An open letter to the U.S. Congress

INVADING OUR STATES

7 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

Greetings. I am a voting constituent In rural west Texas. Oh really? Denials to the contrary, I’m just seeing that Trump’s private paramilitary army is now in Seattle. Why? You know when you’re living a moment in history. When you are watching the slow degradation of Democratic norms. We all know that fascism in Germany did not happen overnight. It was a slow, persistent effort. Slowly the populace was desensitized. Humans are adaptive. We can get used to anything. But can we get used to America no longer being America? All for the sake of one awful man’s political ambitions? Why is he invading states? Why is he being allowed to invade states? Where have states’ rights gotten to? This is insanely scary in America. “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.” This is not a joke. This is how democracies die. You should be concerned. Just because something happens in plain sight does not mean it’s not wrong. We are suffering on so many fronts. What is our federal government doing about it? Invading us. You are the leaders. You need to take a stand. Or there will come a time when you won’t be able to. And if you think that’s a knee-jerk reaction, you are not paying attention. Do you really want to be the Vichy Republicans in the history books?
