    I am of several minds on this and am still mulling it over. I am interested in other opinions. Please don't just say "yes" or "no". Explain specifically what characteristics Jesus demonstrated in practice or his teaching that supports your position. I will give my answer when I reach it. :lol:

    He couldn't run, he's not American born.

    Of course not. Jesus would end every social service the government provides and urge individuals to give of their own to the needy. To the rest, it would be work or starve.

    He would not let anyone 'starve'.

    But, the fact remains, he's not US Born so would be ineligible. (I could add in a smart assed remark about Obama but the intellectually challenged on the left would think I was serious and misquote me).

    1 Timothy 5 (Blue Letter Bible: KJV - King James Version)

    What gives you to even ask that question. IF you know your bible you would know that his coming kingdom is a goverment ruled by him and a select followers.

    What Is the Kingdom of God?

    OK Miss California!

    What if Jesus was born in America, do you think he would make a good president?

    I say no, because Jesus would die for our enemiees and I consider that TREASON!

    Remember the story about feeding the multitude with 5 fishes and 2 loaves of bread? So much for food stamps, social security and welfare. And all those miracles healing the sick and infirm? Medicare and Medicaid covered. Spread the gospel in Iran, China, Russia, and North Korea, no more defense spending either. Which means --- wait for it --- we don't have to soak the rich with higher taxes! Tax cuts for everybody! Gotta be a republican IMHO.
