Why Amy Poehler Is the President the United States Really Needs

Because bitches get stuff done.

Let's face it, the Presidential election has got everyone feeling like Britney Spears in 2007. Stressed, depressed, and not so well dressed. Our country is in need of a true leader, so forget Clinton and Trump. If we all are willing to be truly honest with ourselves, we can admit that the only person for the job is our very own Amy Poehler. Here are a few reasons why she is the only one who can truly "Make America Great Again".

We all know and love Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation, her multiple personalities portrayed on SNL, her countless films, and New York Times Best Seller books. Her ability to play characters, especially through Leslie Knope, who is completely invested in being the best political servant she can be shows her credibility and should prove to us already that she would be an incredible President.

Amy Poehler doesn't let anyone push her around, which leads me to my next point in that she would not only stand up for herself while in Office but be a voice and an advocate to people everywhere as our next President.

She understands that sometimes, you just need to let your freak flag fly, and nothing says that better than a little break dancing which she proves to be the best at (just like she would be the best President... coincidence?)

Amy Poehler is fully aware of her own self-worth. Her confidence is off the charts and knows that she is the best at everything that she does.

This is what Amy would have to say for anyone doubting that a woman could make a good President for whatever idiotic reasons they believe to be true.

I think we can all agree as a country that Amy Poehler has already proven just by being her amazing self that she is not only the President that America wants, but the President that America needs... and let's not forget about VP Tina Fey. Why? Because...

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads


I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!
