Sen. Graham is showing his true stripes again

Posted

Kudos to Hubert D. Osteen and Victor Davis Hansen for their editorials in the newspaper on Jan. 21.

Many of us are in agreement, and IF so much of the media would write and report the actual news rather than twisting it to fit their bias, then we could stop calling them out for the "fake news" they put out.

Then we have politicians such as Pelosi who is anti-Trump and says that the bonuses given by Wal-Mart are just crumbs.

At least the workers are getting crumbs and the ones I have talked to are happy to be getting a bonus. I do not remember any "crumbs" being given to them during eight years of President Obama's administration.

Another anti-Trump politician is our own snake-in-the-grass Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Graham, for many months, was anti-Trump, then he started sucking up to him because he thought he could get Trump to sign off on the amnesty program which he wants for all the illegal aliens in our country.

Since that does not seem to be working for him, Graham is once again showing his true "Progressive Democrat" stripes by not voting to pass government funding because it does not include amnesty for these people.

Graham wants all these illegals to stay here, taking jobs from our citizens, receiving all the benefits of citizenship while tax-paying citizens support them.

He does not care that you must pay more in taxes to support them and your own family.

I do not understand why people in our state keep re-electing him.

He does not have the best interests of our citizens at heart, but surely does for the illegal aliens!

I remember when he gave a speech to the group LaRaza in 2011 and said then that if you do not agree with him about amnesty for illegals, you are a bigot and can just shut up.

Do you suppose he might be thinking about another run for president and this is a plan to gain voters by giving them amnesty and giving sanctuary to the criminal element?

Could be.
