How should I go about becoming President? (serious question)?
Question by Phil J: How should I go about becoming President? (serious question)?
I’m generally a pretty complacent person, but there is a lot of corruption, greed, and inequality in the world. Only those with power have the ability to change it. While my question is straightforward (what do I need to do to run for Pres?), I want the Yahoo Community to know why…
If I were president….
-Circuses would be outlawed. They are incredibly cruel to animals.
-Zoos would be no longer allowed to take animals from the wild. Also, all zoos would have to expand their exhibits. Sorry, but I would not want to be stuck in my apartment for the rest of my life. (800 square feet seems to be the average size of an exhibit. depending on the animal)
-Magazines would not be allowed to airbrush. That’s not going against the freedom of the press. For example, if Clinique wants to advertise their new foundation…Show what it actually looks like on REAL skin. Sorry. We all have pores. Airbrushing I think, contributes to FALSE ADVERTISING!
-Hate crimes would have a larger penalty. For example, if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle or religion, you have the right to disagree. You have NO RIGHT to abuse that person because of it.
-Marijuana would be legal.
-Tax deductions would be made for people who use alternative transportation.
-Tax deductions would also be made to people who go to the gym and live a healthy lifestyle.
-Employers (that have the ability to afford it. no faking audits!) would have to pay health insurance to their employees. If someone devotes a third of their day to you, you have to take of their well-being!
-Discrimination against someone because of their gender/religion/sexual orientation would also be illegal and punished harshly. If someone can do their job and try their best and be honest….Does it really matter if they aren’t a white male. (nothing against white males. but they are politically and socially dominant right now)
-Sunscreen would made cheaper.
-Tanning beds would be taxed.
-Organic farming…ONLY! There is just no reason of genetically altered crops. Europe has only organic foods and I don’t hear about Europeans having problems.
-Rape in movies would not be sexualized. I guess this might be infringing on “freedom of expression”, but I don’t see how making rape sexy is positive in any way.
-STD testing would be free.
I know you probably agree with my platform because it involves a little something called LOGIC, so please, help me! thanks.

You can do a lot at the community level. Start small. If you are presidential material you will rise up quickly.
