The United States is in war with Iraq. Osama Bin Laden is on the loose. Gas prices are high. Aids and cancer is affecting everyone and researchers need money to find a cure. NASA is spending a buttload of money to observe mars. Meanwhile, you're the president of the United States and you have enough power to start more schools, raise minimum wage, select who you want to have in the supremee court (something like that). What will you do as the leader of the United States? Will your decisions help or hurt the people? You decide.

First, I would take troops out of Iraq. Then I would spend as much money as I could on building houses for the homeless, feeding the hungry, and all of that common charity stuff. I would have to raise taxes, though, to make better schools and what not, but I would probably take it all from the rich people - they've had it too good for too long.

I would re-think a strategy for the Iraq war (to finnish the job ASAP). Set programs that will help boost the economy. Alternative to welfare. Lower taxes, leave the UN, Outlaw abortion, get the country to switch to using ethenol and alternatives fuels and become more independant, strengthen relations with our trade parters, make government smaller (which is what our founding fathers wanted) cut some funding to NASA and spend more on education. Offer government college scolarships, and pass a law that prevents illegal imagrints getting jobs instead of spening all that money on fences and border patroll -_-

:) I think we would get along rather well. but I don't agree with you on outlawing abortion. I would also higher the taxes then spend the money on more crucial research that would someday solve some of the society's problems, especially on global warming then take immediate action. But before I give out money, I would put those researchers under tough scrutiny and not let them take large-scale actions without the approval of others.
I would also like to take over Greenland (>D) and build a new country out of it. I'd make immigration fees there lower so that people from third world countries are able to immigrate there easier, since it would need more people. I'd make kids go to school at 2 (if I was able to read at 2, anyone can -_-), have three kindergartens instead of two, keep grades 1-8 but make the curriculum tougher, and make high school last for 5 years. Put emphasis on making children have a thirst for learning instead of simply drilling things in their heads. I would make the arts (visual and music) a vital part of the curriculum, but it would be optional by high school. I would take off some of the high school prerequisites if the student has enough knowledge about the course she wants to get into (set up screening tests), set up higher standards for gifted education, and properly separate bright students from gifted students. Be more lenient about acceleration. Keep an eye out for underachievers since they can also be gifted, but are not being challenged enough and are so bored out of their minds that they won't bother doing work. Encourage social programs and educate parents more about parenting. I would build a stronger army, strengthen ties with Japan, China, Korea, Germany, the UK, Russia, and Northern European countries. Possibly Italy, Spain, India and France as well. Build more opportunities for exchange trips to those countries. Find a way to clone natural resources. Educate the public more about politics and issues and hear their opinions. Influence the public in every moral way possible. After influencing them, there would always be a bunch that would disagree. Hear them out and think of ways to compromise before executing any of the actions above. Make the public’s contentment a first priority, and put society and human advancement next on the list.
Like Digs, I would also rethink a strategy for the Iraq war. I just might put a microchip on every person in the world and there should be no way of getting the chip out, accidentally or intentionally, otherwise it would self-destruct. But that seems desperate and rather stupid so let’s hope I won’t go in that direction. =|


... it's 11:20 pm, and I feel like I'm not thinking enough *slaps head* and on the verge of becoming a fascist dictator. -_- I must look really ridiculous, but some of my other ideas are more "out there." >< I need to take some things more seriously, I know. =D I’ll edit later, probably.

Simple, first of all i would stop funding those things like aiding the homeless and other poor countries, i would focus most of the budget on the army to make it better and to design more weapons, i would poor in alot of troops into iraq and iran, than force their leaders to practically give me free oil which would solve many problems, while i'm add it i increase the tariffs on good imported into the usa, also i would strengthen ties with powerful countries like china, than conquer all other other countries in the americas like canada, mexico, etc. than i prepare an invasion of europe, than i would annex the africans w/o a war cause i doubt they can do anything than i backstab all my allies one by one an take over the world

See the problem is the war in Iraq isn't really cut and dry. It's kind of like sex with a beautiful woman, pull out too early and she's left with a huge mess to clean up, pull out too late and you're in deep doo-doo. On that note raising taxes wouldn't be advisable. It would be heavily taxing upon the upper middle class who already pay a stupid amount. If you don't know for the most part money gets taxed several times so it's even worse than it appears. You get taxed for making it, spending it, and if you want to pass it on you get taxed then too. Social Security is about to be in a whole world of trouble. It's mostly due to the current people heading it being awfully selfish and unwilling to compromise basically it won't be around when most of us grow up. In addition to that the state of our international affairs has been so royally screwed up that the vast majority of the world thinks we're either incompetent bullies or hates us to their very core. The educational system in the country is in shambles and juvenile morality is at an all time low. Corruption is rampant among government projects with construction foremen taking millions upon millions of dollars and getting away with it.
Basically if I was the president I would find an intern and have sex with her in an effort to get impeached. If that failed I would then try again and again. If every effort to get thrown out of the oval office failed I would find the biggest bag of pretzels I possibly could and let myself choke on them.

