Advice to Mitt
I’ve been in your camp for some time now, going back to the last election. When you were out of that race I had no choice but to hold my nose and vote for McCain, the self-admitted Progressive or Obama-Lite. He’d have gotten us where we are now headed, only at a slower pace.
I think you’re getting a bad rap being called a RINO. My sense is that you are a Conservative at heart. Your Dad’s life story and family background, your work background, your family values all tell me that at the core you have Conservative values. Just come out and say it. Promise the American people that if elected you will exercise a Conservative agenda and then keep your promise. Just say it and say it often. Speak from your heart and we’ll know you are speaking the truth.
You are in a singular position to be the leader who can save this precious republic for which so many have suffered and died. If you live up to your promise and your capabilities as a leader there is no doubt that you will be in the honorable company of our best presidents, Washington, Lincoln and Reagan. Imagine being in the pantheon of great president for the entire history of this country. That’s something that should motivate you to move the mountains and obstructions that will be in your way. If you are successful in stemming the slow undoing of the principles and values upon which this country was built your reward will be the undying respect of a grateful people. Like a giant super liner it will take years to change course but over a long distance a one degree change of course can take a ship to a totally different destination.
When you are elected, I predict, just on the strength of your election, the economy will take off like a rocket. Entrepreneurs waiting on the sidelines will rejuvenate the economy. Unemployment will be lowered. It will be the “Romney Effect”. Doubt and worry will disappear and be replaced with the certainty that a steady hand is once again at the helm of the ship of state. If the people give you the Senate and the House you will be empowered to do the things that need to be done. Like pulling off a bandage, do it quickly, feel the pain and get past it. Smaller government, less regulations and red tape, lower personal and corporate tax rates, a simplified tax structure, debt reduction (trillions not billions), new plans to either repair or replace Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security with viable plans, fiscal sanity, end Obamacare, seal the borders and really do something about energy independence rather than just talk about it. . And most importantly, job number one should be restoring the Constitution to its rightful place in our society as the immutable contract that we the people have with the government.
It will be a really challenging job that will need a really great and dedicated leader. I’m convinced you are that leader and now is your time, get out there and convince the rest of us, yet unconvinced, that you are the right person at the right time.
