    I believe Sen. Graham does a wonderful job even though on some things I disagree with him. I particularly agree with his participation in th Gang of 14 and him not backing down on the Geneva Convention. The immigration bill was an attempt to solve a problem. It may not have been a grand solution, but it was an attempt.

    I like Sen. Graham’s common-sense approach to most issues. I have my differences with him, on the Iran resolution and until recently his sticking by the President on Iraq. I think he tells us the truth when he returns from a trip to Iraq and his military service is an asset.

    I have not had the opportunity to read the entire text of HR 6049…I have not had the necessary week or so to do it. But I have to question Sen. Graham’s vote on this issue. Unless Sen. Graham was not IN the Senate at the time of the vote, I wonder why he feels this bill is SO bad for the U.S. and SC that it does not even warrant discussion.

    Lindsey are you a log cabin Republican?

  • Anonymous 06/15/2008 5:20pm

    Middle class America wake up! A vote for a Republican is a vote for your own demise. Is war moral or do the Republicans just use religion to sell out the well meaning and good folks of America? Remember in November!!!!!! Vote all these bums out!!!!!!!!

    You may be partially correct, but please look at the full picture. There are some Conservatives who do not feel like America’s best interests have been protected in over 20 years. http://www.fredforcongress.webs.com

    WHAT IF OUR US CONGRESS COULD REALLY CARE LESS TO OFFER JUSTICE TO POORER AMERICANS ???

    SENATOR OBAMA PLEASE LET THIS COUNTRIES VOTERS KNOW YOUR FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS ABOUT A NEEDED FUTURE REPAIR AND RENOVATION OF OUR BROKEN JUDICIAL SYSTEM THAT CONTINUES TO ALLOW THE EXECUTION’S OF EVEN POSSIBLE INNOCENT AMERICAN’S LIKE TROY DAVIS OF GEORGIA ?

    BEING THE WEALTHIEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD SENATOR OBAMA, DON’T WE NEED AS THE LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD TO BEGIN ONCE AGAIN TO RE-INVEST THE PROPER MONIE$ IN OUR OWN US JUDICIAL SYSTEM, ASSURING ALL OF OUR CITIZENS THEIR RIGHTS TO FAIR TRIALS WITH PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION ???

    DOES GOD NEED TO LOBBY OUR US CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD ON BEHALF OF OUR poorer american’s SENATOR OBAMA,OR ARE YOU WATCHING OUT FOR THEM ?? ***OUR US CONGRESS CONTINUES TO DENY MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICANS PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION EVEN THOUGH WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS & FALSE INCARCERATIONS CONTINUE ALL ACROSS AMERICA ???

    • 700 BILLION $$$ AVAILABLE FOR US BAILOUT, & NO $$$ FOR ALL POORER AMERICANS PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION ?
      SENATOR OBAMA, THIS JUDICIAL INJUSTICE HAS BECOME AN AMERICAN ART FORM, AND NO LONGER CAN BE KEPT HIDDEN OR SECRET FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE EVEN IF CERTAIN (501c3) U$ RELIGIOU$ LEADER$ HAVE BEEN $ILENCED ??

    LETS ALL HOPE OUR MEDIA FRIENDS CONTINUE TO SHOW AN INTEREST IN REPORTING ON THIS AMERICAN HORROR FACING THESE (TENS OF THOUSANDS) FORGOTTEN AND TRAPPED POORER AMERICANS, AND HOW THIS PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER HANDLES THIS VERY SERIOUS ISSUE FACING AMERICA’S LATINO AND BLACK AMERICAN COMMUNITIES ????

    WITH 80% OF THE BLACK AMERICAN VOTERS SAYING THEY SUPPORT SENATOR OBAMA IN THIS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, IT IS ONLY FAIR FOR EVERYONE TO KNOW PRIOR BEING ELECTED OUR NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HOW THIS DEMOCRATIC SENATOR TRULY FEELS ABOUT THIS AMERICAN JUDICIAL INJUSTICE CONTINUING TO INFLICT GRAVE HARM ON THE BLACK & LATINO AMERICAN FAMILIES AND THEIR COMMUNITIES NATIONWIDE ??

    • WHEN GOD’S FACE BECAME VERY RED * THE US SUPREME COURT GAVE ENEMY COMBATANTS FEDERAL APPEAL HC RIGHTS LAWYERS AND PROPER ACCESS TO US FEDERAL COURTS,AND POORER AMERICANS (MANY EVEN ON DEATH ROW) ARE DENIED PROPER FEDERAL APPEAL LEGAL REPRESENTATION TO OUR US FEDERAL COURTS OF APPEAL, AND ROTTING IN AMERICAN PRISONS NATIONWIDE ?????
    • INNOCENT AMERICANS ARE DENIED REAL HC RIGHTS WITH THEIR FEDERAL APPEALS ! THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE $LOWLY FINDING OUT HOW EA$Y IT I$ FOR MIDDLE CLA$$ AND WORKING POOR AMERICAN$ TO FALL VICTIM TO OUR U$ MONETARY JUDICIAL $Y$TEM.

