Mr. President, I think that if you sit by a stream and watch how successful the water is—because it is flexible—you too will realize that to be a strong leader and to put our country's economy on the path to job creation you must be nimble. You have spent nearly five years chipping away at a metaphorical rock, trying to change our country—which was founded on freedom, entrepreneurship and faith—into a socialist and secular country.

Your stubbornness in redistributing wealth is getting us nowhere. Your persistence in keeping America's corporate tax rate as the highest among G20 economies is not creating jobs. It’s time for you to humble yourself, become flexible and exhibit a virtue that you tell us we need to exhibit: "The courage to change."

3.) Visit a free country where adults are not treated like babies. Whether you visit a remote island or take a rocket ship to an undiscovered planet, you need to experience how peaceful and happy people become when their government respects their God-given, natural rights and freedom.

The Constitution did not make you the commander-in-chief of cradles. Your job is not to walk around with a basketful of blankies, pacifiers and warm bottles to make us feel safe and comforted. We don’t need you to burp us. We don’t need you to hold our hand when we cross the street. We don’t need you to tuck us in at night and read us a bedtime story. We need you to enforce the law of the land and leave us free to live the way our Maker and our country’s founders intended for us to live: Freely.

P.S. Be sure to send a postcard from your next vacation!
