1. Text of the email I sent to both my Senators tonight:

Feel free to copy and use for your Senators.


My questions for you: What are you doing to protect the Postal Service? Why don't you understand and accept the need for emergency funding of the USPS? You don't seem to understand the value of this service to [state name] and to the nation. DeJoy's changes are an all-out assault on the USPS - removing sorting machines, mailboxes, personnel, resulting in a slowing of the mail He has an obvious conflict of interest in holding the position he's in, as he is highly invested in competitors to the USPS. Many businesses depend upon the reliable service the USPS has always given us. Further, Donald Trump, specifically, has a vested interest in making sure the postal service is crippled and not able to process the high volume of voting by mail that is expected in this election due to the COVID pandemic. Isn't it enough, Senator XXXXXXX, that Trump is soliciting and accepting Russian help in this election? Where is YOUR loyalty to THIS state and THIS country? Tell us, Senator XXXXXXX, what are you doing to protect [state name], the USPS, and the United States of America?

2. It's not only trump it's the Republican Party as a whole. They condone and allow all of it.

Lord only knows how many of them are part of the plan. It goes back to the 12 republicans in Russia on Independence Day. We have to stop saying trump is doing this, the Republican Party is doing this. They’re starving children by going on vacation when parents are desperate for help. All so they can allow trump to desecrate the post office. Once we let him lock the kids up it’s gone downhill fast.
