Sen. Lindsey Graham: I would support censoring mail if it was ‘necessary’


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told reporters on Tuesday that he approved of censoring snail mail if it was necessary to protect innocent lives.

“If I thought censoring the mail was necessary, I would suggest it, but I don’t think it is,” he said, according to Yahoo News.

The remarks came as Graham was answering questions about the National Security Agency’s surveillance program, which has indiscriminately amassed Americans’ phone records.

If Hitler was alive today

He would be proud of the Republican Party social agenda!

Well, of course.

This is the guy that took over Strom Thurmond's spot in the senate.

No train to Stockholm.

Mr. Graham is a conservative.

A conservative today is a social Nazi. I say to hell with that Nazi party and vote Libertarian!

I believe

it is time for this Rhinosaur to leave.

Isn't that upping the anti?

I thought all this was a about collection and observation. Now its censorship of snail mail? Of course, the censorship won't stop there.

Now, will I have the same "compliance officer" assigned to all my communications, or will it be on a rotating basis, or what?

Just open the box and see

I suspect Lindsay Graham

Has our Constitution printed on his toilet paper.

It's in the best interest of anyone who even "REMOTELY" identifies with Liberty to do away with him, and unfortunately I mean out of office.

I am noticing a lot of threads here on the DP garnering support to oust Graham. That is a good thing, let's all show our support!

Grand delusions

Leslie Graham obviously has inhaled too much hairspray, causing grand delusions in his feeble mind.

He can not win re-election in 2014

We can not allow it.

On Greta tonight a man

(sorry, I didn't catch his name) said that the government has for many years been tracking our mail. Only the outside of the envelope not the content. Gee, I feel better.

Illegal aliens coming into

Illegal aliens coming into the US unchecked doesn't seem to be hurting national security. My keystrokes and email on the internet are on orders of magnitude less harmful than people illegally entering the country. My chances of being killed by a terrorist are less than being killed by honey bees. In what universe can Graham justify needing my personal data given this situation?
