If I were elected President of the United States of America I would have three main goals. My first goal would be the answer to world peace. My second goal would be to stop poverty and hunger. My third goal would be to make the U.S. a better place for everyone to live.
My first action to solve world peace would be to find a common goal throughout the world. My next step to solve world peace would be to form an international peace pact between nations. My third and final step to world peace would be to eliminate all weapons of mass destruction. By doing all of these things we could save a lot of money because we would not need to use that money on wars against other nations. With the money we would save, most of it could be used to help stop Poverty and Hunger.
My second job as President would be to end Poverty and Hunger. By doing this we would not have so many homeless people in the U.S. With the money we would save from world peace we could build homes for almost every homeless person in America. We could also use the money to create more food banks and soup kitchens. Then we would set up training centers to help the poor and homeless become trained with practical skills. These are only a few different ideas that could help in the fight against Hunger and Poverty.
My third job, as President would be to make the United States of America a better place to live. My first step to make the U.S. a better place to live would be to make a couple days of the year "National Clean Up Your Country" days. On these days everyone would stop what they were doing and find some way to help make their country a better place to live. My second step would be to plant more trees and use less paper. By using less paper and replacing the old trees that we destroyed to get the paper. My third step would be to stop all pollution. These are a few ideas about how to make the U.S. a better place to live.
If I was elected president of the U.S. I would try my hardest to accomplish all three of my goals. I cannot accomplish these goals without help from every citizen of the U.S. These are just a few things that I would do if I were elected president of the United State of America. Thanks for taking time to listen to my speech.

If I was to become the next president of the United States, I would make several changes to not only benefit the people of our great country, but to also make this world a better place for future generations to live in. Being a devotee to many Democratic party policies, my presidency would follow a more liberal point of view. The first thing that I would do would be to pull as many troops out of Iraq as possible. I feel that the war in Iraq has done nothing to benefit Americans. It has just fueled more violence and controversy over a land that has not seen peace in centuries. I feel that we should not be at war at a time when we still can not support our own country's men, women, and children. Hundreds of thousands of our own people have nothing. They lack adequate shelter and money. I find it unethical to spend millions of dollars on war when we can't support the American people. The next policy that, I feel needs to be addressed is abortion. Although I feel that abortion is wrong, I feel that it should be the woman's right to chose what is right for her body. The first amendment of the constitution gives an American the right to freedom. Allowing a woman the freedom to choose for herself is in the best interest of the American people. I feel that if I became president and certain policies set by the Bush administration were changed, American would not only benefit but be a much safer and peaceful place to live.

If I were the president of the United States I would concentrate more on our economy, not the government of other countries. The president's job is to give the best possible solution to any problem that the United States faces. I would like to give the message to all terrorists that I'm not fooling around nor am I wasting any time to get rid of them. I would make sure every one over 16 who wants a job will get one that will fit their capability. If I were president, all schools would have to be at a good quality. They would have to be inspected at least once a year. If I were president, kids would have more of a say in things. I would lower the voting age, so kids could have their own opinion that counts. I would bring all the military men and women home from Iraq. We have done what we need to do, and there is no reason why American troops should be there any more. If I were president I would make more affordable health care, especially for the elderly. Many people die just because they have bad health care or no health care at all. If I were the president I would do what's right for the country. I would try hard to make America a better place to live. I would try my best to be a great president. If I were president I would be friendly and truthful. I wouldn't think of war as an answer if a conflict popped up like they always do between two different nations. I believe in peace. If I were the president of the United States of America, I would try to make everyone proud to be an American citizen.
