Dear Dave Lewis:
I admit we have different political leanings, but generally I think you are a fair representation of your district – conservative, but generally reasonable (some would say boring – others would say that’s a good thing). Your bill to put some basic restrictions on medical cannabis in Montana is a great example of this. Your idea to withdraw from the UN, on the other hand, not so much.
So, here’s my question – is it like Pogie says? Is there a quota for unworkable, outlandish proposals that every Republican must fill if they don’t want to walk the plank into the TEA? Does this one super-outrageous bill fill your whole quota and get them off your back long enough to do something worthwhile? If that’s the case, well, congratulations – you’ve probably found the least practical, and therefore least destructive, way to keep up crazy appearances while in fact remaining a reasonable person.
If, on the other hand, you really really do believe we need to withdraw from the UN, I would like to briefly remind you of two things. One of them is smallpox. Adequately reminded? The second one is the Korean War. Even you noted that no nation has withdrawn from the UN. But nations have boycotted it. Go ahead and ask the North Koreans how awesome it is when your biggest ally decides to stop playing ball with the UN. Is that really what you want to do to our friends worldwide?
PS Seriously, getting rid of smallpox has got to be one of the best things humans have ever done. Better than landing on the moon, even.
