Politics in the USA would look a little different if a cat was elected president.
With government campaigning filling our TV and computer screens, we could use a break from the political hullabaloo.
Every pet owner knows cats and dogs have distinct personality traits. Even humans tend to embrace a personality more akin to their pet than another species.
For better or worse, here are some changes the Unite States could see if a feline was inaugurated as POTUS.
1. Tax Breaks for Independent Companies
Because cats are not the best team players so they support flying solo.
2. Decreased Government Transparency
Because cats like to hide.
3. More Grants for New Projects
Because opening galas have ribbon cutting ceremonies, and cats love ribbons.
4. No Hunting Restrictions
Because cats are born hunters.
5. Stricter Sanitation Policies
Because cats are anal about cleanliness.
6. Increased Space Travel
7. More Environmental Funding
Because cats need trees to climb and prey to hunt.
8. Heightened Home Security Systems
Because looking like a scaredy cat is embarrassing.
9. Better City Planning
Because cats are strategists.
10. Less Foreign Aid
Because cats are independent.
Though a feline running a country seems far-fetched, it's not all that implausible. Counties and cities have long been electing animals into office. This year, a town in Washington had pets nominated for the entire board--including mayor.
We wouldn't have any complaints listening to Grumpy Cat during the State of the Union Address.
