Chances are you voted November 3rd, 2020. The evidence is clear that most of us voted. It was a historical turnout for our nation, one I’m proud to have participated in and witnessed. Voting is a wonderful start to a life of civic engagement. Yet, like any good relationship, what you do, when you do it and how you do it matter most of the time. We’re in a pivotal moment in our history as citizens of the United States of America. Who governs and how is all of our concern. If and when we abstain from our duty to give voice to our concerns and communicate with your elected officials, then just like any neglected relationship, we will encounter disappointment.
“They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest…” ~Article I, Section VI of the Constitution of the United States of America
Today, we have a chance to call our elected officials and tell them how we want them to vote. Personally, I want all our officials to be held accountable for their actions, just like any of us. What’s more important than that is that as many of us are heard by our elected officials as often as possible, especially when there are key votes and legislative reviews. Without our involvement, our elected official would otherwise serve a few active constituents, or worse, their own interests. Don’t give away your power. Take the next step, and tell your senators how to vote on the second Impeachment of Donald Trump. The United States Senators elected by every state work for us. Remind them of that fact today. Make calls to your state senators. It only takes about ten minutes. We need a two-thirds majority vote in the Senate to convict Trump, so every vote counts. It’s now, or never for our democracy.
Find your two state senators on this list of all U.S. Senators for the 117the Congress. Yes, Trump is gone from office, and now we must make sure that his brand of rabid and toxic masculinity does not resurface. He lost his privileges, honor and trust when he elevated lies above truth and our democracy. It’s up to “WE THE PEOPLE” to make sure he doesn’t come back. He’s earned that. Let’s hold him accountable for words, deeds, actions and inaction. That takes more than flying a flag on a lawn; we have to active in our democracy.
Each Senator has one vote; make sure they get instruction from you which way to cast it. Republicans are the main opposition to holding Trump accountable.
