“At this moment in America’s history when the democracy to which my father pledged himself and the Constitution that he swore to uphold, and did faithfully uphold, are being degraded and chipped away at by a sneering, irreverent man who traffics in bullying and dishonesty, you stay silent.”—Patti Davis
IndieDems to Senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue, and Representative Barry Loudermilk: Reagan daughter Patti Davis obviously had you in mind when she wrote those heartfelt words.

Can any Georgia Republican be so blind they truly do not see the sewer of a morally and intellectually corrupt Republican Party they are swimming in? Read Patti Davis’ words and see the light:
As you read the following, remember that Isakson, Perdue, and Loudermilk have given their stamp of approval to every word and deed of Donald Trump.
