Open Letter: Dear Mrs. Clinton

0

I am writing you today because it would be great to have a woman as President of the United States in the White House. It simply cannot be you. The office of President certainly does not need a perfect person because no such person exists; however, that office does carry aspects of character and integrity that you do not possess. While you may feel you have the country’s best interests at heart, your past and present performance does not dictate that.

A President should not have a history of lies, half-truths, pandering and selling out to the highest bidder. Harsh words, I know, but I call it as it is. Here is an exercise for you to consider.

In all your drama, look at the common denominator. In all the scandals in your political and private life, you are center to these and always claim being unaware or victim, therefore you claim a pass. A President should be able to own errors and not be unaware or a victim. A President should not come across as the shrill person in the grocery checkout line arguing with a cashier about a non-issue.

While it is completely acceptable to have a President who is a female, of color, gay or any other profile, what you seem to not grasp is no one should ever be hired for a position on the basis of any of these things. We are Americans and that’s it. To hire you just because you are woman is not a valid reason to hire you. You would have to be the best candidate for the job.

I am surprised you have as many people backing you as you do. The problems we have as a country cannot be fixed with one who is politically entrenched. You madam, are as entrenched as one can be in politics. One could argue that is a good thing, because you can work with people and know Washington DC. The issue with that is you have been part of the mechanism that created our current problems.

I do not dislike you personally, as I have never met you, but your record is flawed. Claiming ignorance is not an excuse. Have you ever heard that ignorance of the law is no excuse? The American public has. I ask then, why is it okay for you to get a pass by claimed ignorance? It is not okay. That is the correct answer.

I suspect you will not do the honorable thing and own your mistakes in judgement, neither will you be honorable and end your Presidential campaign. It is sad really because that office needs a leader. You madam are a leader, but the flawed kind that is insufferable to work for.

Before you take this as a partisan rant, consider that I have chosen my view on whom I back because they are blunt and direct, even brutally honest. They do not pander. They have not lied to the country. They also have no history in politics. Be honest, own your flaws and earn some real respect, not the insulated praise of you because you are a very entrenched politician. You do realize your staff will lie and tell you how great you are. It is fear. They fear you Mrs. Clinton. It is the Yes man complex.

The tired dog and pony show of manipulation of media coverage is not as effective as it was and blasting social media with half-truths and rhetoric is being seen for what it is.

Be honorable. Accept your consequences for your crimes. Your candidacy is a blight on the process as you have violated laws.

Nixon erased recordings. You deleted emails. Nixon resigned the office of President. Somehow your supporters can give you a pass? Have we really gone so down the ethical ladder as a country that you can get that pass?

As to Benghazi, I read a post online by a supporter of yours. They said that was just four people who died behind enemy lines. That is quite the break from the truth and is telling as to how misinformed or possibly sociopathic your supports can be.

Do the right thing.

Sincerely,
America

PS. This guy is for America. He loves our country.
