Dear Obama,
Please don't veto that defense spending bill. My father works for Lockeed, if you don't sign that contract for those F-22's, my father will be out of a job. So will the other fathers and husbands that will get laid off, and all the vendors that supply the materials will be out of jobs. This would just add to that economic crisis, not help it. Isn't that a little bit opposite of what you claim to be doing? You're looking at this from a defense spending point of view, which would be good if these were normal times. But, they are not. If you buy those planes, people will be able to keep their jobs, and their finances will be stable. Right now, they are worried about losing their jobs, nobody is spending any money. So none of that money is going into circulation. Isn't that a little counterproductive? I know economics isn't your best subject, but surely you have somebody that you pay lot of money to see these things. Aren't you trying to make it so that everyone can be financially stable? Thats what I thought, but so far, I haven't seen you keep any of the promises that you made during your campaign. And that so-called "bailout" of yours didnt do diddly. You gave those lazy fatcats on Wall Street all that money for nothing, no strings. Now you don't know where it went and all we hear about is how AIG is getting more bonuses, 2.4 million of them. Thats more money than I will ever see in my life, but AIG seems to be handing it out like candy, while my fellow students and I are wondering if we will even be able to get a job come graduation. Right now, it's not looking likely.
You see, what you should have done, is give that money to the American people, (it's our money anyways) who would have in turn spent it, (which would have boosted the economy) and saved it, (which would have pulled the banks out of the hole). It doesn't take a genius economist to come up with something like that, I myself made a "C" in economics. The point is, while you're out gallavanting around the world, apologizing for the U.S. and demeaning us to other countries, we are drowning here.
I know you want to improve the U.S. global reputation and our dealings with other countries, but that is not important right now, if we were doing well, that probably would be important, but you can't start spending money until you make it. Oh, I forgot, you don't know that rule, you've already spent more money than my great-grandchildren will be able to pay back.
You need to get a better handle on this or your people will be refugeeing to other countries instead of the other way around.

signed,

A very concerned citizen

I would just like to share this letter written by a teacher, it mirrors my sentiments exactly.

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington , DC 20500

Mr. Obama:

I have had it with you and your administration, sir... Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally.You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United States . You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth. I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about?Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century? Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States ? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this? Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia . You don't show Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia . How dare you, sir! How dare you! You can't find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don't want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey . You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What's the matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you. You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.What about the U.S... House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members -- on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven't said anything about that... Who authorized that? I surely didn't! Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been=2 0awarded $51 million -- not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven't you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now. I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you. I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.

Sincerely,

Every Real American P.S... I rarely ask that emails be 'passed around'............. PLEASE SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST......it's past time for all Americans to wake up!

I think out government is turning into a socialist government. Look at it! Its creeping up slowly but surely. Little by little, they are taking over more and more thinking for us. I don't know which is worse, the government telling us that we can't eat fatty food if we so choose to, where we can't smoke, or the newest one coming up; that we no longer have the liberty of being free from pain. The FDA has recommended that Vicodin and Percocet be banned because Acetominophen is the leading cause of liver damage. Are you kidding me? What are people with chronic pain supposed to do? What about people who just got out of surgery? They will have two choices, tylenol (not even the extra strength kind) or oxycontin, which is just about the same as heroin. My boyfriend had back surgery a while back, for a month afterwards, if he even breathed wrong, he was in excruciating pain. If he hadn't had the percocet, he probably would not have gotten better as fast as he did. I don't understand it. People have minds, they can think for themselves. They know that alcohol is bad for you, but they drink anyways and destroy their livers. Are we going to go back to Prohibition? (Because we know how well that worked out.) If the government continues on like this, we are going to be just like China, with a government that tells us what to do, and checks up on us all the time. What happened to home of the free and the brave? Now it is more like the home of the kind-of-free and the wimps who no longer think for themselves. This is what happens when Liberals get the majority of the say in how this country is run. I would like to know which freedom is going next. The right to free speech? The right to police not conducting illegal searches and seizures? What's next???
