Letter to the Editor: Budd a conservative in name only

To the editor:

Let the record show that on Dec. 10, 2020, Davie County’s U.S. Rep. Ted Budd signed a letter asking the Supreme Court to review the selection of presidential electors in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Rather than supporting the freedom of local Americans to govern themselves, Rep. Budd has asked the Supreme Court in Washington to impose its will on four American states.

Rather than protecting us from activist judges, Rep. Budd has asked nine Supreme Court justices to change what millions of Americans have already decided.

Rather than defending the Constitution as written by our founding fathers, Rep. Budd has asked the Supreme Court to rewrite those sacred words in pursuit of his own political agenda.

Let history show that on Dec. 10. 2020, Rep. Ted Budd chose tyranny over democracy.

When we vote to elect our representatives, let us remember that Ted Budd is a conservative in name only.

May God bless America and protect us from tyranny.

Dan Callahan,     Cary
