If you were president...

What would be the first thing you would do? How would you gain support for your actions? This does not have to be about fixing the economy either. The first thing I would do is ban smoking and gain support by sharing the stats of smoking. This link is to wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoking#Social_effects_and_demographics It explains some of the basic effects of smoking. And the fact that is practiced by, at most, 1/3 of the adult population is a huge fact. And then there is second-hand smoking also. Check out the wkipedia article here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_hand_smoking Anyways, that would be one of my top priorities if I was president or if I had enough power. What would you do and why? Support your actions with logical and reasonable reasons.

I would definitely support that! But that would be very hard to do in today's world. It always has been, it still is, and the future generations will decide if it will always stay that way. But I love the positive thinking! Happy mylotting!

I am from India. I dont like the Most of Politician's activities, especially the "Pribe" Because in India, the Cuture of "PRIBE" is more in most of the Government offices and also in the politicians offices. If i get the rule, i will just through away the people those who are involved in these activities.. I don't want any explantions in this issue, if i found that any one involved in this activities, i just send them out, and also, i will cease all the property pertaining to the person and also to their dependents, then only, he will not be make any further problem to the people and also will not distrub the others by using his fluency/power/money. From the Top post to the level of Peon, i will adopt the same.. and also i will cease the property of the all the politicians, those who are earned out of the other ways, and bring the same to the government account, and i will reduce the cost of the goods manufacturing in the country, and give the employment to the right people, and also appoint all the politicians as educated.. You can find the most of the M.L.A and the M.Ps are in the parliments by wearing the Jeans and T shirts at the age group of 20 to 40. At this case, the India become very young.. If the ruller of the country will adopt this, the future of India will become very bright. Have a good day..

I think if your rulers are wearing casual clothes, like you and me, then they should be replaced with people that are more experienced and more educated. I think what you have planned for your country is right for the most part. I do not know the situation in India right now, so I hope it gets better for all of us. Happy mylotting!
