I hate to say this fellow FReeper, but the Constitution is silent on the subject of dual citizenship. Probably because there was no such thing in the 18th century. I think it would be a real stretch though, for a court to decide the Constitution would allow it! Especially since it clearly states that the office be held only by a natural-born American.
As recently as the early 70s, the USA did NOT recognize dual-citizenship for adults, At age 18, those eligible for dual-citizenship with another country had to officially choose the USA or the other. It has since changed and I can only imagine it was a democrat initative.
However, dual citizenship does make one ineligible for a security clearance!!
Further down in the complaint, they claim that Obama went to Pakistan and used his Indonesian passport.
First of all, why did he have an Indonesian passport in the first place? Why did he not use his us PASSPORT.
Second, why is a 20 year old college student going to Pakistan? It’s not like Pakistan is a cultural center of the world or that it has such nice beaches and ski resorts.
Third, the complaint makes the request that Obama PROVE that he is eligible to be president of the US. Is that so unreasonable?
In the Iran-Contra Affair (a failed follow-on to the deft international poker-playing wherein Renaldo Magnus won back all our dear fellow-citizens held hostage for 444 days, no thanks to Jimmah Cartuh) Robert McFarlane is said to have traveled to Iran, then not enterable under US passport, under an Irish passport. Ireland used to allow US citizens to claim an additional citizenship in Ireland if a grandparent was a native-born Irish citizen, even if the US citizen and his parents had never stepped foot in Ireland.
“In my understanding Article II Requires that one be a Natural Born Citizen, and in terms of the Law as understood by the Framers, anyone with Dual Citizenship could not be Natural Born. It does not matter that they no longer hold that Citizenship, they fall into the same bracket as a Naturalized Citizen because they have/had Divided Allegiance. That is my view and I havent moved an inch on it.”
