If I ran for President

My platform on Medium:
The number of people running for President of the United States increases by the day. Most of them have one thing in common: their proposals depend on Congress passing them. But we know that what is “promised” on the campaign trail becomes a lie after Congressional deals are made. 
I’m generally repulsed by such candidates. Telling voters “I am capable of getting my way in Congress, unlike all of my predecessors,” insults one’s intelligence. It’s wishful thinking. It’s silly. 
What Presidential candidates can and should do is announce what they will do with their power as President

4-minute read.
