Senator Graham Urges Pro-Sovereignty Republicans Not To Vote For Him

In comments he made during the rollout of his latest illegal alien amnesty effort, Lindsey Graham actually had some excellent advice for Republicans in South Carolina – don’t vote for him. Graham was appearing alongside his fellow 2013 gang of eight amnesty comrade, Democrat Dick Durbin of Illinois – nobody should vote for him either.

In what seems like disingenuous grandstanding, Graham said if people have a different view of amnesty for illegals from his he doesn’t want their vote because he’s not going to be serving them well. If that were the real standard Washington would be a ghost town, but okay.

Graham said, “There are a lot of Republicans who make a point that I agree with, ‘Well if you give these kids,’ who are all great kids, ‘amnesty or legal status, aren’t you enticing more to come?'” Hold on a minute Tinkerbell, they’re not all kids, some of those receiving legal status would be in their thirties, potentially forties. And they’re not all great, they’re individuals, some are better than others.

He says “The key here is to be fair to the eleven million, starting with the DREAMers.” The eleven million is the figure thrown around representing the number of illegals supposedly in the US. According to Graham, the way we are fair to trespassers squatting in our country is to allow them to stay, make them one of us. It’s just “not fair” to enforce our immigration laws.

Sure it cheapens being an American and it’s a slap in the face to those who followed the process, and yes they are rewarded for breaking our laws. But it’s fair, according to Graham, to hold down wages and reduce job opportunities for Americans, “fair” to his corporate masters.

Graham “reassures” Americans that he’s going to do what Reagan couldn’t do, “secure the border, control who gets a job, increase legal immigration so people don’t have to cheat.” That’s supposed to put us in support of Graham’s idiocy? We don’t want big brother Lindsey or the government controlling who gets a job; we want employers and the marketplace doing that through a strong economy. Just eliminate the illegals from the labor pool and fine or lock up their employers for hiring them.

We also don’t want more legal immigration. Competing with an illegal or competing with a low wage legal import for a job is still lowering our standard of living either way. Ask any of the hundreds of thousands of tech workers who have been displaced by cheap Indian labor on H-1B visas. The label is incidental. It’s still a foreign worker taking an American’s job. If anything, the legal, slave labor is more damaging.

Obama made an offer he couldn’t keep and had no right to make in the first place, executive branch amnesty. Graham says it’s “almost a moral decision” to continue the Obama offer, an immoral, anti-American decision designed to create the very conditions of “moral dilemma” that it has. Dump it in the Republicans’ lap and make them look heartless. Either way he and his party see a political opportunity.

Graham says, “To the people who object to this – I don’t want you to vote for me. Because I cannot serve you well.” He asks, “So what have I done? I’ve stopped letting 30% of the people, who are mad about immigration, determine how I behave.

He adds, “To those who feel like you should deport these ‘kids,’ boy I couldn’t disagree with you more.” And to your suggestion, Senator, about not voting for you, this is one of the few times you’ve effectively and persuasively made your case. We couldn’t agree with you more.

    He’s a rino of the highest order. He needs to go along with mccain and a lot more of them that support the liberal bias over conservatives.

    He can be sure he will not get my vote. Now is there a way I can vote him out ?

    • You personally cannot vote him out; but, if you’re in South Carolina, and someone has announced as a primary opponent, get some like-minded people and start block walking. Also, you could set up a donation site for contributions, (I don’t know if anyone has chosen to challenge Lindsay yet, but I sure hope that someone will.)

    As far as I’m concerned anyone who votes for this Fool, is a Traitor to America.

    Senator Graham will not likely be re-elected, for which I am glad. We tried once before to turn him out of office, but the effort failed; he must have done something sometime which endeared him to many voters. For the life of me, I don’t know what it might have been.

  6. Definitely NOT a problem to ever vote for this fool!

  7. “Every sovereign nation has the authority to determine who can be a citizen and who can be present within its borders. As the nation’s former chief law enforcement officer, and a citizen who believes in the rule of law, I cannot condone anyone coming into this country illegally. We are a nation of laws. When people fail to follow the law with impunity, it encourages further disobedience and breeds disrespect for the rule of law; and that is not America.” — Alberto Gonzales, the nation’s 80th Attorney General, speech to the Austin Economics Club.

    Where there is no penalty for violations, what benefit is the law?

    Article 4, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”

    Under our previous leftist president, the feds went so far as to sue states that tried to protect the public health and safety of their citizens when the entity that has a constitutional MANDATE to “provide for the common defense” (e.g., securing our border against a foreign invasion) essentially refused to fulfill those duties. The millions (11-20 million depending on who you ask) of illegal aliens currently in this country without authorization definitely constitute an “invasion;” and, violent crimes, theft and the fraudulent consumption of welfare, medical and educational services by the invaders certainly meets my definition of serious domestic and economic violence being perpetrated against American citizens.

    Is this what Linsay Graham is supporting?

    • Graham can’t, doesn’t serve anyone well besides ‘HIMSELF”—Nothing but a Self-Serving Hypoocrite !

  8. Sooooo, Lindsay Graham said: “To the people who object to this – I don’t want you to vote for me. Because I cannot serve you well.” He asks, “So what have I done? I’ve stopped letting 30% of the people, who are mad about immigration, determine how I behave.”

    Considering that illegal immigration and building the border wall were near the very top of Donald Trump’s campaign issues (just behind job creation), the “30% mad” seems considerably low. However, I agree 100% with the author that if you’re mad about Lindsay’s stance on amnesty for foreign nationals who are present in this country ILLEGALLY, and about his support for the influx of foreign nationals under the H-1B visas, YOU SHOULDN’T SUPPORT HIM! Period. (I sure hope that the voters in South Carolina are paying attention.

    Life is NOT always “fair,” and the law is not always “fair” in the minds of some. That’s reality! However, we are a nation of laws which must be enforced until such time as our representatives see fit to change them.

  9. Doubt he’ll get elected again. Might make a good dog catcher, but that’d be all. We don’t want anyone in office who is ready, willing and able to give our country and our jobs, to illegals. Period.
