How can a person who is born a British subject be considered a natural born citizen of the United States? Because the United States has always recognized the definition of citizenship of common law, as outlined in Blackstone, as compared to that of European continental civil law, as defined in Vattel? The most bizarre claim of the birthers is this one. It uses a law system utterly foreign to US legal history to define a term used in our Constitution.

ROTB's comment makes more sense to me. Thanks, ROTB...you are thinking straight!

Thank you. I blow it from time to time, so when I do, please don’t think I am above correction.

I love this country, and am sad to see it falling.

I hope we get to see another Presidential election.

I hope Sarah won’t backstab us like every one else.
