‘Present’ was the right response

Aloha Rep. Ms. Gabbard,

My name is Steve Yoder, one of your constituents on Kauai, and I just watched Sen. Mitch McConnell addressing the U.S. Senate live on TV. It was the best speech I’ve ever seen and heard a senator address our U.S. Senate. I do not support the impeachment of President Trump, as he has committed no crime. His only crime was what Senator McConnell said in that President Trump has simply ruffled the feathers of U.S. bureaucrats and is opposing the Democratic Party.

The president, though, is fulfilling his 2016 campaign promises to put our country back on course. His policies of lower taxes and reduced regulations are employing record numbers of Americans of every race and gender.

These same policies are also responsible for increasing their take-home pay. He’s keeping our borders secure against illegal immigration while supporting legal immigration. He’s earning the respect of our allies, in some cases begrudgingly, and giving every reason for our enemies to respect and fear American military might.

I called senators, Mazie Hirono and Brian Schatz, and told the staff members who answered the phone that I totally agree with Sen. Mitch McConnell’s senatorial speech today and that I disagree with the Democratic majority U.S. House of Representatives’ rushed, 12-week impeachment proceedings and yesterday’s impeachment vote. I do not approve of a Democratic partisan congressional vote setting the table to nullify my vote for President Trump, along with 63 million Americans on Nov. 8, 2016, thus undoing the 2016 presidential election. If we as Americans disagree with President Trump’s policies and/or mannerisms, the American electorate can elect someone else on Nov. 3, 2020.

Although I am not a constituent in Rep. Ed Case’s congressional district (CD1), I also called his office, stating the same to his staff member. I called your office, but your mailbox was full, thus the reason for this email.

I’m in total agreement with former New Jersey Sen. Robert Torricelli’s (D) comment today, “… one of the foundations of America’s success has been political stability.”

Thank you for not voting to impeach President Trump, but simply voting “present.”

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
