My first 100 days in office

IMG_0196-001Not being elected to anything, here are some things I currently support as an ambassador of the Kingdom of  God while living in the world as a simple citizen of  the United States.

But, with apologies to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, I offer the following goals to begin to implement in the first 100 days of my presidency if  I were  honored to be elected president of the United States.  (These ideas come from the top of my head and the bottom of my heart)

I

As the Commander in Chief I would immediately begin

  • to work with the secretaries of defense, army, navy and air force and the congress to change the strategy of the defense department from destroying enemies by making friends,
  • hoesI would arm military forces with simple tools like hoes to be used to make friends with collateral benefits for all.

II

As the Chief Executive

  • I would work with congress and the representatives to the  UN to remove all sanctions imposed on rogue nations,
  • I would work to allow immigrants and commerce to cross  all borders without restriction, and if there were walls, I would break them down and build bridges instead.

III

As the head of a political party I would work with the congress and the states

  • to revise election laws,
  • to shorten the campaign season,
  • take corporate money out of politics,
  • consider all residents registered with the right to vote,
  • give  third party candidates equal voice in debates.

popeIV

As a person with influence

  • I would work for a world-wide living wage, health care for all and college level educations for all the earth’s residents,
  • cooperate with all other nations to care for the earth’s environment.

 

There’s no greater call
than ambassador of peace
my Father told me

About Martin Lehman

I was born 92 years ago, the son of a Mennonite pastor and organic gardener in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. At age 10 I was baptized as a member of the Marion Mennonite Church. I own the "Old Fool" moniker because I want to walk the Jesus Way even though the world and much of the church takes me as a fool for doing so. In my life I have moved from being a young conservative to an elderly radical. I tell that story in My Faith Journey posted on my website.

    Ah, looking back I read”begin to implement.” I should have known you wouldn’t name what you couldn’t do!
