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?

Easy …

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 …

Thomas Ravenel
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.

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…

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…

ScrewedNSC June 30, 2014 at 11:10 am

One good days work in other words. The Colonel, what three have you violated today?

The Colonel June 30, 2014 at 11:40 am

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.

TontoBubbaGoldstein July 1, 2014 at 11:20 am

ITBGRC, a run of the mill DUI is not a felony.

I’m pretty sure none of the three “felonies” I commit daily involve cocaine.

Grrr_Native June 30, 2014 at 11:23 am

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.

Mike at the Beach June 30, 2014 at 7:05 pm

Five out of three blog commenters are nitwits. Making up silly statistics is fun, especially on the interwebs.

ScrewedNSC July 1, 2014 at 7:08 am

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.

Mike at the Beach July 1, 2014 at 7:28 am

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.

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.”

Reply
Dice Man June 30, 2014 at 12:24 pm

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.

Philip Branton June 30, 2014 at 11:00 am

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”…?

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.
