Filmmaker asks, "fix the sad mess we're in."
Filmmaker and professional feather ruffler Michael Moore has penned an open letter to the newly re-elected President Barack Obama asking, suggesting and at some points demanding that he "fix the sad mess we're in."
The lengthy plea appears in a column Moore writes for The Huffington Post and also contains a list of suggestions including:
End all wars now
End the drug war
Declare a moratorium on foreclosures and evictions
Reduce student loan debt
"You have to do the job we elected you to do. You have to take your massive 126-electoral vote margin and just go for it," says Moore.
He also states, "We want real change. And if we can't get it in the second term of a great and good man like you, then really -- what's the use? Why are we even bothering? Yes, we're that discouraged and disenchanted."
