Attn: President Barack Obama

You and I both know the Executive Actions you took this week were far beyond the bounds of your authority as President. We also know that your assertion of prosecutorial discretion in order to circumvent the will of the people and to bypass Congress was not the lawful exercise of Presidential power. Mr. President, elections have consequences and the trouncing your side took just a few short weeks ago was a resounding rejection of your policies; every single one of them; the very same policies you rightly acknowledged were on the ballot. Unfortunately, the consequences of electing an incompetent, unqualified President are what got us to this point in the first place.
Mr. President, Liberalism always results in the exact opposite of its stated intent. But, once again, we both know that the actions you took Thursday night had nothing to do with immigration reform. They were nothing more than a partisan political maneuver designed to bait the incoming Republican majority into an exaggerated response and to make you look like you actually give a damn about our porous borders and the millions of illegal aliens living in America. The fact of the matter is, if you had waited until the next Congress was seated in January you would have gotten most of what you illegally implemented with the stroke of your pen, and it would have been done with the cooperation and consent of all 3 branches of government, just as our Founders envisioned. But you knew that too and still decided to poison the well and scuttle any chance of bipartisan immigration reform for years to come; simply to exercise your dissociative narcissism and to try to remain relevant.
Mr. President, let’s stipulate that you do have the authority to just waive your hand, whip out your Presidential pen, and change laws unilaterally. Take out your pen and reverse Roe v Wade. Issue an Executive Order making the intentional killing of unborn children illegal in America. You’ve shown that you are willing to overreach your Presidential authority, and in doing so affect the lives of millions of people, so why not do it again and save the lives of millions of children? You claim that your Executive Actions on immigration reform were the right thing to do. What could be more right than taking action to end the killing of over 1 million American children every year?
Immigration reform must be implemented in America, but the first step has to be securing our borders. You can’t clean up your flooded home until you stop the flow of water. The elective killing of our unborn children has to end, but the first step must be changing the laws that allow it to be done legally. America will not stop killing its own until respect for the sanctity of every life once again becomes the norm. A show of respect by the leader of the free world would be a good first step.
As always, my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com. Write back and I’ll publish it, unedited.
