Letter to Obama...
 
I wrote a letter to the new President-Elect. I'll be sending it to him via his transition website in a few moments.

Here's the letter, on a special page of my site...

I just sent him the URL via his transition site's 'Your Vision' page.

Here's the text of the message...

I have a lot of concerns about our beloved republic. So, I wrote an open letter to our new President-Elect and placed it on a special page of my website. That page can be seen at this URL:

I hope this gives our next Commander-in-Chief a few helpful hints and ideas on how to solve some of our country's pressing problems.

We'll see how this goes...

There's so many Things wrong with Your Letter that I can barely get into them, but Don't capitalize Words Randomly in the middle of sentences.

As for the content, I particularly like how you advocate replacing the income tax with a 1 to 5 percent sales tax. :lol: And how you want your horrific school system to remain just as shitty and inefficient? :lol: And then, and then how you say that the government shouldn't spend money it doesn't have, but it should hand over tens of billions of dollars to that auto industry, which should then be forced to fuck over everyone who's worked for them! :guffaw: Oooh oooh and then when you think that the USA has any real quantities of oil to drill? :guffaw: And I haven't even got to the bits where you prefer to have no medical insurance, instead of adopting a system that's cheaper for both the people and the government that covers a greater percentage of the population, where you want to destroy the social safety net and where you want the US military to develop an army of Daleks to invade the middle east.

Do you perchance write for Stephen Colbert?

You know you have that removed name at the end of the letter you linked to in your first post right?

You could've just said

"Dear Obama,

Be a right-wing Republican.

Thanks,
Some guy from the Internet"

And saved yourself a bunch of time.

I hear horror stories about Canadians having to fill out forms and wait three weeks to see doctors. Hearing stories like that makes this idea more and more abhorrent each time it crosses my mind. The fact that some Canadians also travel to the U.S. to get critical surgeries that their government won't pay for is also quite scary.
This is just such utter b.s. Why do Americans not understand our healthcare system? It works. I've never NEVER had to wait to see my or any other doctor. Both my parents have had cancer, and both their surgeries were within a very reasonable time frame.

No one I know ever went into debt for getting sick. How 'bout you?

I gotta say, it takes ball to list a TrekBBS thread in your works cited. If that doesn't get academia to take you seriously, I don't what will get those left-wing bastards to change their mind.

Also, who would object to paying an extra few dollars on an item that will already cost one hundred dollars anyway?
uh, people who count their pennies to put food on the table. Nice elitism though.

Well production of more domestic oil is estimated to take 10 years and is much less than what we consume and would be as polluting, so I think the focus should be on cleaner, renewable sources.
