Dear US government, As an American citizen living overseas, I would appreciate your consideration of my experience as a foreigner. I grow tired fielding many questions regarding your objectives. You constantly contradict the values upon which you were founded. I want to be a proud representative of my country, but the rationale and actions taken by you confound me. No one outside your borders views the United States as a free, democratic country any longer. There is a dismal wealth disparity, the highest of all industrialized nations, quality of life is deteriorating quickly, and the superior educational system has become vastly inferior. The sentiment you consider jealously of the current American way of life is simply confusion with the apparent lack of morality and ethics within the country. At best, I describe your actions as bipolar, at worst they are asinine. I can no longer make excuses for you; I am ashamed. What I miss about you is my friends and loved ones, the geography, the pride I have for my ancestors, and the distant history of a country I once cherished. Many of your actions dishonor those who served and continue to serve you by sacrificing their lives, the heroes of our once great nation. I implore you, the government, and we, the citizens of a once great nation, to take whatever bold steps are necessary to regain our national pride and moral conscience before it is too late. Thank you.
