The NM GOP wanted to share a heartfelt and perceptive letter written by Rob Wood to New Mexico U.S. Sen. Tom Udall.
Rob expressed his anger and frustration after Udall considered President Trump's decison to go ahead with some national fireworks displays a waste of money. Rob believes our nation is facing a critical juncture, and that we need to do everything we can to drive voters to action.
Here's Rob's letter:
Without hope, the heart grows sick. Was it a waste of money to have all those fighter jets fly over to honor hospital workers? We need this even if it does not seem logical to some. My thoughts go out to all the newly nationalized immigrants that stand and recite our Pledge of Allegiance, that you so championed for, that spent years trying to be a part of this great nation and what they must feel when Americans in powerful positions like yourself say we can't afford to celebrate the greatness they sacrificed everything to be apart of. Americans want to know that we are all winners and celebrate accordingly. Obviously, the Senator has never been on a battlefield and felt when gripped with uncertainty the energy one's body fills with as our jets and artillery passes over us when pinned down praying for help. Exhilaration is what I felt coupled with hope.
You are a sick person in your attempt to deny us of the well-earned rockets' red glare and the bombs bursting in the air. Our flag still stands and America needs that reassurance. Your actions expose that you are not a patriot which means you do not represent the values and importance our great nation stands for. You should be kicked out of office for subversive action with the intent to undermine our nation and all that it stands for. Please step aside so the ones that truly love America can walk on by.
