If I were elected President of the United States of America, I would prevent slavery all over the world! I would also try to stop people from selling cigarettes and using them.

I would talk only about what is right and good. I would say to the people that I really care for them and their families! I would ask them to tell others my story. If I tell them that we are going to war or anything else, I would ask them to pass it on.

I would talk to people around the world that do not have homes. If I could, I would go to every orphanage and talk to the children. I would not ever, ever, ever, ever kill one single human being, I promise with my whole heart.

I would ask people if I can have their autograph and make them feel special and like they are wanted. And if they wanted my autograph, I would give it to them! I would suggest some songs to some singers (in a letter) when I think of them. I would say at the bottom of the letter that it's their choice if they want to sing them or not, and it would probably be Christian music. It wouldn't really be a letter, it would be a song letter.

I would try to use my own money and buy books for schools that don't have any. I would try to teach some children to use manners at the table at school, and I will leave the manners at home for their parents. I would not let the people down, I promise with all my heart.
