Dear Future President-Elect Romney,
I am writing to voice the concerns of many good Americans today. You have some monumentally important choices coming up. The first of which is the decision on your Vice President, followed by further campaign direction, debate preparation and strategy. Please listen to the American people for time is running out. I am hoping you learned something from John McCain’s abortion of a presidential run and will instead be a bold candidate who will actually make a stand. Our country is currently under attack by an anti-American Chicago thug who slithered into office under the premise of hope and change. Though he swore to uphold our laws and Constitution, the last three years of obamanation have been horrific for most of us as our Constitution has been trampled or ignored. Czars, tax-cheats, union goons, and other extreme leftists have been appointed to positions of power. Free enterprise and capitalism have been denigrated and maligned, causing astronomical misery for the working and unemployed alike. obama has bailed out unions and supporters while real workers suffer. We now have fewer individuals entering the workforce than those beginning to suckle on the teat of government welfare and disability programs. Our religion is under pressure from the White House and far-left cronies that spit on the Christian foundations established by the Founders. Our national sovereignty is eroded by our supposed Commander-in-Chief as he has reduced our weapon stockpiles drastically, all the while bowing (literally and figuratively) to leaders of foreign lands. This man whom you hope to replace (and better if the American dream is to survive) may as well have put a bullet in Border Patrol Brian Terry himself as he now covers up his administration’s crimes. Related to this, our nation’s borders are nothing but lines on a map as border guard numbers are reduced and illegal aliens are allowed to invade our cities. These illegals even include multiple relatives of obama himself. Your opponent was raised by Communists and has no understanding of the American Dream, our nation’s exceptional history or even basic economics. Indoctrinated into the teachings of Saul Alinski, he feels we have grown too big and must be cut down to size. At every step, he undercuts our foundations in order to destroy our country and rebuild as a socialist utopia. Obamacare was just the beginning. Our great land has an exponentially growing debt, ballooning more under this President than under the rest combined and it is an intentional effort to overburden the system based on the radical plans of the 1960s (read about the intentions of the founders of ACORN). While this man pushes progressivism, socialized medicine, abortions, and spreads our wealth, we cry out for leadership; not a smile and a handshake. You must be bold, Mr. Romney.
obama, unable to run on his own record (at least publically….assuredly he brags about his accomplishments behind closed doors), simply assails you and other wealthy Americans. Mr. Romney, you must STAND UP and be proud of your accomplishments. Though you would not believe it by listening to the left-leaning media, most Americans aspire to be successful and wealthy. The top earners pay the most taxes and hire the rest of us. We do not hate those of your ilk. We despise the jealous Occupy zombies while they whine, collect their 99 weeks of unemployment and pray for the downfall of our way of life. You must champion us, capitalism, business and all that our country has done to lead the world from darkness to bounty and light in the last 200+ years. We, as free Americans with the Conservative direction of our Founding Fathers, drove that. Liberal methods of governing have failed in every single burgh, city, town, state and country in which they have been attempted. State this fact. Champion us but do not coddle us or favor one over another. Individuals fail. Businesses fail. None are too big. You must be our standard bearer, for another four years of indoctrination in government dependency may be too much to overcome. We all want to be successful and wealthy. Most of us work to achieve success while the perverse underbelly of society simply wishes to sponge and mooch and live in jealously. Make this stop, Mr. Romney.
You must also push back against the unions perverting our economy. While their groups held some worth many years ago, they are now nothing more than blackmail organizations that provide a slush fund for Democrat causes. You must crush them and return control of industry to the people that DID, Mr. President, BUILD THEIR BUSINESS THEMSELVES. The Left complains about corporations donating money to elections while their unions rape workers by forcing them to pay dues that are then funneled to left-leaning causes. Follow the path mapped by Governor Scott Walker and stop these villains, Mr. Romney.
You are a business man and must act as, in addition to Commander-in-Chief, CFO of America. You must not squander the opportunity, as Bush did, to promote positive change in Washington. Eliminate the Departments of Energy and Education. They are useless examples of a bloated bureaucracy and every second they steal our tax dollars to have talentless employees shuffle papers. They have failed in their mission and must be eliminated. Also, you must streamline the tax code and make it far simpler to actually conduct business. Reduce the corporate tax rate to 10% or less and all of those jobs that American companies moved overseas will return, along with billions in foreign investment. If you make these bold but business-friendly changes, industry will flock to our shores as the socialists running other lands squeeze them out. As Reagan always understood, government inhibits success so eliminate as much as possible and we can avert this coming disaster!
