#News: #Letter to #Donald J. #Trump

  Dear Mr. Trump,

I am a nihilist, a progressively utilitarian type. Have been laughed at, thrown out of debates and denied city hall meetings in New York and a couple of other American cities because people are afraid to slide up on the bench, create space, readjust to accommodate the new, as part of a set of challenges facing us.

For now, I am of the opinion that everybody in America is guilty of being conservatively minded and should be indicted for being reservedly biased rather than the guilt of being.  
Now best way to help American public out of this indictment is to rewrite the meaning of the word “conservative” and what it means to be one – a conservative and a keeper of heritage by applying two simple but self checking modalities to “conservative reasoning.” 

The self checking modalities will be: is it necessary? or is it possible?  

As a type of methodology, these modalities will ignore paradigms like true, false, good, bad, yes, no, right, wrong and even maybe. Kind of addressing substantive qualities by switching adjectives for noun. Being a conservative translates as using your knowledge of the past to address the present and still have some kind of preparedness for the future. And guess what! You don’t have to be a nihilist like me. 

A lot of people claimed to be conservative, fact is they are just nutmegging the “C” word insouciantly. They have failed to note that being a conservative require knowledge and from that knowledge comes style. How you apply it to your “province” or your “immediacy” and still keep tradition going without falling victim to “fashionable interests” is what makes you a true conservative.

Best conservatives are erudite and very well versed in their crafts. My favorite mentor was Auntie Maggie “Margaret Thatcher” She personally started me off (as a kid) with talks on flexibility, consent, the public and the nature of believe. Thomas Moore’s Utopia, and the five Oxford Martyrs were her best English examples for me then. And her boogie warning about them is: “do not follow their stupidity by being rigid and inflexible.”  

“The law and the history of a land nullify the nature of any religious belief. If in doubt, think of what Paul the Apostle said in his eleventh book to the Philippians, chapter 3, verses 13 to 14. Consent is needed for managing human affairs. It might be hard to make a fool of yourself, when most Comedians aren’t doing so, but how you stand your ground and how you make you case is what makes the cut.”

Reality is, people are unwilling to adjust or notice you unless you apply the absurd and become a “borderline abuser”. This is the sum of what candidate Donald J. Trump is doing. Anyway if you decide to join me as an Independent candidate, I’ll welcome you and help give you a far better shot at the Presidency – with a far better stance on immigration reform, economy, tax, defense, job creation, healthcare and border security.
All without having to be a nihilist like me.

Meanwhile, as I lead my own progressively independent party towards the 2016 Presidential race, I’ll leave you with a few quotes from Sir Thomas Moore’s Utopia. You’ll see, Mr. Trump, how he addressed some if not all issues facing us today. 

– Education
“One of the greatest problems of our time is that many are schooled but few are educated.” 

― Thomas More, Selected Writings

– Justice system, Pre-K education
“if you suffer your people to be ill-educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this but that you first make thieves and then punish them?” 

― Thomas More, Utopia

– Capital punishment
“I must say, extreme justice is an extreme injury: for we ought not to approve of those terrible laws that make the smallest offences capital, nor of that opinion of the Stoics that makes all crimes equal;” 

― Thomas More, Utopia

– Minimum wage, Tax, State and Local power or Big government participation.
“As God loves me, when I consider this, then every modern society seems to me to be nothing but a conspiracy of the rich, who while protesting their interest in the common good pursue their own interests and stop at no trick and deception to secure their ill-gotten possessions, to pay as little as possible for the labor that produces their wealth and so force its makers to accept the nearest thing to nothing. They contrive rules for securing and assuring these tidy profits for the rich in the name of the common good, including of course the poor, and call them laws!” 

― Thomas More, Utopia

– Prison reform, Immigration reform
“Instead of inflicting these horrible punishments, it would be far more to the point to provide everyone with some means of livelihood, so that nobody’s under the frightful necessity of becoming first a thief and then a corpse.” 

― Thomas More, Utopia

– Corporate welfare or bailout, Retirement, social security, Healthcare
“Is not that government both unjust and ungrateful, that is so prodigal of it’s favors to those called gentlemen, or goldsmiths, or such others who are idle, or live either by flattery or by contriving the arts of vain pleasure, and, on the other hand, takes no care of those of a meaner sort, such as ploughmen, colliers, and smiths, without whom it could not subsist? But after the public has reaped all the advantage of their service, and they come to be oppressed with age, sickness, and want, all their labours and the good they have done is forgotten, and all the recompense given them is that they are left to die in great misery.” 

― Thomas More

– Job creation, Military and Defense cut
“and as robbers prove sometimes gallant soldiers, so soldiers often prove brave robbers, so near an alliance there is between those two sorts of life. ” 

― Thomas More, Utopia

If you regard all of the above to be true, then I suggest you join me as an Independent and let’s thrust the “Utopia” into every high school kids’ hand.

I hope to hear from you soon.

My regards,

Abbey S. Laurel-Smith
