Yesterday a congressman, today I wrote a senator

News accounts I'm seeing warn the Republican leadership in DC is working toward a grand sell-out, a betrayal of election promises that helped fuel the party's successes at the polls last month.

Washington needs to hear from us. 

I'm writing to those who represent me in Congress. This morning's email went to Senator Johnny Isakson.

Dear Senator Isakson, 
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. 
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 you 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. 
Mr. Isakson, you tried to be a peacemaker with Obama last year, you even recruited other Republicans to dine with the president, allowing him to lobby his positions. But 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, now I ask you to tell me how the Republicans plan to turn things around, and begin to restore rule of law in these United States. 
Thank you in advance, I await your reply.

For those interested, yesterday's letter to my congressman can be found here.

Update: I've also dashed off a letter of protest to outgoing Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss.
