Republicans vow to write even more strongly-worded letters in retirement if Democrats allow illegals to vote in 2024 election

WASHINGTON, DC—In a bold and unprecedented move, a group of Republican congressmen have vowed to up the ante in their quest for justice by promising to write even more strongly-worded letters in retirement if Democrats allow illegal immigrants to vote in the 2024 election.

Standing in front of the Capitol, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) delivered an impassioned speech to a crowd of dozens, primarily composed of staffers and curious tourists. “We, the undersigned, will not stand idly by while the integrity of our elections is compromised,” Johnson declared, holding aloft a pen as if it were a mighty sword. “If the Democrats proceed with this travesty, I swear on my future retirement, I will write the most scathing, sternly-worded letters you’ve ever seen.”

The pledge, which has been signed by nearly a dozen Republican congressmen nearing retirement, promises a barrage of correspondence that will “shake the very foundations of the postal system.” The letters, which will be written on high-quality stationary, will express “profound disappointment” and “grave concerns” about the direction of the country.

“We’re not just talking about your run-of-the-mill letter here,” insisted Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). “These letters will have underlining, bold font, and possibly even italics. We might even consider switching to a darker shade of ink to convey the depth of our outrage.”

The announcement comes amidst growing concerns among Republicans that Democrats might allow illegal immigrants to vote in the upcoming election, a move they claim would undermine the democratic process. While no such proposal has been formally introduced, the mere possibility has prompted the preemptive epistolary strike.

Critics of the Republican plan have been quick to point out the limitations of such an approach. “Writing letters is nice and all, but it doesn’t exactly stop legislation,” commented political analyst Sam Eagle. “It’s like bringing a quill to a knife fight.”

Nevertheless, the Republican congressmen remain undeterred. “People underestimate the power of a well-crafted letter,” said Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY). “When I retire, I will have all the time in the world to perfect my prose. Each letter will be a masterpiece of rhetorical indignation.”

In response, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) simply shrugged and said, “We welcome their feedback, as always. It’s good to know that in their retirement, our colleagues will still be engaging in the democratic process, even if it’s through the postal service.”

As the debate rages on, one thing is clear: the pen is mightier than the sword, especially when wielded by a retired congressman with a lot of free time. So, as the country hurtles towards the 2024 election, voters can rest assured that, regardless of the outcome, there will be a barrage of meticulously written letters expressing deep concern and righteous indignation.

And isn’t that what democracy is all about?
