Ted Cruz on "76 Lawless Obama Actions"

      It is extremely important for the citizens of this country to realize the power grab that has taken/is taking place in the White House.  If we are to save the country we must elect leaders who will follow the Constitution in making and enforcing laws.  It is very important to do all we can to get the word out about what is happening behind our backs and to make sure every law-abiding citizen votes this year and in 2016!

Sen. Ted Cruz had this to say which is an excerpt from an article on Breitbart News.  You can read it in its entirety here.  This is outrageous!  What are we thinking as we allow this to happen?!!  Who will stop this flagrant flaunting of our Constitutional law?

"An imperial presidency threatens the liberty of every citizen," Cruz said. "Because when a president can pick and choose which laws to follow and which to ignore, he is no longer a president."
The Senator then listed the 76 supposedly lawless power grabs by Obama, which were each placed in one of the following categories: Governing by Executive Fiat, National Security, Obamacare, Economy, Executive Nominees and Personnel, Free Speech and Privacy, Other Lawless Acts, Other Abuses of Power. 
Here are just 10 of Obama's actions that Cruz took issue with: 
"Implemented portions of the DREAM Act, which Congress rejected, by executive action." 
"Killed four Americans overseas in counter-terrorism operations without judicial process."
"Extended the deadline to enroll in Obamacare." 
"Illegally delayed Obamacare verification of eligibility for healthcare subsidies."
"Illegally required people to violate their faith via the Obamacare contraception mandate." 
"Illegally targeted conservative groups for heightened IRS scrutiny."
"Secretly obtained phone records from staff at the Associated Press."
"Threatened to arrest military priests for practicing their faith during the partial government shutdown." 
"Illegally sold thousands of guns to criminals, in the operation known as Fast and Furious, and then refused to comply with congressional subpoenas about the operation." 
"Illegally revealed the existence of sealed indictments in the Benghazi investigation."
