Letter to a Republican Senator

Senator, I hope you are staying safe in these challenging times. As a former Republican and Independent voter, I want to share with you I fully support the efforts of The Lincoln Project and Republicans for the Rule of Law. They see what I see in the incumbent president, a level of corruption and deceit that is harmful to our country, planet and even the Republican party.

If the president would listen to me, I would give him the following comment to digest. Mr. president, if you do not have anything of value to add, please refrain from talking. To me, he missed a golden chance to actually be presidential when he was briefed on the pandemic risk back in January. Instead of being the leader we needed, he whiffed at the ball on the tee and resorted to modus operandi of misinformation.

These Republicans have political courage. I applaud and support their efforts. Please know, when asked in a recent RNC survey, I sent in a similar response. Former VP Joe Biden is not perfect, but he is a decent man and will attempt to return us to a bipartisan way of governance which is sorely needed. I encourage you to support Biden to preserve our democracy.

Thank you for your service.

    • Many thanks Jill. I have sent it to about 1/2 dozen senators. Please feel free to adapt and send. Will it do any good? No, but it will at least make me feel better. Actually, my hope is to reach a few of their staff, as they must witness the hypocrisy on a daily basis. Keith

      • Thanks Keith! I had already planned to do so. As you say, it won’t do any good, but … we have to try, else we are as bad as those who sit back and chew their fingernails.

      • Jill, I have sent a shorter version to several newspapers. Here it is:

      • Jill, my local newspaper ran a slighter shorter version of the letter I sent in today. They cut the Biden parts, but tied it to a recent article on Trump’s unhappiness with The Lincoln Project. Keith
