I'm not a Schwarzenegger fan by any means but I don't see anything wrong with a foreign-born president. Just because he wasn't born here doesn't mean he would be incapable of leading our country. Say what you want about the man but you can tell he loves this country...a lot more than a lot of American-born citizens I know, including myself.

That said, I would never vote for him in a million years!

I donno there is a thing called the constitution that you might not heard of, it states no foriegn born people can be president... but then again the site i linked you to above is only facts.. then again you can swing that either way considering AJ states over and over and over again he is not a liberal and or conservitive, he is not republican nor democratic.. so either way you swing this I dont care..

We have a constitution for a reason, and in most cases its for people like this fasist freaks who think they can get over on people, but i see it will work well here...

Americans = sheep...

Foreign-born Presidents?


NO

HELL NO

Did I mention? HELL #ING NO

This country is already owned enough by foreign interests, let alone having one as president.


There is an express reason for that rule being in the Constitution....

Article 2 Clause 5 of the US Constitution States: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.


This is the part of the constitution we are talking about, maybe some should read it before typing what they think.

Which means...(just to clarify for younger members)

1. You must have been born in the United States.
2. If NOT born in the US, you must have been made a citizen before the US Constitution was put into law. So, unless you're a vampire, highlander, or other immortal, no dice....
3. You must be 35 or older.
4. Even if you meet ALL of the above, you must have lived in the US for 14 of those years or more.

I thought conservatives were all about preserving the Constitution. Well...guess not. Let's just change alter to suit our whims. I have always disagreed with this issue. And what's worse, most of ya'll would change your mind if Arnie was a flaming liberal.

The terminator is on the hit list cause he is the one trying to be president...

and we all know damn well any other country wouldnt even think twice about not letting this happen and you all know it... if he wants to become president then tell him to go back to astria or wherever to be president... we got enough corrupt morons in office as it is, we dont need another one, for that matter a foriegn on.

The framers of the constitution put this in for a reason. The reason being a foriegn born citizen may not have their first allegance to the USA. I don't know the answer to my next question, but if provided answer...with facts, maybe I'll reconsider my opinion. But how many other countries have there leader open to foriegn born citizens? If there are any, I;ll bet the number is small!!!!
