Lindsey Graham Declares He Would Sic Military On Congress As President (AUDIO)

The framers of our country decided on splitting executive power from legislative, recognizing that power being too concentrated could be abused, as they had seen from England. This is not, however, what presidential hopeful Lindsey Graham sees as appropriate. He was visiting the Concord City Republican Committee on March 7, at the “Politics and Pies” forum when the discussion turned to cuts of the US Military budget. He was insistent that these cuts, which reduced us to only the size of the next eight nations combined, had to be overturned in order to apply US sovereignty over foreign nations. To accomplish this, he declared his intent that, if he is elected president, he would use military force to get the legislation he wished passed, as reported by Ben Swann.

“…and here is the first thing I would do if I were President of the United States, I wouldn’t let Congress leave town until we fix this. I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to.”

This revelation comes on the heels of Senator Graham’s treasonous letter to Iran with 46 fellow Senators, clearly violating the Logan Act. Either event is troubling enough, but one right after the other, and this is a major stumble for the South Carolina Republican.

This is however not an isolated voice. Indeed, it might be the inevitable result of the polarized politics within the United States. As discussed on Vox, our presidential system of government, if history holds true, may eventually find the legislature turning into little more than a rubber stamp on the president’s policies. This statement from would-be-Emperor Lindsey Graham the First may become the standard for resolving differences within the beltway if we are not careful.

Senator Graham is currently running third in the latest presidential polling for the GOP nomination, a position within 3 points of the current lead, well within striking distance. This is a bold statement for him to have made, but will the Republicans respond as negatively as they should to such a declaration? Only time will tell.

So for now, Lindsey Graham’s race to become El Presidente of the Banana Republic of America is still chugging away.
