Better That Than Tied to A Stake
Michael, This is the best thing you have ever written. And you have written some amazing and wonderful pieces. This, however, is of the magnitude that it should be read at 4th of July celebrations, on Flag Day, of course on January 6th, and should be placed on the cork boards of every history teacher's and every law professor's classroom. There are many more places it should be read and displayed, but others will come up with those ideas. Right now, I am just going to close and reflect, to paraphrase Elton John, on how fortunate I am that you are in my world.
I think you hit the nail on the head with this one. I would like to see this piece appear in national newspapers for all to read. Especially publications read by Trump followers
My greatest desire is that the trials are televised on television for all to see!
OPEN LETTER TO
DONALD J. TRUMP
I hope this letter finds you well.
I am writing to you as a concerned and deeply troubled citizen of the United States who believes in the principles of democracy and the values that our great nation stands for. I write today to express my vehement opposition to both your actions and those of your GOP enablers in Congress, who are supporting and attempting to reinstate you as President, thereby endorsing a violent and undemocratic attempt to overthrow the government of the United States.
I cannot remain silent as Congressmen and Congresswomen who should be safeguarding the principles of democracy are instead attempting to undermine and dismantle our democracy itself. It is deeply troubling to witness elected officials who have the duty and responsibility to protect the Constitution and uphold the will of the American people betray their oath and act against the best interests of our country.
The recent events have left no doubt that there are individuals within the Republican Party who seek to maintain and consolidate power at any cost, even if it means subverting the will of the people. The blatant attempts to dismantle the voting system, which is the fundamental pillar of any democratic society, are nothing short of an assault on the principles that our nation was founded upon. It is an affront to the countless Americans who have fought and died to protect our freedoms.
Furthermore, there is a growing concern among the American people that your agenda, alongside your GOP enablers, aims to turn the United States into an authoritarian state. The fear that our country could descend into a government ruled by a permanent dictator is not unfounded, but a logical consequence of the actions being taken by certain factions of the Republican Party.
As a concerned citizen, I demand that you immediately cease all efforts to undermine our democracy. Upholding the Constitution and respecting the will of the American people is not an option, but a fundamental duty for anyone holding governmental office. I implore you to focus on unity and healing, rather than perpetuating division and further eroding the very fabric of our nation.
I am not alone in my concerns. Millions of Americans stand against these undemocratic actions and want to see our elected officials guided by the principles and values that our great nation was built upon. It is high time for you and your GOP enablers to listen to the voices of the people you were elected to represent and reaffirm your commitment to the ideals of democracy.
In closing, I urge you to reflect on the damage that your actions are inflicting upon our country and the message it sends to the rest of the world. Your legacy will be forever tainted unless you choose to take a stand for democracy, rule of law, and the principles that this nation holds dear. The American people deserve better, and I hope that you will find the strength and wisdom to lead us in a direction that upholds justice and restores faith in our democratic institutions.
Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter.
Americans for democracy

He is a cancer on this nation. This morning I heard him on NPR saying how "sick" Jack Smith - Jack smith, for heaven's sake! - is. There is only one sicko in the house - and that is Donald. J. Trump .
Michael, after all these years, we love you still.
And we are lucky to have such an American as you in our lives.
So very well put! He is so lucky to be an American. He almost destroyed an amazing country that is still in progress of reaching it full potential as a true democracy. We won’t hang him or end his selfish pursuits with a firing squad. He will, however, get the justice he deserves for all those lives he has hurt, black families, brown families, red families, white families, families of various religions and sexual orientations, mixed racial families, including the women he disgraced with his unwelcome sexual assaults. He will be incarcerated : stopped from continuing his mad destruction of this beautiful country. This is a good and hopeful outcome. Now move forward America! Become what was started by our forefathers, what many have given their lives for, what we truly can become if we all work together for the good of all.
Trumpypants has always been yapping about killing offenders that cross him or his America (it’s the Trumpist America). May he go far, far away. And never be heard from again. Buh bye!
Right on Michael! I can't wait til that schmuck hears that steel door go CLANK!
The Justice Dept. is wringing its hands over what to do about Trump. They told him not to threaten any jurors, potential witnesses, etc., or they'd "hold" him, and yet that's virtually all he's done over the last three days ("IF YOU GO AFTER ME, I'M COMING AFTER YOU!"). So, they should lock him up as promised, right? And yet, all they're talking about is a "protective order", which I'm sure he and his lawyers are laughing at.
Just one question: if a Black bank robber or drug dealer were out on bail, and he tweeted "IF YOU GO AFTER ME, I'M COMING AFTER YOU", you wanna tell me how long it would take the Justice Department to lock him up?! Never mind: it happened before you got to the end of that sentence!
Yes, it IS a fullfilment of his rights to be tried by a jury of his peers!
Thank you again, Michael. I sincerely hope that hat your and my faith in the American justice system finally holds. And I hope against hope that the smallness of Trump’s base is finally shrunken enough to turn some Republicans towards the truth
Thank you, Michael! This is perfect! You always give me hope for this country!
As always, Michael, a verbal treat that skewers and stings the intended target! Brilliant!!
