"Letters to the President" is a song recorded by the Christian pop punk group, Hawk Nelson.

The lyrics mention someone named Tommy who had something good in his life until the school made a budget cutting out the track team and the person ended up doing drugs. Its also about how American society contradicts itself ("Same sex marriage in a state where they don't care, murder is wrong but the jail time's not fair"). The singer, Jason Dunn mentions how if he was brave he'd send a letter to the president, but in Canada there's a price to pay for speaking up.
