People Are Writing Their Own Executive Orders And They're Better Than Trump's

By Mark Pygas

A fun exercise would be for random people to be able to write executive orders and have their own power, if only for short periods of time.  It could accomplish a few things.  One would be to show people that the office of government is not that easy and things are not that cut and dry when it affects hundreds of millions of people, all who have different situations.  It also could lead to some pretty good ideas for government and bring common sense and empathy back into the picture.  The good could probably weigh the bad, even if to just get some of the common sense ideas out there.  Who knows, maybe some people in Washington could learn a thing or two from the common people that they were elected to serve.  Even though this will probably never be allowed to happen, and its probably for the best, it does not stop people from wondering what some of these things would look like.  Its always nice to dream and have some hope to look forward to, especially in some bleak political times.  

Donald Trump is known for signing a lot of executive orders. In his first 100 days, Trump signed 30 orders, the most of any president since World War II, according to a White House statement. By comparison, President Obama signed 19. 

As you can imagine, that's led to a lot of photos of President Trump holding up a sheet of paper, which on the Internet, is always a terrible idea. Thankfully for us, user hepwori on GitHub created an online generator where you can have President Trump sign your own executive order, and people are having a lot of fun with it.
