Time For The Silent Majority To Speak — LOUDLY

This morning it was announced that Senator Josh Hawley from Missouri will contest the votes of the Electoral College when the U.S. Congress meets on January 6th to certify those votes.  I am outraged.  How can a ‘man’ who took an oath to protect and uphold the U.S. Constitution attempt to deny the people of this nation the right to choose their president?  The following is the email I sent to Mr. Hawley early this afternoon …

You, Mr. Hawley, are in breach of your oath to protect and uphold the U.S. Constitution.  WE THE PEOPLE have spoken.  We voted, fairly and honestly, for our next president to be President-elect Joe Biden.  We are sick and damn tired of the buffoon who has occupied the Oval Office for the past four years and we need a government that functions, a president who cares about the nation and its people, not about his own personal whims.  For you to contest our votes, to take away our right to choose our leader, is simply unconscionable.  You better think long and hard about what you’re doing, for you will face the consequences of your actions.  At noon on January 20th, Joe Biden WILL become the next president of the United States, else there will no longer BE a United States.

Hawley’s reasoning, or so he claims, is that “some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws.”  What he refers to are the accommodations, such as postal voting, that were made by the states in order to enable more people to vote in light of the pandemic, a scourge made far worse than it needed to be by the very lying, bungling person Hawley and others are attempting to keep in the highest office of the land.  There was no criminal activity, no voter fraud, just people voting from the safety of their home rather than being exposed to a deadly virus while standing in line at the polls for hours.

What Mr. Hawley is doing, as well as what Representatives Mo Brooks and Louie Gohmert are doing in their efforts to silence the will of the people, is not only unconscionable, but is against the Constitution, is against the law of the land.  I believe with 99% certainty that their efforts will fail, but the efforts themselves are criminal, are acts of sedition.  Not only that, but they are keeping us all on pins and needles, keeping us from being able to enjoy this holiday season, costing us sleep and our health, just so they can play these foolish games with our lives!

Our friend Keith wrote an excellent letter to several newspapers regarding ‘Representatives’ Brooks and Gohmert’s efforts to change the outcome, to rob us of our voices. Keith has kindly given us permission to alter as needed and use his letter … I strongly suggest we all take him up on that offer, for if enough of us make ourselves heard, make it clear that we will not stand for this circus the GOP is putting on, perhaps others will follow suit.  These people do not deserve their seats in Congress, for they do not represent the people of this nation, they only pander to the whims of the madman who has destroyed much of what was once good about this country.

The United States was founded on the notion of “government of the people, by the people, for the people”, as President Abraham Lincoln so famously noted in his Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863.  Hawley, Gohmert, Brooks and others are attempting to take “the people” out of that equation. It is time for We the People to rise up, to make our voices heard so loudly and clearly that we override those of the fools in Washington who are lining their own pockets while draining ours.

  1. My problem with all this, Jill, is wondering how the GOP can still call themselves a political party at all? They are acting like petty tyrants, not a small d democratic party, but a Father-Knows-Best bunch of dictators! How anyone in their right mind can vote for people like that is impossible to understand, yet 46.8% of the voters wanted exactly that kind of government. They should all up and move to Russia, or North Korea, where if they hold elections at all there is only one party to vote for anyways. They can get their wishes in those places, here in the Americas, in those countries where there is a choice, there is no place for a party like that at all. Someone please drop a bomb on the next RNC, and wipe out the tyrants with one declarative statement. WE THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!

  2. Perhaps staging a counter-protest in front of the White House is in order? I remember Trump tweeted something to his supporters regarding a huge rally in DC on Jan 6 to reject the EC results. What if thousands show up with guns demanding Congress select alternate electors? That would be utter chaos and disaster in the making, beginning the new year with a bang. *sigh*

  3. This should be his last-ditch attempt at a coup. Perhaps when this fails he’ll finally shut up, or be shut up by the GOP before their reputation finally disappears around the u-bend. I don’t know what can be done about those sad little weasels, Lindsey and Louie plus cronies but I really think something should be done like a censure plus having to wear Dunce Caps for listening to Trump at this stage of the game. It really has to stop now as the joke is wearing thin and I’m getting a rictus grin. I actually hate Trump more than I thought it possible to hate anyone. He has taken tremendous liberties with your constitutional rights.
    Cwtch.

      • Thanks, SoundEagle! I doubt very much whether Hawley even saw my email, though I did get a standard response email.

        Happy New Year to you, SE, and I hope the coming year brings some peace and improvements.

    • It had better be his last ditch attempt, and even so, he is guilty of causing us sleepless nights, physical ailments, and a desire to jump off a tall building to see if we can fly above the detritus. The GOP should be fading into the annals of history, but sadly they are still propped up by wealthy corporate donors who cannot afford to lose this high stakes game. I do like your idea about the dunce caps! Sigh. I think most of us hate him more than we thought possible, and it’s likely to get even worse in the next 20 days. He has indeed taken liberties with our constitutional rights … and our lives.

  4. Thanks Jill for the endorsement and encouragement. It is interesting that the New York Post editorial board called this an “undemocratic coup.” That paper is owned by Rupert Murdoch. Keith
