After reading the above, It is pretty plain to see that one did not have to be "specially trained" in law or otherwise to be elected to representative office.
Yet, our politicians in office first arguments against opponents is as to whether they are "qualified" to take the position in question.
The forefather who wrote this did not intend for a separate class of people, uniquely qualified by ethnicity, income or education to be the sole legislators and office holders of this country.
We have allowed an elitist class of people to develop who do everything in the power to convince us that of their group alone should we select our leadership.
I suggest to you, my fellow Americans, that we stop following and become the leaders, each and every one of us.
Educate ourselves and our children on the Constitution. Each of us take part in our communities by voting, participating in local government "town hall" meetings and otherwise.
The only thing keeping the "common" man from taking this country back is our own willingness to be mis-lead and shouted down by those who fear losing their protected status, so carefully crafted over years of indoctrination and rhetoric.
We who run family and small businesses successfully. We understand our rights and the U.S. Constitution. We have learned from history so that we do not repeat the mistakes that were made and to continue the success achieved.
From our humble ranks can the leaders of this country ascend as independents.
As a person who thinks for them-self, speaks for their community and votes for everyone.
I believe in you, American farmer, grocer, baker, firefighter, construction worker and so on. Success isn't necessarily measured in the accumulation of dollars. it is evidenced by the conditions of the people around us that we step up for. The people we take under our wing. Our children and neighbors and co-workers alike. How do they fare on our watch?
If they fare well, then that is success.
Please everyday American, don't be tricked into thinking that money and high status are the qualifications that are required to be the President or a Congress person.
We can take back our country from those who would hijack it away from us.It takes courage, persistence and a sense of purpose.
WE can do it.
