Stand Up For America

Today, President Donald Trump declared that it was "treasonous" for Democrats to withhold applause for his State of the Union address last week. As you well know, Republicans generally withheld applause for President Obama's State of the Union address during his 8 years in office, following a long tradition stretching back over many Democratic and Republican administrations. Withholding applause is a form of speech protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Suggesting that it is "treasonous" undermines our democratic government and is contrary to our country's fundamental principles as expressed in the Constitution more than two centuries ago. Tell the American people and President Trump that disagreeing with the president is NOT treasonous. Tell Donald Trump that members of the Congress swear an oath to uphold the Constitution; they do NOT swear an oath to agree with whoever the president happens to be.
