I just wrote my REPUBLICAN congressmen

Just wrote them. Been writing them. They NEVER respond. The tables will soon turn. This is what I just wrote Senator Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy:

We are moving. Out of this state. And we finally have something to look forward to. We are moving to a more progressive state. A state whose politicians put their constituents before their party. We are moving to a state where we can be proud of our representatives in Congress.

Louisiana is last in everything. Education, pollution, jobs, growth. If Mother Exxon left, the state would have nothing. And now, the politicians, you Bill Cassidy and you John Kennedy, have tee totally voted party line ONLY. Why? We donít. We vote for our state.

Are you now the party of Pedophiles? The Mafia? The fricking Russians? Is THIS what Bobby Jindal, a man who totally ruined our state, did to you? A man who would not even go by his OWN name?
I am done. We are done. We contact you and voice our opinion and ask for your support. You do not listen. You donít call back. Hell, we canít even contact you most of the time! You never listen or bargain for our state. Well, you got your money now (from donors). You have your job now. But, I swear, come 2018 things will change. And we will work hard for that change, but in a different location, in a more progressive state.

We were born and raised here. This beautiful state. And now, thanks to republicans and their total agenda against environment, jobs, education, COLLEGE FOR MY GRANDCHILDREN, I am happy to say that you will now have 2 less votes. Yes, 2 doesnít matter to you now, but it can make or break an election.

We are done. And you will be done as well come 2018 AND/OR 2020 when Democrats take back the Congress and get rid of this Tax Break for the Wealthy that YOU voted for. We will remember. So letís look at some facts:

Itís now okay to increase our deficit as long as Republicans say so? Where were yíall when any Democrats wanted to increase our deficit?

Itís now okay to gut Social Security and Medicare? Like, really? You just lost the over 55 crowd who actually DO get out and vote.

Itís now okay to put children and families in healthcare crisis? (CHIPS, Medicaid?) Wait, though, I have to remember that when Bobby Jindal was our governor it was indeed okay to do away with Charity Hospitals. Thanks Bill Cassidy, the ďdoctorĒ.

And it is now okay to burden our children and grandchildren, who are now getting or trying to get their college degrees, with debt beyond their means? You guys have to be proud.

It is now okay to support a criminal, fascist, racist human being, child molesters, women harassers, Lord do I need to go on? It is now okay to support a CON man? A con man for all his life? You were conned. Bigly. But WE will NOT be conned. I read the history of this man. YOU obviously did not or you really didnít care. Such a shame.

It is now okay to do away with environmental issues in order to put money in corporate pockets and YOUR pockets? It is now okay to back the insanity of the Mercerís?

Always remember, evil is done in darkness. And you guys voted for this tax cut ONLY for the wealthy in the wee hours of darkness.

You have made a deal with the devil. And as a white, Christian, middle class, retired state worker I have to tell you, YOU have to live with yourself. What would Jesus do? I can live with myself. I pray you will be able to live with yourself.

1. +1 . I feel your pain, I have written Cornyn and Cruz knowing it will not matter to them.

It is on their records though. It can be a little cathartic to do this.

Best of luck on your move!

2. That was awesome!!!!

Sorry you guys are leaving the state you love. Damn that Bobby J! He literally ripped your state to shreds. He decimated the school system in Louisiana.
Senators donít usually answer controversial emails and voicemails because they have six year terms. They play nice to get elected and then disappear until their next election. I hope you find success and happiness in the state you are moving to, good luck!

3. Piush Jindal?

That name would never play in Louisiana.

Well said, and recommended.

5. Yeah, Piyush

 

It's funny. Years ago I wrote to a blog about his REAL birth name and THEN people knew. Piyush always wanted to be Bobby Brady, from the Brady Bunch. What a goob!
