Many kids dream of being president or queen but non or few realize the responsibilities that such titles would entail. As kids in school we were often asked “If you were president for a day, what would you do?” Some of my answers have changed while others have remained the same.
If I was President of the United States there are many things I would change. I would make drug testing mandatory on a weekly basis for those citizens receiving assistance from the state and government. I would change or abolish the “No Child Left Behind” law. If I change it, I would lower the standards to a more realistic number. I would also raise the driving age to 18 and the legal drinking age to 25. In order to increase jobs, I would make it illegal to pump your own gas in all states. I would also give teachers, firefighters, police, and all other government employees who don’t get paid or recognized enough raises and better benefits. On the border issue, I would reinforce the borders to where it was almost impossible to illegally cross over but make the benefits of crossing legally worth it so that more people would see it as better to come across that way. I would also raise minimum wage and lower taxes thus increasing the economy.
Those are just some of the things that I would do if I was President of the United States of America!
