An Open Letter to President Obama

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada



Dear Mr. President (Mr. Obama),

I felt compelled to write you today to give you an important message. It would be easy for me to think that I am wasting my time and that you will never see these words, but my intuition is urging me to write this, and therefore I know it serves a purpose...

I want you to know that I, along with a host of others, choose to believe in you, Mr. Obama.  We support you, because we know intuitively that you represent the potential for change. Everything starts with "intention" and if you have the willingness to do so, you are in a position to play a huge role in turning things around. For many years (generations, in fact), America (along with many other countries) has been living under a dark shadow that has been caused by the greed of the world's most powerful people and every time a rare individual came along that truly desired to change the status quo, something bad happened to them. I believe that John F. Kennedy was such a man. He had integrity, as did Martin Luther King. They were both good examples of people who died while standing up for what they believed in and I believe that they were both men of integrity who used their intuition to make decisions, and undoubtedly refused the advice of advisors on many occasions. Be vigilant, Mr. President, watch your back and do not trust the advice of others over the advice of your own inner voice (your intuition) for your intuition is where the answers lay. Remember that these people only have practice at running the country in the "old world way" and that way has failed absolutely. In a way, we are already starting fresh whether we like it or not and so what the world needs now, more than anything else, is simply Governance with integrity. The same kind of integrity that gave rise to the "Declaration of Independence" in America and the implementation of "rights and freedoms for all" that so many fought and died for in countries all over the world.

Don't be afraid to think outside the box, Mr. President. While it is true that there is a deepening recession taking place, something much more important is going on in the background. There is a "HOUSE CLEANING" going on and "IT IS NECESSARY"! When it is over there will be nothing left hiding in the dark corners...nothing left hiding in the nooks and crannies. No more skulking about in the corridors of the White House and the Pentagon late at night while the country sleeps. The shadows and darkness (back rooms and secret deals, pay-offs, extortion, bribery and corruption), where people with ill intentions have always been able to hide, are disappearing quickly now. These people are all starting to be routed out, one by one and this will continue until there are none left.  Remember that you can put a little bit of darkness in a room full of light, and it has no effect, but if you light a single candle in even the darkest place, it is there for all to see!

Your task is monumental because you surely have inherited a mess like no other incoming President before you. Most assuredly, you are reluctant to make decisions that are going to make things worse in the short term and you cringe at the thought of letting giants fall because you fear the possible economic consequences and I don't blame you.  We must all accept the fact that it will happen, if it must, and all the money that the Federal Reserve could ever print will not change that fact. It will only dig the American People (and indeed the world) deeper and deeper and the recovery will take longer and longer and soon the debt with be added onto yet another generation. Congress Rep. Ron Paul was/is right about that. There is a man that you should consider having close to you. He has integrity and he is not afraid to tell his "truth". He can stand on his own 2 feet, and he is your ally. I know this though, if you accept the "truth" and intuit what really needs to be done, you then need to come forward (despite shrieks of disapproval from those who are only concerned about their own interests), and admit to the American people and to the world, that we have no choice but to let this globalized house of cards (un-backed fiat financial systems/debt based economies/corrupt financial markets and corporations) come crashing down.. It cannot no longer be sustained (as current events are proving beyond a shadow of a doubt), and so we are now faced with the grim reality that wholesale change is needed and that it will no doubt have to get worse before it gets better. You are not really letting the giants fall after all. They are doing that all on their own. For if they cannot stand on their own 2 feet without help from those "little people" who have no means to help them, what good are they then to the people or to the economy? They are simply bottomless pits and every time they will come back crying, "I need more money, I need more help!" Indeed, this is the worst thing to do, for if a man knows that he can always come back with his hand held out (and that the government will always look after him when he gets his business in trouble), what motivation would he have to run his business responsibly, so that it can succeed on its own merit? Now there is talk of regulating this and taking over that. Now there are many screaming that we need more and more government intervention and interference in matters that should/can take care of themselves in the open market and in the light of day. We need more regulation! More government oversight! Where does the madness stop?

All the government needs to do is simply get out of its own way and Govern with integrity. It simply needs to be accountable, just like the rest of us do. It needs to set an example for the rest of society because people always follow the example set by those in leadership. In spite of the lack of leadership shown in recent decades, the people now have renewed hope once again. Hope that things will be different this time. Mr. President, the change in the way government "governs it own conduct" will gain momentum with your help. In Congress, Dr. Ron Paul has been like a "lone voice in the wilderness" because until now he has been one of the few men willing to risk coming forward and admitting the truth and for that he deserves our thanks. But there are many others in Congress (and the House) and in governments all around the world (mine included), I am sure, sitting on the fence, Sir, and they all WANT to come forward as well, because they know the truth just like the rest of us do. They don't like the way things are any more than the rest of us do. They are simply afraid to be the first ones to step forward into the light but once you set the right example for them to follow, they will be emboldened and the groundswell for change in the way the government conducts itself will begin. When this happens, no one will be able to stop it. Things will truly begin to change and then we can all get on with the important business of rebuilding in earnest....and in integrity.

We ALL know this to be true because we are shifting the way that we think. We are, through the awakening of our intuition and re-connection with our higher selves, coming to realize that we are all one and part of a global family...indeed a global consciousness. We are beginning to understand that we are all connected and with that knowledge in hand, we will move forward together and make this world once again into what it has not been for a very long time...


Sincerely yours,

Anthony Lukashuk

Please do your part to help make change....
