One thing I would do is pass a law that would make all pet stores and animal adoption centers have all the animals' shots up to date and checked out for health before they can be sold.

Another thing I would do is lower all sales taxes at stores.

I would also try to get businesses to lower their prices on all toys.

Next thing I would do is pass a law that would require all animals that bite to be put away forever, and the bad ones put to sleep.

I would also try to get enough housing for the homeless.

One of the things I would do next is try to figure out a way to lower health care costs, especially for kids' glasses.

Another thing I would do is to make sure that all old people who can take care of animals and want one are able to get one or two for free.

One other thing I would do is give a kid with no parents five toys that they want.

There are probably more things I would do if I were elected President, but this is all I can think of, except for this one last thing, which is to create more holidays for more time with relatives.
