It's hard to argue with people that haven't spent 1/100th of the time looking into this that I have. There is ZERO doubt in my mind that the founders meant the president to have to be born in the USA by TWO citizen parents.
The John Jay letter, Vattel’s “The Law of Nations”, Which WAS in English at the time! Which WAS in the very library where they were writing the constitution.
If you were not born in the lower 48 your NBC status may be in question. If you were born in a U.S. territory or possession your NBC status may be in question. Hawaii had funny laws, Alaska may have had as well both being new states. Territories and possessions have a myriad of laws and provisions about plain old citizenship let alone NBC status.
People just can't differentiate between “natural born citizen” and “native born citizen” and just plain old “citizen”. They THINK they understand it. Most don't.
Obama is definitely not a natural born citizen if his parents are who he says they were. Personally I think he was born in Kenya, but that doesn't really matter even if he was.
The constitution is dead. With justices ruling using precedent, foreign law, and their imaginations instead of original intent, we are finished as a country. We are too far gone to turn it around. The past election was our final chance, and only a chance, to turn it around. Now we are done. Just face it, we LOST! It is our own fault. We didn't fight hard enough. We went to a prize fight with both our hands tied behind our back. There an effeminate pussy who can't sink a basket, beat the crap out of us.
Agreed! And what better justification does one need for this requirement other than the agenda of the current occupant?
I wonder at the pushing of Rubio by some of our own.
Resident, non-citizen parents, at the time of his birth and for years after. (5?)
That should make him unqualified. I understand Mark Levin disagrees. I respect Mark but have not been able to find his reasoning on this issue. Was he misled, as I was, when his parents were reported to be citizens (no date given originally).
