Lindsey Graham Blames Ron Paul For Censure


Lindsey Graham blames Libertarians & Ron Paul for his being censured by Republicans

Like most of the Ron Paul supporters, I left the Republican Party after Lindsey invited us to do so. The original video where Lindsey suggests that Ron Paul supporters, and libertarians, leave the Republican Party HAS BEEN REMOVED (CENSORED) AS HAVE MOST OF THE OTHER VIDEOS that were originally posted at:
Lindsey Graham directed us to "find the exit sign".

Lindsey Graham slams Ron Paul again and says Ron Paul Hijacked the Republican Party! 12OCT09

This Lexington County censure of Graham was done by those who STAYED IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AFTER Graham SUGGESTED THAT Ron Paul supporters LEAVE.

I attended Lindsey Graham's meeting at the Carolina Coliseum. It was poorly attended and the parking lot was full of cars with stickers that said "Dump Lindsey".

I attended Ron Paul's meeting at the Carolina Coliseum. There were more people still there an hour after it was over, than had attended Lindsey Graham's meeting. That is because the line was so long, to shake hands with Ron Paul, or to get his autograph. By the way, there was not any line to shake hands with Lindsey Graham, or to get his autograph.

Ron Paul Slams Lindsey Graham on CNN and says What Does He Have Against Constitution 

Here is the old post after the SC Republican convention 5-16-2009

Republican wing of the Republican Party tells Lindsey Graham that he is a hypocrite:
Examples of Lindsey Graham hypocrisy were provided in the speech that he gave on that very day:
1) In this very speech Lindsey speaks of recruiting, and building, the Republican Party, but then shows the libertarians "the exit sign".

2) In this very speech Lindsey presented his own proposed amendment to the Bible:

"Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican",

but then…

After Voting For TARP Lindsay Graham Slams Ron Paul Libertarians

The voting on the Platform and Resolutions was a lesson in railroading. One of the resolutions was a commendation of Lindsey Graham. The chairman of the convention moved that the Platform and Resolutions all be approved in one vote, with no discussion.

There was a motion from the floor, that the several resolutions be considered individually, rather than as a package. After this motion was seconded, the chairman of the convention announced that this motion would have to be in writing.

While the first delegate continued to speak from the floor, a second delegate put the motion in writing and walked it up to the chair.  

Instead of voting on this motion, The chairman of the convention stalled by quietly sending a courier to the delegate, who had presented the motion. The courier claimed that the motion needed a more detailed explanation of why it was presented, and an explanation as to what the objection was.

In the mean time the chairman of the convention made a motion to suspend the rules, and to accept all the resolutions as written.

On a voice vote, the Chairman claimed that the majority had voted to suspend the rules, and to accept all the resolutions as written. That's it — rules suspended — no consideration of the individual resolutions. We had heard three hours of political speeches, but when we got to the real business, we did not have five minutes to vote on one resolution. It is rushed through in a package, without thoughtful consideration.

Railroading at SC Republican convention 5-16-2009 

We were a large presence in that Convention, but as long as the old guard controls the proceedings, it does not matter how large a group we are. Sorry folks, but we did what we could.

You know, all the speeches on the need of the party for new members and new energy just sounds very hollow when the intent of the leadership appears to be "business as usual." They would like us to fill the ranks, but it appears to be fixed so that no change can be created. If we fall in line, as most of the old members have, then we will stagnate.

When Lindsey Graham was speaking to us, from the podium, he promised to build the Republican Party. But apparently he was not including those of us who actually do believe in the principles that the Republican Party still claims to represent. He told us that we should look for the exit sign.

Video of a delegate objecting to commending amnesty bailout Lindsey Graham:  REMOVED (CENSORED)

We wonder how long it has been since Lindsey Graham has read the "Republican Creed".

The "Republican Creed": 

Perhaps the Delegate Package should have contained this instruction:

This morning, when you arrive at the Convention, we will give you a printed version of all the resolutions we have already decided will be accepted, and will have someone move that they be accepted as a package without amendment, without consideration of their merit. We have a committee to construct the platform and resolution, and your only job is to accept, accept, accept without amendment or objection. After all, we have been here for hours making speeches about the need for growth and getting back to the original goals of the GOP, and everyone is tired and we want to adjourn. Learn to fall in line and you can go far in the GOP. Republican party insiders were so sure that the fix was in that they left before the time for the "vote" on resolutions and platform.

Several Republicans had lead us to believe, that if we got involved in the Republican Party, that we could make a difference in the way that Ron Paul was treated.

Several Republicans had lead us to believe, that if we got involved in the Republican Party, we could restore the Republican Party to principles that they still claim to represent.  Perhaps these dedicated Republicans did not speak to Lindsey Graham. How much "lesser" is "the lesser of two evils"? 

The SC state convention was the SECOND time that Lindsey Graham had "thrown down the gauntlet" to the Ron Paul supporters. This was a repeat of his conduct at the Greenville County convention:

Lindsey Graham: "Ron Paul is not the leader of the Republican Party"  in Greenville 

Well Lindsey, you threw done the gauntlet twice now.

Did Lindsey think that we would not respond?

By the way, Lindsey Graham says that you are a bigot if you want no amnesty for illegal aliens:

The reason the GOP is dying is because of phonies like Sen. Lindsey ‘Bankster Bailout’ Graham. The GOP will either listen to Dr. Paul or end up in the trash bin of history.

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said a Lexington County Republican Party vote
to censure him was engineered by libertarians within the party more
concerned about ideological purity than with growing the GOP or with
effective public policy.

Graham said the 13-7 vote to censure him was engineered by supporters of
U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, a Texas Republican who ran for president in 2008.
Paul is a libertarian who favors strict limits on government authority.

"I have tried my best to be a conservative that can grow and build this
party," Graham said, noting his efforts to reach out to African
Americans and to work with Democrats in Congress when possible. "They
have no desire to do that – I do."

The Lexington GOP voted Monday night to censure Graham for his support
of a massive federal bailout of the banking industry and for supporting
a failed immigration reform bill in the U.S. Senate that would have
given illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.

Both the bank bailout and immigration reform were initiated by former
President George W. Bush, also a Republican.
The Lexington County GOP is the third county party in S.C. to censure
Graham, a Seneca Republican elected in 2002 after U.S. Sen. Strom
Thurmond retired. A censure is a formal statement of disapproval, and is
rare among party operatives.

The Greenville County Republican Party censured Graham over immigration
reform. The Charleston County Republican Party censured Graham over his
willingness to work with Democrats.

More recently, Graham has drawn the ire of conservatives for teaming
with Democratic U.S. Sen. John Kerry in favor of climate change
legislation. Graham is supporting a measure – called cap and trade –
which would put new emissions restrictions on businesses while giving
industry flexibility in meeting the new efficiency goals. Conservatives
see the legislation as a tax.

Graham, the Lexington County GOP resolution reads, "reiterates his
support for government intervention in the private sector in direct
contradiction to the Republican principle of free markets."
