Dotard Trump just tweeted “Great Time in New Hampshire last night. Place was maxed out, totally packed… energy was really great to see.” Hmmm… I think whats even more funny is the guy in the top row settling in for a nap!

To those of you who have made the decision to run for a position within the government of the United States of America, I congratulate and honor your decision to put aside your personal feelings in order to serve our great nation. To be a representative and spokesperson for the betterment of all people within you districts without bias or prejudice of anyone. That you would choose to be a champion for our constitution is a noble endeavor and I applauded you. In order to obtain this position, you will need to have the rest of the people behind you in the pursuit of your goal. I will do my part to help you secure my vote with a list of information to make you journey much easier.
The one thing that is the foundation for receiving my support is to understand what I expect of you. You are after all going to me representing me and I am one of the “we” in “We the People”. I encourage you to read the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States. To make it as simple as possible I reiterate “READ” and not “READ INTO”. I have included it below to assure we are on the same page.
- First, note the first 5 words. There is no distinction or separation of any kind for “people” which means everyone, no exceptions.
- Second, we are to be working towards a more perfection union. That’s pretty clear too, we’re not choosing sides or teams in opposition to others.
- Pay particular attention to the rest of it and apply those statements and how they should be applied to the individual articles that will be contained in the constitution.
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Now that you have an understanding of where I am coming from, here is what I will be looking for from you as you will be representing me to the world.
I am concerned about our present and future. What anyone in the past has done or not done is only to be considered as a milestone and as an after action report. I want to know what you will do and how you plan to make us a more perfect union. Any bashing or diatribes toward previous representatives or fellow candidates is unacceptable and cause for dismissal from consideration. I am tired of being embarrassed. Remain professional.
I am interested in where you stand and what approach you will take towards the following subjects. Remember I don’t want to hear anything about what anyone else has done. I want to know what you will do for me.
The environment. (We are borrowing this planet from our children.)
Medical care, costs and access.
The national debt.
Responsible gun control.
National disaster plans.
Equality for all.
Those are the topics I want to hear about but feel free to address any other issues which you feel are important or relevant for my consideration.
Now let me tell you my position on some of those topics so you can address my concerns or try and explain to me why my thinking is not in the best interest of me the people.
The environment. Something has to be done to plastic, curtail it or at least take it out of the disposable way we live. Consider growth in the use of hemp products and their development. Pursue the return to glass. We should be smart enough by now to make better more efficient glass products that are recyclable. We have a country full of smart people, put them to work on that. Work on making recycling obviously beneficial by requiring anyone selling an item with a redemption value to have to accept that item back for cash or credit.
Renewable energy. Use the examples or other nations that already exist. Open our minds and learn from others. We have 2 oceans that are constantly in motion and barren lands that have plenty of sun exposure, winds that blow and rivers that flow.
Gun control. Everyone has the right to bare are for the “common” defense. Education in both handling and morality should go hand in hand. Not everyone needs a Barret Assault weapon, but they should not be denied should they satisfy stringent requirements. Each category of weapon needs to have its own requirements. Use common sense.
Unilateral partisanship. I don’t know when the 3 branches of the government decided that the way to run the country became a sporting event. It is not a game and there is no scoring kept. The branches are not teams playing against each other in order to win or keep the other from winning. You represent a nation of people. Lives are at stake. Insure domestic tranquility, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. Keep that a central focus.
Restitution for the slavery. What we did in the past was irreconcilably wrong. If we feel as a nation, we must do something make amends for that so be it. I have no problems with idea and concept of it but it must carry with it the understanding that once done it’s a non-issue. BUT, before any of that takes place there is another group that you must make amends with first and that is the Native Americans. If anyone ever got screwed our predecessors, it was them. Until that is corrected everyone else will just have to wait.
Now, here’s what I would do for a real debate. Remember you applying for this job, so I’ll be reading your resumes first and for the interview this is what I want to see. You all get to sell yourself to me. I want some really smart people who have experience on national topics that affect us as a country and based on our current situation, to pose the questions. The will all be put in a hate and randomly drawn and presented to each of you. You will not have prior knowledge of these questions. There are 3 reasons for this. First, I want to how well you know what is really going on with our country. Second, I want to see how you accept and handle the situation. Third I want to see if you are going to make up some B.S. story just to try and sell me an igloo to live in in Death Valley.
So now based on what I have explained to you what it is that I really want to know about, you have the key to my vote. If you want that the one who give me that will get it. If none of you do, then none of you will get my vote. I have the right to vote but I also have the responsibility to vote for the candidate who is going to the job and represent me responsibility and professionally as a nation. I will not cast a vote for anyone who will not or cannot do the job and be responsible. I am literally putting my life, lively hood, and everyone and everything I care about in your hands.
Now show me why I should vote for you. I am watching.
Me… the people!
