Should adopted U.S citizens be able to run for president?

for example if a kid is born in another country and is adopted as an infant by a US couple, do you think when they are old enough they should be allowed to run for the office of U.S president. Right now they can't because they aren't natural citizens. I think they should as long as the adoption occurs within the first few years of life. I also think lots of rules that we've had forever seem quite ridiculous and out of place in modern society.

Nope.
If you don't like the rules, petition to get the rules changed.
Until then, follow the rules.

Actually, if you check out my other posts, you'll see that I'm one of the most liberal people on this site.
I voted for President Obama, twice, and was proud to do so.
I'm just saying that the United States Constitution is quite clear about who may and who may not be President. There are certain requirements that our Founding Fathers decided upon that we must follow.
If you wish for an adopted-citizen to run for President, then you'll need to get a Constitutional Amendment passed to allow that.
Until then, the Constitution is the law of the land.
Sorry.

Yes, that makes sense. I don't think a child being born in the US should be enough to make him or her a citizen, either.

why shouldn't they be allowed to? After all they would've grown up in the country and called it home since childhood?

That's just my opinion. I think the U. S. constitution was written by some of the wisest men who ever lived and I don't want it messed with.
