Hello, next years, two candidats will probably run for president and be above 70. D. Trump will be 74 B. Sanders will be 79 By the way, I don't consider it's fine to discriminate against people, but starting an age, it's not only about back pain, and your brain start to age aswell. I don't mean that all old people are stupid or something else, by the way we could argue that some old people are much smarter and wiser than younger people. However, the more we age, the more the risk of dementia, alzheimer appear. People who took care of old people could confirm that one of the first warning sign of dementia could be an increased agressivity before the dementia is diagnosed. Furthermore, starting an age, there is an increased risk of an invalidating stroke. I don't consider that the argument that old people are out of touch of some societial evolutions is valid. Some old people manage to keep in touch, and it's also because they don't care of some trends that some old people are wiser. Would you agree to put an age limit to be president ? It's not a debate about Mr Trump or Mr Sanders themselves. If you want to scream your hatred of one or another, find another thread.
