Lindsey Graham's Advocacy of National ID and Fingerprinting Must Be Last Straw



According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, Lindsey Graham, working with Senator Charles Schumer to craft yet another immigration bill, wants you and every worker in America to be fingerprinted before you may hold a job. The fingerprints, along with other biometric information, would be embedded in a mandatory ID card.

In other words, because federal officials have failed to address the nation's criminal immigration problem, you and all Americans will be treated like criminals.


In this regard, may we suggest an important project to the South Carolina Tea Party Movement?

Fewer than twenty states currently allow for the recall of federal officials. Unfortunately, South Carolina is not one of them. We strongly recommend that South Carolina not wait until 2014 to term limit its rogue United States Senator. South Carolina needs and deserves faithful representation now.

Let's amend the South Carolina Constitution as soon as possible and send Lindsey home to Seneca.
So urgent is the need for South Carolina to have two United States Senators representing its interests, we are providing a draft amendment to the state constitution:
Be It Enacted by the People of the State of South Carolina the right to recall any Federally elected officeholder elected by the people of the state of South Carolina. A recall election is required within 45 days of verification of signatures equaling 10% of the votes cast in the last election of the office being recalled. Citizens seeking the recalled office will have 15 days from the time the recall initiative if verified to place their name on the ballot for election.

At the time of the recall vote, voters will vote to recall as well as vote for a new office holder if the recall initiative is successful. A run-off election if necessary will consist of those receiving the three highest number of votes with the winner being elected to fill the remainder of the term recalled.

If the recall is successful, the person recalled is immediately stripped of all the authority to represent the people of the state of South Carolina and must vacate federal office space within 24 hours.

I agree 100% with this amendment to our constitution. It's about time WE, THE PEOPLE were properly represented. Renegades like Graham have too much free-reign and too little accountability to US, THE PEOPLE. He and Schumer's new immigration bill proposal is placing us one step closer to having a mark stamped on our forehead. First a fingerprint, eventually the mark. We best take back control now.

This ID card feels way too communist. Soon we will have to show it to buy bread or send our child to school. I agree with the above amendment. Is Glenn McConnell on board?

The people in the great state of South Carolina need to jump all over this and get it moving to have Senator Graham removed from office! He is a blight to the GOP and most times, anti-conservative! The members of GOP are not going to remove him or do a darn thing to rid the party of the RINOS that We, the People are onto, so it will be up to We, the People, to do what the GOP lack the spine to get done! REMOVE RINOS! I can assure you, if word gets out that the people in SC are moving to recall Senator Grahamnesty, there will be LEGIONS of conservatives from across the country that will stand with you on the effort! GO FOR IT! Graham needs to go!

I never thought I would live to see our rights so blatantly disregarded. Has Lindsey read the constitution? Has Obama won his heart? Another example why we need term limits. Throw the bums out.
