Dear Mr. President Obama,
We, as a country, need change. Of all the people I can think of I believe you know that more than anyone. The way that we have destroyed our economy and the economy of other countries needs to change. Our own troops slowly have been sinking into a mess faster than quick sand. What are we going to do with Iraq? Are we ever going to get out of there without leaving a mess that no one wants to clean up? We need to correct a few things in America and I think that you can do that.
First I would like to talk about Iraq. The whole reason we went in there is because we were supposed to destroy their weapons of mass destruction, guess what, they didn’t have any. Either that or they moved them before we could get to them. Whatever happened we ended up getting stuck there. Then we decide that we are going to capture and kill their horrible leader. OK. We did that, so now our troops are over there fighting a “war” that can’t be won. We need to fix what we have done, then get out. We were trying to make that country better and all we have done is make a mess of it. The sooner we can get them on there feet and get out of there the better. We are not only hurting them by staying there, but we are hurting ourselves.
Secondly, war. I believe there is no true point to war and that every time countries go to war it only makes things worse. What we need to do is set an example for the world showing that there is no need to go to war to solve things. We need to show that we can solve things by talking it out and maybe even making some sort of compromise. Unfortunately, there are always going to be one situation where there has to be war, but I think that America can set a good example if we are willing to try. The worst thing that could happen is that we don’t get anywhere. There is only one way we can go when we are down, that’s up. Also if we stopped having so many wars we wouldn’t need to fund them and we can use that money on something more important. Something like getting our economy back into shape.
The economy, there’s a huge subject. How we are going to fix it is what we need to concentrate on. We tried giving money to bail out banks on Wall Street. That didn’t go as we planned. We need something new. There is a cycle in business. Almost like the circle of life. A small business gets created, it grows, and grows, and just when it’s at the top of its game, it crashes. When we attempt to save the big businesses it didn’t help much. Maybe, its time for those big companies to crash so that the smaller companies will have a chance to grow and crash also.
We need change. It might take some time but if we can get to were we are back on our feet then, that will not only be better for us, but for the world. I would like you, as our new President, to really think about what we need, then go get it done. We have run out of time to delay. We need to rethink and get to work. If we can find a way to make things better then I think that the people of America will be willing to help. It’s your chance to make a difference.
