Dear Constituent

Dear Constituent,

My first choice for President in 2016 was Jeb Bush. I considered Bush the strongest candidate. When his campaign faltered, I turned to Donald Trump as the most likely to prevent an extreme liberal Democrat from becoming President.

During the first year of the Trump administration, I was buoyed by our success with tax reform, regulatory reform, trade policy, and appointments of conservative judges. The economy boomed as a result of the Administration’s efforts.

However, there was a disturbing undercurrent of negativity–reports of foreign intrigue, immorality, and mismanagement. My confidence weakened, my hopes disappointed.

I support the Administration’s stated goals, but I now fear that scandal and extreme partisan animosity will hinder further progress. While I trust that the President’s efforts to answer the charges against him will ultimately clear his name, I fear that the effort will distract from further progress. I believe we now need to put the problems faced by the Trump Administration behind us. I urge President Trump to resign so that a new Republican administration guided by President Pence can continue our progress.

Your Representative in Congress

    Rewritten to reflect reality:
    During the first year of the Trump administration, I was buoyed by our success in undermining the middle class and democracy. Our taxpayer giveaway to the wealthiest 1% amounted to $1,200,000,000,000 and only $300,000,000,000 to the other 99%.Of course, this means we will somehow have to allow the next generation (when I am out of office) to figure out a way to deal with the massive debt. Good luck to them.
    Our regulatory reform has been a boon to polluters. No longer do they have to worry about dumping toxic waste into our rivers or streams. Of course, the next generation (when I am out of office) will deal with the massive clean ups, birth defects and general health issues caused by this unregulated dumping. Good luck.
    Our trade policy has benefited…uh…China and Russia. Since China now controls most of the trade in Asia as well as making inroads in Africa while we try to negotiate 190 separate trade deals with each nation. Meanwhile, the EU chugs along as does Japan, working together to foster a better life for their people. Still, we can borrow even more money from ourselves to bail out the industries (farming, auto, steel) we are in the midst of destroying by tariffs. The massive debt can be handled by the next generation (when I am out of office). Good luck.
    Appointing a mass of activist reactionary judges will ensure that these disastrous policies will remain in place for at least a generation. Just as Citizens United created a new class of “citizen” not found in the Constitution, these judges are daily creating new “rights’ for businesses…to pollute, to destroy labor unions, to decide what kind of health care a woman can receive. The economic and social mess caused by these activist judges will take a generation to overcome. But, I will be out of office. So, good luck!
    As for the economy, when Mr Obama took office after the last phase of tax cuts for the wealthy under Bush, the economy had tanked. 10.4% unemployment. Auto industry and banking on the verge of total collapse. When he left office the economy was thriving…4.4 % unemployment and trending downward. But we will pretend Mr Trump did something to cause this trend. So, we will re-institute the very policies that caused the Bush recession..deregulation. and the stock market will BOOM.. for awhile. Good news for investors , tough luck for working stiffs. No worries, when the sh…t hits the fan and the next recession hits I will be out of office. Good luck.
    Your “representative” in Congress…. suckers.

    Most people likely would agree that the Trump Administration has improved the economy, as indeed it has for persons whose circumstances are much like his own.

    Good ol fashioned one-sided story telling !

    Here is a true Congressional Representative candidate who would make you all proud of the Democrat Socialists Party. She would also make the Hitler Brown Shirts and the Bolsheviks proud of her campaigning efforts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdZ9SQUQ-Jk
