Dear HinduboyfromNepal,

If you and the world feel so terribly concerned on how we should elect our President then y'all should speak really nicely to us, present your arguments succinctly and comprehensively.

Tell us why helping Nepal and Kashmir would affect our economy positively.

Tell us how Nepal or Kashmir would prevent us from spending US$1Trillion on Iraq which we should otherwise spend in educating our children.

Tell me how Nepal and Kashmir would stop me from feeling depressed everytime someone I know sends their son or daughter away to Iraq. I care about our soldiers - I don't care that much about you. I care about India, Pakistan and China, etc but in the big picture, these concerns pale in comparison to our own concerns and our own American-centric view of the world.

If choosing between having to save Nepal and Kashmir and having to save illiterate American high school kids who has been left behind by no-child-left-behind, why should I vote for a McCain-Palin who would be more being busybody meddling with other countries than saving our own high school kids. Tell us how Nepal and Kashmir would help reduce our exorbitant and ineffective health insurance plans.

If you and the world is not willing to use kind and convincing persuasions to tell us how to elect our President then the best thing is for you to become a US citizen.

We elect our President indirectly by electing an electoral college. The world could indirectly-indirectly elect the US President by petitioning Americans. Therefore, write to us, speak to us, petition us your views. Beg us to elect the American President of your choice. We are all ears. Your attitudes have put us in such a megalomaniac position that Americans are starting to feel we are the movers and shakers of the world.

In your petitions that you send to Americans, remember to reduce the amount of noise sentences because many Americans, including myself, do have problems focusing when there is too much noise.
