Cruz Fires Up Crowd {Denton County GOP}
Denton Chronicle Record ^ | Feb. 1, 2014 | Dianna Hunt

Posted on 02/02/2014 5:58:53 AM PST by deport

GRAPEVINE — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz drew whoops, whistles and calls that he run for president Saturday
night at the Denton County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln Reagan Dinner.

Cruz — who surged to national prominence with his fight to repeal the Affordable Care Act — roused
the nearly 1,000 people during the dinner at the Hyatt Regency DFW with calls for a grassroots effort
to put the country back on a path of prosperity.

“There will be another president, and that president may even be of another political party,” he told the crowd.

“Ted Cruz,” came a shout from the audience, to loud

How can he run for President if he was born in Canada?

I understand office holders holding off on endorsements when there is a crowed field of candidates, but, I don’t suppose there is any way that Ted would endorse the person who will be Cornyn’s Primary run-off opponent; is there? That would assure us that Cornhole would be sent home packing his Liberal rags with him. That probably won’t happen, but I sure enjoy the thought.

I guess that will be determined if and when he may decide to make the run.

Not if he holds to what is attributed to him in this article.

...Cruz has declined to endorse Cornyn, citing his policy of staying neutral
in primaries featuring GOP incumbents. ..

Cruz will not go into the political establishment gutter as Cornyn did as the head of the NRSC in it’s endorsement of Crist over Rubio. Ted has far more class and I think that would sully him for future considerations as he tries to bring our Republic back to a moral standing in the world. That does not go to say that he specifically does not speak well of him, and furthermore, he says nothing at all about him. Silence is golden for Cruz.

Lots of Cruz birthers around FR got the zot. You might want to be careful.

Cruz was born to an American mother, and is an American.

He can and should run for President.

Where Cruz was born is not the issue. Where both parents were born will become the issue.

Surely you must be jesting after witnessing the Kenyan-born, foreign, communist, POS that occupies our WH now???? Really?
To quote another big communist lib: “What Difference Does It Make?...”
Let’s put their evil, liberal, communist mantra right back up their sorry asses and hear em howl like starving babies. Ted Cruz for President of the United States.

Which is rather scary come to think about it.

In addition to those who are born in the United States or born outside the country to parents who were both citizens — or, interestingly, found in the United States without parents and no proof of birth elsewhere — citizenship goes to babies born to one American parent who has spent a certain number of years here.

That single-parent requirement has been amended several times, but under the law in effect between 1952 and 1986 — Cruz was born in 1970 — someone must have a citizen parent who resided in the United States for at least 10 years, including five after the age of 14, in order to be considered a natural-born citizen.

I love Cruz but I keep waiting for the moment when he reveals himself as Not One Of Us.

So far, he does not seem that clueless, but then so did Rubio.

That part of the Constitution which would have rendered Cruz ineligible to be President has been made de facto irrelevant.

Alan Dershowitz, the leftist law perfesser, has weighed in, and said that Cruz is perfectly fine to run for President.

I don't see the left making a big deal out of it.

And who cares if they scream bloody murder? Do you not enforce household rules if your kids scream bloody murder?

Grow a pair. Ignore the whiners.

Please point out chapter and verse where it states in the U.S. Constitution, Supreme Court Ruling or U.S. Law passed by Congress and Signed by the President where being Natural Born means being born of 2 US Citizens.

Wikipedia has Ted Cruz’s father becoming a naturalized citizen as late as 2005. Yes I know wikipedia can be written by anyone, but if this is true then forget it - Cruz is not eligible. End of argument. Believe me I wish to hell he was, but this is the same situation as BHO only Cruz admits he was born in Canada.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Cruz

The elder Cruz fled Cuba in 1957 at the age of 18, landing in Austin,[18] becoming a Cuban émigré, to study at the University of Texas, knowing no English and with $100 sewn into his underwear.[22][23] His younger sister fought in the counter-revolution and was tortured by the new regime.[20] He remained regretful for his early support of Castro, and emphatically conveyed this remorse to his young son over the following years.[13][20] The elder Cruz worked his way through college as a dishwasher, making 50 cents an hour,[12] earning a degree in mathematics.[18] Cruz’s father today is a pastor in Carrollton, Texas,[11] a Dallas suburb, and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2005.[24]

Please show the relevant passage from the US Constitution, the relevant US Supreme Court ruling, or the relevant US Law passed by Congress and signed by a US President that defines Natural Born, in terms of constitutionality, requiring both parents of a child to be a US Citizen at birth.

Article Two, Section 1 of the United States Constitution sets forth the eligibility requirements for serving as President of the United States:

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

OK, I see what you are saying. It does not define natural born.

By the way- Isn’t everyone “natural born”?? In the history of man has anyone ever been unnaturally born? Maybe test tube babies?

Exactly!

And I've read the opinions of those alive at the birth of our country who fell on both sides of this argument, that it takes 2 and some says it takes 1 US Citizen parent to make a child a natural born citizen of the US.

So until and unless either Congress or the US Supreme Court steps up to the plate and defines it for us as 2 citizen parents, Ted Cruz IS a natural born citizen and completely able to seek the position of President of the United States.

This whole topic has given me a bad case of Blogger's Itch.

Both of you learned posters have equally cogent, if not equally valid arguments. However, I am willing to wager that neither of you is about to cash a SCOTUS paycheck.

I trust that within my rather limited lifetime, the SCOTUS will get off its cowardly black-robed ass and accept one of the many solid appeals that has wended its torturous way to them. They may be waiting until after the presernt recumbent and his pal Reggie leave the White House? By which time Raoul Castro will be on the Supreme Court?

Questions of Constitutionality are in their bailiwick.

The term Natural born Citizen appears in our Constitution, in Article 1, Section 2, with these words, “No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.”

Before the Constitution the closest reference we have to Natural Born Citizen is from the legal treatise “the Law of Nations,” written by Emerich de Vattel in 1758. In book one chapter 19,

§ 212. Of the citizens and natives.

“The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

It’s indisputable that the Framers of our Constitution relied heavily on the writings of Vattel to create our Constitution.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
No one can predict that one way or the other. There is always a very low voter turn-out in the Primaries and most people who vote in the Primaries are die-hard Conservatives and the elderly. Anything can happen when there are six or seven names on the ballot. You have a Conservative Congressman that many people like (Steve Stockman) and a Hispanic lady (Linda Vega). Both of them will draw form their voting blocks; ultra Conservatives for Stockman and women and Hispanics for Vega. Then, you have Dwayne Stovall whom one has to believe will do pretty well because he has been working very hard for votes. And then, you have the others. Stranger things have happened. REMEMBER TED CRUZ!
