An open letter to the President Elect

An open letter:

Dear Mr. Trump,

I have my doubts about your actual motives and beliefs in running for President, how you intend to govern, and what policies you actually favor. Given your history I really don’t believe your campaign rhetoric.

But I could be wrong. I hope you prove me wrong.

Thus, I would like to remind you that your supporters did not elect you to “work with” the Democrats, to engage in “compromises” that essentially mean giving them much (if not most or all) of what they want while conservatives get nothing in return. The people who voted for you don’t want more and bigger government programs. They don’t want to use their tax dollars “more efficiently”. They elected you to get _away_ from those policies.

As you choose advisors (please no more “I listen to myself; I say great things”) I hope you choose actual conservatives and liberty-minded individuals and listen to what they say. You could do worse, much worse, than to pick up a copy of Goldwater’s “The Conscience of a Conservative”.

Oh, and while you’re at it, now that you’re the President Elect, you might want to pick up a copy of the Constitution and read it. I know, I know, you never saw value in it before, but now that you have obtained the highest office in the land, it’s kind of important to your job.

If you do your job right, you will reduce the size and scope of government.  You will reduce its power.  I know, that means you will reduce your power as well, but I’m perhaps you can see that as a small price to pay to secure your place in history as the President who set the US back on a course to liberty.

You stand at the crossroads.  You have the potential to be one of the greatest presidents in history.  You also have the potential to be yet another in a line of Presidents who led the US into serfdom.

The choice is yours.

I pray you make the right one.
