Dear Republican representatives and senators,

Your time has come. This is your moment to go down in history for putting your own egos and agendas aside, in order to save your country.

We hear that, behind closed doors, you acknowledge that this president is corrupt, lawless and unhinged. He is. Those of us with eyes to see and ears to hear, know this as well.

But we also hear that you are afraid to lose votes and lose your powerful positions. Well, you know that your first obligation is to the Constitution of the United States. Your own desires and aims are subservient to your awesome responsibility to your country.

This is your call to speak truth in the light. For as Jesus once said, “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?”

We stand at a crossroads. Will we keep our republic, as Ben Franklin challenged us to do? Or is this the moment that marks the failure of our aspirations of greatness? Our future really is in your hands. Will you put your petty and temporary wants ahead of the enduring integrity of our Constitution?

Future generations of Americans need you to do the right thing now.

Gina Zhdilkov, Bountiful
