An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Hold Nov election on time

This morning's news that Donald Trump is suggesting we delay the November elections rather than implement widespread vote-by-mail practices is nothing short of terrifying. When the sitting president of the United States openly suggests something as unconstitutional as delaying an election, it is Congress's job to put a swift and certain stop to such ideas. If voting in person isn't safe, then US citizens expect our representatives to find a safe alternative. Also, delaying the election for safety reasons, while simultaneously telling people it's safe to return to work and send their children to school, is a new level of disingenuous. It is blatantly obvious that Trump's suggestion is motivated by the increasing possibility that he will lose by more than his goons can fudge for him, since he has not at any point expressed any real concern about the virus or it's impact on Americans. Although I know my letters to you fall on deaf ears, I want to make it clear that anything short of a strong, immediate, and clearly worded disavowal of the president's plan in your part will suggest to voters that you are supporting this attempt to dismantle Democracy. Representatives that cannot uphold the Constitution as sworn in their oath of office will be replaced and held accountable for their actions by those who replace them.
