Essential American Wisdom

Letter To President Trump

Dear Mr. President:

I fervently pray that this letter finds you well and that the safety and security of your family and loved ones are intact. I am writing you this letter today to share my concerns about our fragile Republic’s current state, humbly offer several suggestions for your consideration, and commit my unconditional support for your candidacy to become the 47th President of the United States.

I am a simple man; I am neither rich nor famous, I come from a long line of simple and proud Appalachians whose first ancestors have been here since 1750, and I was raised in a Christian family that has long held to the fundamental principles on which this country was founded-life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Like so many others in this country, my family has bled on foreign and domestic soil to uphold and defend these principles from the day the Constitution became law. As a nation, our institutions and elected representatives are disregarding these principles, and from where I sit in this country, the abandonment of these principles has brought us back to the point we found ourselves in 1776, right before we turned against the king and his Parliament and went our separate way. I have written two books on these issues (that few people have seen), and I’m as sure as I can be that we are in the same moment today, as our own people are split in half between standing with tyranny or standing up against it, as we were all those centuries ago.

Our Founding Fathers stood on the shoulders of the people that built this country from the ground up. They understood the needs and aspirations of these first Generations, organized what would become America to meet and sustain those aspirations, and established the only nation in history ever built of, by, and for the people. My suggestion to you, coming from only one of tens of Millions of people, is that -with everything you will be tasked to do when you are re-elected- you remind yourself in all things that this country does not belong to you, or any of the three branches, or any of the special interests and NGOs or foreign investors, it belongs to all of us that built and maintain it and the power needs to be given back to us accordingly.

Not since Ronald Reagan has a president felt that way about this country, but I think you do. I offer every penny I have and every free moment available to me to support your return to the presidency on the promise you’re going to give back power to those from whom your predecessors have taken it.

Your greatest enemies are all around you, but so are your greatest allies; most of us don’t care about mean tweets or harsh words, but we care about our daily lives, our families, and our country’s future. In everything you must do to win back America, I pray you will do it with humility, grace, kindness, compassion, and steadfast ferocity, unwilling to give an inch to those trying to destroy our nation and our lives. May God be with you and bless the United States of America.

Sincerely, David M. Poff
