If all wishes were horses, then I would wish to be the president of the United States. My wishes to be the United States president are not centered on egocentric but on the need to make America a better place for generations to come. While we are superpowers in the eyes of the world, I believe there are things that must be changed to reflect the fame and superiority associated with America in the international arena. If I were a president, I would strive to accomplish three major issues. To begin with, to ensure food security and better health care, second, would improve the education system of our country, third, I would ensure that our every American is secure.I have to admit that a government which is not able to feed its citizens has no reason of being in power. A healthy nation is very vital in sustainable development since a nation cannot develop when the citizen continuously suffer from different diseases. As stated above, my first task is to strive to enhance food security in my country. According to Mwaniki (‘n.d’), food security is a situation in which all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to adequate, safe and healthful food to meet their dietetic needs and food preferences for active strong life(1). Having minded the challenge it offers. There is need for targeted food security interventions, including food support in the form of direct food relief, food stamps, or indirectly through subsidized food production. Most of the farmers in the rural areas are poor and therefore cannot manage to purchase heavy machines for mechanization. As the president I strive for the introduction of Rural off farm opportunities to enable even the poorest people to engage in and provide additional food supply. This mechanism will even provide financial assistance for the farmers, processing firms to be introduced in these places. This mechanism provides alternative sources of food and change in feeding habits. Another important aspect that is needed is facilitation of market access. To achieve this, I intend to ensure good governance. This plays an integral part in implementation of this intervention. Without good governance, the strategies cannot be fully implemented due to problems for instance corruption. In essence, where there is sufficient supply of food, the nation becomes healthy hence rapid economic growth. These policies aim to ensure food security by providing adequate dietary intake for all households without exposing them to excessive risks in attaining that intake (Braun, Bouis, Kumar, Lorch, 6).
Ensuring substantial education for all citizens is the foundation of the rationality of a particular community. A learned society is easy to govern compared to a society full of ignorant individuals. To improve our education system, I have considered the following measures; Training colleges for teachers must be restructured to more extensive teaching mechanisms. This intends to have more qualified and motivated teachers. This I intend to achieve to restore the dignity of institutions and the teaching profession. Free forum for teachers where teachers and students can exchange their ideas, experiences, and information must be adopted. This is to create a conducive atmosphere for learning. As the President I will give direction to execute some reforms in the curriculum and examination system. Since education should form the whole person, it should be made relevant to the lives of the citizens particularly the students. The system of education should be more pragmatic rather than being abstract and examination should not be geared towards obtaining grades and papers but towards achieving the whole personhood. Since the world is dynamic, there a need to introduce the use of information and communication technology system in our schools. This is to facilitate and enhance coordination among different departments in our schools. This requires installation of computer software as well as connectivity facilities. Lastly, everyone has a right to access to education and therefore I will ensure that no one is deprived of education. Even the minorities are to benefit fro this plans which also intends to offer free high school and college education to accommodate even the less fortunate.
Security is very significant to our country since we are faced with threats from terrorists and other militia groups. I therefore intend to ensure border patrol to establish substantial probability of dealing with the terrorists and to ensure that they do not get access into our country. Security within the border is also intended to prevent the illegal immigrants and further prevent smuggling of humans, drugs, and harmful substances into our country. Unprejudiced mix of personnel, technology, and boarder infrastructure, such as roads, lights, fences, and facilities are critical to expanding control over our borders (Bonner, 2003, 6). Since our economic grow depends on this aspect we have to make sure that our security personnel are well trained to read the signs of time. Reforms in the security agencies are also my plans to facilitate security within our boarders. It is not only security within our borders which paramount but also even in our adjusting environment. This includes our homes, places of work, and other public places to avoid in act of crime.
Food security and health services, education and security within our borders play an integral role in sustainable development and the general welfare of the people. To eliminate ignorance in people by improving the education system from a theoretical sense to a pragmatic one will help to improve the economy of the country. I believe with my natural feeling to lead this country can drive me on towards achieving these goals.
