Happy 4th of July ye Americans!!!!
Sorry, BSOM, had to acknowledge my German half. Plus the French part on my dad's side.
BTW, who was the first President born in the USA?
Martin Van Buren (8th president)
If the President had to be a USA citizen, how did the first seven qualify?
Section One of Article II of the U.S. Constitution establishes the requirements one must meet in order to become President. The president must be a natural-born citizen of the United States (or a citizen of the United States at the time the U.S. Constitution was adopted), be at least 35 years old, and have been a resident of the United States for 14 years.
I always wondered about that. I have an American History textbook I'm going to read a bit later.
Btw: I'm German and French as well, so it's good to know how 'we' contributed to it all.
Still don't like this holiday. 'the bomb's bursting in air'. I like to think of the whole world as a brotherhood..