    WHEN THE US INNOCENT WERE ABANDONED BY THE GUILTY **** The prison experts have reported that there are 100,000 innocent Americans currently being falsely imprisoned along with the 2,300,000 total US prison population nationwide.

    WHERE ARE AMERICA’S RELIGIOUS LEADERS ???
    Since our US Congress has never afforded poor prison inmates federal appeal legal counsel for their federal retrials,they have effectively closed the doors on these tens of thousands of innocent citizens ever being capable of possibly exonerating themselves to regain their freedom through being granted new retrials.

    This same exact unjust situation was happening in our Southern States when poor and mostly uneducated Black Americans were being falsely imprisoned for endless decades without the needed educational skills to properly submit their own written federal trial appeals.

    This devious and deceptive judicial process of making our poor and innocent prison inmates formulate and write their own federal appeal legal cases for possible retrials on their state criminal cases,is still in effect today even though everyone in our US judicial system knows that without proper legal representation, these tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates will be denied their rightful opportunities of ever being granted new trials from our federal appeal judges!!

    Sadly, the true US legal Federal Appeal situation that occurs when any of our uneducated American prison inmates are forced to attempt to submit their own written Federal Appeals (from our prisons nationwide) without the assistance of proper legal counsel, is that they all are in reality being denied their legitimate rights for Habeas Corpus with our US FEDERAL COURTS and will win any future Supreme Court Case concerning this injustice!

    For our judicial system and our US Congressional Leaders Of The Free World to continue to pretend that this is a real and fair opportunity for our American Middle Class and Working Poor Citizens, only delays the very needed future change of Federal Financing of all these Federal appeals becoming a normal formula of Our American judicial system.

    It was not so very long ago that Public Defenders became a Reality in this country.Prior that legal reality taking place, their were also some who thought giving anyone charged with a crime a free lawyer was a waste of taxpayers $$.

    This FACADE and HORROR of our Federal Appeal proce$$ is not worthy of the Greatest Country In The World! ***GREAT SOCIETIES THAT DO NOT PROTECT EVEN THEIR INNOCENT, BECOME THE GUILTY !

    A MUST READ ABOUT AMERICAN INJUSTICE:
    1) YAHOO 2) GOOGLE MANNY GONZALES THE KID THAT EVERYONE FORGOT IN THE CA PRISON SYSTEM. ** A JUDICIAL RIDE OF ONES LIFE !

    Someone please tell our US Congress that the GED degree that Manny Gonzales acquired in prison is not a LAW DEGREE !!!!!!

    Senator Graham, thank you for speaking out against the recent disrespect of President Obama by Joe Wilson. Regardless of a person’s political view we need to at least maintain a level of respect for each other. Unfortunately I really question the leadership skills in our legislators. THis kind of behavior is not and would not be tolerated in most private sectors although I am not naive enough to think there aren’t some sectors this would be acceptable. In any case good job speaking out professionally on the issue.

    baldeagle 11/03/2009 7:59am

    Joe Wilson did apologize. It is interesting that there was more outrage over Joe Wilson’s outbreak than there was over what prompted it. No one in the media or in politics disputed the fact that Mr. Wilson was right, just that he shouldn’t have said it. What is wrong here?

    I can’t figure out who is the bigger villian in our current predictament, the congress or the media. The republican party lost their way after the 1994 cantract with America, maybe due to media reporting. We need to return to conservative values. The media is so biased toward the left and the congress is more concerned with their own reelection and the power they presume they have. I think America is waking up. Maybe enough will vote out incumbents and vote for someone who cares more about saving America than their own power.

    Baldeagle, I’ve thought the same way for a long time. When did the US citizens stop thinking for themselves and get so blinded by the shiny objects (or words in this situation) of those who are in positions of authority?

    When did we lose our minds? I don’t know that it’s a matter of waking up as much as it is a matter of using our own good common sense to see the forest in spite of the trees.

    I guess it is true that what we put our focus on will get our attention…

    I voted for your comment because, at present, it’s the only one that makes sense to me. Well said…

  • SCPatriots 12/21/2009 10:35am

    Cap and Trade is a dealbreaker. Georgetown had an opportunity several years ago to become the site of a Modern state of the art oil refinery with no environmental impact. We should promote offshore drilling right here in SC and with an oil refinery located here as well we would have a large increase in jobs and prosperity for the State as well. We need to break foreign dependence on oil. Had the oil refinery been proposed today the small opposition to it would have been loudly overcome by the longstanding South Carolinains with common sense. A modern day oil refinery is much cleaner than a paper mill. I have generations of relatives in Georgetown SC that are not opposed to a refinery.

