Get your facts straight first before you post Mr Rick. The US of A was built by Americans.. and not by foreigners. The sooner everyone realizes that the better off we all shall be.

Plus those babies are brown. So they are not really “true" Americans.

By a long shot.

A monster who quotes the Bible to support his immorality: Sessions invokes the Bible to defend separation of families at the border- the Hill. Clearly he was stung by clerical criticism of his policy. The devil quotes the Bible, Doncha know. What a sick Bayard

Ken, you almost had that right. In Sessions' warped view, they're not quite human...

Trump says he wants Americans to respect him like North Koreans respect KJU



It's never gonna happen, not even on pain of death.

After all this is over, I wonder if we should make a constitutional amendment that says to run for President you have to have been the Governor of a state for two terms. That would eliminate a lot of the unqualified people. I say two terms because you had to be reelected once. If you were a total doofus you would fail to get reelected.

That way, the voters would at least have some indication if you were insane or incompetent. They would still be free to elect George Wallace or Gerry Brown, so I don't think it's too restrictive. We could add other ways to qualify, like serving as a four-star general for eight years, if you want to consider people like Eisenhower.

And no, I'm not worried about the Asa Hutchinson's of this country. Even if they were popular in their own hellhole state, everyone else would be able to see what two terms as Governor did to the place.

"... make a constitutional amendment that says to run for President you have to have been the Governor of a state for two terms."

On its face not a bad idea, but like any amendment there should be much discussion, political and private, about the idea.

Initial Cons: Past presidents that would not have been, if this was part of the Constitution from the beginning - George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D Roosevelt, Barack Obama to just name a few.

Initial Pros: President Donald (DICKtator wannabe) Trump would not be.

But those men may well have been President with this amendment because they would have served as governor before running for President. Right now, any popular idiot who is 35, has lived here for 14 years, and is natural born can run. This would create an occupational path. Lots of occupations have career paths.
