What the country wants

Dear George:

I understand that you got the Popular, and Electoral votes, but it doesn't mean that the Democrats don't count as well. Only 17% of the people between ages 18-29 voted this year, so if these individuals voted, you might not have won today. I really urge you to make you decisions, not according to what you think is right, but according to what the country wants. Our country used to be respected by other countries, maybe even loved when Kennedy served as president, but do you see what is happening now? We need good foreign relationships if we don't want terrorism. I also want to bring up the subject of abortion. This may not be true, but I think that it is because of your religion that you are choosing to not have abortion. You can argue that you are killing a potential life, aren't you also doing the same in war? Also, if a incapable individual/family is taking care of a child, we don't know what is going to happen to that child. Most children who are not loved turn to a life of crime because they don't have any support. Would you want this to happen? If you are reading this, thank you very much for your consideration, I know that most people or presidents wouldn't listen to a mere 12 year, but I'd like to say that everyone in this country should have a voice, and here's mine.
