do you think that ordinary people can still become senators/congresmen?

No, only people with pure blood should have the power.

Of course, it's called the "American Dream".

Nixon came from a very, very poor background. He made it right to the top.

Not ordinary in intelligence or motivation.

Obama went to Harvard Law and became a strong club leader. No ordinary person can do that.

They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

Reagan came from a tiny Illinois town, became a mediocre actor, became a California governor, and then became one of the greatest presidents of all time..

shit, I'm going to run for president next election, apparently experience is optional.

Almost every congressman is an ordinary person, with the exception being Barney Frank, I don't know what's wrong with him, but he sure as hell isn't normal.

You know all of those "log cabin" presidents? They didn't live in a log cabin because they were rich.
#15
Poll?
And no. You more or less have to be rich. Technically, you're supposed to be able to, but it's unrealistic to think that the average person could become a congressperson.

QFT.

A lot of senators/congressmen come from modest backgrounds.

No, they were born leaders. The moment they left their mothers womb, they commanded "Unhand me, doctor!". Their orders were fulfilled without delay.

EDIT: But actually, I dunno if he's been mentioned yet, but Polish President Lech Walesa worked as a carpenter, electrician and car mechanic, before leading strikes against the government, and getting involved in politics.

No, you must be able to fly on the wings of an eternal flame to the highest mountain peak of the largest continent and then drink from the cup of eternal blood without succumbing to poison.

That is the only way you can become a senator/congressman

And I would honestly have to say no. At least nowadays, you need a good bit of money/influence/connections/etc.

Yes. Half of the Israeli presidents came out of Kibbutz, which are socialist farms.
Lenin was a schools principal.
Hitler was a frustrated painter and a soldier.

There are a ****load of more examples that I don't remember.

Sarah Palin.


I don't think we realize how lucky we are now that we voted for the adults this time.


EDIT: She's a Governor in case anyone is confused.


Well for Congressmen, most have a good education and law degree. I don't know if you we're to classify that as "ordinary". However that doesn't necessarily mean intelligence for them .

What the hell do you mean?

Most Congressmen are ordinary people, as far as I know. None of the are biomechanical monsters or anything - yet.

EDIT: I've actually thought about maybe running for Congress when I'm older.
