Well that's one way to do it, lol...Let's just hope this guy isn't running for president. I'm not sure if he was being figurative, or joking around, however, that's what he said.

There's an audio clip at one of the sources inside the article.

Republican senator and presidential maybe-hopeful Lindsey Graham stopped by the "politics and pies" forum in Concord, New Hampshire, today, where he announced that if he is elected president in 2016, his first act will be to deploy the military in Washington to force Congress to reverse cuts to the defense and intelligence budgets.

I would rather deploy the military to D.C. to remove congress period, including this boot licking ass hat serving his military industrial private masters.

So he would use Military Forces to dictate what Congress decides???

Isn't that premeditated treason???



Your election build up is going to be insane!

The moment he did that, is the moment that he is no longer President of the USA, and becomes a military dictator.

As if too little money is spent on the MIC. Now we know where his millions are invested.

What defense cuts, what intel cuts, is that little geek talking about? He's just making the GOP look stupid imo. with this hollow BS electioneering. STFU Lindsey, you're not helping!

Wow. What kind of insane statement is that?

I had figured him has a bit crazy, but not this crazy.

Sounds like nutty satire.

But Graham is nutty.

I would never underestimate the guy. He is a loon, but he's also brilliant. He said what he said for a reason ... and I believe he'd do exactly what he said given the opportunity. -Shivers

Lindsay Graham has just announced support for a military coup to get his way.

If he thinks the only way to get bills through Congress is with military force, he has absolutely no business running for President.

He is plotting against Congress, the very DEFINITION of TREASON. He should be sent to Guantanamo Bay.

You have a strange view on what is satire.

We can agree he is a loon though.

Lidsey just removed himself from the GOP POTUS seeking apparatus. Thank God for small favors.

I wasn't going to vote for him anyway...

But this?????

Oh, hell no.

Even if it's satire, it's really not something one should say, or even think... He shouldn't be President, or even a Senator after that stupidity...

It's not treason, but it's headed down the path to it. I doubt the military would go along, but the very fact he'd say something like this is truly terrifying. How many others think like this?? A question that needs answering in my humble opinion.

It seems this is more him blowing hot air out his rear and trying to score cool points with the MIC and hawkish idiots in general, than actual treason, though who knows what anymore. I am seeing congress and other big players that seem to be brazenly engaging in behavior I used to think would count as treasonous, or at least get the secret service kicking your door in and asking you a lot of questions. At least, it would if any one of us did this. But I guess if you are excessively rich, powerful, or a servant of the excessively rich and powerful, you can do whatever the hell you want.

Next election? Dude, at this point, I am hoping and praying to whatever non-existent deity you choose that a comet or meteor or the planet Niburu strikes Earth and puts us all out of our misery before we have to endure the horror of the next election. Another Bush vs. Clinton, or an even more out of touch and useless alternative? No thanks.

Sounds like some banana republic dictator. "I will use the military as my own personal thugs to thwart the law." Lindsey Graham Ortega.

Someone please Photoshop him into some fatigues and aviator glasses. Stogie optional.
