William of Orange was also the grandson of Charles I through his mother, Mary. His uncle was the Duke of York, and he married his first cousin (the Duke of York's daughter). So, he wasn't that foreign. So, British experience wasn't likely a factor, nor is that reflected in the record.

The issue for the Founders was foreign influence, which was debated during the qualifications for House and Senate. There wasn't a lot of agreement on this issue however. And it should be noted that the Constitution grandfathered in anyone who was a citizen of the United States at the time the Constitution was adopted, this you could be foreign born at that time (like Alexander Hamilton) and become President.

Pretty good article on this here.

Thanks that's a good read

I say yes


No.

The Presidency is different. A lot of concentrated power in one individual.

But average officials, reps and senators?

Nah.

That's a really nice false dichotomy you've got there.

You're almost as good at it as those on the Left who say if you aren't pro-choice, then you are ok with women being subjugated, oppressed, and killed in botched illegal abortions.

Don't worry. You'll get there with a little more practice.
