Late last night I got on another letter-writing binge, and inflicted a harangue on my two Senators here in Georgia. I doubt if I'll hear from them, as usual, but the response I got from a number of people was very positive, some asking to use it to send to theirs, one of them being the chairman of the GOP in this area. On that note, I thought I'd post it here, and let you good people be the judge.
Dear Senator; It is beyond incredible to me that there exists in our hallowed halls of Congress such capitulation and outright malfeasance regarding the most egregious and astounding acts of criminality, treason and abrogation of the Rule of Law by this current administration, and that our elected representatives sit idly, silently by. We have entrusted you with our safety, our rights, our liberties, and our freedoms, and you continue to act as if you were only small actors given a piecemeal role in an inconsequential play put on by children.
With the positions you hold on the various committees of the Senate, it is completely incomprehensible to me and a great many other of your constituents that you allow the evisceration of our military to go unimpeded by an entire host of very bad actors...the most important one being an individual who holds claim to the Presidency of the United States, yet acts at every turn as an enemy, a tyrant and a despot.
I am reserving the use of harsh words...I am merely pointing out the obvious, as you apparently have lost the ability to see the forest for the trees, ensconced as you are in that cesspool of corruption we know to be Washington, DC.
Apparently, the timeless ruse of cajoling folks to "go along to get along" has worked again, to our extreme detriment. Your silence has been deafening...and I don't believe an MSM blackout will work as an excuse. We pay a whole lot more attention than you think for that to work.
The litany of abuses is beginning to rival that of our Declaration of Independence. You might try reviewing it again...and I don't mean to appear snide, but if you haven't noticed any correlation between then and now, you are obviously NOT PAYING ATTENTION.
If a sitting President announced that he would just bypass Congress because they won't capitulate to his whims, would you remain silent?
If a sitting President had been found in contempt of a Federal Court numerous times, would you remain silent?
If a sitting President and his Department of Justice were found to be complicit in some of the most incredible, illegal usurpations of the Rule of Law, would you remain silent?
YOU HAVE (Let's not forget the New Black Panthers' voter-intimidation case, the Fast and Furious "gun-walking" travesty, the drilling moratoriums, ad nauseum)
A sitting President has wasted billions upon billions of taxpayer money on fraudulent schemes, far outside of his Constitutional constraints, while rewarding his friends and campaign "bundlers" and insists on wasting more, and where has your voice been?
A sitting President has done everything in his power to destroy the engine of free-market capitalism, vetoed job-creation and innovation, and where has your voice been? Besides a petulant newsletter mention...NOWHERE.
We are all entitled to our own opinions...we are not entitled to our own facts. I have presented nothing but FACTS to you here...abbreviated atrociously in the vain hope you will read this through before rolling your eyes and discarding it.
We have now come into a time where we shall either live as free-men, or die as slaves to an international behemoth not of our own making. This will be the last chance we have to determine the outcome of that question. You can cajole yourselves with the absurdity and conjecture that only politicians can produce to make themselves feel a sort of vindication for their inactions, or you can rise to the occasion, don the mantle of responsibility that was given to you by your fellow citizens, and help us get these criminals out of office, out of the public trust, and into the prison they alone so richly deserve.
We are not only watching closely, we have been rather busy. The actions you take will vindicate ours, in one way or another. You must decide if you are going to continue to be part of the problem, or part of the solution. We WILL return to the Constitutional Rule of Law, or we will join the other failed nations of history, and your names will be featured on the headstone, as well.

For obvious reasons here, I have not included my personal contact information that is required when contacting one or all of your reps. Point being, getting the attention of our elected officials is of paramount importance, but it does little good when they refuse to listen to begin with. We know that this is where a great deal of our problems lay, and while we still have the ability to contact our reps with our thoughts and grievances, we'd better be doing it while we can. It's only one tool we have, but we've got to use them all, and do so effectively. You just never know...I may get an answer.
