Editor, The Smithfield Times:
To U.S. Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine, we do not see you representing your constituency. If you do not begin doing so, your reelection will be less likely next time you run.
We have often voiced displeasure with your mishandling of our Southern border. Other countries don’t allow what your administration does at our border. A National Guard brother is dead because of your policies.
The drastic increase in smuggled Fentanyl is ruining many communities because of your policies. Have you read the statistics in America?
Drug cartels and gangs of South America make millions of dollars, not only from drugs but from human trafficking, of all types, due to your policies.
Your policies regarding energy dependence vs. independence from other countries are a failure. Fuel prices were drastically rising before the war in Ukraine. You made every attempt to blame “the Putin price rise.” This does not wash. We laugh when you say it. Had U.S.A. remained the energy producer we were before you changed it all for the worst, we would not be dependent on Putin, or any other country.
All this has been verified, documented and reported, even by the news media.
I must stop. I get sadder, angrier and more disappointed. Your administration and your representation cause grief. Talking about violence that goes unprosecuted in America will be too much for me.
Are you proud of your policies? We are disappointed, frightened by them.
