South Carolina Tea Partiers
Draft Resolution to
Replace Lindsey Graham

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 9/2/2013 11:01:10 AM

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 Graham’s 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: Graham’s support of providing weapons to “Al Quaeda / Muslim Brotherhood

I wish them success!

Just remember you need to replace him with someone who is electable or don´t bother. We saw what happened in Missouri , Del and Nev in the last election cycle.

#4 is right, of course. There is no productive result if the nominee cannot win a sure GOP seat. #8, this has nothing to do with the "establishment".

I would even take it a step further in the case of the worst RINO´s and oppose them in the general election if they are not unseated in the primary. The reason for this is to send a message to the other rino´s that their plans to fight only in the primaries, get elected out of horror for what the Rats will do and then betray their base no longer protects them. The tea party is about 20% of the electorate yet it has almost no influence on policy because it´s votes go to support the likes of Lindsey Graham who is more afraid of the other side than of his own base. This well established pattern must end! The tea party vote has been co-opted in support of squish moderation. Let the squishes support the tea party candidate for a change. Party unity should give some support to its biggest group or everything will collapse! Each Rino casualty has a ripple effect which will help correct this imbalance in representation! If Lindsay is replaced by a Rat the direct negative consequence is negligible but breaking this pattern is positive. Let´s not view these races in isolation!

Sorry to disagree but it has everything to do with the establishment Republicans. They did more to harm Palin then the Dems and the media combined and now they are starting on Cruz. I will say this until I´m banned from the site, there is no point in running/electing moderate Republicans who allow the Dems to run roughshod over them and then blame them for everything that goes wrong. Now we have Ryan and Rubio who were the darlings of the party not long ago flipping on immigration and going wobbly on 0bamacare. As for DE, NE, and Missouri; if the feckless crew who runs the party had given them just the slightest bit of support and backing they could have survived. But no they cannibalized their own so they could appear to be reasonable in the eyes of the media; who by the way, would never tell the truth about anyone with an R behind their name anyway. Here´s a lesson for you all, think of Romney´s innocent comment about "binders full of women", were was the GOP to back him when the ridiculous claims of war on women were leveled against him. Now contrast that to how Dems stand up to the real serial abusers in their party, you remember, Clinton, Wiener, Filner. Think about it my conservative friends, the GOP will let us down every time.

SC is a very Red State. MO and NV are Purple. DE is Blue. Whoever emerges from the primary should take the general - OK maybe not Lindsey as he is very divisive. I´d not pull the lever for him in November.

So, #12/13- We are to cast our votes to "send a message"? And #12 is prepared to vote for the Dem in the general if the wrong Republican is nominated. #13, all the support in the world wouldn´t have elected those very flawed candidates you listed as being without sufficient backing. When did we lose the idea that we need to WIN, not send messages by nominating bad candidates whose only attribute is that they can claim some tea party endorsements? You think Lindsey Graham is bad but feckless Christine O´Donnell would have been just fine?

I despair.

"When did we lose the idea that we need to WIN, not send messages by nominating bad candidates whose only attribute is that they can claim some tea party endorsements?"
Gee, I don´t know...how did Dole and McCain work out? It´s pretty tough for candidates like O´Donnell and the others to get elected when they have the likes of Tokyo Rove speaking out against them prior to the election. Think of the many "bad candidates" the Democrats have run, have you EVER heard anyone in the party break ranks and criticize them? The answer is no. Granted they have the MSM behind them, but their strangle hold on the news has been lessened quite a bit with the help of Fox and the internet. Why is it that the members of the Tea Party Conservatives are being so viciously attacked by Republicans who are falling over themselves reaching out to Black and Hispanic voters who will never leave the Dem Plantation. If the Republicans want to win they need to open their "big tent" to include conservatives and libertarians. You want proof, look at what Reagan achieved; and he did it without Fox News, talk radio, and the internet, and fighting the Republican establishment all the way. He did by being a true unapologetic Conservative and never wavered from his principles in hopes of being loved by the press.

If the liberals and Karl Rove RINOs defeat the TEA Party in the primary, don´t vote for McGrahamnesty in the general election.

It´s better to have a small group of conservatives fighting for us than to have a large group of liberals and RINOs fighting against us.

We here in SC are cursed with an open primary system which allows Ds to become Rs For A Day in order to get Miss Lindsey reelected. Plus, the establishment Rs are so fond of their power that they deny more-qualified candidates any platform for publicity, beginning at the county level. I´m still astonished that we actually managed to get Trey Gowdy elected to replace Bob Inglis!

Talk about the very definition of RINO, in SC it was easier to run as an R rather than a D, so pols would simply switch parties. Their ideologies and loyalties, however, remained the same. This I believe is what we´re dealing with here.

There are a couple of emerging conservative R candidates -- SC State Sen Lee Bright for one, former candidate for Lt Gov Bill Connor for another -- but there are also some decoys designed to once more split the primary vote and again allow Linds to sashay to the GE.

We have a LOT of work to do.

#22, Your sentiment is totally understand but I will definitely vote for a Rino over a confirmed democrat progressive. We need to keep the House, take back the Senate and put a real president in the White House.
The SCOTUS does not need any more liberals appointed and put on that court or any other high court.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

On Thursday, Brendan Eich, who has helped develop some of the web’s most important technologies, resigned under pressure as chief executive of Mozilla, the maker of the popular Firefox web browser, just two weeks after taking the job.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.
