You Would't Have These Problems.

The ridiculous "Birther" issue came up again this week in US politics.  Texas governor and Reputlican presidential candidate Rick Perry flipflopped around about the issue, making it unclear what he actually believes.  Of course there's a simple solution.  Someone needs to introduce a constituional amendment to bring the US in line with a sensible country like Canada.  Make it so anyone who is an American citizen  is eligible to run for the office, instead of needing to be born an American.  Why keep a provision around that discriminates against millions of loyal Americans simply on the basis of their birthplace?
