WANT LINDSEY GRAHAM GONE? HERE’S HOW …
Over the last few days we’ve been bombarded with requests from readers wanting to know how they can help former statewide official and reality television star Thomas Ravenel appear on the November ballot to run against U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham.
Frustration with Graham is at an all-time high, and many pro-freedom, pro-free market voters – Independents, Democrats and Republicans alike – are looking for an alternative to the warmongering liberal. Even those who don’t necessarily like Ravenel have told us they think his participation in the race would be a good thing for the state – citing his outspoken advocacy on behalf of his brand of fiscal conservatism and social libertarianism.
“He’s got fresh ideas,” one female former school administrator told FITS just this weekend. “I can see him shaking things up in a good way.”
We agree …
Ravenel’s entry in the 2014 U.S. Senate race in South Carolina would – at a minimum – guarantee a long-overdue discussion on the issues Graham thinks he can gloss over with sound bites.
It would force a real debate, in other words, as opposed to more of the same sanitized “partisanship” and manufactured controversies that reside at the margins of our increasingly unwieldy, unsustainable oligarchy.
Love him or hate him, there is no denying “T-Rav” would elevate the debate … forcing Graham into the first real fight of his 22-year political career.
How can you help him?
If you’re a registered voter in South Carolina, all you have to do is print and fill out THIS FORM (be sure to include the address of your voter registration and your date of birth – and write the name of the county in which you are registered on the line in the top left-hand corner).
Once you’ve filled out your information, you can get friends and family who are registered to vote in your county to sign the petition, too.
Now … because government exists to protect incumbents (and make things as hard as possible for those who would challenge them), there are several rules you’ll have to follow to make sure your signature counts. First, make sure your petition is printed on 8.5 by 14-inch legal-sized paper only. Next, make sure you sign in either blue or black ink only.
In fact, for a complete list of do’s and don’ts for filling out a petition for Thomas Ravenel (including a sample petition), CLICK HERE.
Once you’ve successfully filled out your form, the next step is to mail it to this address …
1051 Johnnie Dodds Blvd., Suite H
Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464
Oh, and you might want to act fast .. because the deadline for Ravenel submitting his signatures to the S.C. Election Commission is July 15 – two weeks away.
No Thank You.
I’m signing. I want him to get just enough votes to put Hutto in office. I call that a victory.
His 2 or 3% won’t do that, even though I believe that’s really what he’s trying to do. Even he can’t be delusional enough to think SC’s gonna send him to DC…
Even he can’t be delusional enough to think SC’s gonna send him to DC…
“Cocaine is a powerful drug…”
–Rick James, bitch.
Damn! How did I miss that theory?! I am slipping, mi amigo. I am slipping…
I want Graham gone, but Ravenel is a dork. However, to get rid of Graham – maybe this is the key? Hmmmmmm?
The petition drive is being met with lots of ‘no fucking way….are you crazy’ responses. This is T-Rav and Will already hitting the panic button.
There’s no panic for Will, he gets paid regardless.
BTW … Grahamnesty’s buddy, Obama …. he is allowing the NSA to provide information to him about any opponent. Careful, Tommy Boy … remember, even SLED once tipped off your dad that the feds were watching you.
isn’t he a felon, can he even legally vote, or is that another former state official that was sucking powder up his nose that I am thinking about?
Yes he can vote and yes he can run for US Senate and in 12 years he can run for governor.
And yes, he is a felon.
The average person in the US commits 3 felonies a day. Does it really matter?
I’d love to know where that stat comes from. Hell yes it matters.
I had forgotten about that stupid book and it doesn’t surprise me that someone is using it to justify their own actions or the actions of a sophomoric criminal. Let’s try it this way:
Thomas Ravenel is a convicted cocaine dealer who also violated FEC regulations and is a drunken driver – wait, that’s three…
One good days work in other words. The Colonel, what three have you violated today?
Well, let’s see…
Speeding – nope, misdemeanor
Lusting after a BMW motorcycle – nope, that’s just mortal
Scarfing down some pita and hummus during daylight hours during Ramadan – nope, not a Muslim and not in an Muslim country anymore
Sorry dude, all I got is a misdemeanor worth about $80 bucks and a point or two.
ITBGRC, a run of the mill DUI is not a felony.
True but he’s still a douche.
Just Fun on Wheels.
I’m pretty sure none of the three “felonies” I commit daily involve cocaine.
