My FORTY-SEVENTH Open Letter To Senator Pat Toomey

I'll be dropping this letter to Senator Pat Toomey in the mail today:
Dear Senator Toomey:

It's me, again. Your constituent who also writes for the local Pittsburgh-based political blog, "2 Political Junkies."

This week, I'd like to ask you about treason.

In Ohio yesterday, Donald Trump delivered a speech about tax reform when he briefly mentioned his State of the Union Address. He first mentioned the "half of the room" who cheered for him and then he mentioned the other half who didn't.

Then he accused that other non-cheering half of being "un-American" and "treasonous" for simply not applauding him. .Adding they were traitors because they showed "they certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much" by not applauding him.

Senator, you've been to a few State of the Union Addresses, right? There were times when you didn't applaud President Obama at one if his addresses, right? Were you committing treason when you sat silently in a room half-filled with cheering Democrats?

If not, then how can you continue to support, as president, a man who just accused some of your Senatorial and Congressional colleagues of committing treason for simply not applauding him enough? The Constitution is very clear on a definition of treason. Political dissent is not a part of it. So which side are you on? Trump's or the Constitution's?

I await your response.
And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.

Toomey should print out this article and send it to Dayvoe .
"The big lie isn't Democrats saying Trump is wrong to do this. The big lie is Democrats acting shocked after doing it themselves for years."
