Letter to President Obama

I decided to write a letter to President Obama regarding my feelings of how animal agriculture is (negatively) affecting climate change and healthcare and suggested that he use his position and influence to move towards a more sustainable and healthy system of food production.

Since I've heard that politicians like handwritten letters, I wrote it by hand. Below is a scanned excerpt of the letter. The full handwritten letter can be found here: Page 1, Page 2 and Page 3. My address and phone number have been blurred out on Page 3. (The text version of the letter and President Obama's response is located after the break.)

 Excerpt from letter to Obama

What are you voting for?

Like many liberals, I was a very strong supporter of Barack Obama in 2008. In fact, when hearing him speak at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, I thought to myself, "this man ought to run for president." I had fully and faithfully drank his "hope and change" Kool-Aid. I even defended some of his cowardice in the first year of his presidency, thinking that he was compromising now to build a coalition to get more done on the serious stuff, down the road.