It might not matter if he wasn’t such a douche…well, no, it would still matter.
Remember, he wasn’t just getting a bump every now and then…he was dealing. Not much different than a dealer on the corner, IMO.
Five out of three blog commenters are nitwits. Making up silly statistics is fun, especially on the interwebs.
No made up statistics. The figure is accurate. You commit 3 felonies a day if you get out of bed and do anything in this world. Especially if you are a business owner that is working hard to create a product or service. The laws in the US have become very poorly written and all inclusive.
Nonsense- cite your source. Our legal landscape is pretty svrewed up, no doubt, but I own a business and like most business folks don’t have to commit any felonies to stay afloat, much less three daily.
Five out of three blog commenters are nitwits.
GrandTango massively skews the average.
That T-shirt that T-Rav is wearing – does it say on there somewhere “property of” as in property of the NYPD. I seem to recall he was arrested up there as well for drunken driving and maybe they get a free T-Shirt for their “celebrity pic”. Oh wait, that was out in East Hampton, that’s not in the city… http://www.wistv.com/story/22904146/former-state-treasurer-thomas-ravenel-arrested-for-dui
He needs a “Property of Bubba in Cell Block #4” t-shirt.
Thanks, root beer tastes good coming out your nose – not!
It’s a sad day when the former coke head is a better vote than the incumbent…but facts are facts.
So he’s still doing it? How do you do know?
Has anyone, including Mr. Douche himself, ever said he quit?
Good question. I think I still go for him though over Graham even if he’s still a coke head…but I’ll certainly have to think about it now.
TBG would vote for Tony Montana over Lindsey Graham.
— when donkeys fly.
“He’s got fresh ideas,” one female former school administrator told FITS just this weekend.
Yeah, he has fresh ideas on how to smuggle a kilo or two into the country for “personal use”. He probably has some fresh ideas on how to avoid getting caught be the FEC as well.
His fresh ideas for her was I’ll only put the tip in…
Pimpin’ ain’t easy, but Fits is trying.
And if you’re gonna turn this blog into an All-T-Rav All The Time promo vehicle, could you at least give us some more pics of his babymomma?
Sorry Boz: I think FITS sold half the Blog to some liberal, men-haters. If you need your soft-core porn fix,unless you like gay men, you’re at the wrong site
…unless you like gay men, you’re at the wrong site
‘Splains why you’re here…….
Endorsing a candidate is one thing, but openly enticing readers to go out and help him get petition signatures? Damn.
So has Willie been hired by his campaign yet?
I believe we all know the answer to your query…
This is it. Will’s last chance to grab the ring, get out of South Carolina, and hob knob with the real power brokers in D.C. What other politician would give him a job? The sad thing is that, if by some miracle T-Rav did win, he would probably tell Will that he’s got too much baggage to get on the gravy train. He would let him down gently of course…a smile, a hug, a wink, along with reassuring words such as “It only hurts when the head goes in.”
Will has a very small circle of associates who would be politicos. I don’t mind him using his privately-funded site to shill for his associates as much as I mind the associates for whom he shills.
Honestly, would any mature voter cast their lot based on Tommy’s track record? He is a man-child with no discernible intellectual bent. He is Sanford Jr – the emperor with no clothes.
Tommy, like Will and Mark and Tom and Nancy and Mandi, are best consumed as temporary distractions from reality.
Whatever gets Ravenel on the ballot so he can be separated from as much of his money as possible. His ego is going to cost him a lot of money for that 2.9% of the vote.
Why the fuck would I sign this?
Because you like cocaine?
Hey Will, do you think you could find a picture of Ravenel working so us common folk could better associate ourselves with him, you know a picture of him as a
douchebag disgraced politician actor… what the hell does Ravenel do all day besides play polo, listen to Cato in his Land Rover and ride around in boats?
Sleeps until noon, then gets up and goes out for lunch and hangs out in local bars and drink with his wannabe Blue Blood friends. You know, like most people his age do.
I’m a month older than this
douche“gentleman” and I’ve been up since six and at work since eight. If I got caught with 500 grams / 1 pound of cokea “little cocaine for personal use”, I’d still be in jail.
Far less than that has many hundreds of thousands in jail to rot.
I may write in one of their names when I vote.
lol, one less vote for Brad Hutto!
