We have an age minimum for those running for President. Maybe it’s time to create a maximum age limit for those running for Congress too?
Elon Musk, the creator of Tesla, has recommended that there should be an upper age limit for persons who wish to run for public office.
Earlier this week, Mr. Musk, 50, stated in a tweet that individuals vying for public office should be under the age of 70.
According to Mr. Musk’s tweet, “let’s impose an age restriction after which you are no longer eligible to run for political office, possibly a number slightly below 70.”
Sorry to say, I agree. Cognition declines considerably, as well as physical stamina, in older years. For the most part, a quick mind and physical endurance are needed in a president and I am positively sure the fore-fathers of this nation never thought those elected to Congress would turn those positions into lifetime jobs.
Mr. Musk has expressed his opinions on a number of political issues, despite having stated that he intended to remain out of politics only a few months ago.
He has donated to both political parties and has lately slammed the Biden administration as well as made light of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ age in a series of tweets.
Mr. Musk accused the Biden administration of being “biased” against Tesla and “dominated by labor unions” in his statement.
While addressing at the Code Conference in California in September, Mr. Musk also expressed his opinion that President Biden is “not the warmest of people.”
During an October tweetstorm, Mr. Musk also took a swipe at Mr. Sanders, who was responding to a Vermont Independent article that demanded that the nation’s wealthiest citizens “pay their due share.”
It’s easy for me to forget that you’re still alive,’ Musk said.
“Would you like me to offer you additional shares, Bernie?” the merchant said later. “All you have to do is speak the word.”
