No big easy, Mr. President
Dear Mr. President,
You are correct, there is no big easy. I tapped out getting you elected so that my life would become easier. I think we are on the right track.
It is an uphill battle against the military industrial complex and greedy people, albeit, a few who want things to stay just the way they have been so they can keep gaming and beating the system.
The wealthy have stolen the middle class. The greedy have lost compassion and a sense of social responsibility. They fear that We the People might revolt and so they appeal to the most ignorant of our population to bolster their numbers at the polls. That is why they use tactics like birther and such to undermine your legitimacy and therefore undermine Our Nation.
We the People will insist on a change of priorities. We want to substitute war in the Middle East for world peace. We know that this means achieving energy independence. We don’t have 20 or even 10 years to achieve this. That is what makes this hard.
Yet, the pursuit of energy independence will be the backbone of a renewing America and restoring manufacturing America.
You need a solid partnership with business leaders who get this message. We need free enterprise to join the pursuit. That is a major challenge for you, and we must find the right policies to elicit their joining us in this endeavor.

If it were easy to do the big, meaningful things we believe will make our country better -- if it were quick -- someone would have done those things long before any of us showed up.
We've chosen to do something hard.
You know that our victories so far have been hard won: taking the difficult steps necessary to put our economy back on track, reforming Wall Street excess despite an army of lobbyists against us, and making health care more affordable and accessible despite well-organized opposition by those who profit from the status quo.
You also know we have not yet done everything we set out to do -- not nearly.
But that's a reason to work harder, not to let up. That's why we're building this campaign now. And you have to take ownership of it.
You've played a critical role in what we've built together over the last few years. So I will be direct: Can you step up and make a donation of $30 to get us started for 2012?
We've had the chance to make historic changes that touch every American: from passing a law that says women should get an equal day's pay for an equal day's work to removing 100,000 troops from Iraq.
Those things and every other important change we've made happened because people like you built an organization to win an election in 2008.
The stakes are even higher this time.
As I've spoken with supporters who are helping get this campaign started, I've met folks who are frustrated by the pace of change.
I understand that. But we knew this wouldn't be easy. The kind of change we're working for never comes easily.
Now is the time to begin again, and build the campaign that will shape our country's future.
