Oh, you can be elected to more than one office. But you can't move down, only up. You can be a state representative, then a US representative, then President.

W's records were unsealed in 2005, he did serve, but he got out under strange circumstances. Reagan, on the other hand, did 5 years of reserve and 4 years of active duty; though he never saw combat, he served as a port liason officer, a public relations specialist, and oversaw the unit that produced training films for the Army Air Corps. He held leadership positions and had objectives to accomplish. If you count his earnings from being a movie star, Reagan might actually qualify, now that I think about it.

Actually, Raegan used to bitch about is movie earnings averaging only $5000 a year, thats why he tried to get on TV, because a show would earn him more than his movies did. And i didn't know W's records were released, imma have to look into those. also, If your system calls for representatives to still be in use i say we go one step further and remove anyone with felonies or links to organized crime and you cannot trade one office for another meaning you have 10 years in office but you cannot be re-elected or elected into another office.

this is becoming a very interesting project, no?

1 out of 4 qualifications wouldn't disqualify the bushes or Reagan, since they all served in the military, but 2 out of 4 would. To reduce the possibility of governmental abuse, when a candidate is elected, they must immediately and permanently sever all ties with their former company. No more wages, no stock options, no retirement plan. There will still be abuse, but a good deterrent would be to prosecute the confirmed use of a high government position to advance the interests of a corporation or group of corporations as treason; life in prison or death penalty. Sounds a little extreme, but with great power comes great responsibility, so saith Spiderman, our lord and pizzaboy, amen.

actually raegan was discharged before any actual service due to eyesight and memory issues in Des Moines, Iowa. And W's records were all sealed during a controversy that stated he never actually enlisted. I am assuing your system would require evidence. Also, Clinton was chairman of the board at Tyson Foods, Inc. before becoming a governor and Obama had a legal firm in Illinois before running for Senator. George W. Bush owned the only oil company to go under in 5 years time, and was bailed out by a middle eatern real estate tycoon by the name of Shafiq bin Laden. Bush senior was two years shy of your foreign diplomat prerequisite as head of the CIA. The only person involved with the GOP that would ever have qualified is Dick Cheney. And I'm not even going down that road again.

Out of the last presidents we've had, it would immediately disqualify Obama and Clinton. If we went for people having to hold 2 out of those 4 qualifications, it would disqualify every president I've looked at, all the way back to Taft. Out of the current senators, I think it would disqualify about 40% of them. I'm pretty okay with presidents and representatives, I just want it to be legally required that they have more qualifications to run a country than a winning smile and 35 years of age.

it would also disqualify both bush's and reagan, so it does have an appeal, but if we put a person in office that is only interested in his own business interests then the whole country would become a business. Now I know that sounds good, but businesses cut corners, especially when they need to care for their employees and injured workers. Also 80 percent of politicians on both sides of the aisle that have businesses use those businesses to undermine other compnies. read up on the carlyle group, Endurance Specialty Holdings, and bain capital,
