Where's George - Kids need the Money

This past thanksgiving on my way to visit relatives in Austin, I received a dollar bill that had some writing in red ink on it. The wrting had been stamped on the dollar bill and said that this dollar was part of something called the currency tracking program. The dollar also had a website to visit called www.wheresgeorge.com. Apparently, some people created this fun project to track currency as it moved from place to place.

I know you might be asking yourself, "So what does this have to do with being President?"

Well, I was thinking that if we gave the youth of America their own dollar bill to track we could reduce crime. I have heard politicians say that we need to get kids off the street. If we can give kids enough dollar bills to track, then they would stay inside tracking their money, instead of being out and about getting into trouble.

If I were President I would give every child under the age of 18 one hundred dollar bills to track. I know that adds up to a lot of money. So let's take a look at the numbers.

There are around 70 million children under the age of 18 in the United States.

If you gave each of them $100.00, then you are talking about distributing 7 billion dollars.

Where in the world would I get seven billion dollars?

The United States gives out $13.3 billion tax dollars in direct Foreign Aid annually. The United States is also the single most generous benefactor of the United Nations, donating $2.4 billion dollars to primarily third-world dictators. In fact, most of the money the United States gives out winds out in the hands of dictators and terrorist. So instead of giving money to the terrorist and dictators, we will give it to it kids in our country to spend and to track. This would lower crime and give our economy a boost. At the same time it would cut down on the amount of money the terrorist recieved. It's a win-win-win situation.

This is truely a perfect plan. If I were President, I would give every kid in America one hundred dollars.

That will be bound to give me the under 18 vote!

Too bad they can't vote...
