The Vice President
Old Executive Office Building
Washington, DC 20501
Dear Mr. Vice President:
There will be Vermonters coming to Washington next week with others from across the nation to support you in the difficult task you face as President of the Senate. Others have shunned their sworn duties and much damage has been done. As a result, you will be standing alone at that moment to do your sworn duty to defend the United States against all foreign and domestic enemies by protecting our God given rights under the Constitution. What you do there will determine life or death for many in the future as well as for the survival of our Republic. A Biden presidency will undo much of the good works done in the four years of your administration and even if he is deprived of Senate control, the damage he will inflict by executive order will be incalculable. What will follow that as they take us down the path of socialism is written on the pages of world history and the tomb stones of the hundreds of millions of lives that it took.
We must have four more years to solidify all the good work done in the first four years that brought back those feelings we cherish of patriotism, pride, love of country, hope and assurance that we are back on the right track.
As patriotic, law abiding citizens, we maintained an abiding belief that if any person in power abused our Constitution and the rights it bestowed, that our Supreme Court was there to set the record straight, get us back on track and hold the offenders accountable. What a shock when in the face of such obvious Constitutional violations by the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, Nevada and Georgia, a valid challenge by Texas that it was negatively affected as a state by the illegal actions of these other states, our high court took a page from Joe Biden’s campaign style and they hid in the basement of the Supreme Court building.
The US Supreme Court must be called out to make a declaration that laws have been broken and the Constitution defiled. Mr. Vice President, if you reject the offer from the above states and declare the reason, is there little doubt that the Supreme Court will be forced to address the issues in a timely manner? How could they not? By doing that they will be affirming your decision to not accept those electors or any electors. When these Electoral Votes are removed from the Biden column, his numbers drop below that of President Trump, who as a result is re-elected.
We are asking that you take that bold step to restore the trust and integrity that was once the hallmark of American elections, envied by the world. We know there will be costs to pay for fighting this battle but how can we do otherwise? The forces at work to destroy our Republic are on the march and they must be stopped on January 6
. We will be there for you on Wednesday and we will be with you for all the days after and for as long as it takes.
Thank you and God Bless you Mr. Vice President.
