United States Needs Constitutional Change!

I thought I heard the Republican Candidate for President say something about the need for a change in The U.S. Constitution while I was watching TV last night.

What I thought I heard the candidate say was something to the effect that he would like to see a Constitutional change that would require all candidates for President of The U.S. to have at least Three (3) years business experience as a qualification for the highest office in the land.

I have my own ideas for Constitutional changes that are needed:

The first change I would like to make in the Constitution would require all candidates for the Presidency and for all Governorships and all Senators and Representatives and municipal officials (Mayors, City Managers and the whole ball of wax)- – - In my humble view each of these kinds of candidates for elected office need to have served honorably in the Military for at least Three (3) years before qualifying to enter electoral contests.

I get so darned tired of elected officials being able to put the lives of our precious Military Members on the line when the elected officials often don’t have one minute of military experience – - – but they sure do not waiver in sending our brave young heroes into harm’s way at the slightest whim, do they?

I think every elected official should have to have served honorably in the military as a condition of their candidacy- – - no exceptions!

I am an American Man, 72-years-old, and a Veteran of The U.S. Military. I have served honorably in both The United States Army (National Guard) and The United States Air Force for a total of seven years and three months active duty during what is now known as The Vietnam Era. I am a concerned citizen and refer to myself as "A Crazy Left Wing Liberal Nut Case with occasional Right Wing Conservative tendencies. I am particular fearful that we might get to the point, in our internal power struggles where we would be a One Party Nation.
