phalamir: Sir Cumference the Flatulent: Same goes for the Bushes, the Clintons, the Kennedys, the Tafts. I'm sick of all of them.Are you advocating that certain people be denied the right to run for office simply because of one drop of blood?Because that is the practical effect of your comment; punishing one person for the perfectly legal actions of another. We let felons run for office. So, you are creating a form of super-felon, barred from a facet of public political life without conviction, trial, or even charge, simply because they share blood with another person who did something not only legal, but necessary for government to run.Don't like someone related to someone else holding political office trying to hold political office? Then vote against them. Dynasties exist because they have a mechanism to insure the passing power along. "Hoping a bunch of farkers vote for my son" is a plan, not a mechanism.

markfara: No, it wasn't. It was founded so wealthy, powerful colonial landowners and their descendents could run things without having to answer to Britain.
