Bernie Sanders called Trump’s killing of Soleimani an assassination and then suggested the alternative would be to “sit down and work out our differences through debate and discussion at the UN” pic.twitter.com/8ErFEJ7Es2

The positions the old fellow takes are unique. Should have strong appeal to those who oppose war and our efforts in the middle east

I fail to see how electing anyone above 70 years old is ever a good idea. He's 78 years old, would be 79 when he would take office.

Instead of making it so you have to be at least 35 to take office, maybe we should consider banning anyone over 70 from doing so. Very easy for someone of that age to begin showing signs of dementia or even die in office.

No, because not everyone ages the same or as quickly. Sanders has more of his faculties that Joe Biden or Trump. That's shows how individual aging is.

At the time of our founding, age 35 was not that young either. Today it is since kids are in school a lot longer with less real world experience. I'd rather that be age 45.
Afterall, we keep hearing how the 40's are the new 30's and the the 50's are the new 40's on and on an on. People live much longer and kids don't go to work at ages as young as 12 or get married at 16.

Bernie is reaching for the young voters. One of his main selling points is free college education. Does he mean all public/state colleges? Take my school, Purdue, has an enrollment of 30k students with tuition 10k for in-state students, where does the school get the money from? state, or the Fed?

We disagree. It hasn't been much but there are some differences. Yes, a president can only do so much because of his powers under the Constitution. He needs Congress and right now they are hostile to much of what he promised with the Senate being NeoCon Occupied Territory. All the hoaxes about Russia and Ukraine has served to restrained what he promised too. It's like he has to be liked to much--another failing of his. You just can't please everyone. I still say, the names he was provided for positions has been a major impediment.

If it's a state university funded by the public then it would be the states currently at least. There are grants from the federal govt to students I would imagine. Under Bernie's plan, I have no idea how he intends to implement his idea but if he's a USSR socialist, which I think he is, he would have the central govt seize them to own them.

Any one that is able to vote, should also qualify to be able to be president.

So you think 18 year olds can be president?

Or do you think only 35 year olds can vote?

I'm saying I understand those 18 to 34 who can vote cannot be president. Im saying they SHOULD qualify to be president if the country elected them.

38 year olds are probably millennials. 23 to 38. Lots of people who couldn't be president, for what reason? Seems discriminatory. There is no reason for it to exist.

Even if some Gen Z 18 year old was able to convince the masses they were the best candidate, they should be electable. I realize that nothing would probably change but there is no reason for the law to exist. It would be much more reasonable to ban someone of an old age dur to dimentia concerns and health concerns once they became to power.
