I Like to Dream Big

When I was a kid I used to tell people, every one I came across, that I was going to be the first female president. Of course, I was also going to be a doctor, pediatrician, veterinarian, and a lawyer. I wanted to do it all, and I was convinced that I could.

At some point I changed my mind.  I think it might have been all the time I would have to spend in school.  Once I hit high school I was over the whole school thing.  Now I want to be a best selling author, pastry chef, bakery owner, computer technician (with a compute repair shop), and a health nut/health and fitness instructor.  I have always wanted to do more than an average day would allow me, but there are moments where I really think I can do all I want.  I will always believe I can do everything on my to do list.

Even though my dreams changed at some point (except being a writer, I started as a story teller) it didn’t stop me from dreaming and imagining what it would be like to be president.  Not exactly what it would be like, but what I would do if I was in the position.  I get so angry about things in the world that I can’t help but to imagine all the things I would change.

I will just name a few things, and please, no hate.  I know how things work, but that doesn’t stop me from dreaming and pretending I live in a different world.

If I was president, the first thing I would do would implement solar roadways.  Construction would start immediatly.  Don’t know what that is?  Take a look at the video, it’s really worth the few minutes.

It’s so amazing! Seriously, why have we not done this yet?  They even had a fund raiser that brought in 2 million dollars.  Let’s see this happen folks!

The second thing I would do would be to change the prisons. We have so many prisoners now days.  And I fear that it is because life in prison is so much easier then in the real world.  Prisoners have television, junk food, a promise of three meals a day, and a place to put their head at night.  Sure other things go on in prison that we don’t want to talk about, but it doesn’t seem to stop the people that are locked up time after time for the same dumb stuff.

I say we take away the television and junk food.  They still get three meals, but nothing fancy (which I am sure it’s not fancy now). While they are outside, make it like a gym class.  They all do the same stretches and work out and they won’t have time to sit around and talk.  Meals should be eaten in silence.  Let’s give the prisoners A.C. and heat, but just to the point where they are not sweating or freezing to death.

Prison should be hard and discourage someone from doing what they did all over again.

The third thing I would do as president is take the money I would save from taking things away from prison and put it into helping the homeless.  Homeless shelters and half way houses.  Now, it wouldn’t just be homeless shelters were people can just hang out and not care.  There would be rules and all that, but that would be a whole post worth of  things I would do.

I would also put more of that money into schools.  Of course, after the solar roadways are in place and in use, there would be a ton more money sitting around to go to other things that are more worth while then paving over the same road a million times.

I know that I will never be president, unless I get some unnatural following and everyone writes me in when they vote.  I also have no idea how the whole political world works because I just can’t deal with drama and that seems to be all it is…drama.  I left drama back in high school and I don’t feel like getting back into it.

So what would you do?  If you found yourself in charge of a country or even the world, what would be your first task?
