As an American, and one of your constituents, I watched events of January 6 with simultaneous horror and embarrassment. While I hold the Republicans responsible, I also hold my own party, the Democrats, responsible. For four years, you have sat back and watched our Constitution be trampled, rights of underrepresented groups be whittled away, social welfare programs be slashed, and a President running amok. We have done everything you have asked. We have sent texts and written letters. Our fellow Citizens of Color have waited in lines longer than a work day, in the cold, in the rain, to hand the reins to the Democrats. Do NOT take this opportunity to do more of the same. Do not tell us to turn the other cheek or reach across the aisle or find common ground. We tried that. There are seven senators and over 130 congresspeople who participated in sedition, who rewarded an insurrection with their vote yesterday. At the very least, they deserve censure. What needs to happen to send the message that this will not be tolerated in a democratic republic, is to charge each and every one of them with the seditious acts we watched happen live in our living rooms. I implore you to save this country. This is the last chance we have, and more of the same from the Democrats isn’t going to do a thing, because we only have four years. Use them wisely.
