The Electric President

The first woman president of the United States had ended her term of office in the year 2876. Having failed to deliver on her election promises a robot president was elected to office for the first time in history.

A red light blinked and the electric president spoke:
‘My fellow Americans, I said I would put an end to global conflicts and the destruction of the environment and it will be accomplished. The billion-strong Robot Protection Force, the greatest army the world has ever seen, was deployed the instant I took office. Projections have determined that resistance by die-hards will be eliminated within a period of two weeks. As always we prefer cooperation to annihilation and the surrender of opposers to the UN Global Peace Resolution will always be welcomed.

As I speak all offending entities to the UN resolution to halt the further despoiling of Earth are being brought into submission. Projections indicate that within a month planetary recovery by Nano’s and other robots will be finished. We can all look forward to a much brighter future from now on.

My thanks to our allies for their contributions.

End Speech.’

This is a work of fiction and any resemblance to any persons living or dead is purely coincidental.


  1. It took 800 years for a woman to be President in the US? Ouch.

    If those bots could fix the problems in a month, they would have been unleashed soon after their creation! Perhaps this is all a dream of the builder of the first nanobots!

  2. It took a while to iron out the bugs that would have resulted in the grey goo?
    Good point!
