A Letter to Massachusetts:
Dear Swing-voters in Massachusetts,
you indeed have a reason to end a decade-long rule by one party over the Senate seat that was filled last week. Even more taking into account that your informal royal family – the Kennedys – have taken this spot for so long. Despite me being a strong supporter of the policies usually attached to these Democrats, I refuse to like the fact that people hold quasi-lifelong seats.
Anyhow, this decision was more than about Dems vs. Reps. It was about the sake of milions of uninsured Americans that are dying due to little illnesses in their trailers in Arkansas or their slum-flats in Detroit. You killed them by postponing health-care reform even longer! More to it, you took part in the destroying of the world as now it becomes even more unlikely to get the – already weak – Waxman-Markey bill through Congress. Hence, an international treaty or even actions in other nations become more distant. You are in part responsible for the death and suffering of billions of people around the world. And this comes on top of your already huge amount of „climate sins“.
Dear voters in Massachusetts, the once beloveth state. You screwed it up. Better try next time! Mid-terms are coming up. Make sure to vote a reform-friendly and climate-thoughtful politician!
