Letter: Support Constitution, not a party


I think we should get a few things straight. First, it was not a mob of Democrats who conducted an attack on our bastion of democracy. It was the Republican base of President Donald Trump. Second, it was not 147 Democrats who voted against accepting the results of the Electoral College after the riot was quelled. It was a vote by those 147 that said what the rioters did was justified.

Now, we have those same House members, and more, who do not want to vote for impeachment because it will not help “unify” the country.

However, there comes a place and time when one must be more committed to our country and the Constitution over that of a political party. Not taking a firm stance now signifies that our representatives are not a member of the Democratic or Republican parties but instead a member of the Trump party.

What will our representative do? Will she stand for our country or for Donald Trump?
