Changing U.S. Constitution to allow foreigners to run for President
I think that is a threat to National Security. But it is probably the next domino to fall in the quest for the New World Order and getting the sheeple used to a one world government.

15. No, not Arnold
Government can not run on testosterone alone. We have 4 years of proof on that score.

2. Let them try
Jennifer Granholm, Canadian-born Democratic governor of Michigan will kick Schwarzenegger ass if they change the constitution to allow foreign-born citizens to run for president. Provided we are able to have fraud-free elections by that time.

3. No to the Gropenader
I don't see any reason to rewrite the Constitution - just for this one person.

4. No, it's just so Arnold Schwarzenegger can be president.
Fortunately the Constitution is extremely hard to amend, and it usually takes many years and then it's unsuccessful anyway. Aahnold will be older than dirt by the time that process is complete, if ever.

8. I wouldn't count on it........
If they REALLY wanted Arnould to be ready for 2008 it could be done. They have MORE states than we do. BUT in reality it will be Guilani for 2008 and 2012. Arnould will be about 65 in 2016? He would also be a 2 term Governor.They need to get it done in 7 years. That would be just about perfect if they send it to the states next year.

6. As long as we are changing the Constitution
Let's change the presidency to a single five-year term. Very few presidencies accomplish anything in a second term.

7. Well, "World Gubmint" talk aside...
It probably won't happen for a number of reasons. I can't see the public, much less our gutless and divided government, getting behind it.

9. Maybe Prince Bandar has a future in US Fascist Politics..
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 12:35 AM by Blaze Diem
Of course his close association as the bush/cheney confidante, special access to those top-secret closed door meetings that even the US born citizens never hear of, certainly is a good primer for a future President Bandar.

Seems only right that a Saudi Royal would be chosen the successor to King george bush.

These stolen elections are just practice for the big one someday, when the Bin Laden/Bush Royals control the order of the New World.

Just a thought.

11. One of the most glorious things about your Constitution is it's ...
understanding of the key issues and how those who wish to subvert it might act. The level of agreement that must be achieved to make the change which would allow the "Arnolds" of the world to take the Presidency is very high and it is very doubtful it can be achieved.

12. Ads are supposed to start running Monday in support of this
It was reported on Air America Saturday evening. I forget if they were tv ads or what. Sounds like the trial baloon.

13. the change is to allow Foreign Born who ARE American Citizens now
it's not to allow those who are foreign nationals still. it's to allow those who are americans citizens but were foreign born.
