Natural Born Presidential Killers

Up Periscope!

This week on This Week with Bill Maher the conversation turned to the Governator, Born in the U.S.A., and the Article of the Constitution that covers the birthplace requirements of a potential POTUS. To wit:

Article II, Section 1, Clause 5: 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.

I come from a family of immigrants…and I agree.

No biggie here. It all goes back to childhood.

I believe that we are the sum and total of our experiences. What we see as children shapes who we are as adults. In youth, we are shown the bright promise of democracy which the clean-slates of our mind accept.

Then, we go through the American educational system…see the media through a child’s eyes…experience the slings and arrows of being ‘different’ as teenager (and we’re ALL different in one way or another)…come to understand the meaning of being wealthy or poor in America…

All these things create an EXPERIENCIAL relationship to this country with different and growingly complex layers of understanding about the good, the bad, and the ugly of our ideology.

When seeking truth, we talk about ‘Out of the mouths of babes.’ I’d like our POTUS to be able to listen to his inner child. Perhaps he or she would say, “Make pudding, not war.”

Down Periscope.
