An Open Letter to Hillary Clinton Presidential Candidate
The Top Gun National Crises Troubleshooter, Retired
The Presidential Election of 2016 is over and a new president has been elected. Fortunately for the nation it was not another “Firstborn President”, whom have the reputation of getting the nation involved in wars and conflicts of all kinds with their “Must Win” attitudes. Check the data yourself on “Birth-Order, Presidents and Wars” on the internet. [i] You will also find in this data that “Middleborn Presidents” have gotten the nation out of more wars and conflicts than any of the other “Birth-Order Presidents” . Some of these recent “middle-born presidents” were D. Eisenhower, R. Nixon, J. F. Kennedy, R. Reagan and G.H.W. Bush.
But you may have inadvertently found a new way to elect our president! Your vocal and public negative opinion of the leader of Russia may have inspired them to work against you in this election through negative propaganda against your presidency! The old saw that “People who live in glass houses should not throw rocks”, applies. It appears that anyone with a vote wants something for their vote. You promised more government entitlements for votes and citizens seem to want more government entitlements, so you got their votes. Before we, as a nation, empowered all the citizens with a vote for the president, this assignment was to the state legislatures, thus “The Electoral College”. But the state legislatures also wanted something for their votes! Now with your help we have international leaders casting their vote for our president and I suppose they want something for their votes! Could it be they have chosen the person that they want to negotiate terms of agreements with?
True “Middleborn Children” grow up in the precarious position between two same sex siblings and must learn how to negotiate for their “Space”. [ii] We now have a “Middleborn President” and we are moving forward in a negotiating manner. In the 90’s I sent you kudos for your example of “Keeping the family fortune intact”, the wives responsibility [iii]. A job well done. Now as General Patton stated on his way to the Battle of the Bulge, “We are moving forward, either help or get out of the way”.
