A Copy of My Latest Email To Senator John McCain

"... Senator McCain;
The latest Tea Party Tantrum has dropped your party's approval rating to 10 percent which means your disapproval rating is 90 percent. I feel sorry for you, having to watch your own party disconnect from the people and self destruct into extinction. I thought you would like to hear what one of the wisest economists in our nation said about this:
" Robert Reich
An old friend, who has been active in politics for more than thirty years, told me yesterday that he was giving up. "I can't stomach what's going on in Washington any more," he said. "The hell with all of them. I have better things to do with my life." My friend is falling exactly into the trap that the extreme right wants all of us to fall into -- such disgust and cynicism that we all give up on politics. Then they're free to take over everything. 
Make no mistake: Ted Cruz and his Tea Party followers, and the Koch brothers and their other financial patrons, are relishing this shutdown. They're delighted that 95% of the Environmental Protection Agency is down, so polluters can do whatever they want; that 80% of the Labor Department is down, so unscrupulous employers can trample on their employees; that much of the Securities and Exchange Commission is down, so corporations can have a field day. And they'd like nothing more than a default on the nation's debt in two weeks, because the resulting financial chaos will cause even more of us to become angry and cynical. That's the point: They feed off of anger and cynicism. 
Our response should be the opposite: We will not give in to bullies or intimidation, and nor will we give in to cynicism about what our government needs to be and who it needs to serve. We will remain engaged and active, and push every member of Congress as well as the President to remain steadfast."

I agree with Mr. Reich completely and so do most Americans. The harder you push, the harder we will fight you. Goodbye, Senator McCain.

Oh, and sort of a closing note, Isn't it a shame that the same people who invaded and infiltrated your party probably won't be reelected to dog catcher next midterm but their stink will reflect on everyone in the Republican Party for decades because no one in the GOP had the sense to use "REGULATION" (a word I know you can't stand) of this other thing your party seems to be disconnected from "ETHICS"? Have  nice day. ..."
