To the Editor,

Directed towards Sen. Patrick Leahy and Sen. Bernie Sanders:

Your political partisanship is disgusting.

You are part of a dysfunctional group characterized by blind, prejudiced, and unreasoning allegiance to a “progressive” party that exalts central government and dismisses the individual and, by the way, lost the election.

I do not see adult behavior in you, but rather arrogant scorched-earth demagogue and a suck-up weakling to your party. Your legions refuse to be governed (read “#resist”) where bias dominates, not patriotism, not compliance to a standard of law and tradition. You are upstarts.

Specifically I rebuke your failure to support the Honorable Neil Gorsuch as purely selfish and not democratic at all. Let me say it again, your lost the election.

Furthermore, you are hypocritical- copious statements of your cohorts in divisiveness are everywhere.

Obstructionist, recalcitrant, obstreperous- you are a threat.

Are you aware of Benjamin Franklin’s quote at the Constitutional Convention 1787, when addressed by an individual “We have a Republic if you can keep it.” Our Republic is threatened- you are the rabid vandals.

Fie upon you.

Robert Lout
