    This is nonsensical nazi bull**** and I do not want Jebidiah "Mr. Nazi" Bush to have the chance to sodomize the rest of the country.
    If we're willing to ban bad politicians from politics, the next stop is banning bad voters from voting. You surely don't want that, do you?

    I think we definitely need a "no legacy" rule for POTUS.

    Ok. This is a good point.

    No, I do not want voters to lose their voice. In any event, with the exception of criminals, Americans get a vote as a matter of law. This isn't going to change.

    I do believe we need a "no legacy" rule to protect the country of familial corruption of the US by a collective group working to push their agenda through election of its members.

    My apologies for the hostile tone of this thread and the PMs you and I exchanged.

    I do appreciate the small amount of courtesy you extended.

    Happy New Year to you sir.

    Yea, John Quincy Adams and Benjamin Harrison were definitely corrupt assholes.

    My problem with that is that you are in essence punishing the children for the sins of the father. The only way a person should be kept out of public office is by letting the people decide not to vote for them or if they themselves have done somethign to disqualify them from holding that office (such as a criminal offence).

    Their lineage may well be a very legitimate reason to not vote for them, but it shouldn't bar them form being able to run for any office that they are qualified to run for.
