    I believe that being involved in secret groups other than official American Politics opens the door for our government to be infiltrated and manipulated.

    What are your thoughts?
    Wasn't George Washington a Mason? Nah, I think we've done pretty well with allowing Presidents to belong to fraternities.
    Every little kid wants to belong to some unique organization. It's neat. And since all the Prez's so far have been men, that kind of childishness carries over into adult life with a lot of other useless bagage.
    What harm could it do?

    Do you think it's childish that a unique organization saves the lives of thousands of children, worldwide? How USELESS is it to donates MILLIONS of dollars EVERY DAY to benevolent causes and do charitable works within our own communities as QUIETLY as we can?

    Do you think George Washington was childish?

    If you do think we are childish, that's ok. No, really. It's ok. If it bothered us what other people thought, would be be puttin' around at all the parades like this?



    Nobody makes as much fun of us as we make of ourselves. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, in our "secret" moments, , if your child is barely clinging to life, and needs our help, just call. I won't matter that you laughed at us. We'll be there for you anyways.

    The Constitution is quite clear on the qualifications for POTUS. Article 2 Clause 5:

    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.

    If being a member of a secret society was a game changer than George Washington wouldn't have been allowed be POTUS as he was a freemason.

    There used to be an online version of the board game I haven't played it in years, it was called tripleA.

    You do realize that this restriction would have meant that anyone who was opposed to slavery and was a part of the Underground Railroad wouldn't have been allowed to be president.
