Kyleigh's (Award Winning) Presidential Speech
Good morning, my name is Kyleigh Moore. A reason you should remember that name is because that's the name you will be checking off for president when I'm done. I am running under the political party known as the republicans. Me, my vice president Bradley Barbarisi and the rest of my political party have been working very hard to create this campaign in order to win your votes.
Before you decide to vote for me, you should get to know me first. I have formerly ran for two positions in student council, treasurer and vice president. Hoping that 3rd time is the charm. I volunteer over 400 hours at the Ossipee Recreation Department as a C.I.T watching children at the Summer Fun Club program. I am in several different clubs, Dj Club, Youth and Government and Model Congress. I am an active member in Kingswood Theater where I am currently participating in my fourth show. I play softball in the spring where I am currently on the JV team but hope to level to Varsity this year. I am an anchor on Knightly News, Monday-Friday at 10:26. I have a seasonal job at Route 16 Dairy Bar in Ossipee. Not to mention I'm a dog person.... As I am aware I have the 45th highest GPA in our grade. Since not all of us can be 1st or 2nd in our class, I'd like to remind you that we need someone average but extraordinary, where I currently fill both of those categories. We need someone who will be active with everyone, someone who knows how the system works.
As for my Issues... Marijuana should continued to be illegal. Marijuana is a drug, as abuse-able as any intoxicant is, and its long-term use is in some people associated with undesirable effects. If we legalize this drug because of it's consent use, we will eventually have to legalize all drugs. The government is here to protect all citizens and we must do what it takes to maintain a healthy country. I understand that the use of marijuana will still continue with or without the consent of the government, but we can try to restrict import and export of the drug, and enforce our current state laws on the use. As for Abortion we should be a Pro-Life country. Since life starts at conception, abortion is considered to be murder. If the child is unwanted the government will take care of all adoption requirements. We as republicans support a human life and endorse legislation to make it clear that the 14th amendment applies and protects any unborn child. We oppose that people should have the choice of giving the chance for a child to live or not. And as for gun control, we must protect the second amendment, which states all citizens have the right to bare arms. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. If we restrict people of purchasing guns and ammo, people will find ways to require weapons anyhow. Legalizing gun control would only make more sense for the average person to be able to defend themselves against enemies. Furthermore, I believe I should be your president, not just because I'm incredibly well rounded, but because I know what's best for our country. I'm ready to take responsibility for America as your new president
As Mitt Romney said, “Leadership is about taking responsibility, not making excuses.”
Thank you and happy voting.
