Can we nominate a robot for president?

This way if the individual goes back on their word we just yank the batteries.

2. A robot is engineered and manufactured rather than natural born.

So, no, we would not be able to nominate one.

However, it may be time to start a ROBOT RIGHTS movement.

7. How is that different than a lot of politicians?

It takes a lot of nerve for candidates to step outside the box. Political parties are sort of that restrictive box. I want a candidate who represents the free will of the people not someone constantly molded by some board room or political party collective.

9. First,s a Robot is not a conscious being. Republican are conscious beings, though

they do appear to have no conscious when it comes to the abominable laws they pass.

Robots are not alive in any sense of the word, alive. Though Clint Eastwood debated a chair, that chair was not alive and could not have been elected.
The Constitution requires a natural born citizen and Robots are not born, natural or otherwise.

Political Parties share a ideology and a philosophy There is some evidence that in broad terms, people are born with a Conservative or Liberal personality type.

6. But then we'd all be arguing over who programs it.

Right back where we started.
