Running for President

My fellow Americans, as you all may
know, I am running for president this year. This presidential election is
unlike any other election held in the United State before because of three
reasons. First, it is different from the rest because I am running for
president this year. Second, there is a greater chance of there being a
Hispanic president being elected for the first time in America’s history.
Third, more and more people have started to express their right to vote,
especially the younger generations. Before I begin to explain why I am running
for president or state where I stand, let me say a few words first. Become a
maverick. Now before anyone says something, let me define the word maverick.
Maverick is defined as an independent individual who thinks and acts in an independent
way. This means that we should have some characteristics of both free spirit
and originality. Now I am not saying that these ideas should control your life
or anything but better yet, they should be foundations to help you as an
individual and to later in the future help others and eventually our country. Not
thinking independent but thinking original to create a bigger impact on society.

There have been many great
presidents of the United States that have gotten elected and made historic
changes to this country. Presidents like Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt,
and Franklin D. Roosevelt all made history with their decisions and actions as
president. So, why do I want to run for president? Well some might want to run
for president because it has nice perks, good prestige, and a well payed
salary. However, these reasons are only secondary, no tertiary to me. The
reason I want to run for president is mainly because I want to make a greater
impact on our country that no one has ever done before. For starters letting
the people of this country know my campaign slogan which is become a
maverick.  Another reason, which is just
as important, why I want to run for president is because I feel that I would
make a more of an impact as president to carry out my ideas and the ideas of
the people instead of just voting to see if another president will have my same
ideas and inspiration that I have. Throughout the course of history there have
been some serious issues that certain presidents have confronted. The issues
that I want to focus on as president are the availability and affordability of
health care, future terrorist attacks, hunger and homelessness, and illegal
immigration. The specific policies that I would also like to focus on are
holiday bonuses in jobs, and making abortion illegal. Other issue and policies
that I might or might not mention are also going to be taking into
consideration, but these are the ones that I want to mainly focus on.

The first issue that I would like
to talk about is the availability and affordability of health care. As most of
you may already know, the Affordable Care Act or ACA is an act that was
supposed to fix this health care problem. However, its design to make insurance
affordable for people with low incomes just isn’t enough. Many people of this
country are unemployed and some of those who are employed don’t make enough to
afforded health care. My proposal is that we should maintain the Affordable
Care Act but change a few things. For starters, I would keep the requirement
that every American need to have health insurance or they will be penalized. I believe
that this requirement is important because everyone should have more than I way
to pay for health care. What I was thinking of proposing was taxing for health
care. Now I know that there are some taxes being deducted from your hard-working
salaries such as federal income tax, social security tax, and Medicare tax, but
this tax is one that will benefit mostly those that can’t afford health care.
You basically only pay for two hours of work per month to have health care. If
you make seven dollars an hour at your job you pay fourteen dollars a month
which is eventually about one hundred and seventy dollars a year. Now there are
some catches to this plan, for example if you work over time you might have pay
a little bit more, like bout ten percent for every overtime hour. What about
the people who make more money than the ones who can’t afford it? If you take
someone for example who makes let’s say twenty dollars an hour and do the math,
this person would pay forty dollars a month or four hundred and eighty dollars
a year which is much more than the one who would have payed less. This is where
the second part of the plan comes into place. Those who make more than twice
the minimum wage of their area don’t have to take part in this plan and can
keep on doing the regular way of paying for health care. Those who make more
than minimum wage but not as much who make twice as much can choose which part
of the plan they want. This idea is intended to help more of those people who
can’t currently afford health care. Now I know that this is a lot to take in
but once you speak with one of our service attendant, they will explain the
plan in much greater detail and recommend what course of action is better to
take. Once again, I would like to say become a maverick. Once you are mentally
prepared, you can achieve greater levels that you would have never known you
could reached. Another issue that I would like to address is the issue of a
potential future terrorist attack. Terrorist attacks occur not only in the
United States, but also in other parts of the world, such as in France, Italy,
Romania, and Sweden to name a few. To start on this topic, I would like to
define the word terrorism to give you all a better understanding of what it is.
Not on what you see on the news but in the dictionary. Terrorism is defined as
the unlawful use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of personal aims. The most
recent terrorist attacks have created a racial tension between the Muslim
community and everyday citizens. Many people think that if you look Muslim you
are a terrorist, but that is not the case. Not all Muslims are terrorists, just
like not all people are naturally good at swimming. This issue of terrorism has
created a lot of panic in our country. The only solution that I have currently
come up with is to improve security everywhere especially where there is a lot of
people, such as at an airport and concert. Security officials should be alert always
and should be more in numbers in these populated places. Of course, you should
not say things that could potentially cause harm to others like yelling bomb at
an airport. You should not do this not only because it is illegal but also
because it gives terrorists an opportunity to strike when officials are
distracted dealing with you false alarm when something real could be happening.

