Subject: Natural Born Citizen

The following is a funny and true story shared by KC
Williams who teaches AP Government at Santa Fe High School .

In one of KC's classes, they were discussing the qualifications to be
president of the United States .

They are pretty simple:

The candidate must be a natural born citizen and at least 35 years of

One girl in the class immediately started complaining about how unfair
the requirement to be a natural born citizen was.

In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable
individuals from becoming president.

KC and the class were just taking it in and letting her rant, but
everyone's jaw hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating,
"What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this
country than one born by c-section?"
