Is it true that if we email Obama about something we oppose we will be arrested?


Source: Someone who tried to talk me out of emailing Obama in opposition to his position on international abortion.

Update 2:

NO threat involved. Just simple "you are wrong."

    No. If it was true, I'd be on death row by now.

    Actually writing the president about something youre opposed to is a good thing and encouraged. Now what will get you investigated and harrassed and possibly arrested is if you say anything that could be considered as a threat. No matter how playful you try to word it, threatening the prez= secret service on your butt. And because Obama gets so many death threats they take a lot of them seriously.

    So keep the letter professional and write freely about policy.

    Nope it's not true...

    It is the right of every American to disagree with their government and voice that disagreement...

    Law enforcement only visits when your disagreement goes off course and includes a threat...

    If you make a treat to the president you will get a visit from the secret service.

    No. Who ever told you this is a moron. You have a right to criticize those who work for you.

    NO, they have no authority to unless it is a threat.
