IF A WOMAN COULDN'T VOTE AT THE TIME OF THE ADOPTION OF THE CONSTITUTION...HOW COULD SHE POSSIBLY BE POTUS?...
Unconstitutional for woman to be president
Received Jan. 22
A friend and I have unearthed a constitutional issue, which prevents a woman from becoming President.
Article II of the Constitution, concerning the executive branch of our government, refers to the President using the words “he,” “him,” and “his,” never as “she,” “her,” or “hers.”
So the intent of the Constitution is that the President be a man, not a woman. As further evidence of this, Amendment XIX, states “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” Amendment XIX, therefore, gave women the right to vote in 1920.
It would be illogical to assume that, when the Constitution was ratified in 1787, one hundred and thirty-three years earlier, a woman could be President, although she was not allowed to vote.
Amendment XIX gave women the right to vote, however there is no Amendment allowing a woman to be President. This would disqualify Carly Fiorina and Hillary Clinton from becoming president. I have nothing against an otherwise qualified woman becoming President, however, at present, the Constitution does not allow that.
A Constitutional Amendment will be required.
