A Message to My Congressman

Congressman

By – Jeffrey B. Stamm, Intellectual Conservative

Dear Elected Representative:

You are hereby placed on notice.

You have squandered the strength and solidarity of an entire nation and it will no longer be tolerated.

You may think that we, the people, are too stupid, lazy, or self-absorbed to notice your complicity, even sponsorship, in our gradual—now sudden—demise. True, large swaths of the country do, at times, demonstrate appalling levels of intellectual and moral sloth, but the majority of the citizens remain faithful to the Constitution and to the continued promise of this great nation. My fellow Americans have become awakened (not “woke”) by a steady and accelerating wave of naked selfishness and irrefutable incompetence by our ruling elites. That includes you.

It is not merely the current occupant in the White House that has become a genuine reflection of our government as a whole—decrepit, forgetful, unserious, and led around by a few powerful, cryptic elites who care nothing of the long-term well-being of the nation and its citizens—it is you, congressman, who also bears blame. It is you who has allowed the feeding upon the seed corn of our nation—economically, politically, intellectually, and culturally—in order to elevate yourself.

Oh, please don’t try to blame the other guy, the other party, or some other institution; the evidence has simply become overwhelming that all of you in that first and most important branch of government simply take us, and that great chain of events connecting the past, present and future which form the United States of America, entirely for granted. No more.

Should you happen to take this notice as a threat, allow me to apologize for being unclear, for this is a threat. No, not physically. Your life and your fortune are safe. But I do mean to imperil your sacred honor; that is, if you have any left.

We both know that you, being within the legislative branch of government, are, first and foremost, responsible for passing the annual budget for the functioning of our federal government. You are expected to carefully consider and allot monies—our monies!—for the various agencies and programs in the interest of the American people and have it presented before the president for signature by October 1st every year. Yet, you and your colleagues have accomplished this most basic assignment only four times in nearly fifty years—the last time being 1996 when many of our voters today had not yet even been born. Your “normalization” of endless CRs—continuing resolutions—that have always ended in some opaque and grotesque budgetary compromises and excesses that have not only contributed to our frightening levels of debt, but have enervated and deteriorated the abilities of our government entities to serve the security, and other, needs of the citizens.

Is it any wonder that only seven percent of Americans have a great deal of trust in Congress, according to a 2022 Gallup poll, while the most vilified and undermined of our institutions—the police, the military, and small business—occupy the top three most trusted spots? Is it mere coincidence that, while members of your body took (and continues to take) money from the pharmaceutical lobby at nearly 100 times the rate as that from the much-maligned NRA, death and addiction skyrocketed from their “legal” dope? Did your vote help pass the oxymoronic “Ensuring Patient Access and Effective Drug Enforcement Act” in 2016 that was secretly written by Big Pharma to gut the ability of DEA to thwart the ruthless and predatory marketing of prescription opioids?

And, aside from your brave utterances on cable news, why have you done nothing to compel, or at least shame, the executive branch to secure our nation’s border from fentanyl and other drugs? With nearly 300 drug poisoning deaths every single day—the equivalent of one 9/11 every ten days—along with their Mexican cartel salesforce pouring across the border to establish drug distribution cells in nearly every town across our nation, you do nothing more than remind us that you are “not in power,” or that you “don’t have the authority.” With all due respect, that’s bullsh*t! Since at least FDR’s time, we have stupidly allowed you to amass and centralize more and more power and authority in the corrupt and stench-filled feedlot that is Washington, D.C.

Should we, the “plain folks” who don’t constitute a “special interest group” that can sway you ruling elites with bloc voters or money or media love, decide to vote for you again this election, we will be watching as never before. We will hold you accountable to do what you should do, what you must do if we are to survive as a nation.

The American people have figured out that most of you do look down your noses at them. They see that, just like the globalist elites that constitute the pharmaceutical industry and their less sophisticated but every bit as evil twin, the Mexican drug cartels, you ruling elites also view traditional Americans as ever exploitable, expendable, even—dare I say it—deplorable. To paraphrase Philosophy Professor Harry Frankfurt, the “plain folks” are to you ruling elites what truth is to the bullshi*ter—not something to be directly and transparently opposed, but, rather, a group to be treated as insignificant, trivial, irrelevant.

