A letter I sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
Dear Madame Secretary
It’s been awhile since I’ve emailed any official, as I have grown intolerant of their refusal to listen. With the state of the economy in shambles, I started to wonder what condition this great country would be in currently had you been named the next President of the United States. I find myself looking on youtube at the Democratic debates and thinking to myself, “This candidate was the right choice for this country.”
To have received more votes than any other previous Democratic candidate in history, and yet still be denied the nomination, is not right. I believe that you were not only treated unfairly by the media, but by your own party, as they urged you to drop out of the race after the voters in Iowa had their say. I must admit that you are a real inspiration, and I commend you for working tirelessly for Americans and their wellbeing. You had better plans for this country, and you had a record with working with Republicans to get things done. Surely, you have to be wondering what condition this country would be in had an experienced person won the presidency.
I will be frank. I don’t like the way things have been going as of late. The President promised transparency, yet there are constant closed door meetings. He promised to end the war in Iraq, yet we still have committed Americans fighting for our freedom. He wishes to grant Constitutional rights to terrorists who are determined to destroy this country. During a time of war, these rights should not be granted to those who wish to do us harm. I know you would be a better President, and that is why I’m urging you to run in 2012.
I understand that you love your party, and will do anything for democrats, but what’s more important is your dedication to the American people. I honestly believe that the only reason Pelosi and Reid supported Obama, was to ensure that they would have more say on what happens in this country than the President. They understood that they wouldn’t be able to boss around a Clinton, and for some reason, they refused to look to experience, but rather looked at vulnerability. I commend you for the job that you have done as Secretary of State. You are doing a wonderful job, and if you decided to run in 2012, your record will be complete. You spoke of the dangers of hiring a candidate that didn’t have experience, and surely Americans are witnessing the mistake they made voting for him.
With the debt continuing to rise, and more Americans losing their jobs, Americans are asking themselves many interesting questions. What happened to hope and change? Wasn’t it supposed to be different? It seemed as though the past election came down to idealists and realists. Idealists wanted things to change greatly, that in desperation they believed the first charismatic person to tell them it would happen. If the economy doesn’t get any better in a couple of years, I know that Obama will be a one term President. Will you run against him? I surely hope you do, because if America has learned anything in a year, it’s that rhetoric can’t change anything, actions speak louder than words.
I will continue to support you if you decide to run again in 2012, but please realize that the Democratic and Republican Party are both to blame. We are suffering because of an inexperienced man that continues to apologize for America, when he should be making sure that this country is kept safe. This country means too much to Americans to watch it get any worse. I encourage you to run for the sake of this country, and that will be the change we can truly believe in.
