Friday Funny: The Millennial Voter

FSU ClassroomThose of you who are worried about which candidate will be our next president relax, the following is just one example of a more serious problem in this country.

With so much current press coverage on the Presidential primaries, a professor of an American Government Course at Florida State University was discussing the qualifications to become a U.S. President:

Age and Citizenship requirements – US Constitution, Article II, Section 1

 

  • No person except a natural born citizen, 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.

Almost immediately, one girl in the class threw up her hand with a very disturbed look on her face.  The professor called on her and she stood up and rambled on and on about how unfair this requirement is to be a natural born citizen. In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president.

All eyes were on her as she got more an more passionate about this subject.  The class was taking it in and patiently letting her rant, until 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?

The room exploded with laughter and the poor professor simply put his face in his hands and shook his head.  Yep, these are the same 18-20 year-olds (millennials) that are now voting in the current elections!
