Dear Mr. President Obama,
I am in the 8th grade in Durham, NC and our class was asked to write to you. I like you and think you’re funny. You promised us ‘HOPE’ for a better America. And ‘CHANGE’ in the way Washington works. But I’m confused.
When you borrowed $800 billion to keep unemployment down, it went up and now we owe that money to the Chinese. You told us that electing you would improve race relations, but there is more hatred and we are the most divided now that we’ve ever been. Your Government has sued more States than any other President. Why? You promised that you would do things differently in Washington, transparent and truthful. But you’ve appointed all of your friends to high paying CZAR jobs. Aren’t Czars kinda like Russia?
You blamed Wall Street for the collapse and making too much money, but you accepted more from them than anyone else for your reelection campaign. You talk bad about the 1%, but you are in the 1% making $750,000 this year. You condemn anyone paying less than 30% taxes but you only paid 16%. In asking for the rich to pay more taxes, you say that we all should pay our fair share, but 40% of American’s don’t pay anything. Why haven’t you talked about them? You support the “Occupiers” but many of them hate America. Why do you support them? Mr. President, you wasted billions in loans to bad solar companies but then accepted lots of money from them too. Is this right?
Mr. President, you told us that we all needed a good health care plan. But then, when no one really wanted it, you used bribes and back room midnight deals to force it on us. Why?
You said that all women should have free contraception but you didn’t mention making other drugs free like my daddy’s insulin or heart pills. Is contraception more important than insulin?
Voting in America is very precious but you don’t think people should have to show an ID to vote. But you have to show an ID to drive, to buy things, to pick up medicine and volunteer at UNC Public TV. Isn’t voting as important as these or is there some other reason you don’t want people to show their ID?
You told your Justice Department to no longer uphold the Defense of Marriage Act law. Can you just say don’t follow the laws anymore? We have many people here in NC illegally but you say not to worry with them. Why?
Mr. Obama, you say you are from Indonesia but your mom is American. When they asked you for your birth certificate, why did you give them a fake? You say you are not a Muslim, but in an interview on TV you said that you are…which is it?
You got Bin Laden, but helped elect the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist group, in Libya, Egypt, Algeria, Bahrain, Morocco, Tunisia and Yemen. Just two weeks ago you hosted the Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the White House. When asked why, you said to talk about small businesses. Really?
There are 71 Democrats in Congress who are self proclaimed members of the Communist Party. You have stated support for them. Do you want to make America communist or socialist?
My mommy says that we have to eat less now because everything costs so much more because you are killing the dollar by printing so many new ones. Why are you doing this? She’s really worried. Mr. President, I’m scared. I love this country and do not want to see it go away. Please don’t make us Islamic or Communist. I don’t like the terrorists…they’re mean. Mr. President, I’m not sure you are like us. And I don’t think I like the “Hope and Change”. Also, Mr. Obama, please don’t eat my little “Scruffy”. I love him.
