Dear Republican Senator …
YOU had the unique opportunity to pass legislation that would have protected mine and others’ right to vote for the foreseeable future, and you stupidly passed up that opportunity for reasons that are completely incomprehensible to me and my fellow citizens.
When you took that Oath of Office and swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution, did you think it was a joke? Did you think you were just saying words that had no meaning, that carried no responsibility? Why did you even run for office if you had no intention of acting in the best interests of the nation and the people who live here, who work their asses off to survive and pay their taxes so that you can be paid every month? It appears to me that you did not run for office because you wanted to help this nation or the people, but only so you could take donations from wealthy corporations to feather your own nest.
You, Senator, do not deserve the position you hold, the office you occupy. The people who you have caused grievous harm to are people like me … the elderly, college students, Black and Hispanic people, and single working mothers.
I sincerely hope that one way or another, you are forced out of the United States Senate and soon, for you have let the people of this country down, you have been derelict in your duties, and you are a greedy, racist person who I have lost any respect I once had for. I do not respect you or any of your republican cohorts in the United States Congress. You failed miserably today, and you have no excuse … not a single one of you even voted to debate the bill! Do you really hate the people you represent that much such that you will not even spend a few hours considering protecting our rights?
I expect a reply to this letter … it is the very least that you can do, since you have robbed me of my constitutional rights and made me wish I lived anywhere but this ‘shithole country.’
