An Open Letter to

Republican candidates for President of the United States.


I have watched with some amusement and much disgust at your behavior over the past year.  Here are a couple of observations you and your campaign staffs should attend to, and quickly.

First, at one point or another, while claiming to adhere to the principles of Reagan, you have all violated his 11th Commandment.  To wit: “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”  I don’t really care what makes you different from any other Republican.  I want to know what makes you different (other than the ‘R’ after your name) from the Democrat candidates.  

Second, be specific as to what your administration will do to solve some problems.  Compare your plan to the front runners in the Democratic Party.  Be sure to include what it will cost me.  What will my share of the bill be?  Will this cost me one dollar?  or will it cost me ten thousand dollars.  There is a big difference.  Don’t say it will cost six billion dollars because the average, hard working American taxpayer can not relate to a number that large.  

As one of those hard working Americans that also happen to be a Veteran, what will you do about the scandals at the Veterans Administration?  I believe, as stated by Thoreau in Civil Disobedience, “That government is best which governs least.”  What will you do to reduce the size of government?  How will you get the government out of my and every other Americans life? What will you do to keep the nation safe?  Not just militarily, but economically and culturally.

Might I also be so bold as to suggest you all get out your copy of the Constitution of the United States (you do keep a copy handy, right?) and read it.  Read it to understand what some very intelligent men approximately 229 years ago thought about “Governments are  instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”  In other words, gentlemen, you are here to serve us, not the other way around.  You, are after all, the hired help.  We the People are tired, frustrated and ready to say “You’re FIRED!”

You Humble Scribe,
