I just did the weirdest thing. I sent a message to the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama.
This is out of character and it makes me wonder – how else will I be spurred to take action if things continue as they’re going.
The message is short and there is much more I could have said, but here it is in its brief glory. My message to the President:
I’m horrified to hear you tout budget cuts as the right move. You won us over with your insistence on smart, people-supporting spending. Oh, and that whole anti-war thing. I’ve been uncomfortable with your actions around the wars and now I feel attacked here at home with your new budget. Tax and spend, baby – it’s the only way to win us back. Spread the wealth or lose us completely.
