Quote# 71510

[Discussing the Constitution's requirement that one may only be eligible for the Presidency if one is a natural-born citizen.]

I propose going back in time and having the founding fathers insert the following addition:

"...and may not be islamic, a fraud, a Chicago street thug and bagman for a criminal political entity, a drunk, a user of crack, a liar, a Marxist, a socialist, a communist, a fascist, a mulatto, a punk, an arrogant son-of-a-bitch, a racist, and a person bent on the destruction of the United states of America."

Laconic version:

"...and may not be black"

The strident self righteous rage of the Freeper community makes me giggle. Until I realise these frothing maniacs are allowed to vote. Do they know you can disagree with someone's politics without the need to resort to accusations of crack smoking and terrorism?

Sounds good, it would keep unsavory characters out of office. It might've even kept Bush out of office.

Good thing Obama is none of those

3/15/2010 5:28:40 PM


What I noticed is that he included "socialist" in his list or uneligible people. If you decide of which political opinions can or can't be represented, congratulations, you killed democracy!

3/15/2010 5:42:51 PM

Mr Blur

But don't most of those apply to their hero, Bush?

3/15/2010 6:14:01 PM


Well he's not:
A fraud
Involved with organized crime
An alcoholic
A crack user
Arrogant sob
A person bent on destroying the USA

Since all politicians are liars, you're probably don't object to that, this only leaves "mulatto" (a person of mixed race heritage for those who aren't familiar with this word), hence your motive is racist.

If you went back in time and inserted those things, the Founding Fathers would want to know WTF is Chicago (it didn't exist yet). Also, they'd want to know what Communism is, what socialism is, what Marxism is, what fascism is, what crack is, and what punk means.

Not only is Doc Savage a racist, but he also failed history.

Not racist. Incredibly stupid, but hating Obama doesn't amount to racism.

...a fraud
...a drunk
...a liar
...a fascist
...an arrogant son-of-a-bitch
...a racist
...and a person bent on the destruction of the United states of America

I guess that leaves Bush out of the running. Hooray!!!

If you went back in time and actually told people the truth about what soicalism or communism is instead of your distorted idea they'd demand it be a constitutional requirement.

3/15/2010 8:56:00 PM


They already decided there wasn't going to be a religious test...

3/15/2010 9:11:18 PM


The first one is expressly unconstitutional. No religious test of any kind may be a prerequisite for office.

I believe that having been convicted of a felony already disqualifies you, so that makes the inclusion of criminal and crack user redundant.

The system is not set up to allow one person to introduce socialism, so whether a candidate believes it's a good thing or not matters little.

My irony meter exploded when you say that mixed-race people should not be President but called Obama the racist.

Most politicians are liars, so good luck there. As for "punk" and "arrogant son of a bitch" can you really picture the Founding Fathers using that kind of language? And what would be the official constitutional criteria for declaring someone too arrogant for office?

@John Galt: Hating Obama doesn't make someone racist. Calling him a mulatto and a thug tends to ping the racism detectors.

"I propose going back in time and having the founding fathers insert the following addition"

Good luck with that.
Will you be going by Delorean, or hot tub?

"...a fraud...a drunk...a liar...an arrogant son-of-a-bitch...a racist"

Well, that eliminates all your previous presidents.

"a mulatto...a racist"

And that eliminates you.

Who do you intend to put in this position? And, when his term is up, since you're unlikely to find two people who meet all those qualifications and want the job, who do you plan to replace him with? I hate to be the one to tell you this, but God is not going to come down from heaven and run for president just because you've written yourself into a corner with your ignorance of government and human nature. I know it's frustrating, but just leave the constitution writing to the professionals; they'll add enough pointless requirements without your help.

3/15/2010 9:52:10 PM


Would there be anyone left eligible to run for president?

3/15/2010 10:17:02 PM


a Marxist, a socialist, a communist, a fascist,

One of these things is not like the others,
one of these things just doesn't belong...

Where you would have ended up had you travelled back to the 1700's...

After generous helpings of "rum, sodomy and the lash".

3/15/2010 10:43:01 PM


If you do that, i'll call the time cops and they'll fuck your shit up like the mongolian horde.

3/15/2010 11:12:47 PM


Sure, and we would have ammended the constitution to remove all those things.

Oh and that would have prevented the lovely GW Bush from ever taking office because he lied...

3/16/2010 1:15:08 AM


Wait...so if you're half-black, you're ineligible, but if you're fully black, nothing will keep you form running?

3/16/2010 2:14:25 AM

And how do you justify, among other things, the first ammendment?

3/16/2010 3:32:14 AM

Percy Q. Shunn

Well, I propose we go back in time, and kick your pregnant mother in the cunt.

Ah, somehow I overlooked the mulatto part, thanks.

3/16/2010 4:53:49 AM


He can be black or white or any other color as long as he's not mulatto!