The twenty-year tragedy of Afghanistan that culminated in the disastrous and deadly withdrawal last year laid bare the ugly truth that the word of America’s establishment elite no longer means anything. The promise—indeed, the covenant—that the nation would always honor the promises made to those citizens and our allies who sacrifice on America’s behalf has vanished like clouds over the Hindu Kush. The sudden and unexpected betrayal of our fellow Americans and our partners left behind in Afghanistan was shocking. It also revealed the ugly inevitability that my “leaders” could just as easily one day betray me in order to protect or elevate themselves.

I will no longer allow you to do essentially nothing as our fundamentally unserious executive branch allows—even incentivizes—the highly-focused, ethnocentric and shockingly violent Mexican cartels to flood this nation with deadly drugs that are decimating our citizens, along with a human invasion of not merely “poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” but murderers, thieves and criminals of every kind. Your continued failure to perform your sworn duty will, at minimum, saddle this nation with economic, medical, and cultural burdens for generations, if not forever. And since those Mexican cartels, like the warlords in Afghanistan, have already devoured their own nation and turned it into a narcostate, many of us “plain folks” across America are left wondering when you will finally do something before they devour ours.

Do your damn job! Do it on my behalf like you’re supposed to!

And consider yourself hereby placed on notice.

Jeff Stamm is a 40-year law enforcement veteran, having served as a Deputy Sheriff in Sacramento, California, a Special Agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and as the Executive Director of the Midwest High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) program. He is also the author of “On Dope: Drug Enforcement and The First Policeman” and speaks extensively on the global drug threat.

The article is so well written and touches on all the problems the radical left and liberal white house have created. The sad part about it is that not enough people get the message because the liberal media and the elites keep it from the voters who would turn this country completely around. We have to stop the radical liberal democrats somehow or this country is gone.

Bravo!!! Most of our politicians do not care about the American people. We are simply a tool for their power. They pit us against each other racially, sexually and economically. God willing we will make a very loud statement during the midterm elections.

I am going to send this notice to all my government “representatives” who represent their own interests not mine. I suggest others do the same. Anyone who has been in elected office more than one term is still there because they have joined the corrupt ranks. Throw them ALL out! They don’t represent you. Never have. Never will.

First and foremost we have to have a flat tax rate, 8% federal. Start all over, don’t let congress have an endless, no limit spending spree! Remove the lobbyists from K street. Let the lobbyist go to the states and corrupt whom ever they want. The budget should be formalated and directed for our military, protecting our borders, our judicial system, and no money given to foreign nations. At the end of each year, see what is available and spend with-in our taxes collected. Congress can not borrow money for their own special interests. Don’t let them control the purse-strings. Spend only what we have!

I wish AMAC would put this in a petition form addressed to every representative and senator in the Federal government. It needs to go to congress person from every state!!!!! I’d sign it in a heartbeat. The problem is that individuals write and write and write, but it’s one letter, one person at a time and discarded. It will take ALL OF US AT ONE TIME to get their notice. I’d like to see a similar letter sent to them from millions of people who feel the very same way, but one at a time we have no voice.

Perhaps a staffer will skim through but then this letter would most likely be tossed or at best garner a boilerplate form response. While I wholeheartedly agree with the content, sitting congress members will be unmoved unless and until their place at the feeding trough is threatened. Term limits and absolute financial transparency of members, close family, and associates must be put in place and enforced. With the current level of subversion of the DOJ it will be hard to find an effective instrument to effect the needed reforms.

These people who are supposed to represent us – the people are no longer represented! They are only on the job to go along to get along, don’t rock the boat! How many more people who are conservative have to be vilified, lose their jobs, etc. for not going along with the democrats? There is no debate allowed, no difference of opinion allowed because they will destroy you! And our representatives who will not speak out on our behalf is not acceptable!

Send a message to all the people in Congress, Democrat or Republican that they are there, to do what’s best for America and the American people, they are not there to pad their own pockets, and we need to do whatever it takes to improve America’s standing in the world.
Let them know and understand they work for us, we are the Boss, they will do as We say, and that they will protect and defend the Constitution.
