Letter: Finding common ground
When having a conversation with someone about a subject which may be controversial, it is probably wise to look for common ground on which you may agree.
Now to the purpose of this letter.
I would be willing to acknowledge that most people recognize our country is in trouble, and it is useless to point fingers, and use disagreeable partisan rhetoric.
What is or should be foremost in all of our minds is to choose the most qualified candidate to represent us in this next election.
It is time for us as the electorate to stop expecting perfection from our candidates.
We must choose a person with the intelligence, experience, wisdom, and courage to bring this county back from the edge of the cliff, and get our economic house in order.
The person we should be looking at is someone who has been around the scene long enough to have a history of accomplishments. Someone who is well-versed in history, political protocol, foreign affairs, and has a strong economic background.
Someone who will lead our elected representatives to make decisions based upon what is best for the country, rather than what political party they belong to.
I ask everyone who reads this letter to look closely at all of the candidates seeking to be president, including our current one, and ask themselves a few simple questions:
Will he or she make the image of this country stronger and more respected throughout the world?
Will the outlaw leaders of rogue countries, stop messing around with us?
Can the candidate lead the path to economic growth?
We are blessed in this country to be able to choose our leaders.
We should do everything within our power to make good choices.
