So What Are The President's Roles?

Commander-in-Chief: The president’s role as the commander-in-chief of the U.S. is to give orders to armed forces. All leaders of the military listen to the president's commands. For example he tells the troops where they need to be and when they can come home or need to go serve.


Chief Executive: As the Chief Executive the president gives laws and helps carry out the laws and the news of what is going on in the nation. For example he gives executive orders given to him by the second Article carried out by police officers or any other departments to uphold the law.


Chief of State: The president, as chief of state represents the U.S, he is supposed to promote the values we have and represent them as well. For example giving speeches to cities in distress like Bush did in 9/11.


Chief Diplomat: As Chief Diplomat, the president interacts with other nations and develops policies with those nations. For example having nation's leader visit the white house or going to a different nation for a meeting with their leader.


Chief Legislator: The president makes speeches on what he plans to do and meets with congress to make sure some of his policies are made into laws. For example the president can threaten not to pass any other laws they make if one of his policies don’t make it through, he can also help make amendments to the bill so he can get it passed.


Party Leader: The president represents his party and to thank the others that got him there he can give members of his party some important jobs to make sure that when the next president takes over their are people from his party still in office. He can use his party to get reelected for a second term. For example president Obama is going to try to fill the open judicial chair with someone of his party so that it tilts more to his side.

Solutions To Current Issues

As president I would try to get marijuana legalized for medical use only. Medical marijuana is used for pain and cancer treatments or symptoms. We can use police to help enforce the use for only medical purposes after it becomes a law.

Who: Medical patients who use it to help themselves in everyday life

What: Legalizing marijuana in the united states for medical uses

Where: the United States of America

When: Current...

Why: It should be legalized everywhere so we can take huge tax cuts from them and help patients who need it to help with excruciating pain and cancer symptoms after therapies.
