Arguing, College, and Joe Biden: let's get it popping. Biden/Obama 2020 yeah yeah i know @WeCloutChase The 22nd amendment would allow Joe Biden to run as President and Barrack Obama as his VP.

It does not prohibit someone becoming president through a line of succession, Having not been directly elected to the office. A former president would not be constitutionally ineligible based on those parameters.It’s a loophole in the wording but the law is literally build on loopholes. A constitutional lawyer could and would argue this if they tried to make it happen. Now this article also points out they almost certainly wouldn’t try to make it happen because of the backlash and lack of likelihood that the electoral college would approve such a ticket. But it is theoretically possible.

Books, Community, and Love: MEET JOSE MUJICA G CONNECTING CONSCIOUSNESS Jose is the president of Uruguay. He drives a 1987 Volkswagen Beetle, donates 90% of his salary to charity every month ($12,500), keeps only $1,250 and is considered "the world's poorest president" "I'm called the poorest president, but I don't feel poor. Poor people are those who only work to try to keep an expensiue lifestyle, & always want more." Now this is someone who stands with the people! Donating nearly 90% of his income to the people of his community. Man that is what a real leader does. They don’t build mega homes, fly private jets, create massive amounts of waste and increase their carbon footprint. They live simple, their love is unconditional (you don’t have to be a member) and their actions move mountains. Man i could only imagine the ripple effect this individual would have here in the states. I wonder how many billion aids would give up their ridiculous status and help out humanity. I wonder how the history books would be written after we humbled ourselves and started to act like a collective consciousness - community. If y’all want me to vote then let’s get this guy into office and I’ll join him too.
