Dear Mr. President,
Thank you for your service, sir. Though I was not one of your supporters in either election I now believe you're doing an excellent job with what you have to work with and I do support you 100%. Sadly, I don't believe Congress is working with you as it should be nor is it doing what it should for We The People.
I am an author of numerous books of poetic tales from inspiration to folklore. This morning I was writing a tale about the possibility of a second revolution in America when after the 5th verse an inspiration suddenly hit me. I believe our governmnet is now too big when one considers the technology that is now available to us. We absolutely need a government to represent the people who are the country as a whole. We simply no longer need it to be the size that it is.
To be quite frank, Congress is out of control. They are elected by the public to do the will of the people; not to vote themselves ludicrous (ridiculous) salaries, special tax write offs, retirement plans and other benefits that actually give them their full salaries for life; even after they have been voted out (fired) from office. I won't bore you with a long letter; you are a brilliant President and understand where I and we the people are coming from. The following poem is what I wrote this morning and posted on Facebook. It will also be included in my next book which will be published later this year.
Thank you again for your leadership, honesty and integrity. May God bless you and yours always.

DON'T TREAD ON ME
"A Call to Arms"
Be careful not to tread on us,
Like the rattlesnake we will bite;
So walk lightly along your trail,
'Tis God will lead us in this fight.
This is one nation under God,
With Him on our side we can't lose;
We the people are warning you,
Be careful with each step you choose.
Not a single law should be passed,
If we the people do object;
Be sure you are the people's voice,
You are not God, just our elect.
This may be your final warning,
For the people will rise again;
It is our right and our duty,
It's only a question of when.
One more time so you understand,
We won't take your bull anymore;
It's time to keep our rights in mind,
That's what you were elected for.
But wait, something just crossed my mind,
We've no longer a need for you;
Not with today's technology,
We waste our taxes on you fools.
Time to reconstruct our Congress,
One Rep, one Senator from each state;
With a rate of pay that is fair,
WE THE PEOPLE control your fate!
