An Open Letter to Mr. Mike Pence

I'm not interested in your brand of politics Mr Pence. I don't believe in hate. 
I don't believe in bigotry. I don't believe in using religion as a tool to get what you want.
I don't believe in banning whole classes of people just because you don't like them. I don't believe in Russia. I don't believe in big corporations. I don't believe government has a place in my bedroom. I don't believe government has a right to tell anyone what they can or can't do with their bodies. I don't believe in War. I don't believe in you or your president. I don't believe you have the best interests of ALL Americans at heart.

I do believe that ALL lives matter not just those of old wealthy rich white guys.i do believe in a woman's right to choose. I do believe in love. I do believe every one has a God given right to love whom they may. I do believe in everyone's right to marry whom they love. I do believe our planet is in great peril. I do believe our climate is changing and not for the better. I believe big oil kills our planet. I believe we will soon run out of water for our planet's citizens, if we all don't drown in the rising sea levels. I do believe we need to get rid of all assault weapons, including nuclear. I do believe we need healthcare for ALL regardless of pre existing conditions. I do believe all religions should be recognized and allowed to perform their individual services including the Muslims. I do believe in Freedom of Speech including Freedom of the Press. I do believe our Government must remain neutral in all areas. I believe in WE THE PEOPLE!

I am a poor Gay Christian male. I live by the golden rule. I treat others how I wish to be treated. Other than that I live and let live.

I'm do not nor will I ever accept a government that goes against these principles.

Therefore I'm asking you to not send me any more of your ridiculous mailings because you and mr Trump will never get my vote on anything.

Thank you

Here is a letter I wrote to my local US Congressman
Hello Congressman

My name is Charles and I reside in your district. I'm writing to you with some grave concerns.

The text from the first amendment of the US Constitution read..

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Your President's attacks on the first Amendment are grounds for impeachment. He took an oath of office swearing to protect and defend the constitution he is not doing so by attacking the very ideals We The People hold dearly to our hearts as American citizens.

Your President's attacks on innocent Muslims goes against the very ideals this country was founded upon. Freedom of Religion is the basis on which this nation came into existence. To violate that is to violate the very trust of the American people.

On that note we are all immigrants in this nation all our families come from far away lands. The only actual native people of these lands are the Indians. To ban any group of people from entrance to this country goes against the very ideals of a open democracy. And don't think for a minute we didn't notice missing from the list of countries were those your President has financial ties too.

Also on the foreign policy it is my personal belief that your President's ties to The Russian government are grounds for Treason. We all grew up with the knowledge that Russia was no friend to the United States and recent events in Russia with regard to their Human Rights violations is of grave concern to many in this country.

On a more personal note, Your President's views and treatment of the GLBTQIA community are sickening and I personally will not stand for bigotry in any form. I am a legally married gay male and am very fearful of the platform of hate being adopted by both Mr Trump and Mr Pence amongst many others in the Republican Party. It took me nearly 20 years to obtain my certificate of marriage and I'm not about to let that go with out a fight. Hate Bigotry Sexism Egotism Racism and blatant ignorance have no place in American politics or American governance.

At the very least Your President needs to be aware that he now represents Every American not just those who votes for him or who can line his campaign war chests. The removal of every reference to the GLBTQIA community from the White House website and other government websites is a crime and I personally won't stand for it. Your President's actions do not represent me my community or the views of many in this country.

His denial of scientific fact of climate change is also a grave concern. With melting polar ice caps and rising sea levels being very real concerns. One only need to look at the bevy of terrible hurricanes in the last 15 years to see there is a cause for major concern especially here in Florida and elsewhere along the gulf coast. One only need to remember New Orleans and Katrina to get an ideal at how devastating these storms can be.

I'm asking you to begin impeachment proceedings immediately and tell the president we are not gonna deal with his greed ignorance and bigotry. How a man with ties to the hate organization The KKK ever became president is beyond the comprehension of many in this country and should be grounds for impeachment by itself.

Thank you
A concerned Gay American Citizen
