Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

( – In an “open letter” to the president, liberal  filmmaker Michael Moore offers a list of items for Barack Obama  to tackle in his second term, urging him to “get some fight” and “drive  the rich right off their fiscal cliff.”

Published Monday on his website, the Moore congratulated Obama on his reelection  victory, but “respectfully” asked that his second term not resemble the  first.

“It's not that you didn't get anything done,” Moore said.  “You got A  LOT done. But there are some very huge issues that have been left  unresolved and, dammit, we need you to get some fight in you.

“Wall Street and the uber-rich have been conducting a bloody class  war for over 30 years and it's about time they were stopped,” he said.

Moore proposes a far-left agenda that includes letting the entire  Bush-era tax cuts expire: "Drive the rich right off their fiscal cliff,” Moore says.  “The ‘fiscal cliff’ is a ruse, an invention by the  Right and the rich, to try and keep their huge tax breaks,” he said.   “On December 31, let ALL the tax cuts expire.”


“And for God's sake, man – declare Social Security and  Medicare/Medicaid untouchable,” Moore adds.  “They're not bankrupt or  anywhere near it.”

Continuing his advice for Obama to “just go for it” in his second  term, Moore demands “end all the wars now,” saying the U.S. is becoming  “addicted to war.”

Moore also suggests expanding Obamacare into a single-payer health  care system (“Medicare for all”), declaring a moratorium on home  foreclosures and evictions, reducing student debt, restoring "rigid controls" on wall Street; and getting the money out of  politics.

The “Fahrenheit 911” director also asks the president to free Bradley  Manning, the Army Private facing charges of aiding the enemy for  leaking national security documents to WikiLeaks, whom he calls an  “American hero.”

Moore concludes by urging the president to “ask us to do something.”

“You can't go this alone,” he said.  “You need an army of everyday  Americans who will fight alongside you to make this a more just and  peaceful nation… Need a bill passed? Text us and we will mobilize! The  Republicans are filibustering? We can stop them! They won't approve your  choice for Secretary of State? We'll see about that! You say you were a  community organizer. Please – start acting like one.”

Moore says the nation has “rejected the crazed ideology of this  Republican Party and we insist that you forcefully proceed in bringing  about profound change that will improve the lives of the 99%.”

“We're done hoping. We want real change,” he says.
