Dear President Obama:
I worked hard to help you get elected.
You were to be the peoples’ servant … not international bankers’.
You were to protect the Constitution … not Wall Street’s profits.
You were to begin withdrawing troops … not escalating.
America needed FDR … not GWBush’s nicer twin brother.
Twenty million young people worked on your campaign.
Their hearts are being broken with disillusionment.
Remember your roots as a community organizer.
Help us believe in politics again.
