A Sample Constituent's Letter to His GOP Representative Who Has Endorsed Trump

I recently wrote a version of the letter below to my representative — who happens to be the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan — upon his endorsement of Donald Trump for President of the United States. Perhaps if enough of us write letters such as the one below to our representatives, Mr. Trump will enact the following policies.

* * *

Dear Representative/Senator/Governor,

Good day! I have been glad to vote for you on my ballot, and am pleased with your overall work my representative. I appreciate your conservative and pro-life principles, your care for the Constitution, and the positive way you sought to convey them.

I noticed with some dismay that you have endorsed Donald Trump for president. While I understand that he did win (with far less than 50% of the vote in most states) the Republican primary, surely asking him to do the following before endorsing him is reasonable:

1.) Unequivocally renounce the murder of innocent civilians who happen to have relatives that are bad people.

2.) Unequivocally renounce torture.

3.) Unequivocally make it clear that he will not be an Imperial President but will perform the acts of an executive instead of legislating like Obama has done and like Trump has stated on various occasions that he would do as well, but more.

4.) Unequivocally renounce his wealth tax policy as not just an idea that is not good for right now but as a terrible idea, so that he is no longer on the record in favor of communism-lite and a policy that is to the left of Bernie Sanders.

5.) Get a very conservative vice president and surround himself with competent people so that he does not sound like an ignorant buffoon whenever one scratches below “Build the wall, rah!”

6.) Release his tax returns so that we find out whether he stopped contributing to Planned Parenthood and who knows what else in 2016, 2015, 2014, etc. At this point, as far as we know, Trump could have contributed to the American wing of the Muslim brotherhood. He is not releasing his tax returns because he has a lot to hide in them.

7.) Tell lies less often than Hillary Clinton instead of more often.

8.) Renounce crackpot conspiracy theories about Bush, etc. that even Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton do not support.

9.) Stop saying on the one hand that he is very noninterventionist in his foreign-policy, so much so that he would drop NATO which would essentially allow Eastern Europe to return underneath the Iron Curtain, while on the other hand saying that he would invade Middle East nations to take over their oil fields while refusing to rule out dropping a nuclear bomb on European allies.

I do not think that the above list is too much to ask for someone who will decide whether or not we will enter a nuclear war. For the sake of the possibility that Trump might appoint someone who is not a tyrant to the Supreme Court, I would be willing to live with his horrible anti-free-trade policies that would shrink the economy more than Bernie Sanders’s proposals, but I would need to see change on the positions above.

I am disappointed that you have endorsed a candidate for President who endorses torture and the murder of innocent civilians. This is the opposite of the liberty-loving, pro-life, pro-Constitution representative that I have come to expect.


P. S.: If I could get a written response, I would appreciate it. Thank you.
