I Will NOT Vote for Marco Rubio If He Is Selected as VP

I will not vote for Marco Rubio as Vice President if Mitt Romney selects him to run on his ticket.  He is NOT constitutionally eligible to be President or Vice President, and I would be a damn hypocrite in holding my ire and giving him my vote after working as hard as possible to educate people on Barack Obama’s ineligibility.

Call me a Birther, call me a Tea Party hick, call me an “extremist” or racist, I could give a flying forgery.  I just don’t care anymore.  I’m not going to be like one of those liberals who complain about the rich not paying more taxes and not voluntarily putting their money where there mouth is.  And conservatives have constantly compromised on principle to the point where most Americans don’t think there is much difference in the spending habits of either party. 

If you consider yourself a conservative – let me advise you that you can’t buy back your integrity when it’s convenient

No.

How about you summarize the rest, since there seems to be something objectionable preventing it's being posted in full.

He is eligible. Just saying he isn’t over and over changes nothing.

Politijim,
First of all, I think we need some supportable evidence that Marco Rubio is not eligible to be VP. Second of all, if you allow the selection of a conservative VP candidate to be the key to your decision on whether to vote against Obama or not, then you are not particularly capable of assessing priorities and analyzing outcomes. Perhaps you should refrain from blogging. Go back home and be the closet liberal that you are.

They will be violating your right to a constitutional government.

Romney-the-Backstabbing RINO is NOT a conservative
substitute for Obama-the-Undocumented-Tyrant in any way.

NO RINOs. Mr. RomneyCARE will NOT get conservatives’ votes.

Then you and your ilk have clearly decided that 4 more years of Obama and his communist followers is good enough for you. I hope America is still here after 4 more years of Obama so you can share your very limited wisdom with us next time. I am very conservative, so please don't tell me that only a RINO would vote for Romney. I did not support Romney in the primaries, but I will vote for him in the general election because Obama must be stopped. By not voting, you are helping Obama win and for that, I have absolutely no respect.

The Dirty “little” Secret Of The Natural Born Citizen Clause Revealed.

I have emphasized the word “little” because the truth of the law on this issue is very simple, folks. So simple that the mystery is deciphered by application of one of the most clear, concise and undeniable rules of law; the code of statutory construction governs, and therefore, “natural born Citizen” must require something more than being born in the United States.

Let me put it to you in appropriately simple language:

Clause A = “Only a natural born Citizen may be President.”

Clause B = “Anyone born in the United States is a Citizen.”

(While these two clauses reflect Article 2, Section 1, and the 14th Amendment, I shall refer to them as “Clause A” and “Clause B” for now.)

The code of statutory construction is learned by every student in law school, and every practicing attorney has confronted it. Every judge is required to apply the rule equally to all statutes, and the Constitution. There is no wiggle room at all. The rule states that when a court examines two clauses, unless Congress has made it clear that one clause repeals the other, the court must observe a separate legal effect for each. More specifically, regardless of the chronology of enactment, the general clause can never govern the specific.

Clause B is a general rule of citizenship, which states that all persons born in the country are members of the nation.

Clause A is a specific clause that says only those members of the nation who are “natural born” may be President.

According to the rule of statutory construction, the court must determine that Clause A requires something more than Clause B.

It’s truly that simple. ...

He was born here in the U.S. so he can be VP and President. Anyone who tells me someone who was actually born here in the U.S. is someone who is not in the least knowledgeable about what it is to be an American.

Until the Supreme Court rules specifically on the question of natural born citizen as it applies to eligibility to hold the office of president, there will be disagreement among very smart constitutional people as to the meaning.

It is true that somebody with US Citizen parents is considered to be natural born, but nothing I’ve read tells me that’s the only criteria. There are other cases that show a person born in the United States to be “natural born” regardless of the citizenship of their parents.

For now, thanks to Obama’s election, the standard is “born in the USA”. Until the court rules otherwise, I will vote for a Romney/Rubio ticket.

I’ll make this simple. If you were born here in the U.S. you are a citizen and can run for any office no matter what anyone else thinks.

Anyone who thinks you cannot will be laughed at by the population.

He was born to two parents legally in America. I agree with Mark Levin that Marco is eligible. In fact, I will think Romney politically stupid if he chooses someone else. Rubio will actually excite the base more than Romney ever could.

OMG, it's deja-vu all over again. What is so difficult to understand about not voting for someone, as opposed to supporting someone else?

No he's not.

If you think he is eligible then any Mexican women that sneaks 5 feet inside the fence and drops an anchor baby that person is ALSO eligible.

If someone like Rubio gets in there and gives amnesty to millions of Mexicans the Republic is GONE and we won't get it back peacefully.

I have to go with the OP. Rubio is an absolute deal breaker. We have an ineligible man in the white house now, we must never have another if we are going to survive as a nation.

Talk about giving aid and comfort to the enemy........Obama! No vote for Romney is a vote for Obama, and Marxism and radical supreme court justices, and higher taxes and welfare and fast and furious, and unemployment, and Nancy & harry, and solyndra. Bottom line I’d take Rubio in a heartbeat is he the best around, hell no but at least loves this country.