Let’s get off the topic of what
issues I want to fix for a little bit and focus on what specific policies I
would like to focus on. For starters, I would like to talk about holiday
bonuses given in jobs. One of the first things that I would make in to a law is
the mandatory of giving your employee a well-deserved bonus. What do you mean
by that? Well from what I have been hearing, some employees have been complaining
to their employers about holiday bonuses. The issue is that the employer,
instead of giving out a regular money bonus or something like a bonus to the
employee, is replacing the regular bonuses with employee discounts that aren’t
even worth it. These so-called discounts are only five percent off the
employee’s purchase. That doesn’t even cover enough for the taxes! I have heard
about your complaints and I am here to deliver. One of my first actions as
president will be to make bonuses worth looking forward to and not a
replacement that is almost worth nothing. Become a maverick and get your
well-deserved bonus. Now this mostly benefits the employee but then again, the
employee benefits the employer, so this plan will even out the playing field
and will give employees motivation to work hard again. Another policy that I
will carry out is making abortion illegal. I am against abortion and I believe
that life is one of the most important gifts someone can give or receive. I
believe that if a woman gets pregnant, she should accept her actions and accept
the responsibility of taking care of her child. Instead of abortion, look for a
better solution like putting your child up for abortion. The living child won’t
die and will be well taken care of specially trained individuals. Now this
adoption solution should be like a last resort and your decision should start
when you are about to do the deed. If you don’t want to get pregnant then the
best way is abstinence, according to health classes taught around the world. Every
human being has the right to live, since life starts at conception, unborn
babies have the right to life. How is your child supposed to become a maverick
if they aren’t given the chance to live? Again, I am against abortion and
believe it should be made illegal instead of its current position of being
legal.    

Continuing from the previous issues
I mentioned earlier, I would also like to focus on the issues of hunger and
homelessness and illegal immigration. Did you know that one out of every eight
Americans are at risk of hunger due to living on low incomes? Millions of
children rely on food banks to stay alive. Only about eleven percent of people
requesting emergency food assistance are homeless, which means that most people
requesting food assistance have low incomes. Let me quickly mention that I have
personally seen many people throw away substantial amounts of food at
restaurants and that makes the hunger issue even more sad. People will
literally order a plate, take a bite and throw it way. They don’t even bother
to ask for a to go plate to take their leftovers home to eat later. As
president, I will make this act illegal, with a penalty of a large fine. Of
course, this is only a minor solution to the problem. The main solution is to
build more food banks and to advocate for people to donate goods and to
volunteer for distribution and collection. We as a community need to let the
hungry know that they are not alone and that they shouldn’t give up hope. We
also need to spread the word that instead of buying food you won’t finish, you
should buy something you know you will finish, which is probably cheaper, and
donate the rest to the food bank to end hunger in America. You will be
satisfied both physically and morally. Another issue I wanted to talk about was
illegal immigration. This is one of the biggest issues the United States
currently has and I intend to try and solve it. Immigration should be legal because
most of us are immigrants if you go far back enough into history, so we should
give immigrants a chance to become citizens. Connecting back to health care, if
immigrants were to become citizens, that would benefit families by them being
able to access health care. Many undocumented immigrants don’t have health
insurance because they can’t afford it or because they don’t qualify to receive
it. That is why letting immigrants come to the United States is both beneficial
to the immigrants and to the country. The immigrates get a change to be covered
by health insurance and are also given the opportunity to find employment. The
country also benefits by getting an extra boost to its economy. Both will end
up receiving something beneficial if immigration was legal. With more
immigrants coming into the country, the more people there will be for them to
become a maverick. These issues that I have addressed are just the major ones
that I will spend my time on to fix. Also, the polices that I mentioned are one
of the first ones I intend to add and implement. This doesn’t mean that I won’t
try to fix other issues or focus on other polices. It just means that these are
the first ones I intend to fix and focus on. I also intend to put my attention
to other critical issues, but I will mention them in a future speech or debate.
The same goes for the polices that I intend to focus on. For now, these issues
and polices are the first ones to be addressed, so that I can quickly focus on
other ones that are on the waiting list.