You must also secure our borders and make those from foreign lands assimilate, not have the government kowtow to every whim and custom these people bring with them. They must come here legally, speak English, pay taxes, participate in American society or go home. All good Americans know this and are crying out for a leader with the testicular fortitude to say it. We do NOT want to “Press 1” for English any longer. Do not allow people to come here, demand (Sharia) laws of their old lands, and segregate themselves into little groups. Mr. Romney, as the immigrants from our first 150 years knew, they must become Americans, not simply come and live in America.
On a more pressing issue, your Vice Presidential pick is coming up and is vastly important. This is not the time to partner with a boring Pawlenty or Portman and certainly a Bush-era Condi Rice (pro-abortion and not that great in the international realm frankly) pick would be terrible. Excite the base and all Americans with a choice the ilk of Rubio, Ryan, Jindal or DeMint. If you are playing the “pick a VP from a must-win state”, at least make it Governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia. Once the VP pick and convention are behind you, you could restoke the fires by announcing your cabinet choices. This would be another brilliant move to rouse the base. The names positively mentioned above, if not Vice President, could fill other roles. Additionally, Gingrich, Santorum and Perry could clean up other festering areas of government. John Bolton could either be Secretary of State or return to the U.N. for our inherent American liberties are under constant attack by those pushing for international government. The most staggering, brilliant, ironic, fantastic move could then be announcing Ron Paul as head of the Federal Reserve. You would immediately get the support of many Libertarians and independents while striking fear into the heart of the corrupt Fed system. Please make a stand and do not play politics. Americans are tired of corrupt cabinet officials, czars (you MUST eliminate all of those on Day One) and perversions of government. Please hear the call of the people.
As the campaign and debates unfold, I must once again implore you to be BOLD, Mr. Romney. Handling President obama with kid-gloves as you have thus far is not the way. Do not muckrake but TELL THE TRUTH. He was raised by radicals and Communists, schooled overseas, found religion in a racist church and has recently been proven to have joined the Communist Party in Chicago in earlier days. He refuses to disclose any information about his formative years and those details in his books have proven to be lies. He taught socialism as a lecturer, worked for and was a staunch supporter of the radical ACORN organization, and even fought to have babies that survived abortions be treated as trash and die. For his limited time in public service, he was independently determined to be the most liberal during his (brief) time in the U.S. Senate. Have the nerve to say these truths. Did you not learn from the gutless political methodology of Senator John McCain four years ago? While I will always respect his service to our country, it appears McCain lost his spine in the war. Politicians like him, Lindsey Graham and others that bend over backwards to not offend and get along are useless when the stakes are this high. A vast number of Americans, gaining news from Facebook or shows on Comedy Central, are not engaged in the political process and have been brainwashed into believing obama is a nice guy, doing a good job, supporting American principles, wants the country to succeed and has a transparent presidency. Only those of us that pay attention know the truth. You, Mr. Romney, have to spread the word. You have to be our voice. You have to come to the Right. Our Country, the vision of the Founders, the very well-being of the entire world, rests on your shoulders. If you fail, you fail us all. This is one of the most important U.S. elections in our history and will decide if we are still the shining city on a hill or a socialist dung pile like most of Europe.
Until now, too many of us have been content to stay on the sideline but it has become obvious that we will not survive as a great nation under the crushing heel of this vile individual another four years. In the hope for another Ronald Reagan, many of us have been slow in supporting you due to imagined and legitimate concerns. Your liberal roots sometimes show but let this serve as a warning. You may as well join us on the Right as a revolution is afoot. If you cling to some of your leftist views of the past and do not come willingly, we will drag you to our side. It is the only thing that will save the Union. Questions surrounding your religion have to be put behind us all for the good of our country and I, for one, have moved on. When faced with the choice between a Mormon with many of our similarly held principles and a man that sat in a vile, racist “church” for over 20 years listening to black separatist dogma and who feels the Muslim call to prayer is one of the most beautiful sounds on Earth, the decision is easy. Regardless of our personal religious beliefs, there is no contest and we must stand with you. If you will be the bold leader we need, we pledge to you our support and trust. We are electing a man to lead us on the path of economic recovery, reestablish our safe borders and promote American exceptionalism. You are now our standard-bearer and the last hope of a battered populace. Stand, Mr. Romney. Be bold.

As the sixth-great grandson of American patriot and Revolutionary War hero Christopher Gadsden, I feel it is my duty to speak fondly of America’s greatness and stand ready to defend her against all adversaries. Sadly, I must rail against the vileness and evil of the leftists, progressives, Marxist, socialists and idiots in general now threatening to destroy our great nation. If you support this aim, please spread the word.
