    I wish people would stop calling them leaders.

    They are supposed to be representatives.

    I wouldn't follow those folks any place.

    I don't live in a lot of places. For example, I don't live in Azerbaijan. Nor do I live in Connecticut. So any "public official" or "elected representative" in Connecticut is just as much a "dual-citizenship foreigner" to me regardless of whether his forebears came over on the Mayflower or he (or his forebears) came from Azerbaijan.

    IOW: As far as I'm concerned, Congress is composed of 532 foreigners ... (and I'm not so sure about the other three, either ...)

    Some "foreigners" are more distant geographically, culturally and share fewer interests than others.

    Your point is a good one however, we do need separation from some of those representatives and their constituents but that doesn't change the problem that this is intended to deal with.

    People with any citizenship other than America can't be trusted.

    They're shifty.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    I think we should extend this to also ban anyone who has ever lived overseas. (besides military obviously)

    They can't be trusted to serve Americans instead of their other country.

    They shouldn't even be allowed to vote.

    I said that they should have to give up one citizenship or the other but if we can't get that then keeping them out of positions in government will help.

    Can't trust Americans either. Better keep out those with foreign spouses too.
