Graham doesn't deserve another term in Senate

newsroom@islandpacket.comMarch 21, 2014 

Sen. Lindsey Graham loves war and has played an important role in our problems of growing debt, dysfunctional government and homeland insecurity. He's the Senate's most prominent spokesman for debt-financed militarism and foreign interventionism. He shares responsibility for orchestrated wars, tens of thousands of Americans dead, wounded or disabled, for millions of foreigners dead, wounded or displaced, and for governments overturned, economies destroyed and societies devastated.

He doesn't represent Republicans, South Carolinians or Americans. He represents Washington's elite, the predators and parasites, the war mongers, profiteers, power brokers and ideological stink tanks, for whom war is a way to power and profit, at public expense. When removed from office he will, most likely, join one of the lobbies or think tanks he has served so well against the national interest.
