To George W. Bush from Kerry Voters -- sign now

Dear Mr. Bush:

Today, in your victory speech, you looked me straight in the eye when you said you were going to do what you can to earn my trust. It has become apparent to me over the past few years that you probably have no idea what that would entail. If you are sincere in this promise, you will read and heed what I have to say.

You could begin to earn my trust:

By acknowledging the bully image our nation has created for itself in the eyes not only of our adversaries, but most of our former allies, based on our attitudes and our actions in the world.

By recognizing that this image might be a factor contributing to the inflammation of terrorism we have seen during your administration, and by making your personal commitment, and taking action upon our national commitment, to behaving in such ways as to change that image, as one factor in our campaign (rather than "war" or "fight") to end terrorism.

By opening your paradigm -- the filters through which you see -- to embrace the truth that the way you see God and the firmament is neither the only way, not the "correct" way. Each living human has his or her unique way of sorting out reality and relating to it, and insofar as that understanding and the behavior it engenders does no harm to others, he or she is entitled to it, and deserves respect for it. If you are able to do this, it will facilitate your dealing with the points made above.

By further opening to the truth that fear is not something imposed upon us by any outside factor -- it is a feeling that we hold inside. When you have truly adjusted to this transformative shift of awareness, you, and we, will no longer have enemies in the world. Yes, I could trust a leader who is noble enough to acknowledge differences and honor them, and yes, even despise particular behaviors, without making enemies of other human beings.

By assertively pursuing a peaceful and sustainable relationship with the natural world, in recognition that just as every human is entitled to life and liberty, so is every living thing. And, much more than that, we humans have been graced by nature (you might call it God's Plan) with our survival and evolution as a species, to the point of commanding the power of life and death over all other species. As we come to full realization of our degree of control, we must, in equal measure, take our responsibility for preserving the balance and flow of natural energies and materials and beings on the planet, to assure ourselves of our own survival as a species, and to see that we are not damaging the life potential of the biosphere. Dynamic balance is one of the laws of nature, and we owe it to Life itself to do all we can to maintain that balance. I have heard you say "What we need is jobs." I want to hear you say, "What is most precious and important to us is life itself."

When you demonstrate by your actions that you understand these five points, that is when you will have earned my trust. I believe it will also serve to unite Americans and the world to cooperate in our pursuit of happiness.

Thank you for speaking with me.
