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
major 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 needs 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
large number 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 similar 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?
