Dear President Trump,
I’ll be honest, I never thought I would have to say those words. I thought you were a joke, a foil working to get Hillary elected. After the nomination, I was #NeverTrump. I took up the mantle that you weren’t my problem, I had done my part to vote for someone else. If the Republicans wanted you, so be it. When November came, I cast my ballot for Gary Johnson and resigned myself to watching Hillary win that night.
But then she didn't win. You did.
The meltdown from the left was one of the sweetest things to watch in years. (The meltdown from the right, not so much.) And now, the eight-year long nightmare that was the Obama Administration has come to a close, and you are about to assume the role.
So I write this letter today to ask you for one big favor: don’t screw this up.
Mr. President, you ran on a platform of making America great again. Perhaps you can do just that. But the biggest thing that makes America great is freedom and liberty.
The problem is you are not someone who has shown any traditional conservative principles. You have instead shown authoritarian tendencies. You know how to abuse your position and have shown little regard in respecting the responsibility that power comes with. You have even exercised your power in petty revenge over slights--you may be pettier than even former President Obama was. (Former President Obama, how that word former warms my heart.)
I did not vote for you, Mr. President. I did not choose you, nor want you. But I have you. So please be my President. You have a lot of people hoping and praying that you don’t screw this country up. We hope you allow conservative principles and the guiding lights of freedom and liberty to bring us out of the mess Obama left in his wake.
You have a large hill to climb to prove yourself to me. But I want you to be able to do that. I don’t want you to fail in the mission of making America great again. I’m just afraid we have different ideas as to what that means.
So once more, I ask of you only one favor: don’t screw this up.
P.S. If you need a Secretary of Gaming, let me know.
