Dear Mr. Obama,
I am writing this letter from outside of the United States. Why you ask? What would make an american leave the very country your government is trying so very hard to keep others out of?? Well the answer is simple. I disagree with your policies. I disagree with the direction that the country is heading. I think you and everything you stand for is complete and utter bullshit. For starters, let’s talk about the job situation. Are you aware that there are more unemployed people in this country now.. than when you first started in office? But if i watch the news, unemployment levels are dropping.. yet more and more people are losing their homes. I am confused at how you can reach those type of conclusions and sell that lie to the public. Do you really think people are that dumb? While you are focusing our attention on fighting wars on other continents against people that we have never seen or know.. the country that I once loved is rapidly descending. Martin Luther King Jr. once said the government spends 10,000 dollars to kill one enemy, and only 50 dollars to help people in america suffering from poverty. I can only imagine that the number has grown over the years.
Mr. President.. did you know that there is only one nation on earth that has used nuclear weapons on another country.. and that’s the United States?? Call me crazy but it would seem that if you want to worry about someone possessing nuclear material suitable for weapons i think it would be best to start with the country that has actually done it. If you want to disarm, make everybody disarm. This whole idea of “our nukes good.. you nukes bad” type of government policy bullshit won’t play in the 21 century. People are not that stupid anymore. May I remind you of a few facts? Iran (just like the United States) has signed the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty which states under the terms of that treaty, IRAN IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NUCLEAR POWER, and not only that, but in Article 4 it goes on to say that “All the parties to the treaty shall also co-operate in contributing alone or together with other States or international organizations to the further development of the applications of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.” But in ignoring the treaty, and trying to threaten Iran with military force.. isn’t america the one in violation? why isn’t the United Nations up in arms about this? Why can Israel have a nuclear program.. but Iran can’t? Pardon me Mr. President but this sounds a lot like the same spiel your predecessor used to sell the war in Iraq. “They have weapons of mass destruction!” “Saddam is an evil man who will use them to destroy america!” meanwhile.. all these years later and we still haven’t found those WMDs. will you make jokes about it like he did? will you sacrifice the great men and women of this country for more oil and profit? Mr President, are you aware that Iran hasn’t invaded another country in 200 years? and as far as america.. i don’t need to remind you of your conquests, do i? vietnam. cuba. laos. iraq. panama. indonesia. bosnia. afghanistan. syria. the list goes on and on.. when does it stop? the american people are tired of fighting unjust wars. the american people are tired of being lied to. the american people want what other people want… PEACE. leave Iran alone and lets focus on the things that really matter. jobs. food for the poor. helping the ENTIRE country raise up and create a better future for the generations that will come after us.
Mr. President, I must be honest. I did not vote for you. I was not taken by your “blackness” and since I am not a woman I do not find you attractive. While others saw a great black man, I saw a shyster and a pimp. I hope and pray that you are able to turn away from the neoconservatives and wall street pirates that feed your machine.. but since you have been in bed with them for years that seems unlikely. I imagine others will wake up and come to the same conclusion that I did… America is not the same place it once was, the principles do not align with my sense of morality, and if i never see that country again in this lifetime it will be too soon.
Peace and Love.
