    Probably not a good idea if it goes anything like the last time an Austrian became leader of another country.... :eek: ;)

    Horrendous idea to amend the Constitution with the hopes that one particular person who is in good graces with one particular party might run and might win a presidential election.

    And....Arnold is hardly a conservative, anyway.

    LE, I've seen small "grabs" of Arnie on news down here coming out with "pro-death" statements....

    It seems parties that were once "right" (in more ways than one...) have swung to the left, while the old left has REALLY left...the planet! :eek:

    I watched some of Tammy Bruce's speech at Florida State University that was shown on C-SPAN last night and she made a very good point that the liberals have gone so far, far to the left that they think that moderates are hardcore rightwingers.

    And, as Tammy Bruce also said, the constitution should not be treated as silly putty.

    I am against amending the presidential qualifications in the federal constitution.

    Yep, Ahnold is a mess morally, and he's pro-abortion and pro-gay (at the very least; he's come a long way from modeling for Mapplethorpe)

    But he's a republican.

    And if we don't amend the Constitution to let him run, a democrat might win!

    Here we go again...

    Actually, if you want Peroutka to get more votes having Arnold run would be a good idea. Here is one person who will definitely NOT vote Arnold Schwarzeneggar for President!

    I don't see the amendment happening and I don't want it to either.

    Wow. You know I'm wondering just how much of all this we should take seriously. I first heard of the whole Arnold thing about a month ago, and I think at that time it was still "rumor". Well how much has the internet had to do with fanning the flames and making this become something that is seriously discussed?

    I don't know how nor understand it, but a law student (taking the bar this feb) stated that the constitution could not be amended to make him be able to run since it would somehow take away a right we have. Apparently you can add all the amendments you want (i.e. ya gotta wear blue sox on a tuesday) as long as you don't take away from the original ones placed in the constitution it's self. I dunno, but I don't think that I'd vote for Arnie anyways. That just opens the door a little more widely than it is now, and moreso than what I'm comfortable with.

    Yeah, he's been faithful to his wife of nearly 20 years. He's a devout Catholic and he's also a Christian. Prior to tbeing elected governor of the state, he speant countless volunteer hours, and large sums of money, working for local charities, like food and homeless shelters, the special olympics, and children's centers. What a moral mess!!!
    It depends on what considers those to mean. At the Governor level, he has no interest in changing abortion laws. However, he's flatly against state funding of abortions. He is also against gay marriage, and support the California marriage amendment, which passed two years ago.

    Elite class globalists don't much care if we have a constitution or not. It won't stop them from carrying out their agenda which is global socialism.

    Have a look at... AGENDA 21


    This is just away around our constitution and a way of grabbing our land. Herding the population into reservations basically. Doesn't sound constitutional to me but it will no doubt be argued that it's up to the courts to decide what is constitutional and not us mere citizens.

    Guess it hasn't really sunk in yet that elite criminals will stick together and they'll laugh at us all the way to the bank.

    Barbarian observes:
    Yep, Ahnold is a mess morally...

    The last accusation of sexual misconduct relates to an incident in 2000. There were over a dozen of them, from different women he had behaved badly with (I'd probably get banned for reporting the details)

    He's also done group sex. It's nice that he does charities, but still...

    and he's pro-abortion [/quote]

    Yep. In other words, he sees no problem with abortion, so long as the government doesn't fund it.

    Liberal in all the wrong ways.

    Some of the allegations were in regards to actions while he was young and single. The person making the most recent accusation was refuted, when it was discovered the details she was giving didn't add up. There have been no supportable allegations to suggest that he has ever been unfaithful to his spouse.

    Again, you're referring to when he was young and stupid. In his later years, he got into family, into church, and left his immoral past behind.

    Since abortion is a federal issue, and not a state issue, it's more of a nonissue, except to those who make it an issue.

    For POTUS? I likely would not vote for him either. But for Governor? Not only did I vote for him, but he has done an incredibly terriffic job managing the job he was elected to. The primary issues of CA were fiscal stability and financial responsibility. The issues of the country are different. Sure, if Arnold were POTUS, we'd have fiscal responsibility so fast that GW's head would spin. And, we'd have a POTUS that would refuse to accept his 300k a year salary (something not even a Kennedy would do). And, we'd have a POTUS who has no problem referring to democrats as "girlie men" (hey, maybe it's not such a bad idea after all). But, there are so many more issues at the federal level that do not exist at the state level.

    The POTUS/Schwarzenegger issue is a nonissue, however. Assuming the Constitution were to be amended, it likely would not be amended in his lifetime. And, there are certainly more mainline republicans out there than the fiscally conservative but politically moderate governator.

    What if the Constitution were amended, he did run, and his opponent was Hillary Clinton?
