The rise of Donald Trump and his blatant disrespect for the rule of law did not happen in a void; a GOP that is already working to subvert the next President nurtured him.
It’s probable that Hillary Clinton will be our next President and that the GOP will keep control Congress.
I think I speak for most sane Americans when I say I’m sick of the GOP’s conspiracy theories, coded racist rhetoric, appeals to a base that wants to undo the outcome of American Civil War; and a gas lighting anti-government propaganda outlet.
I’m talking about you Fox News.
Stop demonizing Democrats. Democrats are the opposition party, not an enemy nation. Demonizing legitimate political opposition is unseemly for members of the most stable democratic government in human history.
Stop using the hate rhetoric of media clowns like Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter as a guide for good governance. Members of congress should denounce the hate rhetoric and lies spread by media figures who make their livings by preaching hatred for our system of government.
If you keep your majority in Congress, stop subverting the will of the people by subverting our duly elected President. We the People want an end to GOP obstruction.
End the coded racist rhetoric. The American people know what you mean by ‘takers’ and we are offended by it.
Stop abusing your political power to launch politically motivated investigations into democrats and only democrats.
If the GOP really wants to launch an exercise in justice it should investigate the invasion of Iraq. The World waits for the United States to take responsibility for war crimes in Iraq.
Stop hiding your economic agenda behind Christianity. As a Christian I can say with authority that the GOP and its political operatives on the religious right have no credibility to preach to others. .
Stop breaking government programs and then using them as an example of failure. Most people want public services because they improve the quality of our lives by providing services that we cannot afford by ourselves.
Stop trying to destroy the Affordable Care Act.
Stop trying to privatize and destroy Medicare.
Stop calling Social Security an entitlement program. Americans pay for it; it’s our money.
Stop using LGBTQ citizens to ‘energize’ the hatreds of your homophobic constituents. LGBTQ lives are not yours to use as pawns.
Do your job and hold hearing on Obama’s SCOTUS bin nominee. Respect the rule of law by meeting your responsibilities to the Nation as elected officials
