On March 9th, 2015, forty-seven United States Senators committed a treasonous offense when they decided to violate the Logan Act, a 1799 law which forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.
At a time when the United States government is attempting to reach a potential nuclear agreement with the Iranian government, 47 Senators saw fit to instead issue a condescending letter to the Iranian government stating that any agreement brokered by our President would not be upheld once the president leaves office.
This is a clear violation of federal law. In attempting to undermine our own nation, these 47 senators have committed treason.

Excerpts from an Open Letter to the GOP:
Item: veterans. You in the GOP sure do love your rhetoric about supporting the troops. Funny thing though, when those troops come home, you don’t seem to care about them overly much. The GOP has repeatedly voted against bills that would benefit veterans, on issues as diverse as healthcare, education, and jobs. Hell, late last year Senator Tom Coburn blocked a veterans suicide prevention bill, because it “threw money away.”
The list just keeps going and going and going. The GOP has become a Möbius strip of bad policy, ill-considered statements, and general stupidity.
And this is the crux of the problem. The GOP has gotten to the point where it isn’t even pretending to consistently follow any sort of ideology. Say what you want about the tenets of conservatism, at least it’s an ethos. But the GOP is conservative only so far as the label serves what seems to have become its primary function: reflexively opposing anything that President Obama says or does. If the president said, tomorrow, that 2+2=4, the GOP would fall all over itself in a rush to proclaim that 2+2=5. Or 8. Or that the very concept of arithmetic is socialist and un-American. It’s all getting just a little tiresome. Is it simple bigotry on the part of the GOP’s leadership? Or is it a base appeal to the worst and most racist elements in our country, continuing in the proud tradition of Nixon, St. Reagan, and Bush the first?
Frankly, it doesn’t make a damned bit of difference what your motivations are: the GOP’s inchoate mess of policy is downright harmful to the country. And you know what? You in the GOP have created this toxic, hyper-partisan mess. It’s about time you reap the whirlwind you have sown. It’s about time the consequences of your unending string of disasters are visited upon you. It’s about time we fought back.
Brace yourself GOP. We are coming for you.
Very truly yours,
A decidedly pissed-off American people
