Born Yesterday

an outrageous disqualification

Required Qualifications

You, who worry about democrats versus republicans--relax, here is our real problem.
In a Purdue University classroom, they were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States . It was pretty simple the candidate must be a natural born citizen at least 35 years of age.

Qualifications Unfair

However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen. In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president. The class was taking it in and letting her rant, and not many jaws hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating "What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?"

Not Exactly Well Informed

Yep, these are the same kind of 18-year-olds that voted in our last presidential election!
