The e-mail that I sent to US Rep. Debbie Dingle, Michigan, today.
"You have an opportunity to lead. You could be a voice of reason. You could demonstrate to the citizens of Michigan and to the United States of America, that our government is not broken, it is just dinged up a bit. You could show that our United States Constitution is still valid. Are you up to the challenge?
We will be watching a lot of C-span the next few days. We will be listening to hear what is said in the United States Congress. We will be looking for true leaders.
Hollow slogans will do little to start a process of strengthening our political processes. We have always discussed issues, often with great passion. A true leader can reason with opposing views without flagrant emotional hostility.
Are you a leader?"
You may agree or disagree. You might say that I should have said... That is what I said. Believe me, many of my e-mails to her have not always been so polite. But, we have to try. Write to your respective representatives.
