Dear Senator Tillis,

At the top of your web page this morning there are two banners that say you are “Fighting.” This language adds to the division of our great country. Our country became great by working together. Your marketing messages should be designed to get your supporters to cease to be inflamed at their perceived enemies.

By using the word “Fight” repeatedly, YOU are pouring gas on a fire that MUST be quenched with bipartisan LEADERSHIP!

Please do the right things to heal our country.

• Call out anyone and everyone who fed into the CRAZY conspiracy theory of “Stop The Steal”

• LEAD or at least join a truly moral campaign to ostracize GOP factions and persons who are taking steps to stop impeachment of our Traitor in Chief, Donald Trump, including Sen. Ted Cruz, Rep. Kevin McCarthy and others

• Actively LEAD or join and verbally support efforts to call out those who engage in CRAZY conspiracy theories, such as Marjorie Taylor Green

It is up to you and those you interact with (in government and citizens in North Carolina) to recognize that using bold words to do nothing but gain and keep political power is counterproductive to stopping the slide of weak government. If you and we do not start DOING THINGS that actually and actively heal and build, our country will continue to wane.

The world is competitive and the U.S.A. will soon be overtaken fair and square by countries that actually work together for THEIR success. I’m not talking about some crazy conspiracy theory; I’m saying that Darwinism rules. When an elected representative, like you, does little positive YOU are actively working to create negative outcomes.

DO GOOD THINGS!!!

Craig Witter
