A Petition to President Trump
Dear President Trump,
In your inaugural address you stated that “…today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.”
We thank you President Trump and answer that claim with a promise to you. If you honor the will of The People, seize this opportunity and make a deal with the people, you will be the most popular and greatest President since George Washington. It’s a really, really, good deal.
You went on to say, “For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.”
We, the people, commend you for that honesty. And again we offer you a deal. Help us to drain the swamp as you promised during the campaign. Help us achieve victory and celebrate in triumph as we overthrow the establishment and you will be celebrated in greater fashion than ever before. It will be huge.
You went on to say, “And this, the United States of America, is your country” and “What truly matter is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people”.
We concur, Mr. President. And We, The People do hereby exercise our Constitutional First Amendment Rights and now address our government with our grievance that We, The People, no longer control our government because the levers of power have been captured in a subtle slow motion coup de ta and do request your assistance in the redress of this grievance and in our efforts for the restoration of a government of, by and for The People.
We The People are not that stupid, Mr. President. We understand how rich people and rich big businesses fund campaigns and basically control the politicians at both the state and federal levels that are supposed to represent us. That’s not fair and it’s bad. We pay for their healthcare and pay their salaries and they just work for the industries that fund their campaigns. That’s not good. It’s bad, very, very, bad. And the vast majority of us are angry about it. We’re really, really mad.
So we drafted a plan, The People’s Plan to Renew America, and are sharing that plan with each other, gathering signatures, organizing and are marshaling the will of The People as you read this. So here’s the deal…
Support The People’s Plan to Renew America and we will honor you as the greatest President since George Washington. You will not only become an American hero of epic proportions, but will be revered throughout the world and the Trump brand will be more valuable than you ever could have imagined. If you fail to support The People’s Plan you will be considered an enemy of The People and democracy thereby ensuring your place in history will live in infamy.
