I plan to create partnerships with agricultural industries and volunteers to plant over 1 billion fruit trees all over the United States for environmental reasons, as well as provide the food to feed all the poor children of the world to stop global hunger. In addition, I will be authorizing the expenditures of approximately 5 trillion dollars for roads, highways, freeways, mass transit, Monorails, trains, new major highways along with millions of charging sites for all electric vehicles, however, gas vehicles will not be restricted in any way (other than existing emission standards which have proven to amply protect the environment), as competition and private industry can create the incentive for the creation of any energy source that may one day supersede the need for combustion engine technology.
I will also be building complete cities all over the United States and I will give all families who want to buy a business, For example McDonalds, pioneer chicken, etc. My Universities will teach economics along with scientists, doctors, dentists, etc.
Now one of my ideas which I am very proud of I will make sure all senior citizens will be getting a bump in their benefits. I plan to make sure all seniors will be receiving 3500 dollars a month in benefits, in addition to dental and medical.
All people over 18 years old will receive a one-time payment of 40,000 dollars in a single check to assist in getting a first mortgage, first business, or payment of other needs that don’t go to recreation or alcohol. Also all parents who are pregnant will get 12 months of maternity leave paid for by the Maternity Act from the family values fund of 10 trillion dollars, tax-free. Finally, taxes will be minimal and simple, with the first 50,000 dollars of income tax-free, and a flat tax that will take care of everyone above that amount of about 10 to 12%.
Thank you for reading the op-eds, and remember: We can DO this if we put our mind to it! So much more to come down the road, but the last three days should give you much to think about for now.
