4 years left

Dear George:

You've got 4 years left. Use them to give Americans a foreign policy to be proud of. Diplomacy is cheaper than war, and more effective, given the enemies' natures. However, for terrorists (and supporters), where diplomacy is not the only answer, what can I say? Build a covert intelligence capability to get among them and then take apart their organizations; piece by piece, because right now, CNN knows about terrorist attacks before the people we pay billions to for those answers.

Keep religion and morality out of politics and law. Period. You can't legislate morality. Get out of the drug war and make most drugs legal; then regulate the stuff like anything else the FDA does.

Finally, invest in education/research institutions; the return on investment of $100 Billion spent here is greater than the ROI from our conflicts in the Middle East & South America.

With great power comes great responsibility. Don't be a coward.

Please do not use comments for personal attacks. One of the goals of this project is to allow these open letters to foster civil (and civic) debate, so please keep personal attacks to yourselves, even if you disagree with the letter/comments here. Better yet, write a letter yourself.
