We all know that the United States voting season is underway and there is already tons of controversy, paranoia, debate, etc.

What I hear a lot though is negativity about both candidates, not just one.

With that said, I'm sure many of you feel the country could improve greatly and you hope that our next president will be the one to make that change, but there is still a great cloud of doubt floating in the air.

But what if you could run? What things would you focus on? What changes would you make, economically, energy-wise, militarily, socially? What if YOU were to run for president?

If I was president I would be assassinated so fast for my beliefs.
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

I'm a woman..I wouldn't stand a chance


maybe if I campaigned naked or something...nah

I'm S.O.L.
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

I imagine myself president of the US.

I'm a french canadian guy, pro abortion, pro gay marriage, atheist, against war, pro gun control, but for a really competitive economy on the international scene. I'd try to get "Creation Science" (notice the quotation marks) out of the public education system and confine its teaching in private, christian schools ONLY, pro universal healthcare, taxing carbon emissions...

I'd be assassinated in a second.

If I was american, yeah, maybe. But my views towards religion to get it OUT of the public system (federal offices, schools etc..) are more radical.

I would make a terrible president. Nothing would ever get done, it'd be like the Carter administration all over again. It's best for everyone if I don't run.

Obviously the President can't do it by himself, but he can certainly help to facilitate such a change.

Quote by npaoun
I doubt I would be able to pass most of the bills for stuff I wan't to change during presidency, but, I would try to make less government. Reform welfare because I don't want to pay for their crap and too many people abuse the system. Have a flat income tax or possibly a 25-30% sales tax on everything and you would get your entire pay check without federal taxes being removed. Open up drilling in ares it isn't allowed and also explore alernate sources of energy. Legalize gay marriage...they aren't directly affecting my life so who cares? I wouldn't let them adopt kids though because there are too many gray areas there. If I would legalize marijuana I would tax it and have it be a controlled substance just like alcohol, and it would have laws to go with it for things such as driving. I think the economy and the government could benifit off the legalization of weed. Kick the illegals out and reform boarder control. Also no universal healthcare. There is certainly alot more, but those are some of the major ones. Most of all though, I would want less government. We don't need the government telling us how to run our lives, educate us, take care of our medical needs, and tell us how to raise our children. I would want to go back to laissez faire and just leave things be, and have the constitution and bill of rights dictate what my government can and cannot do, no exceptions. I feel we are getting away from this, and its is of the upmost importance. Congrats to anyone who read that wall of text. Im independent by the way.

+1 to you an I.

meh.. I'll just go along with everyone's false assumption that everyone is making that presidents have absolute power.

1. Legalize ALL drugs.

2. Raise taxes, increase spending to education and other social programs.

3. Drastically cut military funding.

4. Make health care free!

5. Get out of Iraq and Afghanistan.

6. Give every American the right to die.

7. Much stricter gun control.

8. More social programs.

There's a lot more, but I'm tired.. I also don't care if you disagree with me.
