Lindsey Graham, Facts - InfoGraphic

UPDATE 09/21/2013 at 9:14am EST: A veteran wrote to me this morning via SmArgus and requested I clarify the title from "veteran" to the more accurate "war veteran" as this is the claim Senator Graham specifically makes regarding Desert Storm/Desert Shield.

As such, if you are still seeing the old version, please clear your cache.

And thank you again for sharing. :)

------------------------------------------------------

Hola, fellow Daily Paulers, after last night's radio show I began researching whether Lindsey Graham actually served as a veteran since he seems to have a fetish for sending Americans off to die in aggressive foreign wars. As such, upon compiling a set of rather disgusting facts about the man, it seemed appropriate to design an infographic detailing his various injuries against the Natural Liberty of humanity.

Hope you enjoy. :)

You're Welcome

Happy to read you enjoy the graphic, and thank you so much for your efforts to share the graphic in a wider distribution.

Allison that is a beautiful piece of work

Looks so professional.

Firing up the old blog again. Good! I see from the time stamps that you took almost an exactly two year hiatus. Good to see you coming back.

What was it that lit the fire back?

Thank You Mr. Nystrom

Mr. Nystrom,

It is always a humbling experience to know that you took the time to leave a comment on one of my offerings, so thank. As for my hiatus, I suppose like many, I just sort of burnt out following the 2012 cycle.

Honestly it was a foray into the chat-room on a Saturday, when fellow DP member, AutoAubundance asked if I was the gal who debated Mr. Jack Hunter several years prior. From there one thing has sort of led to another, with AutoAbundance, Jeff Treubig, and myself working hard to set up "Grassroots Revolution Radio" with the eventual idea of speaking with you about relaunching DailyPaul Radio. However, we are aware you are a busy guy and thus sort of wanted to have the framework in place before requesting to speak with you in greater detail.

Over the last few weeks in addition to my show and the Treubig Show, I have managed to secure broadcast content from Mr. John Bush of Liberty Beat for Top/Bottom of the Hour news breaks, and rebroadcast rights to Scott Horton's "Anti-War Radio", and Michael Boldin's "Tenther Radio." At this point still trying to get in contact with the correct person regarding Dr. Paul's weekly podcast.

There are other exciting details, but the comment section is probably not the most appropriate place to type on endlessly. Nevertheless, should you have a moment or two over the next few weeks it would be great to speak with you about the project.

Keep up the good work

I'll look forward to hearing more about the project.

Best,

Excellent - McCain?

Any chance you can do one on his fellow puke warmonger John McCain? Those two are joined at the hip.

No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

Great idea!

It occurred to me...

It occurred to me about half way through production, that if one has the time, you could basically craft 535 different distilled versions for each member of Congress.

Although between the research to back up the graphic's statements and the artwork/layout this one took the better part of a day.

Perhaps it would be beneficial to create an itemized list ranking those members most in need of expose, with Senator McCain of course being the next most immediate subject. :)

Good one. Nice work.

Would love to see one on Mitch McConnell too.

Thank You

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment regarding the graphic. As stated in the comment above yours, it may be efficient if we prepare a list ranking those members most in need of such edictorial

So far based on feedback from my fellow DailyPaulers, the next two will be:

  1. Senator McCain
  2. Senator McConnell

Also if there is a particularly egregious action taken by the subject, any link to source material might help speed up production. :)

Steny Hoyer

I'd love to see one of these made for Steny Hoyer (US House Rep for Maryland's 5th district).

He is just as tyrannical as McCain, Graham, etc. Hoyer supported the war in Syria, NDAA, NSA surveillance, Patriot Act, CISPA, Internet Tax, and just about every other anti-liberty thing you could think of! He opposed auditing the Federal Reserve.

You make one and I will spread it far and wide in MDs 5th district.

OMG... How can we forget the Wicked Witch of the

West Coast and the amazing remark about how Congress must pass laws in order to find out just what the law actually says!

awesome graphic. lindsey

awesome graphic. lindsey graham... god's point of reference for all lesser evils.

Thank You Bill

Thank you Bill for appreciating the graphic, and I too feel Mr. Graham may just be the most repugnant member of Congress in a quite a number of years, although it is not for lack of competition. :)

If you live in his state

Print some of these off and stick 'em on windshields, or wherever.

Every little bit helps!

Guerilla Political Ops

Definitely would be cool to see these passed out at perhaps one of his rallies. Although just FYI, my experience with campaign volunteering has taught me never to mess with someone's vehicle.

It only took one time getting screamed at by an older gentleman to stay away from his ##$#$# car, to convert me to an advocate of slim-jim door hangers. ;)

Nice!

I've sent this InfoGraphic to all my recent NeoConned-turned-Liberty contacts as further evidence to solidify the freedom base. I recommend all do likewise.

Thanks Allison!

Thank You PH's Liberty

Wow, Thank You PH's Liberty for distributing my graphic to your fellow friends in Liberty. I truly appreciate you taking the time, especially when there is such a plethora of timely political-graphics circulating throughout the marketplace of ideas.

Excellent post Allison

Graham is one of the worst in history in the congress.

A big banker and "defense" contractor's dream come true.

He represents the war profiteers - not the citizens.

That fat pig wouldn't last a day in the war zones advocates sending American kids into.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Danke

Thank you PawnStorm12, it appears you and I share a very similar disdain for Senator Graham. In fact, it is his perpetual infatuation with haphazardly sending American troops all over the world that spurred me to begin crafting the graphic after hearing him speak about he is already preparing an AUMF for Iran.

I wish everyone in South Carolina

could see this.

Me Too

Hopefully some folks like Mr. Cunningham in South Carolina will see to it, that the graphic makes it into the hands of his fellow South Carolinians.

Unnecessary

It is unnecessary, although the inclination is well understood, to direct ad homs towards Mr. Graham as his record exposes his total lack of integrity rather succinctly.

Whether he is a closeted homosexual is immaterial for this particular graphic, although his bachelorhood would seem relevant when contrasted against his absolutely hyperbolic language use to attempt to justify further federal intervention into marriage.

I can never help but to think the old adage of "doth protest too much" when he begins droning on about the sanctity of marriage.

Do you mean Accepted?
