Aidpage Open Letter: Hope

Anonymous started this conversation

To the attention of:

Barack Obama, US President;
------------------------------------

Dear Mr. President,

This is my second letter to you, and although i know you have more important things to do than read my sob story, perhaps it will find its way to you anyway.

Before i start, please...no i beg you, defeat Romney!! Listening to him and his wife for four years is almost un-bearable to think about. So that being said i think you have done the best job you can, with what you've had to work with. A few missteps for sure(and what President hasn't?) but ovrall a job well done.

So on to my problem. One that i help create, and by the same token, had no control of.

I lost my job in Demeber of 07'. Like many others, and like many others, i wasn't prepared, and probably wasn't living within my means.

So, re-employment was slow,(months of un-employment) the eventual compensation upon re-entering the job market half to less than half, i found myself unable to honor my financial commitments. First to go was the cable, then the electric, my rental, and finally my 07' Fusion.

Herein lies the beef for me. I have been buying cars since i was 16. 12, to be exact. Paid off every damn one. Now this re-po has made me toxic to car financing.

Like i was saying i was woefully unprepared for my job loss due to Business closure. I had no rainy day fund, so i think it is important that you remind people to pay themselves first, and to live within there means. I would also like to see, Financial Institutions, to take a closer look at those of us who were credit worthy, before the economic meltdown, and who may be credit worthy again through re-entry into the job market as it is with me.

As of now they will finance me, but with a huge down payment, and very large interest. At the present time i do not have the necessary finances to get a deal done.

Thank you for letting me speak my mind, and if you can be of any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Sincerely,

Donald C Russ

Anonymous Hi!! Read your message to Barrak Obama. Such a nice letter and with great sincerity. My only comment is that you need to stress your HARDSHIP. People most likely do not take "butter cupping" serious enough. Truly you want HELP FAST! and YOU and I know, we can come to Obama as a way for HELP. I suggest, sense YOU are in great HARDSHIP, send Obama another Letter and make sure, YOU bring out MORE of your NEEDS to him. Maybe then Obama will take notice FASTER!! I realize, asking for any help is HARD. But TRULY you NEED to be more predicament. So make your WORDS stand out to ALL those reading it. My words to YOU is to let you know, it's very normal to have no money. This is why, we ALL are here on Aidpage. For we ALL are poor, and need to vent with those like Ourselves. We are SO happy you joined Aidpage. Feel free to come here and "talk it out". "BE HEARD!!!! We care and we share with ALL our Family member's here (this includes YOU).

Anyone in my opinion asking for this evil man to be President is asking for wrath...
