I am no expert

I listened to people on shows this weekend talk about the back channel talks in other administrations. I am not surprised those existed.
It seems to me however, that no one is asking the one thing that concerns me.

MOTIVATION: What is the motivation of the Trump administration to set up secret communications with Russia.??????? Is it for the good of the country (because nothing else they have done is) or for PERSONAL AND FINANCIAL protection.?????

Maybe I am naive and ignorant but I am suspicious of everything they do.

My Senator Lamar Alexander is on the committee to look at the House healthcare bill.

I sent him an email (I cannot speak calmly to him or his office). We have had previous exchanges on other subjects. I was extremely polite but I made a few points for him to consider. My first was that there are no women on this committee, I stated that I had never thought of him as a misogynist but if he did not immediately speak up about it, well....he would make him look guilty.

I shared my years of experience working as an RN at the hospital in his home town. I shared my gratitude for the health insurance I had for my breast cancer treatment.

It seems to me that so many other countries have payment for healthcare figured out and it makes no sense that we cannot.

I also shared that if we really believed in "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness". we should also believe that none of those are possible without believing that access to healthcare we can afford is a RIGHT.

I do not expect him to agree with me, but I had my say.

I did not threaten to work against him if he chose to run again, that is the best I could do.

I need your help writing this.

I am going to put it on Facebook, and I want it to be pretty good before I do.

If someone you love, maybe a parent, is a public figure and makes really ignorant statements, wouldn't you want to protect them from further embarrassment? I would think if you loved them, you would want to protect them from more public humiliation? Is it not a loving act to help someone who clearly has mental and emotional issues?

Can someone help me shorten it? I considered starting Dear Ivanka, but probably not. I think he might listen to her, is there anyone else? I really do not care about his embarrassment and humiliation, I am just looking for a way to stop him.
