I'd probably rather him there than Dubya.
I heard that there's been a lot of talk of changing the constitution to allow foreign born to become president.
NO! ..... I think my reason would be pretty obvious.
Seriously, compared to all the other crybabies and scumbags in Washington, at least you know where Arnold stands. In the state that the governator governs, he doesn't play party politics, and doesn't care about fitting into the conservative mold. Arnold really isn't even a republican, he just pretends to be one. He is pro-choice, is a 'green' governor, pro-stem cell research, he's not against gay-marriage, and isn't a bible beater who quotes the Christrianity all the damn time. Plus, he's just freakin tough and gets things done.
I don't think where a person is born determines how 'American' he/she can be. I know people born and raised here, and their political ideals are in-line with Kim Jong Il.
People like to make fun of Arnold because he's a republican, or he admires Ronald Reagan, or because he used to be in a lot of really bad movies. But putting that aside, he's quite a skillful and productive politician and has very liberal social leanings.
Of course, I'd much rather see Ron Paul or Obama Barack become president, but if none of them were a choice, and Arnold was, I'd definately vote for him over the other douche bags.
I'd say Arnold is more libertarian than anything. People just dont like parties out of the norm of left and right. So yeah I would vote for him. Libertarians all the way.
aboslutely.. - JAG
it's only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything..
hahaha...omg , if i even imagine how this would be...a man from my own country , the first foreign president of the united states...Austria is awesome ! *starts to sing national anthem*
and i agree...Mr- Schwarzenegger gets things done...not like yopur current President =/
I'll vote Arnold any day!
Here are some enjoyment from Arnold
You have to understand that, in 2000 when he was first (*ahem*) "elected," the attitude among most people was "hey, how bad can he screw things up?"
Well, that question has been answered quite spectacularly.

hmmm...spectacularly doesn`t fit it i think , sounds too positive...more like "dramatically" or "awefull" =(What irks me most about Bush is his pro-christianity attitude (politics and religion...when do people learn that this doesn`t work out too well) and the weird "wannabe world dominator" behaviour <,< We actually have history books in Highschool in which is a whole chapter dedicated to americas not so bright history since 9/11. Makes me sad. Before Bush let America wage war against middle-east countries i haven`t done any research regarding the USA and always thought it would be a country of freedom and the good big brother of our earth who protects us against who-knows-what. Quite illusoric...
When he ran for governor, I ran out and voted for him. Yup, that's right I love California! It's the most hilarious thing ever. Politics? Phtt. Like I care about those.
I do take the stand on a non-native American being able to be president. It's so lame that America is supposed to be all "c'mon in, immigrants! we care!" and then they turn around and once a person is legally an American, they can't run America? Besides, the 3 qualifications of being able to run for president are being born in America, being over 35, and having lived in the US for 14 consecutive years. WTF? This is all in the Constitution, article 2. These are the dumbest qualifications ever. Anyhow, yeah, I'd love to vote to change the first qualification. Also, adding some level of education to the mix would be nice, too. Theoretically, you can be a high school drop out and become president. Scary.
lets put Ingrid Newkirk in office and turn this place into a damn jungle where chickens and horses are the dominant species.
I seriously doubt you would ever be able to get me to vote in the USA again.
After the lack of political support to help me get back a job I was fired from several years ago for something I said on my own time, I now have no respect for politicians. They're all talk about our rights and freedom here and no action. That's all I wanted, their help in defending my right to free speech as guaranteed in the Bill Rights First Amendment. At the local level the Democratic Party, and on the State level, the Republican party. Arnold to me is just another one of them, a dog and pony show.
I have never been to Australia yet I have a gut feeling that people out there probably have more freedoms than here in the USA. Being a world super power means you have to make people believe they are the greatest and have more freedom than anyone else in the world yet secretly and through the corrupt practice of invisible power you control everything and violate citizen's rights to create the type of power structure, society and economic system that makes you a super power. I'd rather live somewhere where freedom is for real, and the quality of life is better.
I thought about your post last night and came up with this direct response to your question. We currently have George Bush Jr., related to George Bush Sr.
We have Hillary Clinton running for president, related to a former president Bill Clinton. Arnold's wife is part of the Kennedy clan. I thought the United States fought a revolutionary war to get away from the nepotism of kings and queens where the inherit right to rule is passed to a relative? Why would people continue to vote in the same pattern of electing presidents that would be the situation under the rule of a monarchy? Arnold should respect the traditional law of this country prohibiting anyone not born as a citizen in this country from running for president. Precedent should rule and be respected in this situation not some socially and politically correct ideology that fits into the scheme of a new global type of world order and economy.
Arnold will probly be president because if you remember in Last Action Hero, he was.
so how did this topic come about anyway? Did it begin with an idea (an image of arnolds face closing in)
WAIT hold on a second. Stop everything! Everyone shtup.
Now... I dont remember Arnold being the president in Last Action Hero. All I remember is him playing himself in "real life", and as the action character in the movie the kid was watching...
looks to me like you need to watch hannity's america to see how our freedoms are being attacked by EVILDOERS. (evidently they're all around us)
but seriously folks, my vote goes to that guy from law and order, nixon called him dumb but he's like wise on tv, not like arnold who's just kill happy in the movies (see commando in the shack scene). but it all depends on who arnold would run against, i'd vote for him over say, crazy cat lady.
I dunno about Last Action Hero, but isn't there that one scene in Demolition Man....
Stallone: "Hold it! The Schwarzenegger Library?"
Bullock: "Yes, the Schwarzenegger Presidential Library. Wasn't he an actor?"
Stallone: "Stop! He was President?"
Bullock: "Yes. Even though he was not born in this country, his popularity at the time caused the 61st Amendment…"
No to Arnold. No to Ron Paul; who is an extremely conservative libertarian. No to anymore Republicans running this government.
The basis of Republican ideology is that government doesn't or can't work. Why in the hell would I want someone who believes in THAT to run this government? Besides, it's sure worked the last decade (with R's running Congress) and the last seven (with R's in the White House), eh?
Terrible idea. Terrible.

Ron Paul is the most un-Republican Republican I've seen in a while. He's got my vote so far. I don't care about labels... Democrats and Republicans are the same damn thing. They all vote for uncontrolled government spending. They all vote for uncontrolled escalation of war.... etc, etc, etc. When you have a politician running on principles that actually make a lot sense, especially compared to the rest of the political drivel out there, I sit up and pay attention regardless of what his/her "party" affiliation might be.
And I'd like to add that Stephen lo piano hit on an excellent point... Political dynasties should not be encouraged in this country. I purposely did not vote for Bush in 2000 partly because his father was already president. I would not vote for Clinton (for many reasons) but partly because her damn husband was already president.
