If I were elected President of the United States of America I would make a law for no drugs or harmful weapons. If people do drugs, they will have to go to jail and pay a big fine. I will help the poor by giving them money, food, and shelter.

I would give money to the states that need it. I would donate supplies like scissors, paper, pencils, crayons, TVs, computers, and desks to schools.

If I were President I would listen to the people that have good ideas for our country. I would be as kind and giving as I could be. Children in orphanages would find nice families to live with.

Something else I would do is help the people of Iraq by giving them food and things they can live on. I would also help the soldiers come home to see their families.

Last, but not least, I would make a national holiday for chocolate chip cookie dough!
