Act with the burden of Americans who wants to preserve a strong America.

Today, let us each think and act as individual American citizens. Let us act with the burden of Americans on both sides of the aisle who want to preserve a strong America. Please e-mail and call your congressman and senators today.

We must condemn the words and actions of Jan. 6 as 100 percent wrong! Beginning at 11 a.m. a) our president’s words undermined the validity of our electoral and constitutional processes b) his words instigated mob action, c) this mob acted to seize our nation’s Capitol d) this mob’s actions disrupted Congress’ fulfillment of its constitutional mandate of ratifying presidential election results.

Thank God our democracy survived a challenge from within instigated by our president. Thank law enforcement, which was able to restore order. Thank God Congress was able to reconvene, in a largely bipartisan manner with greater respect and decorum than we have seen in some while, fulfill its constitutional charge to ratify the results of the Nov. 3 election.

Ask your member to cosign the Jan. 6 “Letter to Vice President Pence ‘’ originating in the Judiciary Committee. This letter needs bipartisan sponsorship and cosponsors. The letter seeks to invoke the “The Twenty-fifth Amendment (Amendment XXV) to the United States Constitution which says that if the President becomes unable to do his job, the Vice President becomes the President. This can happen for just a little while, if the President is just sick or disabled for a short time.”

Clearly our president is delusional, mentally unstable and possibly traitorous. Section 4 provides: “Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”

ACT your conscience.

Steve Oppenheimer, Atlanta