Well, maybe the problem is that your lifestyle isn’t conducive to drug use. Perhaps you need to win the lottery or find a rich daddy.
I’m still laughing at the fact that they named that bridge after his old man and now they’re finding that it’s likely going to need to be closed down during icing conditions. A fair-weather bridge.
TBG will sign a petition to name the white lines on the bridge after T-Rav.
The sign would be a hoot.
According to the “Art of Love”…….this political counter position by T-Rav is being leveraged for what type of re-action.??
What move does Fitsnews provide that the P&C is muzzling..?
How would an “attack” on Graham be done by “smiling” at Hutto..?
What questions should be tagged to Democrat donors to split their cash..?
What issues should be perked to isolate Lindsey before a “late run”…?
Boomerang 101, 404, 901
This is just a stunt to get name recongition up and see how much support he can garner as he prepares for the real race, Tim Scott in 2016.
Dear Mark Sanford and Robert Ford…….
Considering that Nikki Haley was helped by 400K in campaign lending funds, we wonder how your campaign fund accounts could help spread a whisper for some T-Rav luv..?
I wouldn’t vote for the convicted criminal Ravenel if he was running for dog catcher.
He would have to wait 15 years after his parole ends in this state.
In a debate, when T-Rav hears Graham’s name pronounced, he will respond “Yes, Less than 100 grams please.”
Does the term ‘Desperate Democrats’ mean anything to you? LMAO….
So, felons can’t vote but they are free to run for office? Interesting.
We have an un-convicted felon as president: That should tell you something.
Hey Former, you’re not supposed to be here!!
i’m okay with this here petition idea, until the part where I must have 14 inch long paper. how many folks actually keep 14 inch paper at home. oh, wait, a sec, you meant this for folks at work where they access to a business printer/copier. seriously, 14 inch long paper is a must! that’s stupid!
…do the pages stick together?
TBG is working on a project using spare Post-it notes, index cards, scotch tape, scissors and a ruler. Hope this works out for ya, T-Rav.
If T Rav really wants to get on the ballot, internet crowd sourcing isn’t going to get it done. 10 thousand valid signatures from registered voters don’t get mailed in by themselves. Almost noone keeps legal sized paper around and fewer will actually remember to use it until it is too late. At the very least someone’s phone number needs to be included here. I’m a Democrat, so this isn’t my job, but I’ve done this stuff and it isn’t easy. Grow up, hold meetings and pick up some clipboards at Office Depot. You don’t have a lot of time.
Hey! Those 7 petitions will “bombard” Ravenel HQ just as the 12 requests for info “bombarded” FITS HQ.
Is he sending all the people that sign it an 8 ball or something? Please lord keep this coke head, drug dealing, piece of shit out of office.
signed and sent
Although I absolutely and totally support your right to have done so, you are now $0.49 poorer, and will never get that 5 minutes back.
The only way I would vote for him is if he took a drug test every month!
More like weekly (if not more).
bombarded with requests…
Much like coming home to a couple of wrens trapped in your garage and being reduced to a quivering wreck, curled up in the fetal position screaming:
Is this the same Thomas R. that was on that Southern Charm???? Seriously!!!!!
Let’s see how this plays out on a world stage. South Carolina petitions to have a known DRUG DEALER eligible to represent them in the United States Senate. Mexico loves it already. Stupid starts at the top in South Carolina. I actually don’t mind it. It wouldn’t bother me to have a smart drug dealer rather than a wishy washer professional politician represent me. It would be a huge step up from DeMint.
Will Folks would sell himself out for an anti-American felon… Yeah Lindsey Graham is so terrible, right?
Will he bring along Boykin Rose’s son? What a joke.
Hey Mr. Fits, How much is T-Rav paying you? Congratulationa on your career change. You just changed careers from being a political blog to a campaign director.
I wouldn’t endorse “T-Rav” to do a damn thing!!!
Don’t be hatin’ ya’ll
Sure seems to be a lot of Miss Lindsey lover’s on this thread…is this a g@y hangout? No, this guy won’t win, but it’s the last chance to take the LOSER from Seneca down a few notches. I’d love to to see our amnesty loving, war monger drum beater take a little pause by winning in a squeaker. Conservatives throughout this country (real conservatives) hate SC for sending this idiot back to DC to reattach at the hip with that senile jerk from AZ.
Glad he’s running. If he does absolutely nothing, that is better than having Graham in there giving away our country. He has my vote!
