During my presidency I noticed something that I couldn’t quite understand. I noticed a massive range of businesses who controlled such a high quantity of manufacturing from things like railroads, oil, and even meat. With meat, for example, I sent out a friend of mine to a meat packing industry. His response letter back painted a horrible picture. He saw that dead animals thrown aside and lighting conditions were terrible. Yet with these terrible conditions, the investors of these companies are doing extremely well. This needed to be changed, I couldn’t outright eliminate these companies, but instead control their actions. These monopolies can’t be good for America. In reaction to that, I’ve enlisted many antitrust acts to break up these giant superpowers. A notable one was the Standard Oil Trust. We were able separate the conglomerate that was Standard Oil, into much small companies. This way there was no longer one massive force controlling simply one object.

During my presidency our country was one of its worst points: The Great Depression. The economy was downtrodden and jobs for the average American was an adventure in and of itself. So when I became president I proposed a “New Deal” of sorts for my fellow American citizens. First I started the Civilian Conservation Corps and Works Progress Administration to somehow bring life into America and get this economy back to what it was. But that wasn’t enough to save the American people from where they were. I also created the Wagner Act and Fair Labor Standards Act to instill more organized labor into America with things like minimum wage.
In presidency, I noticed that American companies have made a major mistake. In recent years, they’ve outsourced their work to foreign countries such as China. Well why? Well I think we’ve all figured out by now, it’s simply because it is cheaper to give the jobs to foreigners who well work for much cheaper. This needs to stop. Today in America, Americans are struggling to find jobs in a economy trying to come out of a recession. To solve I propose this to American companies who outsource, bring the jobs back to America! American companies should have American workers shouldn’t they? Instead of focusing more on a profit, American companies should focus on advancing the economy back to it’s majesty. Outsourcing isn’t going to be thing that gets America out of this recession.
1. Explain your choice and presentation format.
- I chose a monologue format because I was working alone and wanted to just represent myself as the three presidents in a sort sequential order.
2. Answer essential question.
- I think it takes a serious injustice in the eyes of the individual in to create lasting change within a system. When someone as powerful as the president himself sees great injustices, he has everything in his powerful to see this change come through.
