Dear President-Elect Trump,

We American citizens-a hopeful 62 million plus majority– extend our most heartfelt congratulations on your historic victory.

Your confident resolve throughout the prolonged and contentious campaign which led to your memorable triumph is surely a lesson in fortitude that all American citizens, and true believers of Democracy, can learn from and celebrate. Of course every American is in complete agreement that now, more than ever, our divided, divisive nation requires a determined, confident, compassionate leader who will ably reforge our fractured union and then steadfastly pave a reliable road to an American tomorrow that might be even greater for all than our American yesterday was for so many.

In short, President-Elect Trump, we need a proud Champion of our freedoms who will be wise enough to realign our diverse multitudes into one unified direction and strong enough to lift all of us into that direction of prosperity and peace as a true United States of America. The world is watching and so we must all match your example of firm resolve with our own unwavering faith that you can and will be that greatest of American Champions as we must pledge to extend you all the committed, loyal support that is and has always been due your esteemed Office, and that you will undoubtedly require.

We hold this ideal close to our hearts. 

Yet this ideal of ours must not be based on the partisan politics that have done nothing so much as drag our once robust nation down into a morass of childish political gamesmanship resulting in a dysfunctional government that serves no one but themselves, the deep pockets of their own special interests and the debilitating virus of parasitic DC lobbyists that plague our great nation’s capitol.                                                    

During your campaign President-Elect Trump, you urgently promised the American people you would- “drain the swamp…”

Along these lines the clarion call for campaign finance reform has been sounded for years and it is one plea that must not go unheeded, nor ignored any longer by the tone deaf ears of jaded career politicians. The days of the Washington insider’s one-way reliance on gullible votes from neglected constituents are over and your victory assures us of that fact. Your decisive Executive action here, President-Elect Trump, may go a long way towards restoring the faith of an impatient American people and breaking the inertia of congressional politics as usual.

As you begin this Herculean task please do not fear to judiciously employ the guidelines of our Founders- limited government aligned with individual responsibility at the service of freedom of enterprise.

We eagerly await the forceful application of your considerable energies, along with your administrative acumen, in molding this political mud into the concrete form of durable legislative bricks upon which we can build a fortress of freedom as a shining example the entire free world can turn to with hopeful reassurance.

As a transformative leader who has himself spent a lifetime building, President-Elect Trump, we have every faith that you are the Man for this job. And this is the job that the most common American so desperately relies on you to tackle.

Because, President-Elect Trump, we are not American corporations, we are American communities. 

We are not the privileged class, we are the middle class, we are the working class, we are the class that struggles and pays our taxes so that our families might someday get their chance to live their own humble American dream in their near future. And much like yourself, President-Elect Trump, our deepest most passionate desire is to give our children and our families every opportunity at American economic prosperity that we have enjoyed, and every opportunity that we have not.

The art of the deal has been your business touchstone and now we look to you to create the robust type of new deal for Americans that will benefit all of us from top to bottom and bottom to top. A brand new deal that former President FDR would be proud to enact, and a new deal that will endure, will sustain us and will rebuild the infrastructure of our nation.

Just as every Executive-in-Chief before you, doubtless you will require a sharp team of wise and compassionate advisers to assist you as you forge confidently ahead constructing this secure American future for all. Certain names have already been touted for key cabinet positions and, while we have every confidence in your decisions, we do passionately urge you to consider assembling a cabinet team that truly understands the considerable yet diverse challenges faced by all American people, as well as an empathetic team that is dedicated to representing all of us today and moving forward.

We want to be as proud of them as we will be of you President-Elect Trump, and we hope in our own small way to consider ourselves a part of your most successful team yet.

To that end, for so many of us President-Elect Trump, Senator Sanders is exactly the brand of wise, experienced, progressive mover and innovative shaker that might be of limitless benefit to your White House cabinet as well as to the success of American people everywhere. We are sure Senator Sanders is ready, willing and very able to serve this success.

