Letter to my congressman, Bradley Byrne Dist 1. (R-AL) "Now I Fear You"

NOW I FEAR YOU

I did vote for you in the primary because the alternative was so much worse.*
I have disagreed with many, if not most, of your policy positions since you took office.

But now I fear you.
It frightens me that you continue to support Donald Trump in spite of the fact that he is undermining and damaging the very security of our nation. I won't go into details. I know that you have all of the same information that I do...if you watch anything other than Fox News

I fear you because I know that, unlike many others of your cohorts, you are an intelligent, educated person.
I written you about this before, but it still pains me that you and your party are now blatantly and unapologetically putting your political party above all else.
Above your family.
Above your faith.
Above your country.
Above your duty to the oath you swore and to and the constitution.
Above everything else.
Uber alles.
Does that have a familiar ring?

Now the good news.
It's still not too late. Not to late to come to your senses.
Ask yourself "Is it more important for me to get re-elected (or elected to the senate) or to do what, in my heart of hearts, I know is the right thing to d?."
Please ponder this.

*There was NO Democratic challenger to Byrne in the primary or general election. His repug opponent was a hair-on-fire tea partier. Democrats in the county organized to vote for Byrne (open primary) as the lesser of two evils.
Now he is running for the repug nomination to go against Dem senate incumbent Doug Jones.

P.S. Byrne was a Dem until the late 90s.

1. A former-Trump-voting friend of mine said the other day--

"The last 2.5 years have been a disaster. What do you do with a president who just cares about himself?"

I held back from saying, "That was clear when you voted for him." I just nodded sadly.

Then he said, "Of course, it's both parties--"

I interrupted him. "No, only one party nominated and still supports that narcissist. You can't blame anyone but your own party."

He wasn't happy, but I had to say, "You listened when he told you you should love him and hate everyone who doesn't love him, including friends like us and both your children. You KNOW that's the mark of an abuser, telling you can love only him, that everyone you used to love is your enemy."

2. Good luck with your letter, my dear trof!

I suspect the odds are against your hearing back.

I hope I'm wrong.
