Storyboard Text

  • Hello Carter, I come from the future! Give a president some advice please!
  • Okay Mr. President, let me tell you about my domestic policies. Many of my proposals to save the environment were not enacted, but there was a switch in the U.S to go for coal and not oil, this made the U.S less dependent on foreign oil. I promoted nuclear energy, which led to the Anti-Nuclear Energy Movement but then physicians told the public about the dangers of nuclear power, so I had to create the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 1980.  I also promoted conservation and research that led to the Energy Research and Development Administration and Solar Institute. I banned fluorocarbons in aerosol sprays, I expanded the national park systems and protected 103 million acres in Alaska. As in my economic issues, my policies made no progress concerning poverty. However, I bailed New York from bankruptcy. I increased the minimum wage by 50%, created 8 million jobs but the inflation kept rising, which led to a major recession.
  • Also, the Malaise speech was me telling the country that we have to pull it together to see the country through its energy problems, while never using the word malaise, and it became known as the “malaise speech.” In addition to this, internal conflicts with my cabinet were that there was so much disloyalty. I found out that they leaked information and that is why many people did no longer supported me. Plus, I went around the country and asked what I can do better as a president and was told that my cabinet was working for themselves and not for me. So a few days after my Malaise Speech, I fired my cabinet. Also, some changes that the Democratic and Republican parties underwent were that the rise of the New Right was settling, I wouldn't do anything about the energy crisis and I was the problem in the U.S.
  •  Also, as in my election campaign, my slogan was, "A Leader, For A Change." I was not known considering the other candidates who were. I campaigned a lot for my first term and won even though I was not that known. However, I lost badly to Ronald Reagan when I ran for my second term. The 1980 election signaled a defeat for liberalism as much as a victory for the New Right, led by Ronald Reagan. Reagan believed that government was not the solution to the nations problems, but that the government was the problem. My advice son, is that you push and strive for the best, and do not commit the same mistakes I made.
  • Thank you Carter!
  • Time machine, take me to my office in the present!
  • I now have all the advice I need to become the most successful president the U.S has ever had! Thank you $100 Time Machine!
  • The end.
