Her letter below was sent to me when I wrote to her (and others) about impeachment.
What a cop out answer..
I'm sorry, Senator Feinstein, but I cannot possibly agree with your sentiments here.
Impeachment proceedings would be divisive in a sense, yes. However, once the reality of the literal crimes of this administration became widely known through investigations, only the most die-hard supporters of the President and his administration would remain behind them.
The country is already sharply divided, but the majority want 2 things:
1)Our involvement in to be ended.
2)The Bush administration to truly be held accountable for their actions.
Senator, why is it that you think the congress is polling lower than the worst president in history?
It's because the people do not feel they are being represented.
As angry as they are at the regressive tilt that this nation has taken (note, I said regressive, not conservative, there is a difference), they are even more angry that the needs of the middle class are still being ignored, the oversight of the administration has been clumsy at best and regulation of the worst of the corporate/banking/military industries seems to not even exist.
I'm very proud to be a native of the great state of . I truly am.
There is no doubt in my mind that we truly have more to offer than any other state in the union should we go by what lies within those 50 boundaries.
I am proud of our technology, our agriculture and our progressive vision(s).
I am proud that our state was the first to send 2 women into the senate and that we are the state from which the speaker of the house hails.
That being said, I do NOT think that I am being heard in the house or the senate. I believe that the majority of Californians feel the same way as do Americans in general.
I know that my one letter is not going to change the world or your view.
But I feel it is not my right, but my obligation to speak my mind to those I have personally elected into office.
United States Senator
