I wouldn't want to be a president. I would rather be an absolutist monarch. A president goes away no matter if he performs good or bad. As a monarch if I do good I'm there for life. :D

Of course, you'd have to be careful about how long that life was. :-)

As a President of the USA I would break tradition by actually abiding by the Constitution in my conduct of the Office. I would seek to restore honor to the Office of the Presidency and make the nation fully aware of the insults that the Presidency has suffered at the hands of both Democratic and Republican presidents.

Excellent answer, however I would NEVER want to be President. I would not want to be in charge of greatest country in the world, because it's a HUGE responsibility, and running a big family is hard enough minus 300 million people :)

I guess you like civil war :) I'm NDN, and I doubt most nations would take their original land back. Too little, too late.

Why would anyone want to be President of the US? I'd much rather be a monarch with some real power, or the head of a feudal system like the one which presided over the island of Sark until recently. Could be a dictator of course, but a nice one, not a chavvy one like Kim Jong Un.

If I were ruler of the UK I would make the North of England independent; at the moment we have an extremist Government who only care about London and the South-East. Down with Westminster, up with the North, I say! :D

But realistically, a little more funding would be nice. We're still using forty year old trains, whilst the people in the South complain when their trains reach ten years old! Honestly, get a life.

If I were President I would attempt to fortify the southern border of the USA. Our southern border is a dangerous place with all the kidnappings, human trafficking and such. The American people deserve something better than the present situation.

I don't really know if I want to be a president of any country, but if I had power to set the laws, I would start to ban the things which doesn't have any sense in life from my point of view.
Here is a small list to start with:
- most weapons (some cold weapons like pike or sword could stay)
- personal cars
- putting small portions of food in plastic packages (plastic, plastic, it's everywhere!)
- cutting down the trees

Regarding social and political life I would avoid stupid military invasions and recommend the other presidents not to stick their nose in the culture and life of other tribes, everyone must look at his own surrounding.
