Dear Senator Young
Let’s be honest with each other. Trump is a shallow pond with no desire to objectively study or understand any issue because he alone already knows how everything works. His ignorance of global economics is yet another manifestation of his stunning superficiality.
Free trade works, and launching a discretionary trade war with China is, as Senator Sasse has had the courage to say, “is nuts.” Mr. Young, I am a native Hoosier and you are my senator. The threat of tariffs on soybeans will hit Indiana hard.. VERY hard. And, the cost of everyday items – the stuff we “common people” buy will also go up. Does Trump know how much a new washing machine or television costs? Do you?
My question to you is how long are you planning to remain silent and implicitly support a president that is pursuing his own irrational, destructive agenda? He is NOT a republican, so why are you sitting on the sidelines as I watch my retirement fund drop on a daily basis.
The facts are the president inherited a strong economy and now he’s screwing it up… and for absolutely no reason except to feed his insatiable, narcissistic ego, and to gin up his white nationalist, xenophobic base. Please tell me you see that for what it is and that you are not a part of his tribal, jingoistic agenda. Yes, Hoosiers tend to be conservative, but we’re not complete idiots either.
People really do vote their pocketbooks, and when they realize how much the president has consistently lied to them, they will vote against those who were in a position to stop him and did nothing. Senator Young, I implore you to get off the bench and get in the game to protect Hoosiers and protect America. Isn’t that in the oath you swore when you took office?
I believe history will show that one of the greatest domestic enemies our country ever faced was Donald Trump. What will you tell your grandchildren you did to protect the country from him?
Fellow Hoosiers, here is contact information for Senator Young. Let him know what you think.