  • DOUGLASFIELD 02/03/2010 1:22pm

    SENATOR,

    NOW THAT THE PEOPLES U.S.CONGRESS HAS DOCUMENTED OUR UNJUST AMERICAN JUDICIAL SYSTEM,HAVE YOU HEARD IF THE U.S. SUPREME COURT KNOWS WHERE AND WHEN WE CAN ALL WATCH THESE POSSIBLE WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS TAKE PLACE ?

    TROY DAVIS & MUMIA ABU ~JAMAL ~ ARE HAVING PRAYERS FOR JUSTICE SAID FOR THEM WORLD~WIDE ..WE CAN ALL ONLY HOPE AND PRAY THAT EVERYONE IN OUR U.S.CONGRESS THAT KNOWS AND UNDERSTANDS HOW UNJUST OUR U.S JUDICIAL SYSTEM CAN BE WITH OUR POORER AMERICANS,BECOMES ACTIVE IN MAKING SURE THAT TROY DAVIS OF GEORGIA AND MUMIA ABU~JAMAL OF PENNSYLVANIA RECEIVE FAIR AND JUST TRIALS BEFORE ANY POSSIBLE WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS TAKE PLACE.

    LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS IS A WWW VOLUNTEEER LOBBY THAT SINGS OUT FOR OUR MIDDLE~CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICANS. WE CAN BE FOUND WITH ANY SEARCH ENGINE BY OUR NAME OR TELEPHONE NUMBER.(424-247-2013)

    I’ve taken time out of my life and sent letters to Mr. Graham over a period of 2 years. I followed the protocol that is suggested by top writers about how to ‘write an effective letter to your congress member’ and I’ve never received anything but the auto-responders that is sent to every person that is in their elective office area.

    I have not written a letter since the end of last year. I can be ignored by my own boss; I have no desire to be ignored by someone who touts my representation. I would relieve an attorney of their duty to represent me if I were being represented in the way that Mr. Graham has done me over the last 4 years of my residency in South Carolina.

    You and the rest of the Republicans are so transparent! President Obama, as well as us Americans, know what you are doing. Stalling and not voting on what the people want and need in this country. Do the job you were elected to do, and start voting! Your tactics in stalling is only going to back fire on you all. Show our President some respect. How you treat him, is a reflection on how you treat us Americans. We may have been fooled in the past, but not anymore! We The People have spoken by electing President Obama into office. We need change and we need it now! And quit blaming President Obama for the disaster in the Gulf. Enough is enough!

    You are a disgrace to your country and should be embarrassed to have the UNITED STATES in front of your title.4th of July is upon us-it reminds us of history and how the people can come together to make a difference.I hope you and your family meet the same outcome as the 15,000,000+ unemployed.You turned your back on the Citizens by playing games and stupid antics.Assistance needs to be offered to ease the minds of the families and allow continued dignity no matter the cost. You spend OUR money like water and the American people MUST and SHOULD be priority one!
    “As good government is an empire of laws, how shall your laws be made? In a large society,inhabiting an extensive country,it is impossible that the whole should assemble to make laws. The first necessary step, then,is to depute power from the many to a few of the most wise and good.”

    Dear Senator Graham,
    S.3520 needs to be passed immediately. There are 15 million Americans who are “unemployed through no fault of their own,” and who are also frantically attempting to find new jobs that do not exist. The majority of these 15 million have a family dependent upon their income, so that increases the number to possibly 30 or even 45 million Americans who are in imminent danger of losing everything. When this happens, the financial and moral ramifications for this country will be dire indeed. I’ll say it again— S.3520 needs to be passed immediately! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

I thank you for your attention on this matter.
  • fred4congress 07/10/2010 5:13am

    Graham is Pro-ILLEGAL immigrant, Anti-South Carolina, Pro-Big Government, Pro-Cap and Trade and Pro-Obama. From his own mouth he admits that he defers to Barack Obama because he won the election and “elections have consequences.” There is no big surprise that Graham supported McCain 100% in 2008; like McCain, Graham is a chameleon who changes color (red or blue) depending on who is in the White House. Since Arlen Specter went Democrat, Lindsey Graham has become on of Obama’s favorite “Republicans.” We need a change in 2013.

    Lindsey Graham is the worst joke to come out of South Carolina since the lizard man. I really wish there was a way we could remove him from office and get someone who is not just an obvious puppet of the military industrial complex. He probably plays with little green army men in his office.

    You are a disgrace to your office, and should be voted out at the first opportunity. How dare you say that America is a battlefield, the only terroristic plots since 9/11 have been FBI instigated, and no sir it is NOT ok to decide, unilaterally, who deserve to be executed. RESPECT OUR CONSTITUTION, YOU POS. We are not as uninformed as you seem to be.

    Ah, your website is shut down and your phone line is busy. That’s because Conservatives can’t stand you. Graham you are a disgrace! Your comments on Fox News Senator Paul’s filibuster were despicable! You are a detriment to the Conservative movement, therefore you are a detriment to America. GO AWAY! How dare you say what you did. Are you jealous of Rand Paul? It is unbelievable what you and McCain said. You both disgust me.
