I modified it a bit and also sent it to my state Governor whom I frequently disagree with but have much respect for. He might think that I think that we are besties now because I have been frequently writing to him over this past year. Maybe we are secret bff’s and will enjoy a post-COVID post-sedition scotch on the porch whilst watching dusk settle over the Potomac… I mean, anything is fucking possible at this point, right? Maybe Greg Davies will join us (for you, Liz!).
Also, just say, “NO!” to treason and murder please and thank you.
Dear (person who represents me at the Federal Government level),
I am writing to request that you do your duty as an elected public official for our country by officially and publicly denouncing the actions, words and role by current President Trump by impeaching him, immediately removing him from office, and once out of office, formally charging him with the applicable criminal laws immediately.
In addition, I am requesting that you continue with your duties as an elected public official by impeaching and criminally charging all members of Congress and support staff who aided and abetted President Trump’s treasonous actions, through their actions, words, or supportive roles.
“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same.” 14th Amendment, US Constitution
With President Trump and his entire staff leading the charge, these Representatives have
- Incited deadly insurrection at our Capitol
- Exhibited erratic terrifying behaviors
- Caused multiple deaths and harm to people and property
- Have lied repeatedly about the election, inciting violence
This is clearly and plainly seditious and treasonous behavior.
I do not envy your position and I applaud your courage in standing for truth and appropriate justice for the essence of our democracy. This is not a short-term problem. However, the initial steps to ensuring that we come together as a country is that we speak and honor the truth with very clear boundaries which have full and immediate consequences (divorce from abusers 101).
I know that you can do hard things. I know that you can do this. We are all counting on you. I believe in you and so does my 12 year-old and all of his classmates who are watching and waiting to see who the helpers really are and how they step up to these unprecedented challenges.
Sincerely, Ms. Herisme and SonHerisme who is 12
*******There are run-ons, grammatical errors and such- I am aware. Take it and make it better and send it to your representative too******* (two, three, four, who can knock it out the door? YOU can!)
