    “Why do we have to get rid of RINO’s ?…because they’re weak and sold us out”

    Rino’s are to busy worrying about their political future,instead of America’s future

    #10, 11, 12.

    Exactly. Next Tea Party at your local voting precinct. Ding, ding.

    Not really. The district is nearly evenly split between Pubs and Dems. The Pubs aren’t necessarily fiscal and small government conservatives.

  • dwd

    That’s the one thing you’re SUPPOSED to do, stand for and defend the Constitution.

    Vote him out.

  • progressoverpeace

    “believe” in the Constitution? This Gosar idiot is wrong ten ways from Sunday. The Constitution is not something to be “believed” in; there’s an amendment process, after all. It’s law to be adhered to. The Supreme Law.

    Anyone in Congress who doesn’t want to adhere to the Constitution needs to be ejected, since they are violating their oaths of office. But … I’m sure this fool doesn’t take anything so silly as an “oath” seriously, either.

  • Mannie

    I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same …
