The truth may be out there, but lies are in your head. ~Terry Pratchett
President no but any other government office is fine.

Jon Huntsman for President
I voted yes but I would like some rules applied to it.
I actually never thought about it before just now when I read the question. Originally I was like HELL NO but then once I thought about it I cant really come up with any good logical reason for a blanket no.
Our government system is set up with the president at top but there is checks and balances to keep him in check and secondly if he makes president that means WE elected him! So I definitely think the answer is yes.
I would like a time limit on it though and some rules. Of course you would have to become a citizen and then be a citizen and live here for a certain amount of years. 10+
Since when was wanting to, and trying to run for President so bad when you were born in another country [saying nothing about when [relative to your brth] you came here or how long you were here] to justify THIS kind of reaction?
Say you were born in a foreign country and brought here at an extremely young age for example, why then should you be disallowed from attempting presidency?
And last I checked, people who came here legally and went through the process are CITIZENS, just not naturalized citizens, you can't DEPORT citizens for something like trying to run for presidency when the only thing that could stop their eligibility is that they weren't BORN here.
Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
I see no reason to lift the prohibition and plenty of reason to keep it. Mostly though, I think this is an issue where the FF's were essentially correct.
