My SIXTY-FIFTH 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 - the constituent who writes for the local Pittsburgh-based political blog, "2 Political Junkies."

We have to talk about this week's G7 meeting and the summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

In the space of a couple of days this week, Donald Trump, the man whose administration and policies you support (and the man, let's all remember, you voted for) picked an unnecessary fight with Canada (a country that's been among our closest allies politically as well as geographically) and yet took time out to say it was "an honor" to meet Kim Jong Un, the North Korean dictator, a man who is guilty of committing some of the most horrific crimes against humanity.

Simple question for you this week: If this isn't enough for you to finally turn your back on the leader of your own party and say, "Enough!" what then, is?

By remaining silent, Senator, you are complicit in all of Trump's indecencies. You do know that, don't you? You could be among those doing something to stop him from committing more damage to the country. If you choose not to, then part of the responsibility for that damage will be yours. You do know that, don't you?

When can we expect to hear you speaking out?

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

Trump signs Manchin-Toomey or another national gun registry law or the Assault Weapons Ban.
Unless those laws only apply to registered Democrats.
