Trey Gowdy is one of the most constitutional voices in the US House of Representatives to date.
His speech, from when Obama was still in office, is one of the the most famous speeches ever made on the House floor, and has made its share of rounds on social media over the past few weeks.
Perhaps it will change their stance on ‘Gowdy the Great’, and American politics for good!
In this speech, he proves why we as a nation must be constitutionally literate and bound by the rule of law.
He also stated:
“The House of Representatives does not exist to pass ‘suggestions,’” Gowdy said. “We do not exist to pass ‘ideas.’ We make law. And while you are free to stand and clap, when any president comes into this hallowed chamber and promises to do it ‘with or without you,’ I will never stand and clap when any president – no matter if he is from your party or mine – promises to make us a constitutional anomaly and afterthought. We make law!”
