Is it time for a Non-American president? (vanity)
13/10/07 | Phil.K

Posted on 10/13/2007 10:16:37 AM PDT by Jakarta ex-pat

In sports, as in business, we often seek the best possible man/woman for the job.

The person that will lead us on to victory.

Is it time we choose this route when electing our leaders?

Of course, historically, Napoleon and Hitler are examples of why we shouldn't.

Nevertheless a President/prime minister who has the best interests of a country at heart shouldn't be discounted.

Or should it?

The US Constitution says that the US President must be a natural-born US Citizen. End of the story.

Historically, foreign leaders didn’t have the country’s best interests at heart. They’ve had their own best interests at heart, and were just using the country to get what they wanted.

No thanks. Too many countries were left in shambles.

The fact remains that it isn’t possible without flooding another 100 million illegals in to vote us out of the country with a 2/3 states amendment to the US Constitution.

Just be patient. The dems and other liberal trash are working hard at doing just that, and for now, one Arnold has done enough damage to America.

I would be presuming that the Non American president would LOVE America; not hate it.

John Jay to George Washington

New York 25 July 1787

Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise & seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expresly that the Command in chief of the american army shall not be given to, nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.

No, this is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

We have an overabundance of capable people, we don't need to change the Constitution for some misplaced sentimental multi-culti reason.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

And the number of American politicians who believe in this are?

About the same number as the legal points in your post.
In other words, irrelevant.

You are beating a dead horse that was never even a horse to begin with.

"I would be presuming that the Non American president would LOVE America; not hate it."

Why would you be making that presumption? We already have about 50% of the native born adult population, not to mention the kids, who have been through the public school indoctrination, who hate it? Why would you presume any foreign-born President wouldn't hate it and want to destroy it too? (To improve it, of course. /s)

While there are some similarities in the functions of a US President and a CEO of a big corporation, they're not identical. A country involves many other dimensions that do not exist in corporation.

The worst example, I think, is Alberto Fujimori of Peru. When they tried to send him to jail, he bailed out and fled to Japan and claimed his Japanese citizenship (even though he was born Peruvian).

How is lebaran (Eid) in Jakarta? BTW, Indonesia also has a similar clause in their constitution: only 'genuine' Indonesian can be a president.

We've already had a few of those. They were born here, but they sure didn't have America's interest at heart...ANO's.....Americans in Name Only.

as the father of 2 teenaged daughters, married to s Southern belle and son of Scarlett herself.

I would not vote for a woman if you put a gun to my head. I love women. They are delicious. I adire them...worship them actually. They birth "real men" but as president at that level of governance and authority?

No thanks. You can call me whatever you want.
