FreedomWorks To Senator Graham: Lead By Example And Give Us Your Email Password

lindsey-graham_3-620x472

Senator Lindsey Graham has been out in front of the NSA scandal, defending the agency’s spying on American emails with the old “if you’re not doing anything wrong you have nothing to worry about” defense. “I don’t think you’re talking to the terrorists. I know you’re not. I know I’m not,” Senator Graham told a host on Fox & Friends last week. “So we don’t have anything to worry about.”

The folks at FreedomWorks are calling Senator Graham’s bluff. They want his email password.

Kibbe commented, “Privacy is a citizen’s right to choose what information you prefer to tell the public about, and what you choose to keep to yourself. Senator Lindsay Graham recently asserted that violating the Fourth Amendment to implement warrantless government surveillance is not only acceptable, it’s welcomed. If we’re not talking to terrorists, we have nothing to worry about.”

“Respectfully, Senator, we ask you to lead by example and make your email account password available to the American people. If you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to worry about. Right?”

If Senator Graham isn’t doing anything wrong, what does he have to worry about?

    If your right to privacy isn’t worth the supposed added measure of security relinquishing to the gov’t offers, what other liberties are you willing to part with? Is freedom no longer worth the risk to you? Do you prefer just to exist rather than to live free?
    Do you imagine that gov’t will not use and abuse your privacy for their gain? That gov’t is comprised of angels? That the greedy and power-hungry have overlooked the obvious opportunity gov’t offers?
    Why do you think the early Americans risked all for freedom? Why do you think they would not suffer the abuses of unlimited gov’t? How could the words “give me liberty, or give me death” ring so true with so many early Americans? What moved them to resist unlimited gov’t at all costs?
    Why do so many take that heritage for granted?

    His constituents email would be exposed and they might be subject to retaliation by their employers. Of course he is still a hypocrite skunk.

    I want the NSA to turn over the phone conversation obama and hitlery had during the Benghazi attack

    If Snowden were black then Obama would grant him executive immunity and Eric Holder, who is responsible for the death of one of our “WHITE” border agents wouldn’t be threatening him. Ironic, considering Snowden didn’t carelessly kill anyone by giving automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels but Holder did. Ya gotta love this Obama Banana Republic of Kenya Marxist politics

    Flimsy Graham could also give us his Phone records and content , what difference would it make now that every one has been violated by our own givernment. Yes givernment because they give tax money away to gain the vote.

      Banjo kid before: “The quacks are to stand before God one day to give an account , I feel they should do what they want just as any one who has denied Christ …”

      Banjo kid now: “Flimsy Graham could also give us his Phone records and content , what difference would it make now that every one has been violated by our own givernment. Yes givernment because they give tax money away to gain the vote.”

      Me: Banjo kid is wishy washy and his standards change according to his needs at the time.
      I wonder why Banjo kid no longer feels “they should do as they want as any one who has denied Christ …” since Banjo believes “It is God’s place to deal with the wolves in sheep’s clothing because I or any one else may be wrong about one or the other…”

        There are two different items if you will you are comparing apples to oranges. I was speaking of the ones that make their living off the so called sheeple as you so named them this is different and has nothing to do with the other . Do I feel they should be held accountable yes and they will but politics and faith are separate items. I have no faith in government but have all the faith in God, he does expect us to do things for our selves and if someone is taken in they are taken in but for me I can tell who is spreading the correct word, can you ? The charlatans who ask for money don’t get any from me but when a politician says it is ok to steal our privacy that is something totally different. Your are good at twisting others words . I just said he should let us have his phone records and nothing more . The TV Evangelist are not asking for me to divulge my private info but Flimsy is . Big difference

          Not different at all.

          You are willing to give a pass to religious quacks and allow them to continue to fleece the flock because: “The quacks are to stand before God one day to give an account , I feel they should do what they want just as any one who has denied Christ …” That is evident.
          It is also evident that you do not trust God to judge the quacks who are politicians.

          The TV evangelist does not need you to divulge your private info.
          He, like the crooked politician, went to a private company that has all your info and purchased anything and everything he needs to know about you.

          • banjo kid

            I do not have evidence that the TV people are quacks but when a senator gets in your face and tells you that you should not be alarmed because they are looking at every personal aspect of your life there is a big difference . I do not give any one a pass . so make of it what you will . Have fun .
