but, most of the guys here that get heavily involved in our political debates are old enough to be running for offices in this country. 25 to be a congressman, 30 to be a senator. not much else required after that, just citizenship. (according to the constitution) yes, i know that these can usually be expensive, but, that doesnt mean it couldnt be done. i'll be 24 this year, next year, i'll be old enough. and its starting to be a serious consideration to me. been thinking about it, and will be doing a lot of research into it. and even if i did try and fail miserably (most likely outcome), at least i tried. B, you should seriously look into it, would def help for your presidential run after you turn 35. lol. anywho, thought it would be an interesting one to discuss. what better way to serve your country than in the offices that we complain the most about. and if anybody here did run, and happen to win, you have a whole site of people willing to put in their 2 cents.
