“Agreed. Born in another country to parents who are not both citizens? How could that be considered natural born? So if a Saudi prince takes an American wife and has children born in Saudi Arabia, they are natural born Americans? That sounds like complete nonsense to me.”
Yes, this is the exact standard that apparently is ‘good enough’. You share my precise concerns.
Why have a citizen at all? Why have a residency requirement? Because the constitution says so?
We have been told that ‘slippery slope is a fallacy. I recall, less than 10 years ago being told that sex education for kindergartners was a myth. Now, today, it is a reality. We open the doors to this - we’ll see the floodgates opened. Where Americans are governed not by one of their own but by a foreigner who’s never set foot in America. We had that once before - in King George.
Why are you even a FReeper? If you don’t like what we stand for, bail the hell out now while you still have a choice to do so on your own.
IF Cruz runs and IF he’s the strongest conservative running (which no doubt he will be, look up his record) he will have my support 100%!! And I’m not going to allow the crap that happened during the last two presidential cycles to happen again. RINO supporters can go straight to hell as far as I’m concerned along with any “conservative” who supports amnesty.
This is rebellion (a voter rebellion)!! Look up the Declaration. See if you can figure out what is says about consent of the governed and what that means. See if you can find the Founders’ remedy for despotic government.
Live free or die!!
We have not yet begun to fight!!
