On gun control, your President Obama said the following in 2013:

But if there’s even one thing we can do, if there’s just one life we can save, we’ve got an obligation to try.

Now that you’ve gone on record to officially support the nuclear arrangement made between the United States, the country of Iran, and the United Nations, I ask you to take two things into consideration.

First, get to know to know the American hostages being held in Iran as far back as 2007, who were never part of the respective negotiations.

Jason Rezaian, Washington Post correspondent – captive since July 2014
Saeed Abedini, Christian missionary who was set to build an Iranian sanctioned orphanage – captive since July 2012
Amir Hekmati, United States Marine Corps, who entered Iran as a legal tourist to visit his elderly grandmother – captive since August 2011
Robert Levinson, private investigator and retired DEA and FBI agent who entered Iran legally via Kish Island, investigating theft/
piracy for commercial clients – captive since March 2007

These are Americans, like you. They have families and friends who miss and love them dearly, as yours would were you in their place. How can you support any arrangement that didn’t make at least one attempt to free them? Does it not bother you that partisanship pervades this issue — not a single Republican supports it – and that most Americans in any given poll wholly disapprove?

Be clear on this fact: You have gone on record for leaving Americans behind.

Second, I request the return of all money you received from the Iranian American Political Action Committee and other Iranian lobbyists as this is clearly what influenced your decision, and no doubt a violation of ethics if not flat-out treason. Consider for even a brief moment what it says about you when you knowingly take influence money from multiple criminal groups deeply connected to a country repeatedly calling for the death of non-Muslim cultures including and most importantly – their words – the Great Satan, America, and the Little Satan, Israel.

From this day forward, whatever transpires that doesn’t include the immediate and unconditional release of these American hostages and the cessation of all terrorist activities sponsored or conducted by Iran and her proxies, will be on your heads. Whatever mythical word or phrase you might throw up in defense of your deplorable behavior, history will show you were given the choice between good and evil, and you actively sought evil. Spend well your blood money; you have nothing left.

And to any fence-sitting senators, representatives, or all other officials of any capacity who haven’t decided where they stand, please use whatever remains of your integrity and soul to help our fellow Americans – one of whom is a Marine who pledged his life to save yours.

May God have mercy on your souls.

Share if you want our government to DEMAND Iran release these Americans.
