CatherineofAragon: “You are either a naturalized citizen, or a citizen at birth (natural born).”

That makes sense to me. Thanks.

I wish we could all be more patient with dissenting views—

Dissenting views don't include outright, flat-footed lies about a conservative politician holding a Canadian passport.

I don't want a known liar and attacker of conservatives back.

if Paul and Cruz both run, expect a nasty dogfight in the grassroots. Previous examples of intramural viciousness ...
PatRobertson vs. Jack Kemp in ‘88
Huckabee vs. Brownback in ‘08 Iowa
and Bachmann Iowa ‘12 got a bit crude.

Rand-Paul not necessarily involved himself ... see his recent comments about Cruz citizenship ... but the paulistas like to freelance.

The Paulistas are strong enough in western NH to successfully undermine Cruz there. It would be best if Paul were to not run and, instead, endorse Cruz.

Is the zampolit aware you are messing with your kitchen tap? It was set for you and shouldn't need adjustment.?

The EPA has also just released regulations designating sinks as "protected wetlands" and faucets as protected wetland "feeder sources".

Not only was it a lie, it was a moot point.

Holding a Canadian passport would not preclude him from the Presidency

Holding a Swiss passport did not stop Michelle Bachman from running.

I can say some nice things (things I like) about Rand Paul, but I suspect he's been infected by some of his dad's foreign policy weaknesses. One other thing - there is something somehow feminine about his voice and his manner. I know he can't help that, but it's there and it won't help in a presidential campaign.

I have to say that I have much more confidence in Ted Cruz. I don't think that there's anyone else out there with his qualities.

Ted Cruz - 2016

Post #19 wasn’t directed at me, but I don’t know of anything that would show Senator Cruz has divided loyalties.

That said, JCBreckenridge was replying politely. Whether Jim enforces the rules or not, STFU is hardly civil discussion and includes an obscenity. Yeah. We understand acronyms. Again, it’s Jim’s board, but I don’t like it when people are jerks to other people.

JRandomFreeper: “I don’t want a known liar and attacker of conservatives back.”

I was trying to get JCBreckenridge to explain and/or prove his statement in post #12 that Senator Cruz has a Canadian passport. He should be required to prove it, but he’s unfortunately zotted.

I have absolutely nothing against challenging people when they write something that isn’t true. I expect and want to be challenged myself. #1 so I can learn. #2 so conservative lurkers could also learn the truth.

I think the board rules are good ones. We should be able to discuss things politely without resorting to personal attacks. JCBreckenridge should have been held to task for post #12, but that can be done respectfully.

I suspect some posters don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to the actual law and the constitution but they have so much invested emotionally in the crackpot birther conspiracy theory that they’re caught in a trap of their own making. Gonna have to chew their own leg off to get free.

The Constitution has been bastardized at every turn by the ruling elites for years. Ted Cruz is one of very few who actually uphold, revere and honor our Constitution. This issue is what some posters want to hang their "constitutional" hat on? Personally, my opinion is that these anti-Cruz posters are GOPe infiltrators.

Life is short. Breckenridge was a member from 3-2012 until 9-2013, and the owner of this site determined that he was not an asset.

I'm not going to mourn his passing.

How about your own flat footed lie that I was Lindsay Graham's butt boy and supported him, does that count? Or are you somehow immune from your own criticism?

Which is all so stupid and self defeating. What voters in primaries really want is a vision for beating the libs.....but consultants and candidates are often too stupid and too duped by conventional wisdom to figure this out. Newt proved this twice in 2011-12, and then he and his consultants got stupid too.....

The US Constitution explicitly distinguishes between the natural born citizens and those born outside of the united states who become citizens. Article II, Section 1 of the US Constitution.

Why did the Fathers include this? They included this because they wanted to be sure that the highest office in the land was someone who was free of entanglements and was loyal to the united states, in an empirical fashion that would not change. You can purchase and acquire citizenship - where you are born cannot change.


Once again for those born in Rio Linda:

Please show me in the US Constitution the relevant parts that define "Natural Born" as requiring 2 citizen parents?

Lacking that, please provide references/links to relevant US Laws passed by Congress and signed by a US President that define the "Natural Born" requirement as needing 2 citizen parents.

Lacking that, please provide references/links to Supreme Court rulings that define "Natural Born" as needing 2 citizen parents.

Until you can do that, there is no Constitutional requirement with regards to POTUS "Natural Born" requiring 2 citizen parents.

Cruz had to reside in America in order to keep his American citizenship. This is not true of natural born citizens. He is a Canadian citizen as well as an American citizen. He would be eligible for Cuban citizenship (through his father), at the time of his birth.

Please list the relevant US Law, or Supreme Court ruling or part of the US Constitution that declares that this is so.

Otherwise, you are presenting your opinion as fact, and my FRiend, that is dishonest.

You know, folks like say .... Senator Rick Santorum (although it apparently wasn't necessary for Senator Santorum to remain in the Senate back then - for the good of the country).

I think you will find a fair number of Rand Paul supporters in that group as well.

What voters in primaries really want is a vision

2 millions adults in IA. 100,000 will do the GOP caucus.
Vision takes a back seat to field organizing.

Vision has its limitations in NH too.

The Paulistas are strong enough in western NH to successfully undermine Cruz there. It would be best if Paul were to not run and, instead, endorse Cruz.
It would be best that Rand Paul not run because he has his own Amnesty Proposal.

Any candidate who thinks Amnesty is a good thing cannot be trusted and does not have the health and welfare of this country at heart but his/her own political ambitions. This also means that such candidate does not care about what is best for the citizens he/she is supposed to be leading.

Furthermore, because of the destruction such policy would impose on the US, I can only consider Rand Paul, or anyone else that proposes Amnesty, a Traitor!

Baraq organized like a madman and a community organizer. Hillary ignored the caucus states, thinking she would have the thing wrapped up after a few primaries.

she followed the mark Penn strategy
“ Penn also pushed the “big states” strategy that essentially ceded smaller states and caucuses to Obama. Some say this enabled the huge victory margins that translated into what is now a nearly-insurmountable pledged delegate lead for Obama.

After Clinton didn’t do as well as she hoped on Super Tuesday — a date when staffers had long predicted she would virtually wrap up the nomination — campaign senior adviser Harold Ickes told the New York Observer that Penn’s claim that he did not bear responsibility for her performance didn’t hold water, and that the strategist was “the single most responsible person for this campaign” besides the candidate herself.