Of course any idea of success must begin with good health and good health is entirely dependent on reliable healthcare for all. This is no pie-in-the-sky dream as you are well aware, and almost every industrialized nation on Earth has capably managed this most humanitarian of federal services. Thankfully our national shame ended when the previous administration established a foothold that tens of millions of American families right now gratefully rely on for their only invaluable healthcare.

It is now up to you President-Elect Trump to see that universal healthcare for all Americans becomes an even more efficient reality, as well as another Trump legacy for our children to look up to and admire with grateful pride and dignity.

It goes without saying that every American man, woman and child desires to live their lives with quiet pride and some measure of reliable dignity and in order to do so we must all depend on the surety, sanctity and integrity of the Law. During your campaign you emphatically expressed your great respect and confident belief in our sacred Rule of Law and its brave guardians. These are the reasons that your appointment of Attorney General is such a crucial decision for all of us.

As you are well aware, President-Elect Trump, in our great nation historically the Law has not always been applied with the same evenhanded righteousness which so many of us might hope for or even expect. Our most recent history informs us that, sadly in far too many cases, our system of Justice for All continues to struggle with its own virtuous ideals. Therefore, this vital appointment will send a clear signal that we are on the correct, impartial path to a truly equal Justice System that maintains liberty for all and delivers swift justice to those who would choose to threaten it.

Of course no nomination to the Halls of Justice is more vital or more far-reaching than your choice for SCOTUS.

Within your first 100 days you have promised to nominate our next Supreme Court Justice, a nomination that will affect future generations of Americans far beyond both your Presidency and our own brief time in this world. Given the gravity of this surely history-making appointment, we ask only that you exercise that exact same independent spirit bereft of partisanship which so unerringly guided you throughout your campaign when you make this fateful decision.

We trust that you will do so.

Luckily for all American citizens, there is no shortage of experienced, wise, respectful, compassionate and far-sighted legal eagles to fill this historic seat but Judge Merrick Garland had the trust and approval of the previous administration and he has the trust of Senator Sanders.

Yet what is justice if we allow barbarians to storm our gates with senseless destruction and raging violence while decent, hard working Americans of every creed, color and origin spend their own lives toiling to faithfully, selflessly build our nation’s future for all?        

You alone have properly named this nation’s- and this world’s– enemies of freedom and equality President-Elect Trump, and you have unwaveringly identified their poisonous brand of stupidity, hatred and violence. We have every trust that as Commander-in-Chief, you will bring the brightest light of Truth and the swiftest Justice to this darkest, ugliest corner of our world.

The whole world will need your strong hand and fearless guidance as well, President-Elect Trump, when it comes to more efficiently lighting our way forward towards a safer, cleaner, healthier environment.

Our planet is currently in climate crisis and this is an ecological deficit we can no longer afford to ignore or blithely burden the following generations with as we selfishly wreak our thoughtless havoc with little regard for our current responsibilities. Therefore we Americans who have always been at the forefront of creating innovative technology must once again rise to the occasion of both preserving and nurturing our most precious resources for the generations to come.

A great American President once issued a challenge that we would land an American man on the moon and then safely return him home. An inspired nation and the entire world eagerly watched in awe then celebrated with joy as that President’s proclamation became our reality. Our technological challenge is now different although no less daunting, and it is our own green Earth which we must now explore for innovative solutions then safely return as we pass it along for future generations to live and thrive on without threat of privation.

The addictive fossil fuel stopgaps of our polluted past will not take us there. We know, President-Elect Trump, that you can be the next great American President that challenges us to engage in the type of bold scientific innovation that will explore all alternatives and produce the new brand of energy that will launch us into a much more sustainable future for our children, and their children.  

We are with you President-Elect Trump. We are blessed and remain ever grateful that despite our diverse multitude of backgrounds, we have the privilege and honor of being citizens of this great, ever-hopeful nation.

Lead all of us forward.                                                                                                                      

 We are with you.

May God bless you and bless the United States of America.
