    President signs bills into law and vetos others.

    President is commander in chief of military (though technically isn't supposed to DECLARE war on anyone as that is Congress's job).

    Meets with foreign dignitaries.

    Gives state of the union address.

    Appoints justices to the Supreme Court and appoints other Federal Judges.

    Appoints the cabinet members (Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of Agriculture, Secretary of the Interior, Attorney General, etc.---these people then head the Departments they represent, administering the laws and programs of that department.)

    Issues executive orders in times of crisis.

    Executes the laws of the United States (laws, treaties, court rulings).

    Upholds the Constitution.

    The CIA and FBI report to the president.

    When the Congress works together with the President, he can advance policies. When Congress and the President are at odds, the president tends to VETO much of the newly proposed laws and Congress isn't able to pass laws he tries to get going because there isn't enough support for them in Congress.

    Congress (not the president) has the power of the purse, and determines funding decisions and taxes. The president can VETO new taxes, but he cannot draft his own new taxes.

    I'm missing some stuff, but that is a lot of it.

    Qualifications:

    The president must be at least 35 years old, a natural-born citizen, and have lived in the United States at least 14 years.

    Job Description:

    The Constitution assigns the president two roles: chief executive of the federal government and Commander in Chief of the armed forces. As Commander in Chief, the president has the authority to send troops into combat, and is the only one who can decide whether to use nuclear weapons.

    As chief executive, he enforces laws, treaties, and court rulings; develops federal policies; prepares the national budget; and appoints federal officials. He also approves or vetoes acts of Congress and grants pardons.

    Ok......

    To protect and serve the people, not the other way around.

    OH AND TAXES SHOULD BE AND STAY LOW!

    It helps our economy thrive.

    I'm not saying NO taxes. Just not much.
