Tim Scott would be a great addition to the Senate. It would certainly shake things up and thats a good thing.

Yes, we need to find a replacement for Grahamnisty. We really need to find someone like Demint or Scott to run against Graham. He did he has not done anything to shed more light on the Bengasi attack other than he's more concerned then before, after the interviewing of Ambassader Rice.

I just heard that Trey Gowdy may make a run for Graham's seat in the Senate. As an aside, Pelosi just said that DeMint will not be missed and was a bad lawmaker.

Trey Gowdy is a congressman from the 4th District in South Carolina. He's a fighter and a great conservative.

If you don't know Tray Gowdy, you must not have seen any of the Fast and Furious hearings or the Benghazi, Libya hearings. He is and attorney and has fire in his belly to stand up for conservative values and the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

Keith,
I have followed those two subjects, but just don't remember his name being called out. Like I said, I will look him up.

Bachmann Addresses Security Provisions in the Patriot Act. You must watch this.
Then you must decide if she is for real, or establishment.

OOPSS! I went and did a review of his votes, and he does support the police state, and not freedom. He supported the NDAA, The anti Patriot Act, and so on. As Ronald Reagan once said about the Russians,"trust but verify!"
