It should have been banned decades ago. For VERY OBVIOUS reasons.

Obonzo is a good example of why the Founders did it.

My take on "dual citizenship"...

Many years ago, a wise man commented on a combination tool I had bought on a bargain table...it was a pair of pliers, with one handle ending in an "adjustable wrench"...I was only 12, what did I know...it was cheap, it was shiney and it was mine to use to work on my bike or my go kart.

Anyway, the wise man saw it, chuckled and said, "Son, remember...anything made to do TWO things, does each one only HALF AS WELL.".

That wise man was my Dad, and I've always noted that he was right, and I never bought another "combination" tool. His advice apples to a lot more than tools though.

If you walk down the middle of the road, you'll get hit from both directions. Right or wrong, take a stand...it builds character.

Here’s a question for you: what if Hugo Chavez declared all US citizens to be Venezuelan citizens, a right passed that cannot be renounced? Then who could you elect as the next President?

We should ignore what other nations may try to bestow on an individual; it matters what the individual claims for themselves.

If you are born on a US Naval vessel to two US citizen parents, you are considered a natural born citizen by the US. But if that naval vessel was in Canadian waters, then Canada also considers you a Canadian citizen. Does the fact that Canada conferred citizenship to you make you a non-natural born citizen?

Many of us are duals. It depends on the country where one was born under their laws…like McCain who is dual but won’t admit it.

At this point, with all the crooks in congress, president, and the U.S. Supreme Court, I would love to kiss my U.S. citizenship goodbye. The problem is, according to U.S. law, I would have to continue paying U.S. taxes for at least the next ten year.

I am totally fed up with my own robber country.

Further, if one puts folks with duals to choose, the U.S. will no longer be their first choice.

I am fed up. I realized a few months ago I have no desire to return to my country. It is a total mess.

Practically speaking....nothing is going to change.

If you are born of two American citizens, you are natural born.It doesn’t matter where the birth takes place; having tow US citizens for parents is what does matter.

In Obama’s case, only one parent is a US citizen. Therefore he is not natural born.

Since there is a divorce decree for the Obamas, one has to assume a marriage took place, even if the documentation is not yet found.

If the Obamas were married,their son is still not natural born.

If they were not legally married, he is still not natural born.

If Barry is illegitmate, i.e. no marriage took place, or it was bigamous, Barry is still the product of only one US citizen, not two.

It seems like Barry is not a natural born citizen under any of the scenarios presented, as he does not meet the definition of two US citizens. Even if the British Act of 1948 does not convey British citizenship to him if was born as an illegimate, that still does not change the fact that his father was NOT an American citizen.

So he does not meet the definition of natural born in the law.

1) America has never legally recognized dual citizenship, and the framers never intended for a dual national to hold the highest office in the land

The first part is completely false. The second half may well be true but it's questionable if it would currently apply to Obama.

I never got past the first sentence: Until recent decades, American public policy consistently prohibited dual citizenship as half my family carries at a minimum dual citizenship status (US and Ireland). My Dad carried simultaneously: US, Australian, Irish and held a Certificate of British Patriality. It is possible to swear allegiance to the crown and the US Constitution concurrently.
