This is an open letter to Sen. Richard Shelby, U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt and the entire Alabama Congressional delegation.
Last week, The Arab Tribune published a citizen’s open letter to you, which heavily criticized the president of the United States, and encouraged you to stand against his attack on the Constitution.
I immediately felt the need to pen a rebuttal open letter to express my opinion, which I feel aligns more with the overall climate in Arab, and our state generally.
In his letter, Mr. Auman criticized the members of the Republican Party for “selling their souls.”
He also described how he has lost the pride he had during the days of Reagan, as he looks at “how far we have fallen.”
As my elected representatives, it is important for you to know that these statements do not represent a majority opinion in our district.
Next, Mr. Auman attacked our president and U.S. foreign policy, imploring you to “stand against President Trump as he destabilizes NATO, Europe, the Middle East and our nation,” and “stand against Donald Trump as he hands power over to Vladimir Putin.”
Our founding fathers warned us about entangling alliances and meddling in the affairs of other countries (NATO, UN, WTO).
For many decades, our government ignored those warnings.
I urge you to stand firmly behind our president as he forges forward with an “America First” agenda that includes a less interventionist foreign policy.
He then attacked our president’s domestic policies by stating, “Stand against President Trump as he makes a mockery of the U.S. Constitution, the legislative branch and the judicial branch.”
I do not believe that our president is making a mockery of our country, and as my elected representatives, it is important that you know that these statements do not represent a majority opinion in our district.
I will agree with Mr. Auman when he stated, “we are at a dangerous crossroads in history.”
It has become apparent that the Democratic Party will stop at nothing to overturn the free election of our president. It has become apparent that the mainstream media will stop at nothing to aid these Democratic Party efforts.
I urge each of you to stand against the onslaught of attacks waged on our president almost daily.
Your legacies depend on it.
