The other day, I got the following (unsolicited) letter from the member of Congress who is currently misrepresenting the district in which I live, Ed Perlmutter:
The following is my response that I sent to both his local and Washington DC offices:
Ed Perlmutter, Member of Congress:
I’m amused you think signing your form letter with “Member of Congress” affords you any courtesy, as if you’re someone from whom I’ve been waiting to hear.
Your breathless, insipid endorsement of the policies put forth by the administration currently making a mockery of our Constitution, irreparably and intentionally damaging any semblance of race relations in our country, as well as other inexcusable assaults on this supposed “place of liberty”, indicates to me that you’re too ignorant to understand the issues facing our country. Which, of course, means you’re drawn to the perceived control that you think comes along with a title like Congressman.
Regarding the specific assault from the Obama administration in its campaign to debilitate this country you mention, I don’t have the same naïve, vapid outlook about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals as you do. In fact, I appreciate the judges in the Fifth Circuit Court who are blocking the unconstitutional and unilateral actions of the One Who Would Be Dictator currently defiling the Oval Office. That court is defending our country against enemies such as yourself and your tin god. There have been laws in place to handle such matters as immigration. I don’t have sympathy for these people, the majority whom refuse to integrate while standing in defiance of the laws this country.
I don’t need lectures from people such as you about the fabric of our nation; you have twisted the cause and nature of immigration to such Dorian Gray proportions, this lunacy makes sense to you. Enough so that you’ll break out your cheerleader skirt and pom-poms and ask me to join you while you assist in actions that are blatantly unconstitutional. You’re a bad joke, Congressman.
I do think opportunities still exist in this country, but that time is short; and it is the actions of cowards like you who are actively shortening the lifespan of opportunity in America. If you want a pat on the back for your actions in destroying the country, there are plenty ignorant people out there who will likely give you the worship for which you’re desperate. Start with those who voted for you.
You’ll not find such simpering admiration here.
