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.
