Open letter to Hillary Clinton
To the Editor:
Hillary, your political machine secured your nomination, but make no mistake, you did not defeat Bernie, his ideas and philosophies, or those who ascribe to them.
Many of us fully appreciate that in the end, you agreed to incorporate much of our vision for America into yours and we sincerely, but cautiously, look forward to you genuinely embracing them. We wish you well, but please be assured that we will be standing beside you as a constant reminder of the promises you made to America's Main Streets.
Convince us that you will put your energies into forwarding our mutual agenda and I can assure you that a huge percentage of the people who brought Bernie's dream to within a few points of becoming the nominee will bring their dedication and innovative spirit to your campaign.
Humbly, we have repeatedly demonstrated our strength, commitment and boundless energy, and it's proven effectiveness. Needless to say, we have earned the trust and dedication of huge segments of Main Street America, Americans you will sorely need in November.
Earn our trust, and we can turn a coin toss election into a Democratic and Independent landslide with long down-ballot coat tails. Fred Schwacke
