Rand Paul on the Bill of Rights Day, meeting with Mike Pence and Steven Mnuchin

On Thursday, Republican Senator from Kentucky, Dr Rand Paul published an Op-Ed on Breitbart entitled Restore the Bill of Rights on the 225th anniversary of the adoption of the Bill of Rights.

In the article, Paul calls for a return to a limited government that honors the principles contained in that momentous document and explains why we must defend the entire Bill of Rights.

“We have the Bill of Rights precisely because the Founding Fathers knew government can’t resist stretching its limits.  Much like Benjamin Franklin’s reported statement that we had a Republic if we could ‘keep it,’ the Bill of Rights relies on the people holding government accountable,” Sen Paul writes.

“When some in government say ‘of course we can,’ you and I are supposed to use the Bill of Rights to say, ‘No, you can’t.'”

Sen Paul also met with Vice President-elect Mike Pence and Treasury Secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin this week.

“I look forward to working with the Vice President-elect to grow our economy, create more jobs in Kentucky, and repeal burdensome government regulations!”, Paul said on Friday after their meeting.

Earlier in the week, after meeting with Mr. Mnuchin, the Senator said, “I enjoyed the opportunity to meet with some of President-elect Trump’s Cabinet nominees this week, including Treasury Secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin.

“I’m excited about our upcoming chance to create a vibrant job market and grow a thriving economy!”
