Dear Mr. President:

Dear Mr. President:

I can't say that I approve of your policies, and I can't say I really respect you as a person, but you are the President. My grandmother taught me at a young age to respect the office you hold, she never said anything about respecting the person holding it. But I must congratulate you on being the first black man to be elected to the presidency, that much credit is due you. And you do carry a great deal of prestige with that title.

I am a Conservative, Republican  living in the Southeast United States, who has grown incredibly displeased with the direction you have proceeded to take my country. In the following body of this letter, sir, I will address some key issues I have with some of the decisions you have made during your presidency.

You have made a great effort (or so you say) of insuring the uninsured, but you were kept in the dark about the failure of the Obamacare website. I must question why you haven't fired or at least disciplined Kathleen Sebelius for the disastrous rollout of the Obamacare website, along with the entire law itself (hey, please don't get mad at me for calling it that, it does have your name on it and you did introduce it). On top of that, you may or may not have known 1,496,000 people have now lost insurance in five states under your new healthcare law. How will you explain yourself to them? Why sir, are you not required to participate in the very law you created?

Moving on. You have all of today's modern technology at your fingertips, and with all of that technology you managed to spy on hundreds of millions of unsuspecting Americans via the NSA. But what strikes me odd is that you couldn't craft and launch a simple healthcare website with similar technology. Why is that Mr. President? Why sir, did you willfully lie to us about being able to keep our plans and our doctors under Obamacare? Did you somehow not know this was the case? Or did you know all along?

You say you have presided over a record number of deportations under your watch. Alright, then why, sir, did you grant amnesty to 800,000 illegal immigrants and their children? I am as an American citizen appalled by this act. One of your biggest responsibilities to Americans is to ensure our border is secure, not overly porous. We have laws on the books that you have refused to enforce, or have outrightly broken to give amnesty to all of those people.

In regards to what happened on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya: What were you thinking, Mr. President? The families of four brave men who died that night in the consulate are still searching for answers, Mr. President, why do you insist on lying about it? Why didn't you simply tell the truth to them and to the American people?

As far as our spending is concerned, why haven't you done anything to address our growing national debt and out of control spending? Why are you allowing Harry Reid to repeatedly block any attempt by the House to address the issue? Our national debt hit $17 trillion immediately following the end of the government shutdown. However, you continue claiming you "inherited" that mess from President George W. Bush. You have been personally responsible for spending over $6 trillion, and adding just that much to our debt in the five years you've been in office. When will you get around to that?

I have also noticed how callously you treat our soldiers and veterans. No greater example of such came during the partial government shutdown when you refused access to thousands of WWII veterans to a memorial they helped to create with their own blood, sweat and tears. How come you feel like these men and women don't deserve any reverence for the literal hell they've been through? Why did you feel it necessary to barricade them?

There are numerous other issues I take exception to that you yourself are responsible for, namely your wavering stances on gay marriage, and your abandonment of the Defense of Marriage Act among other things, I know you are a busy man, Mr. President, so I'll close with this final question: Just how long do you think Americans will remain ignorant of what you and your colleagues are doing there in Washington? Again, I thank you for taking the time to read this rather lengthy letter.
