ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER FOR PRESIDENT
Anyone who will listen to what we have to say
More Info at:
This is a petition to get Article 2, section 1 of the US Constitution changed to allow naturalized US citizens to serve as President. Article 2 of the US Constitution states:
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 say lets get this changed to let it state:
No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States OF AT LEAST 20 YEARS, 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 think the current statement of Article 2, Section 1 is unfair. There are great leaders out there who were not born in the US. Some of these leaders who became US citizens love and appreciate this country more than many of those who were born here and take it for granted. They have lived life outside the US and know what it means to be an American citizen. Know what it means to live free and have their families live in a free world. I believe Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of these people. Mr. Schwarzenegger as President of the United States of America is almost like Mr. Schwarzenegger as President of the world. I realize this is a bold statement, but the man is loved and admired all over the world. People listen to him. People respect him. This is the kind of person we need running these great United States.
He has already proved himself a great American. Now please help in changing this unfair statement of the constitution to allow what we know will one day happen, so why not now. I realize it may take more than a petition to get something changed in the constitution, but hey, we have to start somewhere. Let us, as fans of Mr. Schwarzenegger, give a little back, give a little something back to the man that I know shaped the way many of us lead our lives today.
Personally, I would rather see him make more movies. However, he should not, and WE should not, be denied the right to see The one and only, ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER become President of the United States of America.
