The XXVIII Amendment
One of my (day job) co-workers had to call off of work last week because her Father was missing. My co-worker is 55 years old and her Father is 79. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a few years back, but he refused to stop driving. Apparently he went to the local store, became disoriented, and drove around the county for 12 hours. Thankfully, he turned up less than 10 miles from his home, pulled over by police for driving erratically at 3 A.M. in the morning.
"In most people with Alzheimer's disease, symptoms first appear after age 60. About 3 percent of men and women ages 65 to 74 have the disease, but nearly half of those age 85 and older may have the disease. The average age at diagnosis is about 80. It is not uncommon for individuals to have mild symptoms for some time before a diagnosis is made."

Maybe we should pass the 28th Amendment. No American citizen can be voted President after the age of 75.
You're screaming at the monitor that your politician is sane, but not the politician on the other side of the aisle? Guess what? During the next election cycle, statistics say that ONE of the 4 politicians above will have Alzheimer's.
You say we can't set age limits on candidates, that's ageism?
We sure can set age limits. The Constitution itself says you have to be a minimum of 35 years old to be President. The 28th Amendment will set the maximum age of the President at 75 years old (on election day.) Hell, let's do the same for Congresspersons.
You want me to question Libertarian Vermin Supreme's sanity?
He may look like he's 80, but he's actually only 60.
Besides, he's wearing a fucking boot on his head. What do you think's going on there?
