Mr. President, 

First let me say I am a veteran of twenty-two years in the USAF and I served overseas including Southeast Asia during the Vietnam era.  I am also the stepfather of an active soldier who served one tour in the war zone. 

I am asking you to resign as president since you have led (through misleading statements and outright lies) America into a never-ending war in Iraq against mainly Iraqis who do not want to be occupied by a foreign country intent on stealing their natural resources (oil). 

The occupation of Iraq makes America more of a target for the terrorists that you so greatly fear.  Your foreign policy has created more terrorists who hate America by fulfilling Middle Eastern fears that America wants to steal the oil resources from their countries. I believe you are afraid to stand in front of a group of Americans who are not military or part of right-wing PACs when you give your war mongering speeches. 

Your comparison of the occupation of Iraq by American forces to the Revolutionary War is correct except, in this war, America is playing the part of the British with its own King George. You bring dishonor to the country and the memory of our forefathers who fought for civil rights and freedoms which your administration continues to infringe and take away.  I can’t imagine Thomas Jefferson condoning maintaining intelligence databases on American citizens who speak out against the tyranny of your administration. 

You and your master, Vice President Cheney, believe you are above the law as demonstrated through your use of executive privilege to hide records of how you fired U.S. attorneys based on their political views and to commute the sentence of a convicted criminal, Scooter Libby, on the vice president’s staff. 

Your Vice President believes he is a fourth level of government not defined by the U.S. Constitution.  The arrogance of your administration is truly amazing.  You take away the rights of Americans and give more super rights to those in your administration.  You keep moving closer and closer to turning America into a fascist state ruled by a dictatorial oligarchy. Therefore, for the good of the country I ask that you and Vice President Cheney remove yourselves from the office that neither of you deserve.
