Write a Letter to the President

Reply Thu 16 Dec, 2010 05:41 pm

1. Organize your thoughts:

Take the time to jot down the general ideas that you want to convey in this letter. What is your subject? What are the facts? What is your opinion? Address only one topic in your letter. If you have additional topics, write an additional letter.

2. Type your letter in the appropriate format:

Use the style of a business letter.
Include the date, your full name and mailing address.
The proper greeting is "Dear Mr. President".

3. Continue your letter in a respectful tone. Use proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling. You want your message to be understood, and taken seriously. Never, ever threaten or harass in your letter. It is ok to express your opinion such as saying that you are upset or angry about a situation. It is NEVER acceptable to use threatening or harassing language. Do not use profanity.

4. Proofreading:

Have someone else read over your letter before you send it. They can often see small mistakes that you have overlooked.

5. Addressing and Mailing:

Use the correct address:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Use your correct mailing address if you hope to get a response.

Use the appropriate postage:

Use a first class letter rate stamp. How embarassing would it be for your letter to arrive "postage due"?

Dear Mister President.
It is with concern and anxiety I look on as the tax cuts to the rich are extended. This is sure to increase the revenue shortfall by some considerable amount. Some predict, it will result in a sacrifice of Social Security, to help bail us out. I staunchly oppose any and all further cuts to the system. I further suggest that we look to cuts in military spending, before applying any more domestic cuts.

"Wellll, Mr. President, it's the bees and spiders again! They stole my food stamps and sold them to the rats, and I tried to get down to my car for to honk the horn for help, but the snakes is guardin' it for the cockroaches! I go back upstairs, but the spiders has jammed the police lock! I ain't been inside for a week, and I know my that wife is sleepin' with the bees! Oh..."

"Could you state that as a question, please?"

"Well, sure, Mr. President! Where can I get a job?"

Stick to water softeners, man. Not subjects you know nothing about (vaginas, for example).