1) The United States is in war with Iraq.

Frist off I believe in a world were all life even an ant has a spirit/soul and that as a human being of a higher understanding should do their best to help that life. . . I do not believe war is the answer in helping life. . . because in war the seeds of vengance and revenge are sown. ..Human lives are lost, all in the name of helping this one nation under God!!

IF I were president i'd obsolve the war effort. Instead of spending 12 billion a month on supplies of weapons, which are used to kill, i'd have 12 billion a month to spend else where. . .

I'd make sure private companies who are like Halliburton, building weapons of mass destruction had their money cut off from congress.

I'd also have a daily speech every night that would be broadcasted to the united states citizens, telling them my weakness for that day, and the agenda. . . I'd not hide my plans in secret in other words.

Also i'd legalize the cultivation of hemp if bill HR 1009 or HR 3037 got put on my office table. *Signed*

I'd legalize hemp as a product to produce bio-fuels for the coming shortage of oil. . .

I'd subside education so that more children had the ability to go to college, I'd split that 12 billion a month up 4 ways

1st) Educational spending for elementary - College levels (3 billion)
2nd) Research and Development into Nano-Bio-Technologies (3 Billion)
3rd) Research and Development into New Energy Technologies
4th) Reconstruction of US infilstructure

Gas prices are high. and they will keep being high sorry :(

Aids and cancer is affecting everyone and researchers need
money to find a cure. <--- I have learned that even with all the resources in the world you will not be able to save a life, but even with out the resources one may care and love the life.


NASA is spending a buttload of money to observe mars. <-- Excellent, if the citizens want i'll cut spending if nessary.

Meanwhile, you're the president of the United States and you have enough power to start more schools. I would not start more schools but i'd help subside the existing ones so that there will be so many brilliant minds appplying to be teachers that only the best of the best will be teachers and some of the poorest schools in the nation will get top of the line educations. . .

No need to raise minimum wage unless inflation is happening, and inflation is plus minimum wage is already going to be raise so i'd let this play out and not bother with it.

Select who you want to have in the supremee court (something ike that). <-- ok with this issue I have a plan.

A Plan to change the world's way of paying Taxes

I'd create a system where the tax payers of this country had a say in the Federal buget of the entire nation. . . That right i'd let you the people of this country help decided where all the money will be spent. ..

I'd have an online or analog way of allowing the tax payers to take their taxes and put them into 5 different catagories of where the money will honestly be spent.

1) Education Example: College - Pre School, Deaf Schools, Distance Educaiton systems, Online Education, Trade Schools, Institutes of TEchnology, anything Education based with local or state . .. .

2) Research and Development of new TEchnologies Examples: New Clean energy technologies, Solar, wind Technologies, Bio Technologies, Nano Technologies, Super capacitance Technologies.

3) WAR Effort (This is pretty straight forward and with this system in place if the people of this country want a war, by God they will have to pay for the War) I will not be a president to allow my own personal bias choices of having a war be with out some consequence of my people's choice, that is right I want the people of the country to show me they are ready to pay for a war instead of me choosing to just go to war.

4) Investment into US Inflistructure Example: Rebuilding on buildings, Energy plants, and helping keep maintance on old buildings, dams, bridges, air ports and the likes there of. . . old schools being rebuilt or expanded upon

5) Federal Agencies, DEA, FBI, CIA, NSA, you get the idea

Now this system would allow the people to have a large portion of the say in the country and I would love to have that happen if I were president. . .

WYCLEF JEAN LYRICS

"If I Was President"

[chorus]
If I was president,
I'd get elected on Friday, assasinated on Saturday,
and buried on Sunday.

If I was president...
If I was president

An old man told me, instead of spending billions on the war,
we can use some of that money, in the ghetto.
I know some so poor, they use the spring as the shower,
when screaming "fight the power".
That's when the vulture devoured

[chorus]
If I was president,
I'd get elected on Friday, assasinated on Saturday,
and buried on Sunday.

If I was president...
If I was president...
If I was president...
If I was president

But the radio won't play this.
They call this rebel music.
How can you refuse it, children of moses?

[chorus]
If I was president,
I'd get elected on Friday, assasinated on Saturday,
and buried on Sunday.

If I was president...
If i was president

Tell the children the truth, the truth.
Christopher Columbus didn't discover America.
Tell them the truth.
The truth
YEAH! Tell them about Marcus Garvey.
The truth YEAH! The truth.
Tell them about Martin Luther King.
Tell them the truth.
The Truth.
Tell them about JFK

If I was President
[chorus]
If I was president,
I'd get elected on Friday, assasinated on Saturday,
and buried on Sunday.

If I was president...
