    COMPENTENCY TEST FOR OFFICE AS PRESIDENCY.

    That would eliminate runners like Palin, Bachmann, Romney, Huckabee, Paul and lots of others. Especially is they are evangelicals. Lawyer, Doctors, teachers, drivers, etc has to take a test to show competency. Also for member of congress would eliminate people like Boehner.

    There also should be a mandatory retirement age for member of our government who make laws. Byrd, Kennedy, Reid,etc and some of those in the Supreme Court should be forced to retire. With age your reasoning ability become distorted. I don’t want these old senile men and women making decisions that affect me life and the future of my children.

    Bush would have never pass a mental evaluation test. Neither would Cheney, Rumsford,

    Majority of the senate is over the age of 65.
    List of current United States Senators by age - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In 2004 eight of the Supreme Court justices were over 65 years old

    Competency test, force retirement and mental evaluations for government employers and term limits. Who interviews them for their jobs?

    Most people like the idea of some sort of test before being allowed to vote but in the end, it's just one person thinking they're so much smarter than everyone else.

    My suggestion is: "If you didn't pay Taxes, you can't vote".

    Where do I start?
    We do.

    WOW That was just brilliant. Here's a hint for you; If you are going to knock on people for being dumb, make sure your rant is close to being mistake free.

    I don't see any evidence of partisanship in this OP since you mentioned Byrd, Kennedy, and Reid.

    There should be no competency test.

    The public should have the right to elect idiots if they want to.

    if you have the credentials and the likability, go for it. unfortunately, i wish people didn't just believe whatever they were spoon-fed on television.

    Who the hell is Rumsford? And don't get me started on the grammar.

    Oh... the irony.

    Sure, let's throw the constitution in the trash. Why not?

    The voters.
