Ladies and gentlemen, citizens of the U.S. it is my honor to be a candidate in the race for office and to stand before you here today. Today, in the country, there are a multitude of issues that the country faces. One of the greatest issues is abortion and whether or not it should be allowed. Some believe that it should be a choice and others think that it is morally wrong. I strongly believe that it is a personal matter and should therefore be the individual decision of the women. After all, it is her body and she should do what she thinks is right. Beyond that, there is the argument of leave of absence and how long the mother can leave and get paid, if any. Some establishments allow their female employees to leave and get paid while staying at home and tending to the newborn. Many do not allow this. Many cannot guarantee the protection of the women’s position if she leaves to take care of the infant. Should I be elected, then I will put in place a new policy that all companies must provide all female workers with an appropriate amount of leave with pay.
Another issue that many disagree with is the immigration policy. Many countries in the world, have citizens living in dire situations where the qualities of their lives are horrific and the environment around them is downright deplorable. So, as a result, many people each year enter the United States legally and illegally. What we should do is allow them to stay here and help advance and benefit the country. We should make the citizenship process easier. However, we must also regulate the amount coming in. Those who are felons must not be allowed citizenship. This country was founded on immigrants. We must allow our immigrant friends citizenship in the country if they are willing to do the work needed and are able to be an asset to us. They must not live in turmoil and be held back in their country when they can do so much more for us in our safer country.
Finally, there is another issue that I feel I need to discuss. For a very long time throughout our nation’s history, we have always looked down on the homosexual population. Our ancestors made it illegal, immoral, and unacceptable. We have already made history and great progress in the matter. On June 26, 2015 the supreme court passed a law enabling homosexual couples to wed and become unionized in every state in the nation, but there is still more that we can do. I,during my term,will fight for equality for homosexuals. Homosexuals are not really different, they are just people with different views on relationships. Like many groups there are those who are evil or bad people, which is why many do not like them, I get this. However, I do not agree with this. Many of them are hardworking, honest, loving, good people with emotions and feelings., we should not hold these differences against them.Many citizens today of a great lack of respect and trust for the politicians in office. There is much corruption, subterfuge, duplicity, and deceit in our nation’s government. As one of my favorite people in history said, “The first chapter in the book of wisdom is honesty.” This man was our third president Thomas Jefferson. With us there is only the utmost of honesty, that is what the American citizens will get from us. So please I when you are voting, I urge you to deeply look at your options and contemplate how they will also affect the nation. You would want only the best for your friends, families, loved ones, and children, therefore the U.S. too. If you love this great land of ours, then vote for Ms. Merullo and I. We too want what is best for all.
