Who will be our next president?

By Olga Hengen

Out constitution laws to become president

First, you must be thirty-five years of age or older.

Second, you must have been a "Resident" of the United States for fourteen years. Then as now, inhabitant meant being a legal domiciliary, but resident could mean either a domiciliary or a physical presence. Perhaps the Framers desired a person as President who had actually been present in the United States for the required period and had developed an attachment to and understanding of the country, rather than one who was legally an inhabitant, but who may have lived abroad for most of his life.

The third qualification to be President is that one must be a "natural born Citizen" (or a citizen at the time of the adoption of the Constitution). Although any citizen may become a Member of Congress so long as he has held citizenship for the requisite time period, to be President, one must be "a natural born Citizen."


If you answered yes to all 3 then you might as well run for out next president.
