Dear President Barack Obama,

Your frivolous attitude towards the future of the United States is getting out of hand quickly. It is endangering the lives of American citizens and washing away our reputation as a prosperous nation. You've introduced a healthcare bill that forces Americans to buy your service. You've lied and said, "If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan". Unemployment has increased and income has gone down. Our national debt has sky rocketed in just a few years while you've been in office.  NSA surveillance interferes with the privacy of average American citizens. You'll make statements, and then you won't act upon them. An example of this is the situation in Syria; in which chemical weapons such as poisonous gases were used to kill more than 1,400 people including innocent men, women, and children.  You said you would do something about it, but never really did. It's not the color of your skin that drives me to have disdain for you, but your poor decisions as the current leader of this nation. It is time for you to wake up and realize how much responsibility you really have and how important it is that you take in consideration the fact that you are part of the solution to our country's problems. "Great power involves great responsibility". This quote is from Franklin D. Roosevelt, a good president. You have had your accomplishments such as ordering special forces to raid the compound in Pakistan; effectively killing Osama Bin Laden. You're devotion to peace, prosperity, and trying hard to better our nation gains my respect for you. You have good intentions but they mean nothing if you do not act upon them and make a difference like you are supposed to do as President. I understand it is a difficult job but some of your solutions to our problems are careless and not well thought-out. I hope that you will fix some our nations biggest problems or at least help them. I hope you continue to do the things that you do right for our nation. This is your last term; do something that will make you remembered, preferably in a positive way. You're not all that bad; you have been re-elected. You're a respectable person; and nobody is perfect, but you need to step up your game and help this nation in any way you can. Sometimes you are not intimidating, and some say you are worse than Bush. Push forward for our freedom, independence, reputation, and economic stability. Make the best decisions you can for the sake of our nation and its citizens. Don't lose sight of what's important, and don't give up along the way. Stay strong; for yourself, and for the future of America. Show the people of this nation and the rest of the world that you have what it takes to run a nation that is in need of a smart and effective leader to keep us afloat and not drown among the anarchy of other nations. America isn't the best; but we are a hell of a lot better than some of the other countries out there. It is crucial that we stay this way; with the help of you, our citizens, and all of the other political leaders. We must wok together to preserve our freedom and power for us and for generations to come. Be an example for men who aspire to be in your position one day. Keep your head high; and don't let the darkness swallow you up. Stay strong and help the people of this nation to stay strong and optimistic. This nation is in need of change; and you could be a solution if you worked smart and hard enough. I know you can't fix everything that's wrong with this country, but you can solve or help some of them. Do your best; and try not to fuck up any more than you already have.

Yours truly,
A very concerned American
