Excuse me Mr. President but can we talk about that campaign promise you made in 2008? Remember? You promised your support for a permanent ban on horse slaughter. REMEMBER? !!!!

Instead of just making a bunch of useless angry comments on this blog, please do something to get the attention of the President of the United States:

IF THE 80% OF AMERICANS WHO ARE AGAINST HORSE SLAUGHTER WOULD DOWNLOAD THIS PICTURE AND PRINT IT AND SEND IT BY SNAIL MAIL TO PRESIDENT OBAMA, they would have to take them to the Oval Office in wheel barrows….

But, Oh Well………………….WELL, MAYBE SOME OF YOU WILL DO THIS?

Write your letter. You may love the President, or you may hate the President. Regardless of your sentiments, or the purpose of your letter—be it condemnation or praise—remember that you’re writing to the leader of the United States, and arguably the most powerful single person on the planet.

  • Note, the White House requests that you either type your letter on an 8-1/2 by 11 inch sheet of paper, or if you hand-write it, use ink and your most legible handwriting.
  • Format it as you would a business letter, or any formal communication:
  • Your name and address at the top right, including email address, with the date written out below that.
  • Below your name and address, and on the left side, put the following:
  • The President
  • The White House
  • 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
  • Washington, DC 20500
  • Salutation: Dear Mr. President
  • Write an honest, but respectful letter, stating your thoughts clearly and reasonably. This will be especially useful if you want your letter to actually be read. Unless you have a fondness for men in black, unmarked helicopters, and looking at the business end of a gun, don’t include any threats—overt or otherwise.
  • Close: Most Respectfully,
  • Sign your name.

Prepare the envelope. Fold your letter, and slide it into the envelope.

  • Write the address of the White House as shown below:
  • The White House
  • 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
  • Washington, DC 20500
  • Add your return address on the top left.

Send it off. Seal the envelope and take it to your nearest Post Office or letter carrier.

  1. Thank you so much. I just got the following response from the White House:

    January 17, 2013

    Dear Paula:

    Thank you for writing. I have heard from many Americans about animal welfare, and I appreciate your perspective.

    I am committed to making my Administration the most open and transparent in history, and part of delivering on that promise is hearing from people like you. I take seriously your opinions and respect your point of view on this important issue. I encourage you to visit http://www.WhiteHouse.gov to learn more about my Administration or to contact me in the future.

    Thank you, again, for writing.

    Sincerely,

    Barack Obama

    Respectful and helpful letters to the White House, along with Senators and Representatives are the best way to get our agenda noticed.
