He Doesn’t Represent Me

South Carolina State Senator Lindsey Graham has betrayed his constituents. Yesterday he introduced a bipartisan bill for universal background checks under the guise of preventing those that are ” insane” from purchasing guns. I have been thinking about this issue for awhile as I was very conflicted about it. I don’t like crazy people wielding guns, but at the same time, a right is a right. My friend and fellow Libertarian Austrianaut put it this way. He said, “Now, everybody has a crazy uncle Earl. While crazy uncle Earl may seem a bit off his rocker due to what happened to him back in ‘Nam, would you ever want your beloved (yet slightly off-kilter) uncle becoming a victim of a home invasion due to his mental state?” That really got me thinking. NO ONE should ever be stripped of their right to defend themselves, EVER! Rights are innate and should never be taken away. In my eyes, I guess that also means voting rights.

Senator Graham also spent last night wining and dining with the President instead of standing with Senator Paul on US Soil Drone Strikes. Not only did he not show solidarity with his fellow conservatives (and an absolute respect for the Constitution), he showed support for the current administration and their ideal that killing US citizens on US soil was a-OK. “Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, praised the Obama administration for its use of drone strikes abroad and offered his view that the wartime authority Congress granted to use military force against Al Qaeda made no exception for domestic soil. Mr. Holder indicated that he agreed.” He has no respect for us and no respect for the Constitution.

Let’s make sure that this RINO knows where we stand in 2014.
