Dear Mr. President,
As I open this correspondence on the first day of August and only a few short months before the most consequential election in our lifetimes, I am compelled to acknowledge the inherent and monumental risk that you have selflessly burdened in service to your fellow Americans and wholly to this nation. Moreover, I would be remiss not to remark on the onus that both you and your family have borne to restore this grand constitutional republic back to its sacred and hallowed form as designed by our Founding Fathers and the principle of original intent. The Founding Fathers will take on even greater meaning momentarily.
Since your candidacy and likely before it, you have endured a relentless and historically unprecedented bombardment rising to the level of collective resistance and manifesting as treason. The driving forces behind it are dark, shadowy, evil and ruthless and the light of truth has now shone upon them and to the extent that many patriotic Americans now feel what you and yours have felt for some time. I have been fortunate in all of this to have coalesced with a small team of intelligent, like-minded and fiercely patriotic individuals who remain fully supportive of one another – to the man – as we absorb the same dark and sinister forces being leveraged precisely against you and those beneath your umbrella.
It’s an odd occurrence, actually; however, it is fully explainable by contemporary history. Although many Americans are just now comprehending it, others of us have been quietly engaging with the truth by lurking in the shadowy confines of political marginalization. It is for this reason that I state that many of us now actually feel what you and yours have felt. That’s reasonably attributable to a singular fact; it being that you, Mr. President, have actually represented us and our traditional and patriotic interests as Americans. In reciprocity, we have emerged from those shadows and firmly taken our rightful position next to you. You see, Mr. President, for many of us, you have given us what none other has – real hope. That hope has had profound effects.
The sacrifices that you and your family have made for America and Americans; the magnitude of which seems to have perhaps escaped many, don’t escape us. We’re now almost four years further down the course upon which you’ve placed this great nation and we stand in the light of truth observing it reflect with great clarity. As we do, this nation’s contemporary history is drawn into scrutiny and as we examine it intently and purposefully but objectively, it stands without question that we’ve all been exploited and sacrificed by previous administrations.
Over time, these miscreants and their ilk metastasized throughout the entirety of the federal apparatus; all of the way down to state and local governance. It is your place in history germane to presidential politics and your status as a true, rogue outsider fully representative of and beholden to your constituents, that defines the moment for all times. Therein and without reservation, I suggest that it is incumbent upon each and every patriotic American to realize and acknowledge that as we we stand in this new found light of truth, we also stand upon the precipice of the Second American Revolution; a literal fight for the tradition, heart, soul and future of this grand and unique constitutional republic that always has and always must maintain its global significance and relevance as the only remaining bastion of freedom, liberty and justice.
With this exigent moment upon us, I am reminded of the words of Abraham Lincoln,
“Here then is one point at which danger may be expected. The question recurs, ‘How shall we fortify against it?’ The answer is simple. Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well-wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of the Revolution never to violate in the least particular the laws of the country, and never to tolerate their violation by others. As the patriots of ’76 did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support of the constitution and laws let every American pledge his life, his property and his sacred honor. Let every man remember that to violate the law is to trample on the blood of his father and to tear the charter of his own and his children’s liberty. Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap; let it be taught in schools, in seminaries and in colleges; let it be written in primers, in spelling-books and in almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation; and let the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay of all sexes and tongues and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars.”Abraham Lincoln
President Lincoln understood the scope and risk inherent to it all and so do we. All things have a beginning and ours came to fruition in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1776 when fifty-six men wittingly placed their signatures on the Declaration of Independence. Those men did so fully aware of the consequences they would soon face. As history dictates, some of those men met presumed fates: captured, tortured, executed, incarcerated, homes ransacked and burned, family members murdered, families taken, businesses destroyed, properties looted, possessions confiscated and rendered to impoverishment. These men were no fools and foresaw King George’s intent to locate and execute all fifty-six for treason.
As the light of truth reflects back on the enemies of this nation, we understand them to be cut from the same ruthless cloth as King George. We understand that contemporaneous stakes are as high as they were in 1776; that the outcome is as consequential and perhaps even more so. We understand that our firm and resolute position next to you bears down hard and to the extent that we, too, now inherit risk. This returns us full circle to the relevance of the Founding Fathers and this Second American Revolution; thus giving way to the words of Mr. Benjamin Rush,
“Do you recollect the pensive and awful silence which pervaded the house when we were called up, one after another, to the table of the President of Congress to subscribe what was believed by many at that time to be our own death warrants?”Benjamin Rush
It is Mr. Rush who reminds us that failing in this endeavor is not an option. It’s not an option for you, the nation or any of us for we know the face of our enemy as taught to us by history. Mr. President, please understand that many of us volunteered to be called to the table to subscribe to our own death warrants and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We have reciprocated out of honor, duty, service, and for the sake of everyone and everything we value and hold important so as to embrace the hope that you have presented us. In that vein, we commit to you and to fighting this war.
So, as we march with you in lockstep in this glorious Second American Revolution, I leave you with words from Frederick Douglass,
“I have said that the Declaration of Independence is the ring-bolt to the chain of your nation’s destiny; so, indeed, I regard it. The principles contained in that instrument are saving principles. Stand by those principles, be true to them on all occasions, in all places, against all foes, and at whatever cost.”Frederick Douglass
Mr. President, we stand by you and those principles. We are true to you and them on all occasions, in all places, against all foes and at whatever cost. Godspeed.
