1. It's short, sweet, and to-the-point.
2. It isn't filled with blatant hypocrisy and lies.
3. Suggested reforms are common-sense and easy.

... which is why no one in government will take it seriously.

    It's great.
    "But your words, Mr. President, don’t match your actions. You have funded and enabled the surveillance state. To protect privacy, Libertarian candidates have pledged to defund the NSA's mass surveillance program, repeal the Patriot Act, and massively downsize and consolidate redundant spy agencies.

    Mr. President, your party and the Republican Party are damaging lives here and abroad through misuse and overuse of the military."

    He is spot on. The Republicans and Democrats both want to grow government.

      Yes, and not only that they often do it in the exact same ways. They both criticized the other on separate occasions for wanting to slow growth in Medicare spending. The idea that the parties have different positions on overall level of gov't spending/intrusiveness is the biggest impediment to reducing gov't.
