Reworked my senate protest letter.
Just dashed this off to outgoing Georgia U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss, who, like Johnny Isakson, is a Republican.
Subtopic: You're leaving at an ugly time in history
Dear Senator Chambliss,
Looks like a great sell-out is underway, with Republican leadership scurrying around Capitol Hill working to give Obama a spending bill, and money for his unconstitutional executive amnesty plan by Christmas.
Americans turned out last month to elect Republicans to hold a rogue president in check. Now the GOP leadership seemingly wants to green light what they promised to stop.
You may be leaving the Senate at year's end, but actions you vote on this month may have lasting consequences.
Forget GOP plans for symbolic votes denouncing Obama's moves, what's need is decisive, binding action to pull America back from the brink.
While Republicans play footsie with the administration under the table, we've seen forces aligned (directly or indirectly) with the president burn an American city in the heartland.
We have an attorney general now crisscrossing the country still trying to fan the flames ginned up in Ferguson, Missouri.
Sen. Chambliss, you tried to be a peacemaker with Obama, you allowed him to lobby you over dinner last year, giving the president cover to pretend he had bipartisan intentions. You played into his hands. Since then, things have gone from bad to worse.
If Republicans don't show some spine and begin to seriously counter this president and his destructive administration, very dark clouds will continue to descend on our America.
Please convey to your Republican leadership the time to act in a serious, deliberate manner is now.
Don't fund unconstitutional power grabs. Not for month, not for a week, not for a day.
I voted for you, and I thank you for your service. Now I ask one more thing, please let your final days in office be honorable ones. Please don't fall in line with those Republicans who now conspire to betray their party, their voters and the nation.
Thank you in advance.
