President Barack Obama has so ignored the principles of the Constitution that Americans are now "living under a government of tyranny," Tom DeLay, the former Texas congressman and House Speaker says.

"[T]he Constitution creates a government that reflects the principles given to us in the Declaration of Independence. [It] can only survive and can only carry us into the future if you have people that believe in those principles … and protect the separation of powers," DeLay told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"What we have now is a president who has accelerated the progressive movement that started back with Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson … to such an extent that I now can tell you that we're living under a government of tyranny.

"When you have a president that is cruel and unfair to the people using his powers to undermine the Constitution of the United States [in order] to create a ... monarchy within the presidency, and ignores the Congress or the judicial branch, you have tyranny."

DeLay said there are many examples of Obama's tyrannical ways.

"Redistribution of wealth is tyranny. Taking private property is tyranny. The EPA, just this last week, took a whole town in Wyoming, Riverton, and gave it to the Indian reservation. Ten thousand people and their property and gave it to the Indian reservation," he said.

"I could go on and on [about] what we're living under right now and the American people need to wake up.… We need a revolution for the Constitution."

That revolution has to be spearheaded by Republicans who, thus far, have been asleep at the switch in delivering the message, DeLay believes.

"They have to [get the message out] or we're going to lose…. If we had the election today, there would be an overwhelming tidal wave throwing these Democrats out of office and it's set unless the Republicans screw it up," he said.

"One of the things that disappoints me the most is the messaging coming out of the Republicans. They have a perfect opportunity now, because the difference between the Obamanites and the rest of us is so graphically stark, all you have to do is talk about it and the American people say, 'Oh yeah, now I get it,' and they'll throw these people out."

DeLay says he was not in favor of the clean debt ceiling bill that was pushed by House Speaker John Boehner, but understands why he didn't demand compromises from the Democrats.

"Unfortunately, the Republicans over the last few years have become so fractured that you can't get anything done and when you give up before you even fight, when you surrender before you fight, what happens is you can't hold those people together and lead them in a particular direction," he said.

"So he didn’t have the votes but what happened over in the Senate told me that they had the votes to get something…. The people, where I live, they just want to see a fight for what you believe in. Fight for it. Even if you lose, fight."

DeLay says he is urging Republicans to stop proposing to "fix" the Affordable Care Act.

"Obamacare is unconstitutional. There is nothing in the Constitution that gives the federal government the authority to regulate healthcare insurance. And there's no reason for us to fix it. There's no reason to have it," he said.

"We need to get through this election and we need to elect people that understand, number one, the Constitution, number two, that Obamacare is unconstitutional and it needs to be stripped out of the federal government.
