Did you know the U.S. Constitution states that a person must be at least 35 to be president?

(And most people agree "millennials" are anyone between the ages of 21 and 34.)

That means millennials cannot currently be president!

But here are just a few reasons people under 35 should be able to take their experience and smarts all the way to the White House.

First of all, millennials can do (and have done!) LOTS of other impressive things. Like...

...start their own businesses! (Millennials are the most entrepreneurial generation.)

And they care just as much about their purpose and values as they do about making a profit.

They've already changed the world in some pretty cool ways.

Plus, millennials really "get" the world — and that's totally a reason they should be able to lead our country. For example...

...they're the most diverse generation ever (and the largest)!

And they're comfortable in their own skin. They even embrace being geeky!

They are also super aware of social issues.

So, unsurprisingly, millennials are the most accepting and tolerant generation.

Especially when it comes to interracial relationships and gay marriage.

They're excited to invest time, money, and services in causes they care about.

And now that millennials are officially the largest generation, they're going to have a big influence in upcoming elections.

So shouldn’t they be allowed to represent the country?

That's why Captain Morgan started the #UNDER35POTUS petition, to give all of those under 35 the chance to be president.
