Why would this be cited in the article I linked to?

Officials in Massachusetts were equally insistent that their influential Constitution of 1780 afforded "the most ample liberty of conscience … to Deists, Mahometans, Jews and Christians," a point that Chief Justice Theophilus Parsons resoundingly affirmed in 1810.

The true spirit of our Founding Fathers, children of the Enlightenment, bold and free original thinkers!

The Enlightenment was a product of and for Anglos and the people and culture they most knew and understood, and was even exclusionary of other known groups at the time. It remains to be seen if the philosophies are universally applicable to all others if they have their druthers. Plenty of signs so far say it is probably not.

If the Constitution were being folllowed there wouldn't even be any Somalis in this country.

So you'll be writing to the current POTUS and tell him he needs to divorce his foreign-born wife, because she shouldn't be First Lady of the United States, correct?

You might want to brush up on your history. We've had foreign born senators, representatives, governors, mayors, and so on, ever since we formed as a nation. The two offices closed to those of non-native-birth are the POTUS and VP.

FLOTUS is not an elected office, you do know that right?

We shouldn't have had any of those things. If there is a reason to close the office of the Executives to foreigners then surely there is reason enough to close ALL OF THE OTHER JOBS IN GOVERNMENT as well.

America is for Americans. Not for foreigners. It is OUR government, it should be restricted to real citizens. Not people who just show up here and want to be part of it.

Whats truly dumb is your non-response. Instead of calling my post dumb, why don't you provide an answer? Put me in my place, by answering. That would make me look dumb, if you posted this "oh look it is so obvious - here is the authority right here" reply to me.

But...you can't.

So who's dumb now?

My morbid curiosity wants to know what's there, as I'm sure there's new lows being set for both tolerance and sentient intelligence, but I'm just much happier with the ignore feature than I ever have been before.

Re-read what you wrote. You also included 'unpaid volunteers', and if FLOTUS isn't the ultimate unpaid volunteer position in the U.S., I don't know what is.

Awww.....guess we know who was sleeping in junior-high school history and missed the complete point of the United States.

But sadly for you.....nearly 250 years of history disagrees with you.
