If I were president...

Here is what I would fix:

Daylight Saving Time.  We need to scrap the whole thing.  As the comedian Dave Barry says: "You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe Daylight Saving Time."  That being the case, I propose we get rid of it.

Protecting Thanksgiving.  By presidential order I would outlaw shopping on Thanksgiving.  This may not make me popular, but we've got to hold the line somewhere.  I don't think this is what Abraham Lincoln had in mind when he declared Thanksgiving a national holiday.

That's it. That's all I've got.  It may not be an exciting platform, but it's simple and you'll know after four years whether I accomplished it or not.  In fact, I can't imagine these two things taking more than four years, so I expect that I won't run for a second term.

Oh, and one last thing.  I'm not eligible until the 2020 election, so save your write-in votes until then.
