Dear Current Majority Leader McConnell, Senator Ted Cruz and Senator Lindsey Graham,
I’d love to tell you how much I admire your love of our country, your democratic belief in our institutions and your loyalty and obeisance to our current president. Unfortunately, I cannot. You are all very smart people and extremely knowledgeable politicians, but your role as leaders in our democracy is obscene. Your tactics of supporting the fallacy that there was corruption, fraud, or a grand scheme of “stealing” an election and allowing the present administration to refuse cooperation with the incoming Biden-Harris administration is deplorable and dangerous. So far, there have been no credible court cases brought to challenge illegality in the state elections. All “legal” ballots are counted or still being counted. The results are in. Georgia can do a recount but even if a 14,000 plus votes are somehow overturned, the end results will not change, and you know that.Current Majority Leader McConnell, how kind of you to continue to support the president in his time of grief. However, it does seem that you are more worried about his mental state than the smooth transfer of power from one administration to another. Do you remember saying “Our main goal is to make President Obama a One Term President”? That was at least a very honest if also a non-patriotic statement. It’s probably your plan now as well. You accomplished stacking the courts with conservative judges, so kudos on that. You’ve blocked continuing support for a large number of our citizens and businesses, so no kudos on that. Your efforts to keep your power and block the power of Democrats is great politics for you but terrible for the country.
As far as you two, Senators Cruz and Graham, I have nothing but contempt for your dishonesty and fake rage against anything Democrats do. Senator Cruz, your efforts to praise the president while absolving him of his disrespect of you, your father and your wife, is simply unforgivable. Senator Graham, your words and promises have already been shown to be lies, self-serving, not serving the needs of the country. Do you really think you will continue to golf at Mara-Lago or any of the other properties belonging to you know who? Do you at least get a discount on a round?
I’m not asking for you three to be the kind of leaders we need at this time, but I do ask you to review your oaths of office that include the phrase “defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic”.
