You’ll never have a chance to deliver a message to Hillary Clinton face to face. In due course, Trump will have that chance on the debate stage. You and millions of other ordinary Joes fantasize about having such a meeting. What might you say?
“Hillary, just thought you might like to know that America is an incomparable asset. Let me explain what an asset is. In simple terms, an asset is a beneficial belonging. In simpler terms, it is wealth. It can be money, a home, a power plant, a skyscraper, a person. The cities, hamlets, roadways, byways, bridges, businesses, power plants, stadiums — the entire infrastructure of this country, including millions of back yards with barbecue grills and outdoor furniture of ordinary people — is one colossal asset. Since before July 4, 1776, and especially after that day, individual Americans have toiled, fought, bled and died to create these assets. They paid taxes to finance construction of roads, bridges, schools and other public works. The free enterprise system, in their hands, invented untold miracles in medicine, energy, transportation, communication, farming and thousands of ingenious products and services that produced the highest standard of living in the history of mankind. Job by job, individual Americans built this country from the ground up. You see, Madam, the point is this — the Government did not and does not move the American needle. The Government did not create America’s wealth and does not own America’s wealth. The people own it. The Government has two critical responsibilities — to make and enforce laws and to safeguard our national security from enemies, foreign and domestic. But you seem to think it’s the government’s job to tell people how to live, how to work and even how to think. Yet, Madam, in your career, you are one of the very few people I know who has not accomplished one job to move the American needle — to create one asset. You haven’t worked at one practical job that makes, builds or provides anything to anyone that enhances their quality of life. In a lifetime political career, you were paid by taxpayers to ostensibly look out for the public interest. The most important of those jobs was Secretary of State — and the crux of that job was to protect and defend America’s national interest. A mega responsibility. Incomprehensibly, however, you in fact risked your country’s national security and the lives of America’s most precious assets. You broke the law and lied about it. Why would you do that? What possible reason could you have to risk operating your own private computer server? Let’s make a stab at your motive. Let’s ask a 5th grader. He or she might suspect you had a ton of secrets, that you had something to hide from your employer — the people. That supposition seems reasonable enough when you look deeper. Consider that your annual salary as SOS was only $186,000. You operated no business; it appears you weren’t moonlighting as a hedge fund manager or professional athlete; yet quite suddenly, your estimated net worth in a few short years is over $30 million. How does someone accumulate a fortune without working? The smart money says you needed a private server to arrange hefty payments to the Clinton Foundation from foreign sources in exchange for — what? You deny it. Then, by all means, tell the American people how you managed to acquire that wealth — how you can afford to own three sprawling estates. Presumably, large corporations and other organizations did pay you well for giving speeches. Tell the American people why your speeches were worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Tell them what you said or what you did or what you promised to earn that money. You see, Madam, you want to be President. Some people want to be able to trust a President. You’ve blasted me for having poor character and for being a dangerous person, unfit for public office. I admit I’m a little miffed at that criticism. I don’t mind being criticized by my peers, by people in the offices, at the factories and on the farms, working like crazy to get ahead to take care of their families and build a good life. I love those people. I love to know those people and hire those people. They are free to cut me down anytime. They earned that right. I’m miffed because someone like you hasn’t earned the right to judge anyone. Many years back, when I was a corporate crony, I said publicly you were a good person. Sucking up was a big mistake, proving that politics is a dirty business. If a get the chance, I want to wash away my sin. I want to start by cleaning house. The first one that needs cleaning is the White House.”
