Posted on 09/02/2013 10:45:23 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
SPARTENBURG -- South Carolina Tea Party groups have drafted a resolution containing a 29-point case to replace Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) with a Senator who is more conservative, Breitbart News has learned.
Local Tea Party leaders provided the document, a resolution that can be passed by local and state GOP committees, to Breitbart News. It argues that Grahams activities in the U.S. Senate are a violation of the principles of the South Carolina Republican Party platform. Graham is up for reelection next year.
Items highlighted by Tea Partiers include: Grahams support of providing weapons to Al Quaeda / Muslim Brotherhood Revolutionaries in Syria, how Graham [s]upported amnesty but not border control, how he supported NSA spying on private American citizens, abridging the First Amendment for those who criticize the government, restrictions on the Second Amendment, Obama's drone program against American citizens, subordinating American sovereignty to the United Nations, giving foreign aid to terrorist governments in the Middle East, granting members of the Muslim Brotherhood high level positions in the US government, giving taxpayer money to international organizations, giving taxpayer money for excessive foreign aid generally, not just to terrorist governments in the Middle East, restricting the First Amendment rights to criticize Islamic radicalism, Obama's radical appointments to the Supreme Court, liberal proposal to nationalize banks, Obama's energy taxes and Cap and Trade, bailouts for financial institutions (TARP), and bailouts for independent mortgage institutions (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac).
Other points include how Graham opposed principled application of free trade policies, making Bush tax cuts permanent, President Bush's conservative nominee from South Carolina to the Court of Appeals, and medical malpractice tort reform. The Tea Partiers also rip Graham for siding with Democrats on government regulation to combat climate change, having [p]raised Hillary Clintons prospects for higher office, having [f]ailed to...

I went to a Clemson game today where Graham was given some sort of plaque honoring his support of the University. He was there to accept it and when they said his name he was booed. He’s in trouble in the upstate for sure.
Thank you for the update.
Here’s part of an email I got from Linda yesterday:
What a whirlwind week!
Lindsey Graham 7 cities. 5 days. Thousands of constituents. 598 miles in my 2005 Ford Crown Victoria (so the odometer is now over 228,000!).
It kicked off with the 34th Chapin Labor Day Parade, where over 50 volunteers spent their holiday in the heat walking with me, waving signs, and showing their support for my re-election campaign. What a great way to begin the week!
From there we went across the state talking with constituents, local business leaders, elected officials, military leaders, and Republican activists in Chapin, Goose Creek, Sumter, Charleston, Summerville, Mount Pleasant, and Greenville. We even squeezed in the season finale baseball game of the Charleston Riverdogs! (To view photos from some of the events, click the linked city name.)
We talked about a wide range of issues including Obamacare, foreign policy, and the devastating across-the-board cuts to our military known as sequestration.
But I heard one major theme over and over: President Obama’s failed policies are hurting our state and country. And I completely agree.
Obamacare is a complete disaster, and it’s hurting our economy. I am a proud co-sponsor of Senator Ted Cruz’s bill to defund Obamacare, and I plan to re-introduce legislation later this month to allow states to opt-out of Obamacare (click here to learn more).
President Obama’s failed foreign policy, which seems to be “don’t be ‘Bush’ at all costs,” is hurting our country, emboldening Radical Islamic terrorists, and confusing our allies throughout the world. President Obama’s weakness is the reason our options left in Syria are bad and worse. America needs to lead, and we need bold and decisive leaders like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.
It was great to see so many people across South Carolina this week, and it’s an honor to represent you in the United States Senate.
Isn’t it interesting that he praises himself after the visits? I never received advance notice of these visits. Clearly, Linda has no desire to meet people like me on the campaign trail.
