Dear Mr. President,
I apologize for this letter really just being a short note to wish you well in the debate tomorrow night. The new rule of muting the mikes after the allotted time for an answer seems like a great idea. Now VP Biden can’t step all over your yelling. It’s actually a good thing for you, for him and for all the listeners who choose to tune in. I do have some more thoughts to help you in the debate, if you chose to listen to me. Yes, I know, I’m not a political advisor but I am a voter (who has already voted) and I am part of a larger group of people who would give you the same advice, so, here it goes.
1. Try and be positive. Talk about what you would like to accomplish in the next 4 years. Other positive ideas might include acknowledging that the country needs to unify over something, anything. I think we can all agree that children, ones who are already born, need a healthy home, healthy diets, clean air and water, great education, safe communities and, PARENTS. Maybe you could speak about how to reunite 545 CHILDREN with their parents. You could get extra credit for your answers if you can explain how this happened. Remember, answers need to be in complete sentences. Points will be deducted for inappropriate language, lies and yelling.
2. Try and be respectful of EVERYONE! There is no need to call people names, accuse them of being criminals or being anti-American. For Pete’s sake, who would run for public office without caring about our Public! Did you think VP Biden is only trying to get rich, or avoid prosecution? Conspiracy theories or stories that have already been disproven will also deduct points from the final score. Many more points will be deducted for dissing Dr. Fauci.
3. The public would like to have some straight answers for the inevitable question on the current state of your virus. Both you and VP Biden will be asked on what the national plan is and how and why your plan is better, meaning, how will it lower the infection and death rates, as well as protect our overwhelmed health systems. Extra points will be given for facts, statistics and not speaking about what you did 8 months ago, and not mentioning the word, “ventilators”. Points can be deducted for accusing governors of not accepting your “plans” or threatening them with cutting off Federal funds that go towards battling the virus and providing other health care funds.
4. When you are asked about the economy simply explain of how we go forward with supporting small businesses and building real infrastructures like roads, bridges, homes, schools, hospitals, and other jobs of the future. Don’t waste your two minutes on what happened during the last three years. Extra points may be given for discussing how new green businesses will be part of the economic plan, but points may be deducted for trying to return to coal as a major industry.
That’s it for now, I don’t want to make too many suggestions but let’s talk again after the debate.
